Lamb, fresh and warm tonic
Sheep is a hieroglyph. The oracle inscriptions simulate the sheep’s head, horns, and tail. The strokes gradually evolved into the current “sheep”.
From ancient times to the present day, in people’s impression, sheep is a very docile animal. Because of the tamed nature of the sheep, it represents the image of peace.People’s expectations and wishes.
However, because of the weak image of sheep, idioms such as “lost lamb” and “sheep into tiger’s mouth” are described as helpless and dangerous.
There are also fairy tales of the big wolf and the little sheep.
Moreover, the sheep was also one of the first domestic animals to be tamed by the ancestors. The “Poem · Zhaonan · Lamb” contains the sentence “Lamb’s Skin, Five Silks”, and “Book of Rites” also records “The Moon of Zhongchun . EatingWheat and sheep “, Zhongchun is the second month of the lunar calendar. In this season, the snow and ice begin to melt, and all things recover. At that time, the ancients ate lamb and wheat, and adhered to etiquette, which is an ancient style.
Sheep has been dedicated to one of the five animals since ancient times. It is the most important animal friend of human beings with pigs, cows, dogs, and chickens. Five animals and grains complement each other and provide important animal food for humans.
The ancients believed that the lamb was very delicious, and the words related to sheep were often described as delicious. For example, “fresh” was a combination of “fish” and “sheep”.
In this case, sheep are also used as an important sacrifice, sacrificing their ancestors, because the ancients wanted to occupy the best for their ancestors.
The “three animals” killed by the whole pig, whole cow and all sheep used for sacrifice are very precious sacrifices. The later idiom “three animals and five tripods” means that the sacrifices are very rich.
The mutton tastes delicious and has a good nourishing effect. The Taiyuan physician of the Yuan Dynasty, Hu Sihui, believed that “mutton is sweet, hot, non-toxic, and mainly warm.” It was widely consumed by Mongolian nobles at that time.
Due to the warm nature of mutton, consumption in alpine regions can increase the amount. Now, the integration of Xinjiang, Inner Mongolia and many other regions still retains the habit of eating mutton and lamb soup.
“Compendium of Materia Medica” records: mutton “can replenish Zhongqi Qi, treat cold and cold, and five injuries and seven injuries to her husband.”
“Five labors and seven injuries” is a proper term for Chinese medicine. The so-called “five labors” refers to long-term injury, blood pressure, sedentary injury, long standing injury to bones, and long-term injury; the so-called “seven injuries”It refers to a severe spleen injury, a anger to the liver, a heavy lifting to hurt the kidney, a cold drink to hurt the lungs, anxiety and sadness, a severe wind and cold and summer injury, and fear to understand the wounds.
Five injuries and seven injuries generally refer to the internal injuries caused by inappropriate behavior in life.
In this way, mutton is like “ginseng” in animals, which has a certain therapeutic effect on various deficiency syndromes in the human body.
No wonder the famous doctor of the Tang Dynasty Meng Yue said, “Everything you cook with mutton can make up.
“In ancient times, poor people didn’t have any good food for pregnant women, so they went to the slaughterhouse to pick up the lamb bones and boil soup. As a result, the woman’s production was smooth and the milk was sufficient.
Zhang Zhongjing, a well-known medical doctor in the Han Dynasty, recorded a diet therapy “Angelica Ginger and Lamb Soup” in “A Brief Guide to the Lack of Gold”.
Usually there are two cases of abdominal pain in women. One is infection and the other is blood deficiency. If the abdominal pain caused by infection is called “puerperal fever” by Western medicine, patients usually have low fever and the pain will gradually increase.The next treatment with warm supplements will only aggravate the condition, so the Angelica ginger mutton soup with scattered cold in the middle temperature should be treated. The patient should be caused by postpartum blood loss, showing faint pain in the abdomen.Cold, mutton tonic, clinical application of postpartum blood deficiency is still very effective.
In this case, as an adjuvant treatment of blood deficiency and dysmenorrhea, Angelica ginger mutton soup is also very effective.
Angelica can usually reach 15 grams. Ginger can be increased according to the patient’s taste. The taste can be spicy. Lamb is best to replace lamb, which has a better effect.
The dietary side of “Golden Missing Outline” is said to be the classic origin of subsequent dietary therapies. It implies the meaning of “inadequate people in the Nei Jing” to be warmed by qi; those who are inadequate in fineness to complement the taste.The originator of the therapeutic party.
