Numbers have all kinds of meaning for different people, and in the Chinese medicine, it is no different. There are the five elements and the four searches the eight principles of the diagnosis.There are numeric cycles of growth for both men and women. as people age, they are going through the cycles of the eight years of growth, and women go through growth cycles at seven-year intervals thereafter.
Girls today the subject of this post.At the age of seven, according to the Chinese medical texts, girls have their baby teeth replaced by permanent and abundant. their hair grows at the age of 14, girls have matured in young women and their time limits commence. At the age of 21, their essence peaks, growth is to its utmost and so on, up to the age 49 where the essence is exhausted and menopause occurs.
Sounds pretty simple, right?Well, it used to be, but the girls of today have changed. twenty or thirty years ago, girls were … girls. However, a new study suggests that the girls of today through puberty, any earlier than that of a few decades ago, back in the age of seven or eight. Seriously, there are seven and eight-year-olds breasts grow and date as those periods.
Though no one knows exactly why this is happening, there are a number of theories floating around out there. one is that in the United States, girls thicker. The average Body Mass Index for girls (a measure of weight, height, also an indicator of fatness) has been increasing steadily over the last twenty or thirty years. Of puberty, a girl must achieve a certain weight and fat distribution, an eight-year-old around the weight/fat from a 12-year-old can therefore through puberty early. Small quantities of the hormone estrogen in the fatty tissue of (FAT) are produced, and fat children tend to have elevated levels of the protein leptin, making their hypothalamus and pituitary glands to puberty hormone-free.
In Chinese medicine, is on nutrition, in fact, as a cause of the disease, in particular, obesity. About nutritious foods that are jam-packed with the calories, fat, or are just feeding close are fully included.These foods are considered Yin nature that they are very nutritious., However, that the nutrient quality over gums to working and causes a condition called moisture, that the inability of the body is metabolizing fluids properly. building of moist tissue is heavy and much the same thing as moist … pretty fat.
In addition, food destroyed “food” shall also be regarded as a cause of the disease in Chinese medicine. in ancient times is destroyed food food that was corrupted or otherwise fit for human consumption.Today, food full of preservatives, chemicals, artificial sweeteners, made from animal or vegetable fats and flavors that comes from a laboratory in New Jersey are all considered to be.Most relevant to the precocious puberty are foods that come from animals fed hormones to boost their weight, growth and productivity.
Another theory is that some of the synthetic chemicals in household products and personal care products endocrine disruptors. these chemicals are absorbed by the body and certain hormones, especially estrogen mimic. women who are exposed to these substances have an increased risk of breast cancer, his childhood development agencies also vulnerable to the harmful effects, hormonal changes, the most likely cause of unexpected and early onset of puberty.
In the context of the Chinese medicine, these chemicals are also considered to be an overabundance of toxic substances into our lives. the ancients, toxins came from being bitten by a snake or stung by a poisonous insect. Today, the toxin exposure of the synthetic chemicals in household cleaners, shampoo, SOAP, and moisturizing lotion that are included in our body.
For parents who want to bear in mind that their daughters to grow too quickly, there are a few things you can do. a strategy of physical activity and weight control in combination with clean, healthy food (preferably organic) food and a commitment to chemical-free cleaning and personal products is a good place to start.
