What is “excess internal heat” in Traditional Chinese Medicine?
Hong Kong people have a stressful urban life. Long working hours, stress, inadequate sleep are common problems working people face every day. Forget about having fun eating with friends after work because a heavy dinner with beer or wine can make you feel even more exhausted. Do you often feel a lack of energy when exercising or even simply walking up stairs? These are all signs of yin deficiency. If yin deficiency comes together with thirst, mouth dryness, a hoarse voice, hot flashes, fatigue, very yellow urine or constipation, then most probably you are experiencing hyperactivity of fire due to yin deficiency.
In Chinese Medicine, when the harmony between the body’s physical form and its functions are disturbed and exhaustion follows, the body cannot recover the flow of chi and production of body fluid.
