I was told by a friend to boil radial leaves into drinking water for post-Covid treatment, is this correct? (Van Phuong, 40 years old, HCMC)
According to traditional medicine, radial lotus has a bitter taste and cold properties, has the ability to clear heat, detoxify in the lungs, spleen and stomach. When you want to use radial connection, traditional medicine doctors have to diagnose whether the patient is accumulating heat in the lungs and large intestine in order to use it effectively.
If the patient does not accumulate heat, but prolonged use will change the heat sealing properties in the body. Meanwhile, according to oriental medicine, the disease is caused by the imbalance of yin and yang, which means that the welding and heat factors must be kept in balance.
If we keep eating a dish continuously, continuously using a medicine, especially a cold medicine like radial radix, will hurt yang, making the body lean towards cold (cold) more. . Patients will appear more diarrhea, abdominal bloating for no reason, body chills, cold from the knees to the feet…
From the theories of oriental medicine, we do not recommend that patients use inter-radiation for post-Covid treatment. Because in this stage, the patient is suffering from heat damage, which means that the blood and gas damage needs to be used with tonics, while the radial connection does not belong to this group.
