On Summer Nights Avoid the Wind to Avoid the â€œArrowsâ€
A proverb says, â€œOn summer nights avoid the wind to avoid the arrowsâ€; pathogenic wind can cause many kinds of ailments. In the summer the bodyâ€™s skin pores expand, and after we fall asleep our immune resistance drops. Additionally, in the latter half of the night the wind is colder, and at this time itâ€™s extremely easy for the body to suffer an invasion of pathogenic wind.
Getting wind can lead to a heat cold, facial paralysis, joint pain, sciatic nerve pain, shoulder inflammation, stomach pain, diarrhea, etc. Therefore one should enjoy the cool air in limited amounts and put a blanked over oneâ€™s abdomen before sleeping. Itâ€™s inadvisable to choose to stay in a drafty room, and one canâ€™t just spread a summer sleeping mat and sleep on a cement floor.
