Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the most important thing of stomach is “nourishing”. Traditional Chinese medicine attaches great importance to the stomach qi, and holds that “if there is stomach qi, it will be born; if there is no stomach qi, it will die.”. It shows that the spleen and stomach is the “source of Qi and blood biochemistry”, and it is the “acquired foundation”. The spleen and stomach bear all the energy sources of our body. The spleen and stomach are exuberant, and the source of transformation is sufficient. The five viscera and six Fu organs will be strong and the body will be healthy.
once the spleen and stomach goes wrong, it will not only affect appetite, sleep, mood, but also induce a variety of gastrointestinal diseases and systemic diseases.
we often eat some porridge when our stomach is uncomfortable. We feel that porridge is easy to digest and has no burden to eat. Many elderly people even drink porridge every day as their staple food, and eat very little other food. They think this is the way to keep healthy.

The reason is very simple, the lack of chewing porridge, food into the stomach, because of the lack of salivary amylase, digestion time extended, porridge and diluted gastric juice, will cause gastrointestinal peristalsis become abnormal slow.
in the long run, the gastric acid secretion function will be decreased, and the stomach will gradually lose the protection of gastric mucosa. Just like a person who does not exercise for a long time, his blood circulation slows down, his metabolism slows down, and he is easy to get sick.
when our stomach is sour, we often think of eating some soda biscuits to neutralize the stomach acid. Too much acid in the stomach and a small amount of soda crackers and soda water do help.
but many friends who don’t like sweets but pay attention to health care, long-term consumption of soda biscuits and other alkaline foods will neutralize gastric acid and improve the pH value of the stomach, which will backfire.
because our stomach itself is a slightly acidic to strong acid environment, it can reduce gastric bacterial infection. Gastric acid is less, digestive capacity is decreased, miscellaneous bacteria are increased, and gastritis is more likely to occur. And soda biscuits are not low in fat and not so healthy!
meat contains more high-quality protein, essential fatty acids and other nutrients than plants, which are needed in the process of gastric mucosal repair and renewal. Long term vegetarianism can also lead to nutritional imbalance. No matter whether the stomach is good or not, we should eat some animal food such as lean meat, fish, eggs, milk and so on.
