[TCM & Health 3] How to deal with infantile fever? Shang San Guan

小儿发热是一种常见病,很多家长一看到小孩发烧就用退烧药,忽略了药物对孩子的负面影响.其实发烧是人体正常的免疫反应,有助于白细胞抵抗细菌毒素.今天我们一起来了解一下如何应对小孩子因受寒引起的发烧.

Infantile fever is a very common phenomenon. Many parents choose to use antipyretic medication as soon as their children get a fever but ignore the negative effects of the medicine. As a matter of fact, a fever is the body's normal immune response and helps the white blood cells counteract with bacterial toxins. Now let's learn to how to deal with infantile fever caused by cold.

随着人们生活水平的提高,现在的孩子经常吃牛奶,肉,海鲜等高蛋白等食物.这些食物增加孩子体内热量,使得孩子更容易感冒,发烧.这时要让孩子发汗,这样既可以把体表的寒邪驱赶出去,也可以让体内多余的热量散发出来,从而起到退烧的作用.小儿推拿术的"推上三关"就有这种功效.

As people's living standard improves, children eat a lot of food full of protein such as milk, meat and seafood. These kinds of food increase the heat in a child's body, making it easier for them to suffer from cold and fever. At this time, parents should help their child to sweat which rids them of cold and extra heat, in order to bring down a fever. Using a baby massage technique called Shang San Guan can also be very effective.

在孩子小臂前侧,自腕横纹至肘部成一条直线,就是上三关了.用拇指或食,中两指自下向上推,就是"推上三关"或"推三关".每天给孩子推100-300遍,就有发汗降热的作用.

Shang San Guan is the line from the rasceta (creases across one's wrist at the base of their palm) to the elbow at the front of a child's forearm. Using the thumb or index and middle finger to push from the wrist to the elbow is the method of Pushing Shang San Guan or Pushing San Guan. If you do it 100 to 300 times a day, the technique can help your child sweat and rid themselves of fever.
