Women are cold by nature, so they are afraid of the cold; Men are born with Yang dryness, so they are afraid of heat. In cold winter, men and women always have different perceptions of temperature. Accordingly, there is the saying that "men nourish the kidney and women nourish the liver".

traditional Chinese medicine believes that the kidney has the functions of storing essence, controlling growth, development, reproduction and water metabolism, which is known as the "congenital foundation". Kidney deficiency and essence loss is one of the important factors causing visceral dysfunction and diseases. Therefore, health practitioners take nourishing the kidney as an important measure of anti-aging and anti-aging.

during the winter solstice, men should control sexual intercourse according to their actual situation. They should not be tired and hurt their kidney qi due to improper sexual intercourse. The kidney is the innate foundation. If the kidney essence is sufficient, the internal organs are prosperous, the disease resistance is strong, and the body is strong, people can live a long life. On the contrary, the deficiency of kidney essence leads to the deficiency and failure of the five zang organs, multiple diseases and early death. Strict and regular abstinence from sex life is a necessary guarantee for health and longevity.

The liver is responsible for storing blood and regulating blood volume. If there is a problem with the blood supply in the body, the liver must be blamed, so nourishing the liver must nourish blood. Women can eat more onions, garlic, buckwheat, shepherd's purse, spinach, celery, chrysanthemum, lettuce, eggplant, cucumber, mushroom, etc.

traditional Chinese medicine believes that the liver cannot be replenished. Once replenished, it will get angry. Tonifying the spleen and kidney can nourish the liver.
