Regulating the mind
The people with deficiency of yang mostly manifest bad emotions. For instance, the people with yang deficiency of the liver are susceptible to fear while the people with yang deficiency of the heart are susceptible to grief. These people should properly regulate their emotions to eliminate or reduce the influences of bad emotions.
Regulating according to the environment
The people with yang deficiency have poor ability to adapt themselves to the changes of cold and heat. They feel too cold to endure when it turns slightly cool. Therefore, they should "avoid cold and approach warmth" in winter while they should strengthen yang in spring and summer. These people may take sunbath for 20 to 30 times, 15 to 20 minutes each time in summer. But they can not sleep in the open and should avoid being directly fanned to prevent "wind disorders" like numbness of hands and feet, hemiplegia or facial paralysis.
These people should persevere in physical training, once or twice a day. They can select the events accordingly such as taking a walk, jogging, Taijiquan, five mimic-animal games, eight-section brocade, ball games and various dance activities. They may take sunbath and air bath as well.
Regulating the diet
More foods of strengthening yang should be eaten like mutton, dog meat, venison and chicken. Fuzi (Radix Aconiti Praeparata) Gruel or Yangrou Fuzi Soup (Soup of Mutton and Radix Aconiti Praeparata) may be eaten once in every ten dog days of the three ten-day periods of the hot season according to the principle of "nourishing yang in spring and summer".
Life cultivation with drugs
The people with yang deficiency may select drugs of strengthening yang to remove cold, warming and tonifying the liver and kidney. The commonly-used ones include Lurong ( Cornu Cervi Pantotrichum), Haigoushen (Peni et Testes Callorhini ) , Gejie (Gecko), Dongchongxiacao ( Cordyceps ), Bajitian ( Radix Morindae Officinalis), Yinyanghuo (Herba Epimedii), Xianmao ( Rhizoma Curculigins ), Roucongrong ( Herba Cistanchis ), Buguzhi ( Fructus Psoraleae ), Hutao ( Semen Juglandis), Duzhong ( Cortex Encommiae ), Xuduan ( Radix Dipsaci), and Tusizi ( Semen Cuscutae ), etc. These people may select the prescriptions of Jinkui Shenqi Pill, Yougui Bolus (Bolus for Reinforcing the Kidney Yang) and Quanlu Pill. In the case of marked yang deficiency of the heart, Guizhi Gancao Decoction (Decoction of Cinnamon Twig and Liquorice) with Rougui ( Cortex Cinnamomi ) may be often taken while in the case of severe yang deftciency of the heart, Renshen (Radix Ginseng) may be added; in the case of marked yang deficiency of the spleen, Lizhong Pill (Pill for Regulating Middle Energizer) or Fuzi Lizhong Pill (Pill of Aconite for Regulating Middle Energizer) may be selected; in the case of asthenia of both the spleen and kidney, Jisheng Shenqi Pill (Life-Preserving Pill for Strengthening the Kidney Qi) may be selected.
