Traditional Chinese medicine believes that vitality is the most fundamental and important qi of the human body, and is the source of human life, and that sufficient vitality is healthy, that if vitality is damaged, it is sick, and that when vitality is exhausted, it dies. That is to say, if the vitality is sufficient, the immunity is strong, so as to defeat the disease; If the vitality is insufficient or weak, it cannot produce enough antibodies or immunity to defeat the disease, resulting in death.

Characteristics of vitality: Vitality is like oil, non-renewable, easy to consume, but difficult to replenish.

The fingernails can directly reflect the internal conditions of the body, and the adequacy of vitality can be detected from the half-moon marks of the fingernails. Stretching out your hands, you can see a white half-moon shape on the lower part of your nails, and this white crescent is called a half-moon mark, called the “vitality ring”, which represents the essence of the human body. If the vitality is sufficient, more than eight half-moon marks are presented on the fingernails of the hands, and each half-moon mark should account for 1/5 of the nails, milky white, the whiter the better; Fewer half-moon marks indicate weak vitality and easy cold hands and feet.

The number of half-moon marks is eight is the best, too much is easy to suffer from “three highs”, overnutrition; Less is cold and lack of vitality. The reduction of half-moon marks begins with the little finger and transitions sequentially to the thumb. If it is congenital no, it is not used as the basis for diagnosis, on the contrary, congenital has acquired none, indicating vitality consumption. The performance of the vitality of the human body should be a peaceful state, less is insufficient, too much.
