Most of them are professionals working in finance, banking, law and other field. Most of their physical problems are caused by excessive stress. "Too much stress will cause the body to produce toxins. Many clinical signs of patients shows symptoms of liver qi stagnation. They need to soothe the nerves, soothe the liver and detoxify to relieve stress."
Stress causes physical and mental discomfort. In addition to exercise, Chinese medicine is a good recipe for decompression. Cheung Yung pointed out that Chinese medicinal materials such as Bupleurum and Rhizoma Cyperi can help rejuvenate liver, relieve depression and detoxify.

Replenish Lung Function to Fight the Long-Term Anti-Pandemic Battle
Based on his many years of clinical experience, Cheung Yung has noticed that many Hong Kong people have lung deficiency problems. To fight against the COVID-19 pandemic today, it is necessary to strengthen the lung function. "The weather in Hong Kong is humid. When indoor there is always air-conditioning. Combined that many people like to drink cold drinks, people are generally more susceptible to cold and have weaker lungs." People with lung deficiency are often accompanied by skin allergies, nasal allergies, fatigue, cold hands and feet, yellow or pale complexion, and more susceptible to colds and coughs.
Cheung Yung suggested using lily, bulbus fritillariae cirrhosae, cordyceps essence, astragalus, etc. to invigorate the lungs. From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, the lungs dominate the skin and when the lungs are weak, the spleen and stomach are also prone to deterioration. For example, some patients have too many bowel movements per day (some up to five to six times), they should need to invigorate their spleen. It is recommended to improve the symptoms of spleen deficiency with yam, lotus seeds and gorgon euryale seed.

In recent years, many people have chosen to take Chinese medicine pill supplements instead of traditional Chinese medicinal decoctions. Cheung Yung believes that the two are suitable for different situations and can be selected according to needs. "Pills are convenient. One or two pills per day can already regulate the body. They are mostly used for mild symptoms, conditioning and prevention. You should refer to the drug instructions before taking them to understand whether you are suitable for consumption. If you have any questions, You can consult a Chinese medicine physician first.” As for decocting medicine, it is more suitable for patients. “When seeking medical treatment, the physician needs to differentiate and treat the symptoms, and then prescribe independent prescriptions. In this case, decoction is more suitable.” Chinese medicine pill supplements are made from concentrated Chinese medicinal materials, and the effect is similar to that of decoction, except that the latter is usually bitter, and those who are afraid of bitterness may have to be take with snacks.
