Chinese Folk Customs During The Puerperal Period By Lok Yae

Generally speaking, Chinese people preserve many deep-rooted folk customs during the first month after childbirth. "No hair-washing." "Consume as much tonic food as you can." These beliefs have been embedded in our heart. It seems a very important period to a woman during and after pregnancy. A mom-to-be or new mom always feels nervous due to those folk traditions. - Don't wash hair and body Actually, only if the genitals hurt is healed and a new mom has fully recovered from tiredness, it is ok to take a shower. But the shower time can't be too long, only for about 5-10 minutes each time (20 room temperature and 34-36 water temperature). After washing, make sure to wipe off water and put on clothes quickly so as to avoid getting cold. However, this just depends on a new mom's health status and the bath conditions. Further to this, keep in mind to wait until hair dries up before sleep. If not, a new mom may suffer headache or neck pain. - Don't brush teeth and comb hair Experts have pointed out that a new mom should brush teeth and comb hair as before. This is because most foods eating after pregnancy are soft, which keep the oral cavity from clear function during the mastication process. Soft foods may also cause the formation of dental plague. Therefore, a new mom can't ignore teeth-brushing. As everyone knows, combing hair is a good habit and it can help stimulate blood circulation and maintain the health of hair roots. So it is absolutely not a good idea to change this habit. - Avoid wind In the past, parturient women might be easily affected by bacteria and suffer fever due to nutrient deficiency and weak resistance. But it is not still the case now. Today, a nutritious diet will increase a new mom's ability to resist infection. In addition, rooms must be adequately ventilated to keep the air clean and fresh. In hot summer, you can get a fan blow in the opposite direction (not towards a new mom) to create a "air short circuit" because airtight may lead to heat stroke. Try to maintain room temperature at 26-28 and humidity 55%~65%. - Don't have sex

Parturient women are told not to have sex. This is absolutely true, according to the experts. That's because it takes at least 8 weeks to recover the productive organs after delivery. Early sex may easily cause inflammation, uterine hemorrhage and perineum avulsion. Therefore, a new mom couldn't have sex until lochia is completely discharged in more than 2 month. While the examination after delivery is normal, she could have sex with contraceptive measures. - Can't eat fruits and vegetables or cold foods Modern medicine holds that a new mom could eat fruits and vegetables or cold food after delivery. There is no doubt that vitamins play an important role in body recovery and milk secretion. Of which, Vitamin C has positive effects on the hematischesis and hurt healing. Fruits and vegetables are accepted rich in vitamins and fibers. These elements are proven beneficial for stomach and bowel movements. However, a new mom should be cautious and choose to eat fresh foods. In fact, taboos after pregnancy depend on many factors related to time and space environment, including life environment, climate and local customs. In modern life, it is not a good idea to follow all the taboos because of household electrification and different water sources. As a new mom, you will be told what you can and can't do during the puerperal period. But who's right, and who's wrong? What we can do is to develop and promote scientific ideas for body-recuperation after delivery. Lok Yae is a father and a long time practitioner of the art of Feng Shui.

The Push to Learn Chinese in Our Schools By David Snape

Recently, a trend has developed in high schools and communities around the United States. Many people want to or are now learning the Chinese language. This could be a good turn of events, but it can also be problematic. This is particularly so for those who know nothing about Chinese culture, history and the state of affairs in China today. In mainland China they no longer use the traditional Chinese characters that go hand in hand with Chinese history. For some reason, the Chinese Communist Party decided to alter the Chinese language and thereby change the vehicle for written communication. Traditional Chinese characters evolved naturally over a period of time from pictographs or small drawings. By contrast the simplified Chinese created by the Chinese Communist Party has watered many of the traditional characters down to the point that they no longer are rooted in more ancient traditions. Here is an example. The traditional Chinese character for the word 'love' contains a picture of a heart in it. This makes sense because love is closely associated to the heart. Not so in simplified Chinese. There is no heart in the word 'love' in simplified Chinese. One may ponder how you can love without a heart. Just as this example shows, in many ways the Chinese Communist Party has removed the heart of the entire language, distorting and altering it into a water downed version of its former self. In Taiwan, however, they still use traditional characters. So if your community or children's school is planning to teach Chinese, you may wish to ensure that you are getting the traditional variety. It more fully encompasses the rich history of China and the Chinese people. By contrast, those who teach our children simplified Chinese are from mainland China and unfortunately, they will also be passing on the values and ideas of the Chinese Communist Party. Whether they do so on purpose or automatically as a result of growing up in that environment, the end result is the same. Only you can decide if you want the influence of the Chinese Communist Party imparted to your children. Be sure to insist that our children are taught traditional Chinese and not the simplified version. This way the richness of traditional Chinese culture can be more fully enjoyed and appreciated. There will be a more solid foundation to understand the more ancient Chinese traditions. Dave writes for All Things Pondered: Cars & Homes Bargains That Convert. Period. Page 3
