The weather began to get cold. As the temperature dropped, many people felt cold, and their hands and feet were especially cold.

“Plain question, Yangming pulse thirtieth”, “ four branches, all Yang’s foundation.” Yang Sheng is four solid, but it can be high.

Yang Sheng is limbs solid, that is, the hands and feet are warm and powerful. If it is Yang deficiency, it will be "fear cold and limbs are not warm".

The ability of blood vessel contraction and blood reflux will be weakened, and the blood circulation of hand and foot, especially the fingertip, is not smooth. That is what people often say that poor peripheral circulation.
