From the perspective of Chinese medicine, it is believed that the reason why food can prevent and treat diseases is due to its own unique taste, which is the "eating nature" of food. If you don’t understand food habits, then for some people or patients with special constitutions, food habits will induce old diseases, aggravate existing diseases, and weaken the power of medicine. This is the "proliferation" of food, which is what the folks call "fat".
The so-called "hair" can be understood as "inducing, triggering, and assisting hair."
People with chronic diseases originally have "fuxie" in their body. If they eat "fat", they may induce the original chronic disease and cause the disease to recur. And if there is no "fuxie" in the body and the body is healthy, it is harmless to eat some "hair stuff" according to one's physique.
"Fawu" is a concept peculiar to Chinese medicine. Foods that easily induce some old diseases or aggravate existing diseases are collectively called "fawu".
"Fa" has the effect of agitating the body's qi and blood, which can easily lead to the body's qi and blood disorders, worsening the disease or recurring attacks. It generally refers to spicy, hot, raw and cold, fat and sweet foods, which are specifically divided into the following categories:
1. Things that generate heat
Refers to foods that cause the human body to produce fiery phenomena, such as onions, ginger, leeks, peppers, lamb, dog meat and other warm, spicy foods that are easy to heat up.
This kind of hair is not suitable for people with hot physique, Yin deficiency and fire; it is also not suitable for tuberculosis patients and people with wound inflammation; it is not suitable for people with fever, thirst, and constipation. People who are in love with fire are best to eat less, such as mouth ulcers or swollen gums.
But for people with cold physique (that is, yang deficiency physique), eating these feverish foods often has the effect of expelling cold and replenishing yang, and helps to drive away the cold in the body.
Second, the thing that blows the wind
Such as seafood, fish, shrimp, crab, eggs, toon bud goose, and other foods that are easy to cause wind, disease spread, and aggravate skin diseases (such as urticaria, eczema, erysipelas, boils, boils, etc.).
People with urticaria, eczema, stroke and other diseases, or those with allergic diseases should not eat it. In addition, seafood is a hairy substance for gout patients, which can easily induce diseases.
However, shrimps and other seafood are good nutrients for people who are not allergic because they are rich in high-quality protein.
3. Things that are hot and humid
Refers to foods that affect the movement and transformation of the spleen and help moisturize heat, such as caramel, glutinous rice, and pork. For people with weak spleen and stomach, phlegm and damp constitution, damp-heat hair is not suitable for eating more. People with damp heat, jaundice, dysentery and other diseases should not eat.
Traditional Chinese medicine teaches that "sweet can make you feel full", "the cream is thick, and the feet produce big diced". Sweet foods can affect the function of the spleen and stomach, and greasy foods can cause dampness and heat, which can cause boils.
People with phlegm and damp constitution are generally fatter, prone to drowsiness, and the tongue coating is white and greasy. Because this kind of damp heat and the like are more difficult to digest, eating too much can easily cause dampness, causing spleen and stomach discomfort and other symptoms.
However, damp and hot hair is not absolutely bad. For example, glutinous rice has a tonic effect on the weak people with insufficient breath. People who have symptoms of yin deficiency such as dry mouth, cough, dry skin, etc., can also take some appropriately.
Four, cold accumulation
It means that it has the characteristics of cold and cold, which is easy to damage the body's yang, causing the spleen, stomach, heart and lungs, liver and kidneys and other organs to worsen yin and cold, leading to diarrhea, cold pain, cough, chest pain and other diseases, such as watermelon, persimmon, sorbet, winter melon, Green beans, lettuce, persimmon and other foods.
Generally, people with deficiency of the spleen and stomach and cold syndrome should not eat more. However, for people with hot physique, cold accumulation is a better way to reduce fire, especially in summer, but it is not advisable to eat more, so as to avoid excessive damage to the Yang.
Five, dry things

Sixth, things that start blood
Foods that can hurt the collaterals and move blood, such as pepper, chili, longan, lamb, dog meat, white wine, etc.
Many of these foods have a warm nature and are easy to force blood to go out, such as hemoptysis, vomiting blood, hemoptysis caused by blood heat, or hemorrhoids, menorrhagia, hematuria and so on.
Generally, it is not suitable for patients with various bleeding diseases, such as uterine bleeding and menorrhagia.
Although eating hawthorn is an appetizer, raw hawthorn is appetizing and promoting blood circulation, which can induce miscarriage. Therefore, hawthorn is a blood-moving thing during pregnancy.
However, these foods have a very good effect of clearing the meridians, activating blood circulation and removing blood stasis, and can be used to prevent blood stasis headache, frozen shoulder and some types of rheumatic diseases.
7. Things that are stagnant

Especially for those with weak spleen and stomach, it is easy to cause symptoms such as indigestion, bloating, and loss of appetite.
However, many of these foods have the effects of invigorating the kidney and relieving essence, replenishing the spleen and stopping ejaculation. For people with spleen-deficiency diarrhea or kidney-deficiency premature ejaculation, it has a certain therapeutic effect.
Eight, photosensitive food
Photosensitive foods refer to foods that are prone to cause solar dermatitis. Such as lettuce, fennel, amaranth, shepherd's purse, coriander, etc.
If these foods are not consumed in large quantities, there will be no adverse reactions, but people with allergies should eat less.
