Medication is not as good as diet therapy. The poison of medicine is its partiality, and it can only be used for disaster relief. Food also has its partiality, but the partiality is small. If you master it, pay more attention to the diet to maintain health!
People's physique is different from the partial victory of yin and yang. The so-called victory of yang refers to the heat constitution or fever, and the victory of yin refers to the cold constitution or cold disease. According to its nature, food can also be divided into cold and hot. Generally cold foods are suitable for those with positive yang partiality, and warm foods are suitable for those with positive yang partiality. Since food has two different natures, cold and hot, it is necessary to understand the nature of various foods in order to understand the food taboos.
