Chinese Medicine is a lifestyle that includes diet, exercise, breathing, acupuncture and herbs. This lifestyle helps one to live a long, happy life. Today I want to share some secrets about food that can help you stay cool this summer! There are actually cooling foods for qi, your balanced energy.
According to Chinese Medicine, certain foods will cool down your body. Of course its good to eat these foods during the summer to balance your body with the season. Be careful some foods will warm up your body! Use the cooling foods below to beat the heat.
Cooling Foods for Qi:
Ginger (most spices are warm)
Lamb (most meat is warm)
If its very red or has a yellow coating, you have too much heat in your body.
If you’re always thirsty, you have too much heat in your body
If your hot and sweaty at night, you have too much heat in your body.
