  • Warming/Cooling foods

    Hello everyone,

    I am keen to learn more about the Chinese Medical perspective of the warming and cooling properties of foods. Has anyone any good advice to share? Or maybe good suggestions where I can learn more?

    Any wisdom would be very much appreciated!

    All the best,

    Kevin

    I tend to get a lot of stomach heat, so hot drinks easily make me sweat and acid reflux is not unfamiliar. Rather than morning tea with breakfast I drink cold juice, (I know! Shocking from a TCM perspective!) I just recently started eating cucumber every other day or so and it seems to be a really refreshing and cooling food. Miguel recommended it to me saying that Taisipak Kai recommended it to him. So far I do indeed feel a positive effect and a gradual shift.

      A well known author of books on Tcm, Peter Deadman, recommends two books by Daverick Leggett in a book of his.

      The two titles are :

      "Helping Ourselves : A Guide to Traditional Chinese Food Energetics" and

      "Recipes for Self-Healing"

      I only own the recipe book and can attest to the high quality of its content.

      Best regards from Germany,

      May all beings be happy

      Thank you.

            This book was highly recommended to me ten years ago and it has become my first point of reference when it comes to any question about diet and nutrition:

            HEALING WTH WHOLE FOODS
            ASIAN TRADITIONS AND MODERN NUTRITION
