  • 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.

        ..POLARITY DIET ( similar concepts to Ayurvedic and TCM systems ) : Warming ( Fire Element ) and Cooling ( Water Element ) Foods from the creator of Polarity Therapy ( Dr Randolph Stone )

        This link http://www.digitaldrstone.org/v1b3p105.shtml gives the conceptual framework : Dr Stone is a great synthesizer of eastern and western wisdoms , a great physician & energy healer who emphasise on 1 st hand experience and practicalities as vs theorising

                    Many thanks again David for the suggestion. It became my first post lockdown book purchase yesterday!

                    First impression: its big. Its really big. Over 700 pages big in fact and a trove of wisdom and insight into many facets of diet and nutrition. Much learning in the weeks ahead.

                    All the best,

                    Kevin

                        Wrong diet is in modern time a big problem. So it is good to have good knowledge about the five element concept of food to keep you strong and healthy.
                        I personally keep it simple for my own:
                        seasonal and regional then you always right what to choose.

                        Of course if you have some health problem then you should have a deeper understanding of Five Element Kitchen to help yourself.

                        Hua Tou one the greatest Chinese Healer said:

                        If you get sick first change your diet.
                        If it didn´t work change for herbs or acupuncture.
                        May all beings be happy

                          Reading this thread has made me think I should have taken notice of this a long time ago. Certainly alot of cleansing i have experienced is related to my stomach.

                            Right Siheng ...over 50% of my patients have diet related illness , after not getting well despite treatment with strong western medicines , their treating doctors send them to me for scans and Xrays in the hope of finding the cause of the persisting mysterious illness ...many of them get well after i advise them to change their diet ...even though i'm a radiologist , i have to step in and give advise on diet , while scanning my patients !

                            The fact is : western trained doctors did not receive enough training on Diet & Exercise & Psychology-Stress management in medical school , so they dont know enough to teach their patients.
                            The solution is : to improve the medical school teaching syllabus on Diet & Nutrition ( to include latest medical science and also knowledge from TCM , Ayurvedic medicine etc ) . Also health ministry of each country should on daily basis use traditional mass media & modern ICT-social media to the maximum to promote public education on basic balanced-healthy diet .

                            The 2 main challenges for the above solutions are : the pride of doctors & medical organsiations-universities ( must have humility to admit there is room for improvement ) and the powerful lobby groups ( profit 1 st , health 2 nd ) .
