“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
Hippocrates of Kos
When we think about Diet usually the first thing coming into our mind is food groups and calories, vitamins, amino acids, among others.
Chinese Medicine considers not merely the components of the food itself but the effect they have on our body as a whole. Each food promotes a specific effect, whether cooling it down or warming it up. Flavors are also something to consider, for example the sweet flavor has the property of nourishing, moistening. Certain food combinations allow us to reach a specific result, not only for treating disease but to maintain our body balanced.
