Beat the heat by eating healthy foods this summer

Beat the heat by eating healthy foods this summerThe human body perspires because of the sweltering heat during the summer. This can result to loss of fluids and nutrients in the body. Because of this people tend to become tired and thirsty.

This is because their Qi (vital Energy) is lost along with their Yin (vital essence). Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners believe that nourishing their bodies in the summer can bring back the Qi and Yin back in their bodies.

Taking tonic in the summer can help invigorate the spleen and dispel heat from the body. Eating light foods such as winter melon is a perfect choice along with lean pork, fresh fruit and mung beans. Eating congee is also nice since its nutritious and aids digestion. Different types of congee can aid in healing the body from losing vital nutrients, congee such as mung bean congee can eliminate heat and toxins. Congee made with celery can clear heat and relaxes the bowels, lotus root congee can help regulate vital energy and aids with the functions of the spleen and stomach.

Fruit juices made with fresh fruits such as apples, oranges, lemon, pineapple and watermelon can also help in eliminating heat and aids in the production of saliva that replenishes the Qi and nourishes the Yin. Research also showed that eating bitter tasting food can also help lift spirits and relive pressure.
