Chinese medicine advises that uncooked food and cold food will deplete Yang energy. Ice-cream, ice-cold soda, chilled beer, fridge-fresh watermelon are all cold foods. Eating cold food in winter will also burden the digestive organs and the kidneys. Organs in your body try to help you and have to work harder to digest these foods and to get rid of the coldness they bring. Every organ has a limit! They get sick in order to protect your body from these cold food. Chinese medicine calls this “weak Yang in digestion and kidneys”. Each one of us, whether healthy or weak, have to be careful in our diet. Using some body warming methods will slowly improve our cold body and return Yang chi to our overworked organs.
