FOODS TO AVOID WHEN YOU’RE ILL

August 17, 2016

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is believed that our body stays healthy when our Yin and Yang are balanced. However, if we eat too much of a certain type of food, it may disrupt this balance and lead to illness. When this happens, there are further foods that you must avoid in order to stop the situation from worsening. For example, if you have skin allergies, you must avoid seafood; if you are bloated, you should not eat salty food. Here is a prepared handy crib sheet of the illnesses and accompanying foods to avoid so you can get better, whatever your ailment may be.

Avoid: seafood, mango, ice, taro, longan and lychee.

4. Insomnia
