【食材不濕】坊間說食物「濕熱」或「濕」其實是對吃了該食物後身體反映出來的現象的描述而已。

⭐理論上是沒有濕的食材
⭐袪濕前先明白甚麼是濕

「濕熱」食材會致濕?
濕滯少女:「最近芒果當造,但很多人說芒果『濕熱』的水果,其實是甚麼意思呀?」

CheckCheckCin:經常聽到有人說某種食物很「濕」或者「濕熱」,讓我們先了解一下甚麼是「濕」吧!

其實「濕」和「熱」在中醫學中是致病原因,比如「天氣潮濕」、「腸胃濕熱」等,坊間有種約定俗成的說法,但凡吃了某些食物後身體出現皮膚痕癢、全身困倦、胃腸脹悶、大便稀爛黏廁等水液代謝障礙的症狀,這些皆為「濕」或「濕熱」症狀,因此會把這類型食物冠以「濕」和「濕熱」之名。所以坊間說這些食物「濕熱」或「濕」,只是描述個別體質人士吃了這類食物後身體反映出來的現象而已,而非食物屬性為「濕」。

芒果性熱,有止嘔、止暈、解渴、利尿的功效,對於暈車或暈船浪引起的眩暈有紓緩作用,也適合體質虛弱人士,但濕熱、陰虛體質者要少食,以免加重偏熱症狀。惟芒果是動風發物,因此過敏體質者如有濕疹、皮膚敏感等不宜食用,容易引起過敏反應,或令症狀加劇,正因芒果的動風特質及偏熱屬性,才使其有「濕熱」的說法,其實正是以上提到吃後身體的反映。

Understanding damp-heat ingredients
“Mango is in season now. But some say mango is damp-heat fruit? What does that mean?”

CheckCheckCin: You always hear that some ingredients are damp or damp-heat natured. Let’s figure out what “dampness” is first.

“Dampness” and “ heat” only refers to the cause of symptoms in Chinese medicine, for example, common sayings such as “the weather is humid”, “dampness and heat in the digestive system” all refer to that. If you have difficulty circulating fluids leading to symptoms such as itchy skin, fatigue, abdominal pain, loose and sticky stool that stuck to the toilet after eating certain ingredients, you may have “dampness” or “damp-heat”. That is why people say that these kinds of ingredients are “damp heat” or “damp” natured. These sayings refer to the body reflection of those with specific body conditions after eating certain ingredients, but do not mean the nature of ingredients are “damp”.

Mango is hot in nature. It can relieve vomiting and dizziness, relieve thirst and promote diuresis. Dizziness caused by motion could be relieved by eating mango. It is suitable for those with weak body conditions. However, those with damp-heat and yin deficiency body condition should eat less to prevent worsening heat-related symptoms. Mango is an ingredient that activates wind, so it is not suitable for those with sensitive body types such as eczema and skin allergy. Otherwise, it may lead to allergic reactions or make symptoms worse. Mango’s wind activating characteristic and heat-related nature is why people refer to it as “damp-heat”, which is actually the reflection of the body mentioned above after eating it.
