寒涼食物可清熱
「Cinci,我最近喉嚨痛又生飛滋,便便還有點乾硬。」
「你體質偏熱,要適量進食寒涼食物清熱氣。」
「吓?!我寒底不可以食寒涼食物㗎!」
以上情節不時在診所內發生,亦是不少人對體質的誤解,以為體質只分寒與熱,其實寒熱只反映身體陰陽盛衰的狀況,而且身體偏熱或偏寒並不是天生的底子,隨著天氣、飲食和生活的影響,偏熱的人有時會變成偏寒,偏寒的人也會變成偏熱。
而熱可以分為實熱和虛熱,實熱多因為感染風熱、暑邪、陽邪、過量服食辛辣燥熱食物所致,所以在冬天大家多吃火鍋、燒烤、羊腩煲等偏熱食物,身體容易出現偏熱症狀,例如眼乾目赤、經常口乾、嘴唇偏乾、喉嚨痛、暗瘡、口瘡、尿少顏色黃、大便偏乾硬、容易便秘等,就有清熱的需要,屬性寒涼的食物才有清熱功效,所以不用怕「太寒涼」,只要身體回復平衡狀態,就可停止食用。
而虛熱會出現發燒、睡覺時出汗、手心足心發熱等情況,多因為久病、晚睡和情志不舒引起,需要的是滋陰而非清熱。如果自己不懂分辨,建議諮詢註冊中醫師意見對症下藥。

Cool and cold nature food can clear heat
“Cinci, I have had a sore throat, canker sore and dry stool recently.”
“Your have heat-related body condition so you should eat cool and cold-natured food to clear heat.”
“What?! I can’t eat cool and cold-natured food because I have a cold-related body condition.”
I have these conversations in my clinic from time to time and it is a common misconception of body conditions. Some people believe the body is either hot or cold, but the cold and heat actually reflect the yin and yang situation of body. Moreover, heat or cold-related body is not nature basis of body. With the influence of weather, diet, and daily life, people who have heat-related body condition sometimes become cold, and vice versa.
The heat can be divided into excessive heat and asthenic heat. Most of the excessive heat is caused by heat wind flu, summer heat, yang pathogen and excessive consumption of hot and spicy food. Many people eat hot natured foods such as hot pot, barbecue, lamb brisket pot during winter. The body is prone to heat-related symptoms, such as dry eyes, red eyes, frequent dry mouth, dry lips, sore throat, pimple, canker sore, yellowish urine and low volume, dry stool, prone to constipation and so on. You should consume cool and cold-natured foods to clear heat. You do not need to worry that it means it might be ‘too cold’ in nature. Once your body returns to a balanced state, you can stop.
Asthenic heat can lead to fever, sweating during sleep, and hot palms in the hands and feet, which are often caused by chronic illness, sleeping late, and bad mood. This is not a time to clear heat, but you should nourish yin to reduce heat. If you do not understand the difference, it is recommended to consult a registered Chinese medicine practitioner for advice.
