Most carefree girls are yin deficient
Some girls you know are quite boyish; they are active and just can’t seem to sit still; they don’t sleep until it is late; even their diets are not disciplined with preference in spicy foods and cold drinks. They can eat a lot and not gain much meat, have reddish complexion, and never seem to feel cold even under a cold a/c. This gives the impression that they are very heathy. But in reality, these girls with excessive yang qi have a yin deficient body constitution. With the increase in asthenic heat, they would often feel hot, and even experience constipation and dry mouth. They should eat more foods to nourish yin and relieve dryness, otherwise, their bodies will become excessively dry leading to irritability and bad temper!
Pear- cold in nature, can clear heat, promote fluid production, and relieve dryness. Alleviates symptoms such as excessive thirst, constipation and dry throat.
Snow fungus- also known as white fungus. Mild in nature, and can nourish yin, moisten the lungs, strengthen the heart and replenish the brain. Alleviates qi deficiency and dry skin and throat.
