Can ice cream be consumed when experiencing a heaty cough?
Some people believe that individuals can relieve a hot cough accompanied by a sore throat, by eating cold ice cream. However, this is a misconception! Consuming cold and raw foods can burden the spleen and stomach, as well as irritate the respiratory tract, making it more sensitive.
From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, regardless of the type of cough, one should avoid eating ice cream. A hot cough, also known as a wind-heat cough, is characterized by a dry and painful throat, white or yellow-colored phlegm/nasal discharge, and thirst. It is often caused by exposure to wind heat or hot weather.
To relieve a hot cough, it is recommended to flush the heat from the body and consume moderate amounts of foods with cooling properties to clear heat, resolve phlegm, and stop coughing. Examples of such foods include monk fruit, figs, white radish, pears, and chrysanthemum.
