EC, I have a cold-natured body, so how do I go about clearing excessive fire?
CheckCheckCin: A lot of Hong Kong people have misconceptions about ‘fire’ in the body and feel like the moment they experience any heat-related symptoms, then they need to immediately reduce the fire in their body. They end up drinking cool herbal teas, eat mung bean slush or Tortoise Jelly thinking the problem would be resolved. But how often does it actually work? Then there are others who have aversion to cold and have asthenic cold symptoms, but still choose to clear heat. In reality, heat can be physical heat or asthenic heat. For those with asthenic heat, further clearing it will actually worsen the condition. It’s important to understand your body to see if you really have excessive heat and do not try to clear it if you don’t have it.
