ⅠKnow the function of food

For example, rice has the nature of being moisture, soft, cool and light. It can treat He Yi, Sheila, Badakan disease, and has the function of impotence, being antidiarrheal and antiemetic. Wheat has a heavy and cool nature and it can nurture the body, remove He Yi and Sheila. It is with a cool, light nature and can heal trauma and produce He Yi. Sheep meat has a moist, warm nature. Its function is to help digestion, increase physical strength, vitality, cure He Yi disease and Badakan disease, and improve appetite. Butter is sweet, warm and heavy with nourishing the body, suppressing He Yi, appetizers, puzzle, longevity and other effects. Rice porridge can treat thirst, fAint and other disasters, help digestion, balance vitality, increase body temperature, prevent and treat arteriosclerosis. Thick porridge can produce hotness, eliminate hunger, sleepiness and be laxative. Thick porridge can prevent diarrhea, stomach consumption, eliminate thirst. Therefore, rice gruel is the tonic to body when one is frail or after diarrhea. Milk is sweet and after digestion its taste is still sweet. Its nature is moisture and heavy. Its function is to increase strength and to renew face. It can cure He Yi and Sheila and other diseases, but it also can cause cool and heavy Badakan. Cattle milk can treat lung perforation and tuberculosis effectively. It also can cure the long-time plague and frequent urination. It can make mind sharp. Sour horse milk-- Sour milk is a kind of fitness drink made with fermented milk. It tastes acid and is cool with enriching blood, clearing heat, stopping thirst, making physical fitness, Moisturizing the lung, helping digestion, treating Sa disease and other effects. The main treatments are heart tingling, chronic lung disease, tuberculosis, gastrointestinal diseases, Sa disease and other chronic diseases. According to the study, sour horse milk has a variety of beneficial ingredients in the body, such as sugar, protein, fat, vitamins and so on. Especially, vitamin C content is greater. There are also amino acids, lactic acid, enzymes, minerals, and aromatic substances and trace elements. Experimental and clinical studies have demonstrated the role of sour horse milk in the prevention and treatment of hypertension, coronary heart disease, paralysis, tuberculosis, chronic gastritis, duodenal ulcer, gastric nerve function, colitis, intestinal tuberculosis, and diabetes mellitus obviously.

Drinking the proper amount the body can produce heat, but also be courageous and cause sleep. It can treat Badakan, He Yi and other diseases. On the contrary, excessive drinking will make people feel a change, and be bohemian. Drunk makes one like a madman, be nonsense and illegal. After being drunk, one is unconscious, dementia, and even produces alcohol poison. The performance of food is discussed in detail in "The four medical code".
Ⅱ Avoid eating unsuitable food
"Four medical books • Discuss • Food taboo" says that toxic diet should be avoided. It will immediately make people die. The color and taste of toxic foods are different from non-toxic foods. If the poisonous food is given to the dog to eat, it will have abdominal fever and vomiting. When the meat is toxic, the color is red. But the food does not stick iron when burned with iron. This meat also shows an inflated state. If the wine is poured on this meat, the steam will smash the eyes.
Some food performance is contradictory. If one eats at the same time, one will be poisoned. Its harm is as bad as poison. For example, if no fermented cheese and new wine are taken at the same time, it will cause poison. Fish and milk are not suitable for each other. After eating, one will be poisoned. Similarly, milk and walnuts, almonds and others are incompatible with each other. Eggs and fish are not suited. Peas and brown sugar, cheese are not suited to the three. While eating together, one will be poisoned, and so on. Because the nature of food does not meet each other, it will cause contradictions. If one doesn’t do according to habits, irregular eating or drinking or overeating will cause food disasters. Therefore, the unbeneficial habit of eating should be given up.
Ⅲ Diet should be appropriate.
People always have to diet according to the nature of light, heavy, moderate diet. Light food is to be eaten to fullness. Heavy food can only eat half full and make a smooth digestion. This is the guarantee of heat generated by the body. If not eaten properly, the less amount cannot increase physical strength, the face will decline, accompanied by the birth of He Yi disease. If the appetite is over, indigestion and too much stomach fluid can block the flow of Tiaohuo He Yi, so the stomach fire decays, all the disease will be followed. Therefore, the "Four medical books • Discuss" says that according to the light and heavy nature of the food, the strength of the stomach fire, two-fourths of the stomach volume should be left to the food, a quarter is left to the drink, a quarter is left to He Yi, Sheila and Badakan. After eating food, drinking water can erase the digestion and increase physical strength.
