The balance of tastes: 4+1 for eternity

Chinese medicine is an ancient yet very popular form of medicine, which bases treatment on the fact that illness is caused by the lack of harmony between the body and the spirit. According to its principles, a balance between the two can only be obtained through a balanced alimentation, which includes the 4 tastes (bitter, sour, salt, sweet) and spicy foods. Now I don’t know whether Chinese medicine is effective or not, but the principles it tends to apply are definetly a good example to follow.

Bitter

Most bitter foods or drinks cause elimination of liquids, which helps prevent liquid accumulations. Salad, for example calms the inside of your body and regulates the body temperature. It’s also very good against stress, insomnia and neurosis. But not everything that’s bitter is good; if you drink too much coffee, for example, you could suffer from heart conditions and your skin could become very unhealthy and inestetic.

Sour

Sour foods have a positive influence on the physical energy and they also have a soothing action, working against anger, agitation and anxiety. This kind of foods includes grain, some fruits, some types of cheese, fruit tea and even beer. Great for finding your balance.

Salt

Usually, we consume way more salt than we need. The results is that the organs and blood vessels lose a lot of liquid which instead accumulates in the tissue. In order to prevent this, one should eat less salt, because it also damages the heart. Instead of using it, try using some green veggies instead.

Spicy

Modern times are exhausting for almost everybody. Whenever you feel that you’re just drained of energy, or that you’re cold inside or outside, it’s very good to eat some spicy foods. But not too many though, that wouldn’t be good at all. Recommended spices are white and black pepper, some pimento, ginger, onion or garlic.

Sweet

Out of sweet fods, organs extract the energy they need to function without any problems; recent studies have pointed out these advantages. But don’t think that eating cake or chocolate all day is something good! By the process of obtaining it, sugar loses its capacity to produce vital energy. But if you were to eat fruits, nuts, veggies, than the situation would be very different. Fructose helps organism fight diseases and escape from stress.

So what should one eat, in order to have a balanced diet?

If your menu has everyone of these things, you’ll definetly be healthier, without doing anything. If it doesn’t have any of these, then your organism will not be able to function properly. Keep in mind that everything you do reflects upon you.
