Diet & Prevention

Light, daily exercises like yoga or walking help to keep the body and immune system strong. Practice deep breathing using your nose not your mouth. Eat balanced meals with both yin and yang foods. Consume a little bit more protein from plants or animals (beets, beans, avocado, or meats like chicken, pork, fish, turkey and bone broth). It is best to avoid eating raw or uncooked foods like salad and sushi; spicy or heavily seasoned foods like salsa or barbeque; and greasy foods like cheese or french fries. No smoking, alcohol, coffee, and cold beverages.
