Diet & Prevention

Eat light balanced and digestible meals and drink plenty of water. It is best to avoid eating uncooked (raw), greasy, spicy foods, chocolate, mango, pineapple, cherry, coconut meat, eggs, and vitamin, fish without scales and fins (shellfish), and /or yang/heat-inducing food. No smoking or drinking alcohol and coffee. Avoid oily and fatty foods which can create Dampness. Spicy food perpetuates Heat. Alcohol worsens both Heat and Dampness.
