The Best Feng Shui Foods for Your Heart, Lungs and More
Vegetables and whole grains are often advertised as “heart-healthy foods
.” But did you know that, according to ancient Chinese medicine, red peppers, tomatoes, and even shrimp in moderation may also help improve heart health?
According to Chinese medicine and Feng Shui philosophies, an imbalance of yin or yang in a body may contribute to health problems or disease. Therefore, eating complementary foods to re-create a balance of yin and yang can help cure disease.
The five elements correspond to the five visceral organs. Eating foods in the color that represent the element corresponding to the organ you wish to treat, along with the mutually creative colors as accents in the meal.
Here is a list of the five visceral organs, all crucial to good health, the elements they correspond to, and the colors represented by each:
Heart --> Fire --> Red
Spleen --> Earth --> Yellow
Lungs --> Metal --> White
Liver --> Wood --> Green
Kidney --> Water --> Black
Food Combinations to Eat for Better Health
If you want to improve the health of a particular organ, prepare meals that employ the colors corresponding to the organ you wish to heal. You can use this technique as preventative medicine -- for better heart-health, for instance -- or to assist in curing illnesses affecting that organ. It's important to use these recommendations in conjunction with conventional or alternative medical treatments.
Use common sense. Lobster, as a red food, positively affects the heart, but it's also high in cholesterol and many people eat it dipped in butter -- that's not healthy at all. As a whole, eat healthy, colorful and nutritious foods. When you combine the food of a specific elemental color with foods in the colors of its complementary creative colors, you'll also be creating a well-balanced meal in every sense. For instance, a good meal for heart health might be a dish of fresh ripe tomatoes with a small portion of pasta (yellow/orange/tan) and green peppers.
