Each person has their own cold or warm body pattern, a personalized dietary recommendation should be adopted in dealing with the associated ailments. A typical example is the occurrence of skin problems in people with a warm body pattern, an increased consumption of cooling food like bitter melon or green beans (mung beans) will be beneficial to control the problem. Conversely, those who have a cold body pattern are not recommended to consume too much cooling food, else intestinal discomfort and cold limbs will be experienced. Instead of cooling food, people with a cold body pattern should consume foods such as Coix seeds (Chinese pearl barley) and bergamot, which enhance digestive functions and the detoxification function of the liver.
