When I was getting acupuncture treatments to alleviate my headaches and general anxiety, my acupuncturist encouraged me to eat only hot foods. I had to keep a food journal where I recorded everything that I ate and handed it over to her each week. Whenever I ate something cold, she’d look at it and say, “Well, you did well except for the cold foods.”
If you’re someone like me who’s on the go and doesn’t always have time to cook, you know that eating hot foods all of the time is really difficult. But hot foods lead to better digestion which leads to better health. This simple rule is explained really well in this article I found in Ode Magazine.
