Foods to Eat in Spring

The following is an alphabetical list of foods that are good to eat in the Spring. In Chinese medicine, these are foods that are said to have an upward movement. Our bodies have different needs as seasons change from one to the next. With this in mind, we should consider the different “movements” of the foods we eat in each season. In the Spring, we need foods that reawaken the yang energy as this energy has been in hibernation throughout the Winter. You may notice that these foods tend to have one of two flavors – pungent or sweet. Patients suffering from any symptoms such as fatigue, hemorrhoids, diarrhea, and rectal or uterine prolapse, are commonly advised to eat more foods with an upward movement. If the patient suffers from a chronic condition, he/she may be prescribed an herbal decoction, which will have a stronger upward action.
