• Water regulation problems mainly tend to manifest as edema. Edema is swelling due to excess water accumulation in the body. Edema may be localized or general.

    Dampness accumulates in the body over time as a result of a failure to "burn off" or transform moisture in the body. Dampness may be caused by pathogens lodged in the body which have not been properly expelled.


        Foods to Avoid:

    Foods to Avoid mainly include the same foods that cause dampness such as: Raw foods, cold foods, sweet foods, rich foods, over-consumption of fluids. Some foods that are particularly dampening include: Dairy products, pork, rich meat, roasted penuts, saturated fats, concentrated orange juice and tomato juice, beer, yeast, bread, wheat, bananas, sugar, and sweeteners.
