Six taboos in Chinese medicine taking we should keep in mind

 When you take the Chinese medicine, some foods are forbidden because if you take it, especially when you take some traditional Chinese medicine, then the efficacy would be affected. So the following are some foods that must be avoided.

 
Radish 
When you take the Chinese medicine, the raw radish (except the medicine with the function of regulating qi and resolving phlegm) is a taboo. Because when you take this kind of medicine, especially the nourishing medicine such as ginseng, astragalus and so on, the radish can weaken the tonic role of ginseng, lower the efficiency of drugs and can not reach the therapeutic purposes.
 
Avoid cold food
Cold food usually holds the cold nature, and it is difficult to digest. Besides, the cold foods are also easy to stimulate the gastrointestinal tract, and affect the gastrointestinal drugs’ absorption. So which kind of foods are the taboos to take? In fact, in the treatment of symptoms caused by cold factors, we should choose the medicine with warming and activating meridian, or spleen warm medicine, the cold food should be forbidden. 
 
Avoid tea 
Do not drink tea when taking the medicine in general, because tea contains tannic acid. When you take the medicine while drinking tea, the active ingredient that can be absorbed by our body will be interfered. In particular, colla corii asini and white fungus may be separate with tea. As usual, if there is someone who has the habit of drinking tea, then you'd better avoid the green tea. And the best medication time is 2 to 3 hours later.
 
Avoid spicy food
Hot and spicy food belongs to the warm nature, and it is easy to consume live-fire. So when you take the heat-clearing and detoxifying or nourishing Yin medicines, or you are during the heat treatment, the spicy food is forbidden. Then what's the taboo of traditional Chinese medicine taking when you get these symptoms? The hot and spicy food such as onion, garlic, pepper, and mutton and dog meat can offset the effect of traditional Chinese medicine. What’s worse, some will make the inflammation even worse, or lead to the bleeding (hemorrhage). 
 
Avoid greasy food
Greasy food used to sticky, help to produce the wet phlegm and hold back the Qi, it is usually hard to be digested and absorbed. In addition, the greasy food mixed with drugs can impede the absorption of drug and active ingredients. So the patients with heavier phlegm, weak spleen and stomach, indigestion, hypertension, coronary heart disease, hyperlipidemia, obesity, high blood viscosity must evade these kinds of food.
 
Avoid the smelling food
Generally speaking, Chinese medicine, especially the aromatic and resolving dampness medicine, contains large amounts of volatile oil. It plays a therapeutic role to the diseases. However, these medicines are especially incompatible with the smelling foods. If not avoid when you taking medicine, efficacy can eventually be reduced. For example, the fish, shrimp, seafood, beef, mutton are all included. For those allergic asthma, allergic rhinitis, boils, eczema, urticaria, atopic dermatitis patients, while they try to avoid the smelling food, the chicken, pork, crab, and goose are also required to eat less. Because these foods contain specific proteins and the proteins can make some sensitive patients prone to allergies, and then aggravate the condition.
