My theory of "Yeet hay" AKA Hot Air (chinese medicine)

Before I begin, I am no professional. Everything I write is pure speculation and is probably wrong. I encourage people to point out whatever that does not seem right and discuss.

Background: Yeet hay or "hot air" is used in Chinese medicine to explain certain "illnesses". They will say it's caused by eating certain food that are full of "hot air". To counteract this, people eat "leung" or "cold" food, commonly in the form of herbal tea (leung cha) in order to balance out the hot air.

Some common symptoms of yeet hay:
acne
sore throat
bad breathe
canker sores

Once again, I am not a dietitian and this is my speculation. My theory is Yeet hay is a deficiency of vitamin C.

Eating Yeet hay food somehow decreases your vitamin C stores in your body. If you look at the symptoms, they are explainable with lack of vitamins:

Acne - Vitamin C is an antioxidant and is needed for skin regeneration (http://www.associatedcontent.com/art...pg2.html?cat=5)
Sore throat - Common cold, vitamin C remedies, etc
Bad breath - Gingivitis, scurvy, and other gum disease linked with vitamin deficiency (http://altmedicine.about.com/od/heal...um_disease.htm)
canker sores - No real link between Vit C and canker sore but B12 and folic acid deficiency is confirmed. Perhaps the only link with Vit C and canker sore is that Vit C boosts immune system (http://www.teatreewonders.com/vitami...old-sores.html)

"Yeet hay" or Excessive Heat/ Heat Imbalance is a term used that explains an imbalance in the system. The imbalances cause the symptoms depending on which organ is not working optimally. In Traditional Chinese Medicine they categorize foods into categories that will aid in balancing the body, back to it's optimal usage. Unlike Western Medicine they believe in finding the root of the problem instead of dealing with the symptoms. There's a strong sense of "you are what you eat" behind the basis of Holistic Medicine (eg. Traditional Chinese, Ayurveda). Traditional Chinese and Ayurveda hold a lot of the same values but in different terms and have been practiced for thousands of years. Herbal teas are used because a lot of common people do not understand the foods they ingest and in the end they have all these problems and the "fastest" way besides ingesting certain foods is with herbal teas.

Say if your body is in the stage of "heat" you would need foods or herbs that counteract that, so you'd have to take "cooling" foods such as watermelon, watercrest, etc.

When you have extra heat in your body, it takes more energy on your body to work thus it weakens your immune system.

Other common symptoms are:
-constipation/ hard, smelly stool
-nightmares/insomnia
-easily agitated/ temper
-overly high sex drive
-achey muscles

vitamin c is so abundant in our diets and many foods are enriched with it (ie one juice box contains your daily needs already)
it's unlikely for the average person to be deficient in it

I don't recall an actual thread on this and I can't seem to find it. Want to link it up so I can merge it?

I know we've discussed this matter in other threads quite frequently.

The DRI for vitamin C is derived from the minimum required to prevent scurvy. The amount required for optimal health is still debated.

You'd have to try really hard not to get enough vitamin C in your diet. I doubt it's at all related to 'yeet hay'

Other than excessive heat no there's no term. Yeet Hay is a term that describes the thermal nature of food and people. It's not in the inaugural practices of Western Medicine in that sense, so an actual English term is not generated.

Yeet Hay is a condition of the body before it leads to other issues like colds and other ailments. In Western Medicine, the symptoms are treated when say a cold happens, Yeet Hay is subtle reactions in the body before an actual "illness" takes place, it's sort of a pro-active term describing the reactions of a person's internal environment due to the foods they ingest and other external factors.
