Understand Food Cure with Chinese Yin-Yang Theory

The traditional Yin-Yang theory is the Chinese way to understand and explain the natural world, including medicine, health, and food, etc. Food cure, to cure certain illnesses with food rather than medicine, is very common among the Chinese. The way food can cure some illnesses can be explained with the Yin-Yang theory. One example is why locally produced bee honey can cure pollen allergy. The Chinese Yin-Yang theory can provide an easy and straight forward explanation for the cure.
