Chinese herbs like our food have five different flavours: sour, sweet, bitter, salty and pungent.
These five flavours go to different organ: Sour goes to liver, sweet goes to spleen, bitter goes to heart, slaty goes to kidney and pungent goes to lung.
Too much of the intake of each flavours damage the organ it is related to. for example, an 80 years old male patient with a complaint of frequent urination will not be recommended to take too much salty as the kidney is already deficient.
Food as a medicine plays an important part in our daily life.
