Reducing internal fire, jiang huo

In response.

Some Buddhists advise not eating meat, not eating hot sauce, not eating garlic, not eating onions, not eating hot chili peppers, etc.

To reduce internal fire, as I had said before, the Chinese drink cool teas, jasmine tea, chrysanthemum tea, eat bitter melon and drink bitter melon soup, eat winter melon and drink winter melon soup, eat fish instead of red meat, and maybe chicken meat from chickens that are free range organic farm raised and that have not been fed any kind of chemical growth hormones and other enhancers.

And stay away from sugar in any form.
