Magic, Food & Traditional Thai Medicine
The all famous red hot Tom Yam soup that will make you sweat and drive away the fever
We all know that magical practices and Thai traditional medicine
work pretty close together as many kathas are used to bless herbs and to
heal; Thai traditional medicine likewise put much emphasize on treating ordinary
daily diet as medicine in maintaining consumers’ health. This is undoubtedly one
of very distinct aspects of traditional medicine compared to our modern healing
systems out there.
It is true to say due to this daily diet that Thai ladies and
gentlemen are renowned throughout the world to have amazingly attractive figure
with fair and smooth complexions envied by all those who struggle to keep the
standard but still failed miserably.
Perhaps it is because of the geographical condition, climate
and environment of Thailand enable a vast variety of plants to flourish throughout
the year and many of these edible plants, vegetables and herbs also have very
special and outstanding healing effects.
Some examples are: melon, winged bean, cucumber, bitter
fruits, chilli, gingers, lemon grass, Thai basil, mint, limes etc. Not only
that these plants are delicacies on the dining table, they are very helpful in
maintaining health and preventing many illnesses.
Hence I always think we should study magic, traditional
medicine and culinary arts together holistically to get the maximum benefits:
physically and spiritually.
