Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners generally don’t recommend a raw foods diet. It is too difficult to digest and breakdown the cellulose fibers they claim. Raw foods are too yin they say and we need more yang. But what of this? What is the merit of these claims? Is there any merit at all in this advice coming from a system which is thousands of years old? Should raw fooders take this advice and change their lifestyle? I’ve seen raw fooders, even some prominent ones do just that.
