Traditional Persian Medicine – Food

The act of consuming food and drinks transforms into innate heat and produces humors, which acts as our fuel and energy to function healthily. Since the body’s metabolism is ultimately responsible for creating humors, authentic Persian cuisine is deeply rooted in the understanding of the humoral medical system. By pairing and combining different ingredients, it aims to balance the humors internally.

To harness the healing properties of food and herbs, Traditional Persian Medicine (TPM) classifies them according to whether they are hot Garmi or cold Sardi, and moist or dry. This classification refers to the inherent temperament associated with the foods and the effect they have on the temperament of the individual. Garmi foods speed up the metabolism (heat up the humors), while Sardi foods slow it down (cool down the humors).

Determining which foods are appropriate for your temperament is very important to maintaining your wellbeing. An excess of food with qualities similar to the qualities associated with your temperament will create humoral imbalance and impact your health negatively.

Therefore, to preserve and restore your health, TPM suggests that foods from the opposite spectrum of your temperament are the most appropriate for your consumption. If you are a Sanguine/Phlegmatic temperament, then eating hot/moist foods will aggravate your temperament. You should instead select foods that are more cooling and drying.

The season, as well as the time of day we choose to eat have a substantial impact on our humors. Many chronic illnesses can be attributed to the accumulation of toxins resulting from poor digestion and metabolism caused by the excess consumption of Sardi foods. Including Garmi foods in your diet correctly can benefit you by:

  • Increasing the production of digestive enzymes, boosting digestion
  • Increasing your metabolism
  • Allowing your body to better absorb key nutrients

Foods including herbs that are ‘sardi’ (cold) can place several burdens on the body. Firstly, they are harder to digest. They are also harder to assimilate – the absorption of micro-nutrients into the blood stream and cells can leave a greater residue of unnecessary waste products. Therefore, knowing your Temperament and pairing your food correctly is very important.
