Yin Yang balance is the underlying principle of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In TCM it is believed that PCOS is due to the imbalance between Yin and Yang. PCOS occurs as a result of Yang deficiency in Spleen and Kidney.
1. Eat Organic Yang Foods
As PCOS and Pre PCOS are conditions caused by the lack of Yang energy, consuming foods that provide Yang energy are beneficial to help reverse PCOS. Food with Yang energy includes red meat, fish, kale, tomatoes, carrots, tofu, black mushrooms, black fungus, ginger. Some fruits and nuts also contain yang energy these include strawberries, kiwis, oranges, goji berries, walnuts, sesame seeds.
To help increase yang energy in your body is it best to reduce the consumption of cold food and salads.
2. Drink Tea Which Contains Yang Energy
Making tea is simple and can be done all by yourself. All you need is the below ingredients.
(3-5 fresh slices pieces per cup of hot water )
Goji berry tea
( 2-3 gram in a cup of boiling hot water)
Red Ginseng Tea
( 3-5 gram per day)
You can buy tea bags from any supermarket which have a high Yang energy level. We recommend teas such as wu loo tea, black tea and red tea.

3. Exercise to boost Yang energy
Regular Running, cycling, fast walking help increase your heart rate and make your body sweat. When your body sweats it removes cold, cold dampness from inside your body helping you increase your Yang energy. Increasing the Yang every helps you reverse PCOS.
This method only works if you workout enough for your body to produce sweat. The key to increasing your Yang energy lies in your body losing the sweat.
4. Keep your feet warm
Your feet are close to the earth 60% of the time, the temperature difference can easily be passed from the earth to the feet. In this case, the temperature is the Yang energy. So, if your feet lose Yang energy this will be passed on throughout the body, this, in turn, affects the spleen and kidney yang level. Because of this, it is very important to keep your feet warm to help reverse PCOS.
Here are some methods to help keep your feet warm:
- Soak your feet in a bowl of hot water 15 – 30 minutes before going to be. To help increase the effectiveness you can also add some herbal ingredients such as ‘ Ai, Hong Hua’ or ‘ Gui Zi’ in the bowl of hot water.
