This post should be dedicated to Ben and Mommy.
Western Science Vs. Eastern Traditions is like
Ben Vs. Mommy. Ben is just very against all the
Chinese Traditions and all the "Old People Say".Western Science : Drink 8 - 10 glasses of water daily.Breastfeeding mothers need to drink more fluid to stay hydrated.Chinese Tradition : No plain water for the first 20 days, or during confinement.As plain water may cause water retainment.Western Science : Eat more fruits and vegetablesfor vitamins and prevent constipation.Chinese Tradition : Only certain fruits and vegetables can be consumed.The variety is not much. Blah~Western Science : Shower daily.Relaxing in warm bath can help the healing.Chinese Tradition : No washing hair, no bathing.Shower or wipe with herbal water only.
I guess the list can go on,
but just to name a few that I care most.
Western people should be happily chewing off
their yummy food, instead of pork, chicken & fish
everyday. I miss my yummy food.
