Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine theory of five elements state that certain colors correspond to certain organs in acupuncture meridian energetic pathways.
Everyone knows that red wine is good for the heart. In acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the red color corresponds to the heart.
As I was sitting at the dinner table on my vacation in Vienna thinking of ordering the red wine, most of my friends were ordering white wine. As I gave in to drinking the white wine, I felt I was not getting the medicinal benefits.
The Austrian wine was absolutely amazing, but the acupuncture practitioner in me wanted the health benefits. Then I had an epiphany, the white color correspons to the Lungs and Large intestine in acupuncture and herbal medicine, so it's got to be good for the lungs. I was convinced.
After getting home to New York I googled "white wine for lungs" and I was absolutely amazed that sure enough there was tons of scientific research linking white wine varieties to improving the Lungs and those researchers are not even acupuncturists, great news or what?
* See the study link at the bottom
Reserchers at the University of Buffalo did the study. It was done on 1,555 people from New York. This reaearch was presented at the American Thoracic Society.
So Red or White whine either way, when you drink in moderation your body benefits.
The big question is how did Ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine Herbalists and Acupuncturists know about it? A lot of Chinese Herbal Medicine is made with wine.
Now isn't it much better than 'the bitter pill' of Western Medicine? It was a joke and not a medical advice. Please see your MD regarding your drinking choices and medical condition, cause I do not want to be sued, cheers!
