Here is the adaptation I made for a client with a current heat rash and underlying SP qi vacuity – Enjoy! Mitch


Cleansing Rash – Rice Dish

1-2 tsp each ground cumin, coriander, fenugreek and turmeric (you can get these bulk at Whole Foods for cheap)
2 tsp fresh ginger, grated or mashed
1 large bay leaf
1 celery stalk, diced

1 small handful of cilantro chopped
1-2 cups mung beans (presoaked over night; read below for tips on cooking dried beans)
1 bunch kale, immersed and swished in water to remove grit, then thinly sliced
1 cup brown rice, cooked separately according to package directions

Fry the spices over medium heat in just a few teapoons of olive oil then add the celery and mung beans, covering with water plus a couple inches extra. Cover and keep at a low boil until the mung beans are soft (about 45 minutes, but if you use presoaked beans maybe shorter time till cooked).

Add the cooked rice and kale and simmer until the kale turns bright green. Salt and pepper to taste.

The brown rice, and all strengthen the digestive qi to boost immune system, while the spices serve to boost digestive enzyme activity helping you better absorb nutrients. The kale will help support your blood. The mung beans, cilantro and celery will help clear the heat and inflammation to help the rash.

Hope it turns out well~
