The hot and cold theory is an important part of Traditional Medicines (TMs) which can be used in health care, disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment purposes. However, little has been said about the material basis of the theory and how the hot and cold theory can be integrated with the conventional medicine. This article will summarize how the Hot and Cold Theory may help health care providers to personalize their treatment, as well as the material basis of the theory and its future prospects.
