Healing takes place when our bodies receive adequate nutrition! Chinese dietary therapy is key when it comes to treating disease and optimizing health and wellness.
In Chinese dietary therapy, food and drinks carry particular energetics and flavor. When it comes to temperature: hot, warm, cool, cold, and neutral apply. When it comes to flavor, the “5 flavors” come into play: sour, bitter, sweet, acrid, and salty.
Since Chinese medicine has its roots in living in accordance with the seasons, a food that is beneficial in the summer may have the opposite effect in the winter. Based on your individual diagnosis, certain foods will be recommended to bring balance to your constitution and enhance your acupuncture treatments and herbal prescriptions.
You are in charge of taking the steps to maintain good health and recuperate from any illness by making healthy choices.
