Chinese Dietary Nutrition
Simple Foods - Balancing and Nourishing
Chinese Medicine has its foundation in living in accordance with the seasonal energy. A food that is beneficial in the warmth of summer may have the opposite effect in the cold of winter. This ties into the second principle, that foods carry particular energetics and flavor: cooling, neutral or warming, sour, bitter, pungent, sweet and salty.
This confers particular properties to a food; astringing, heat clearing, relaxing, dispersing, moisture generating, descending, tonifying, warming and so on.
I can help you determine the best fuel for your body. Nutritional consults may be recommended in order to focus on this aspect of your return to health and balance.
Based on your individual diagnosis, certain foods can be recommended to bring balance to your constitution or condition and enhance your acupuncture treatments and herbal prescriptions.
