Chinese Food Therapy

In order to get the most out of acupuncture or Chinese herbal medicine, it is very important to support your treatment with the proper diet and lifestyle.

According to Traditional Chine Medicine (TCM), every food has both a nature and flavor(s). A food’s nature is its effect on the temperature of the body. Thus a food can be either hot, warm, neutral, cool, or cold. Since Chinese medicine works on the basis of restoring balance to the body, if one suffers from hot disease, they should avoid hot foods and eat more cool and cold foods, and vice versa.

Dietary recommendations will be given based on a patient’s pattern and diagnosis according to TCM and adjusted for each individual.
