Food Spread


In Chinese Medicine, food is seen as a form of medicine that can be used to support and nourish the body, and each food is believed to have its own unique energetic properties that can affect the body in specific ways. For example, some foods are considered warming, while others are cooling. Some foods are believed to tonify or strengthen the body, while others have a draining or dispersing effect.

Dietary Therapy in TCM involves using food to restore balance and harmony in the body. It may involve making dietary adjustments based on an individual's unique constitution, as well as using specific foods and cooking methods to address specific health conditions.

For example, someone with a weak digestive system may be advised to eat warm, cooked foods that are easy to digest, while someone with a tendency towards inflammation may be advised to eat cooling, anti-inflammatory foods such as leafy greens and cucumber.

Overall, Dietary Therapy is a powerful tool in the TCM toolbox and can be used in conjunction with other modalities such as acupuncture and herbal medicine to support health and well-being.
