Diet and nutrition is a very important part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) used to treat many conditions along with acupuncture, herbal treatment, massage (- tui na-) and body work (tai chi, qi-gong).
Food has a great potential to restore balance and heal many conditions. Used in a proper and knowledgeable way, it is a powerful tool in regaining healthy physiology again. It is more effective and lasting than other treatments because TCM does not focus merely on which foods are best and which to avoid, nor on calories, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins or minerals as contemporary nutritional science. It is a more complex approach where we focus on choosing healing foods for certain conditions: preparation and frequency of intake is important, as well as energy of foods. Certain foods that we consider healthy for one person will not be suitable in the case of another person. The key is in personalized diagnosis and differentiation and choosing which foods will be therapeutic in your current condition. TCM looks at food as a medicine, which not only heals but also prevents health problems.
