TCM Nutritional Counseling
According to Eastern Nutrition Principles every food has an affect on the body. Foods are described by flavor and nature. Foods can be either hot, warm, neutral cool or cold in nature. The flavors are normally broken into six groups; sour, bitter, sweet, spicy, salty, and bland. Each of these flavors has an affinity for specific organs and Qi pathways.
Following a Chinese nutrition guide that has been individualized to best suit your needs, and that incorporates the tenets of Chinese medical theory, can dramatically change the way you look, feel and think about your health.

Choosing foods according to one’s constitution and condition can help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight, minimize digestive discomfort, increase energy, and even help with conception.
Changing the food you eat can have a dramatic difference on your energy levels and mental clarity. A TCM diet can lead to weight loss, eliminate diabetes, improve heart disease and decrease joint pains from arthritis.

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.
I can advise the right foods according to your body type and health concerns, which will help your body recover from problems as well as keep you from becoming ill.
