Nutritional Counseling

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.

Chinese Dietary Therapy Benefits

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.

Chinese Dietary Therapist Boise

During each nutritional counseling session in our Boise location, we will discuss your health challenges and goals, go over your current diet, and identify what dietary changes can help bring you into better balance. We recommend bringing a food diary of at least a week’s food intake with you for your first nutritional consultation unless you have or have had an eating disorder.

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.

What our patients are saying

Callie is amazing! Her knowledge of Chinese medicine is extensive and her presence is very calm and welcoming. I thoroughly enjoyed my acupuncture session and recommend her to anyone seeking an intuitive and knowledgeable therapist. I will be back!

Crystle Lynne Logan

One of the most gifted healers and acupuncturists I have ever encountered. Callie is a natural.

Gloria Ravi Inder Overcash

I've been having acupuncture, chiropractic, massage and many other types of wholistic touch type therapies for years. I had my first acupuncture session with Callie a few days ago and found it one of the best I've ever received. I highly recommend her and I will definitely go back. A couple of days later now, I no longer have neck pain, I'm feeling much more balanced and my sleep has improved. Boise is lucky to have Callie.

Callie is an amazing acupuncturist! From the thorough intake to the amazing sessions, I really felt and experienced positive changes with my shoulder issues. The sessions are very relaxing and vitalistic, which is what I look for in a healer. I like working with someone who looks at helping facilitate healing within the body, and I really got that with Callie. I highly recommend her!

Amy M

Callie is one of a kind. A true gem on your path to health. She helped to rebalance me in some incredible ways. I apologize for the TMI, but I don't know how else to express that I had some female issues. Didn't get my period in months. With Callie's guidance, I was flowing once again. That's not all she did for me either. I would not only recommend her, I will continue to see her for my health maintenance. See her, you won't regret it!

Callie is an amazingly gifted TCM practitioner. I have a sensitive system and am very particular when it comes to having anyone work with me. From her thorough intake process to her meticulous, compassionate process of treatment and her knowledge of elements and cures, Callie is by far one of the best I’ve ever been to in over 20 years. Boise is lucky to have her services!
