Food Therapy



Eastern Medicine's "Nutrition"

Food Therapy is eastern medicine’s version of nutrition. However, in addition to today’s knowledge of things like calories from proteins, carbohydrates, fats, etc., food therapy considers the property of foods.

For example, in the winter we should be consuming foods with warming properties (think soups and roasted root vegetables) vs. foods with cold properties (raw salads and ice cream). Or, for that matter, if you are someone who is “always cold”, you should consider eating warming foods most of the time...even if it’s not cold outside.

Food Recommendations Specifically for You

Much like how your acupuncture points or herbal remedies will be selected based upon your body’s constitution and presenting symptoms, your food therapy recommendations will be based upon these considerations as well.
