Nutrition and Food Therapy

foodPugBased on the patient’s individual Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnosis, acupuncture, herbs and TCM Food Therapy may be recommended.

The Chinese realized that herbs and acupuncture would be of minimal effectiveness if the patient’s diet was not nutritionally and energetically balanced with the other branches of TCM. Food has the ability to affect the functioning of the body’s systems just like herbs and acupuncture, and should be regulated to maximize the over-all healing plan.
