Everyone has heard the old adage "You
are what you eat." Well, it's true. Everything
you put into your mouth becomes a part of your cellular
structure, making good nutrition the foundation for
a long and healthy life.
Chinese medicine understands healthy eating and the qualities
of individual foods in a way that can help you make the best
choices that serve your unique constitution. For instance,
did you know that if you have weak digestion (called weak
Spleen qi in Chinese medicine. Some of the symptoms are low
energy, feeling tired after eating, loose stools, and undigested
food in your stools) then eating raw vegetable salads will
not help you lose weight? In fact, eating more raw food than
your digestion can handle can actually contribute to slowing
your metabolism down! Did you know that eating while watching
television, reading, or arguing can seriously hamper digestion
and over time can slow your metabolism and digestive efficiency?
There are just a couple of examples of the wisdom Chinese
medicine has to offer in the areas of eating and nutrition.
Following Chinese medicine's guidance on diet and eating
habits can dramatically improve your health and wellbeing.
Allow it to play a significant role in our work together,
and I promise that you will see your energy increase, your
body feel better, and your spirit soar.
If there are shifts that would greatly benefit your health,
we will work together to determine the best timing and way
in which to make those changes, taking your health, work,
family and preferences into consideration. I encourage people
to make changes gradually and in small increments so that
they can become changes that last.
Nutritional counseling is not a separate service - it is
freely given as a part of your acupuncture or Chinese herbal
medicine consultation. Please contact me directly if you have
any questions about it.
