Chinese Dietary Therapy is a vital part of the healing process in TCM. As we saw earlier in my articles on Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine our diet has a profound effect on the body. Some foods heal and strengthen our bodies, others weaken and compound illness. Here at the Meridian Acupuncture Clinic I believe that one of the most important aspects of maintaining health is enjoying a healthy, balanced, whole foods diet.

Our digestive function is an integral part of the immune system and plays a significant role in a person’s sense of well-being. Scientific evidence has demonstrated that there are more serotonin receptors in the gut than in the brain, providing us with modern evidence of this ancient knowledge. As such a functional digestive system is actually one of the crucial key to health and happiness.

Chinese Dietary Therapy provides detailed answers to your nutritional questions and compliments traditional acupuncture and herbal treatments. Depending on your condition you may be advised on foods that have a cooling, warming, drying, moistening, purgative, astringent, moving, strengthening, or solidifying effect.

In Chinese Dietary Therapy each organ relates to a different taste and flavor and eating foods that support your recovery is a very important part of Chinese Medicine. Therefore, I offer detailed dietary advice based on the function and health of your organs. For instance if suffering from a hot based pathology such as IBS, then enjoying Barley water or watermelon would be of great help in cooling the body. I’ve written a number of published articles on the subject that you can view on my website - Media

Of course I also approach nutrition from my western medical background and as a top personal trainer and fitness author and offer a specialized weight loss program that incorporates cutting edge sports nutrition and scientifically based principals to support your health and goals. You can learn more about that here – Perfect Body, Perfect Health Program

If you are suffering from any medical condition, be it pain, digestive disorders, chronic illness, fatigue, or simply a sense of unease, then Dietary Therapy may be of help along with a course of Acupuncture or herbs.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding Chinese Dietary Therapy or wish to start a course of treatment then please feel free to contact me or make an appointment where we can discuss any specific concerns or questions you may have.
