TCM Diet Therapy

In Chinese medicine, there is no difference between food and medicine, as the correct food can sometimes be all the medicine you need. Food is viewed as a powerful tool to help create and maintain wellness.


There are a thousand and one ways to eat these days, but in Chinese dietary therapy, we utilize the flavours and natures of foods to a well-balanced meal. There are 5 flavours: sour, bitter, sweet, acrid (spicy/pungent), and salty, and every flavour affects a different organ or system. We also consider 5 temperatures: hot, warm, neutral, cool and cold. 


We don’t see foods only as a breakdown of proteins, carbohydrates and fats, but as a form of balancing your body according to your particular constitution and condition. ‘One man’s meat is another man’s poison’ - Thomas Middleton


Just like in acupuncture, there is no universal diet protocol: balance is unique for each person. After your evaluation, we will tailor your unique list of foods as well as the preparation according to your needs.
