Eastern Dietary Therapy

We Are What We Eat

Chinese Dietary Therapy is the use of food as medicine and medicine as food. Learning not only what properties specific foods contain, but also how to utilize them for the purpose of nutrition and longevity.

In Chinese Diet Therapy, the philosophy of yin and yang is used in food and cooking. Yang foods increase the body’s heat, such as raising the metabolism, while Yin foods decrease the body’s heat, such as lowering the metabolism. Other factors must be considered, such as the weather, seasons and body’s balance of yin/yang. For example, in “hot” summer months, it is better to balance your body with “cool” foods, such as fruit.
