Nutrition: Chinese Dietary Remedies*
Reestablishing Health One Meal at a Time
For example, if a person tends to be deficient, cold, and fatigued, we would recommend eating warming, nourishing foods such as ginger, garlic and lamb, while avoiding cooling foods such as cold raw vegetables or ice cold drinks. On the other hand, for people with robust constitutions and tendencies to being hot, we might recommend avoiding spicy foods and alcohol. In each case, the beauty of Chinese nutrition is that it follows Chinese medicinal principles thus allowing us to provide dietary recommendations specific to each individual’s needs. Once one understands how to integrate the appropriate foods into his or her daily life, health can be promoted and reestablished.*
