The energetics of food and the use of food to treat disease is a time-honoured tradition in the Orient and one of the main branches of Oriental Medicine. The nature and effects of foods have been observed for centuries and can be a useful aid to health maintenance as well as assisting the healing process.
Foods have been identified by their temperature as being heating or cooling in nature, or by their ability to dry or moisten. Some have been seen to create mucus and phlegm in the body and should be reduced or avoided. Other foods are known for their ability to promote the immune system, whilst others are famed for their ability to unblock obstructions and accumulations and create the free flow of vital energy.
The practitioner can guide you to slowly become aware of your own eating habits and suggest alterations to your diet which you are able to comfortably manage so that you can improve your eating habits at your own pace.
