FOOD THERAPY AND nutritional support
Food Therapy is a modality of Chinese Medicine rooted in the understanding of how certain foods affect each body differently. Food therapy is very specific to the individual and is determined once the physician has established your TCM Pattern Differentiation (Chinese Medicine diagnosis). In Chinese Medicine food is seen as medicinal and all food has different medicinal properties, which is why each food therapy plan is specific to an individual.
For best results, Food Therapy may be utilized in conjunction with other modalities, such as Chinese Herbs and Acupuncture.
Nutritional Counseling consists of diet modification through Food Therapy along with patient education, understanding food labeling, and more.
