“Chinese Dietary Therapy – Water”
February 11, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$20
Balance Your Water Element in Winter
The principles of Chinese Dietary Therapy take into account the energetic properties of foods that can transform health. Find out how to nourish and rebuild your body during the winter months with nutrient dense foods, like bone broth! There will be food tastings and recipes provided!
Food therapy has been an important place in Chinese medicine. Eating appropriately for the seasons has been an important concept for many cultures, for many centuries.
Chinese medicine has broken down food therapy into a more complex system than most medical systems. It has identified food by its healing properties, season, flavors, thermal energetics, and types of conditions it will help treat. This lecture is broken down by season and the element that it correlates to.
For each season there is a discussion about the correlating element, the types of conditions that may affect that element, and the foods that help restore health for that element. There is also food to try, and recipes for the audience.
