New Fairfield Senior Center – Chinese Dietary Therapy

Christopher Maslowski, L.Ac., will present a lecture at the New Fairfield Senior Center: “Chinese Dietary Therapy”.
Learn how food can transform your health!
A number of ancient Chinese cookbooks and treatises on food (now lost) display an early Chinese interest in food, but no known focus on its medical value. The literature on “nourishing life” (yangsheng 養生) integrated advice on food within broader advice on how to attain immortality. Such books, however, are only precursors of “dietary therapy”, because they did not systematically describe the effect of individual food items.
