Nutritional Therapy may include a diet plan or nutritional supplement regime. Carefully following the advice of your practitioner may significantly improve your health!
From the biomedical perspective, when you eat your body digests food which is then converted into energy for use throughout the body.
Traditional Chinese Medicine uses different vocabulary to describe essentially the same process. When you eat, the body converts food into Qi which is then used throughout the body for its various processes.
Remember: what you don’t eat is just as important as what you do eat!
Eating locally-grown whole foods helps to ensure that the food is fresh (therefore you’re getting the most nutrition from it), you’re eating in accordance with the season, and you’re supporting your local and regional farmers.
