Diet and exercise are two ver​y important components of Chinese Medicine, this is because these two lifestyle factors help prevent illness and disease – and prevention is better than cure! Therefore in your treatment plan there will be a diet and lifestyle advice component and we’ll work together to help you achieve your goals. Food affects our health much more than the medicine we take. Our everyday diet can be the root cause of our diseases. Chinese medicine classifies food according to its energetic effects rather than its component parts. Some foods are considered warming and nourishing while others are cooling and eliminating. Some foods can be used to build up energy, while others have blood nourishing proprieties. It is very different from western medicine that specific food always has the same nutritional value to everyone. In Chinese medicine, the same food may be seen as beneficial for certain patients but detrimental to others. Diet, in Chinese Medicine is a key factor to maintain health or recover from illness. Patients are always advised to eat healthy foods according to their constitution.
