Traditional Chinese medicine has shown for centuries that foods not only provide nutrients for the body, but can also cure health problems. TCM physicians ask their patients how they eat, and give dietary advice along with treatment. The knowledge of which foods to eat or which to avoid is very important.
Foods serve many purposes in TCM: to repair damage and regain vitality for recovery; to combat external seasonal influences, to fight early signs of diseases; to lessen the adverse effects of harsh drugs during treatment, and to delay degenerative processes or aging. With proper selection and preparation of food, diet can be part of promoting health on a regular basis. Our food cure treatment program includes a list of foods to be used for food cure.
