Food therapy (TCM) Traditional Chinese Medicine

Post by Athena* on Tue Dec 02, 2014 5:25 pm


The Traditional Chinese Medical (TCM) view of food therapy

There is so much conflicting information about food and diet that it becomes nearly impossible to know what the ‘best food’ to eat really is, or if certain foods are ‘good’ for you or ‘bad’ for you.

In Chinese medicine, there are not ‘good’ foods or ‘bad’ foods; there are appropriate foods for each individual and inappropriate food for a specific individual, just as there are appropriate herbs for each individual depending on what their health needs are. Yang warming tonic herbs would be quite beneficial for an individual who is cold and fatigued; however, the same nourishing warming herbs may cause irritation and headaches in someone who is thirsty and experiencing night sweats as seen with Yin Deficiency. Like herbs, foods have different energetic qualities; they can be warming or cooling for example. In TCM, food therapy is simply part of the larger system of medicine which includes acupuncture and herbalism.
