Balanced Diet and Nutrition - The Oriental Medicine Way
When you eat a ‘nutritionally’ and ‘energetically’ balanced diet your digestion works well, you breathe and sleep more deeply, rarely get sick, and most of the time enjoy the subtle feeling of ease that is health.
It’s also important to understand that balance implies change, and just like a tide that ebbs and flows, so too does your health. This requires you to know something about how to adjust your ‘rudder’ as needed.
How to do this, and enjoyably float upon the currents of your life, is what the principles of Oriental medicine teach you — intellectually, and more importantly, by helping you become more familiar with that special ‘place’ inside yourself that is the wellspring of health and wellbeing.
If you suffer from weak digestion Oriental medicine offers you immediate help.
Digestion and Your Health
If you’re experiencing problems with your digestion, even if you eat the highest quality food, your body won’t be able to adequately absorb the nutrients that food has to offer. But, when you follow Oriental medicine guidelines for balanced diet and nutrition, you learn how to combine foods in a way that rebalances the energy that fuels your digestive system. A stronger digestive system absorbs more nutrients and improves your overall health.
A simple method of diet and nutrition that transforms breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks into delicious medicinal meals.
Using this simple method of diet and nutrition, your meals take on an ‘alchemical’ quality, transforming your usual breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks into delicious medicinal meals.
So if you suffer from weak digestion, this simple change in diet offers you immediate help along your road to improved health and wellbeing; a road that, according to the ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu, “ ... begins with the first step”: Take it!
A Meal Greater Than the Sum of Its Parts
Like the medicinal ‘formulas’ from the Oriental medicine pharmacy, the ‘recipes’ from the Oriental medicine ‘kitchen’ are greater than the sum of their parts. By combining the right ingredients in its formulas and recipes, Oriental medicine heals, strengthens, and fortifies: in effect, you get your boat repaired, and at the same time learn how to be a better sailor.
