“The truly good physician…first treats the patient with food; only when food fails does he resort to drugs.”

-Sun Ssumiao


Applying the TCM principles to a patient’s diet and nutrition will accelerate  the process of recovery as well as aid in the prevention of chronic degenerative diseases. Since foods have active energetic and medicinal properties, they can enhance or obstruct the effects of treatment. TCM practitioners will not only consider the biochemical value of foods, but will also recognize their energetic properties.
