Nourishing you from within

Food Energetics

It is increasingly difficult to discern today what eating healthily actually means. How much and how often, raw food, or cooked, what proportions of what foods at what time. Paleo, Atkins, Vegan, or Juicing?

A Chinese Medicine Food Energetics diet might be just the answer, as it is easy to follow and devised according to your own, individual constitution. You will find that this easy-to-follow dietary concept can be quickly adjusted to your lifestyle and notice improvement in your energy levels, digestion and sleep very quickly.

How does it work?

Nutrition as we know it in Western society focuses on the analytical and quantitative food categorisations based on material food components: vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates and trace elements.

The Oriental view is based on the holistic interchangeability concept of Yin and Yang qualities and illustrates how the thermal nature and flavours of foods work in the body and how this principle can contribute to your personal best health. By looking at the holistic nature of different foods, we can choose many different combinations and fine-tune the food energetics to individual needs.

Being healthy does not mean the absence of disease.

Often in clinical practice we learn that symptoms such as short and interrupted sleep, loose stools and sweet food cravings are not something our patients consider a symptom.

Low energy levels and fatigue, especially in patients on the fertility journey, are very common, yet not considered a significant symptom. This is why I place a paramount importance on the way the diet plan is devised, and followed through, with specific details and recipes for each and every individual.

Chinese food therapy is a common-sense diet.

Chinese food therapy is a common-sense diet. It re-connects you to the somewhat forgotten cyclical processes in nature and awakens you to eating simply-prepared, wholesome foods, recommended according to your personal constitution. It works well alongside any medication or supplements you might be taking.

If you are on a natural or assisted conception journey, this is a MAJOR contributing factor to your desired outcome, and it gives you an opportunity to be in charge where you may feel this has been taken away from you. Sleeping well, having lots of energy, and having a robust immune system will confirm you are well on your way.
