Chinese Diet Therapy

All foods have individual properties such as texture, taste, and temperature. These properties can be used as physical medicine to optimize the function of the body and help clear the symptoms of disease. They can be used to clear excess dampness such as mucus or phlegm, astringe excess fluids, increase the production of blood components, as well as other uses. Chinese Diet Therapy is used as an adjunct with acupuncture as a continuing treatment performed at home for overall balance.
