Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a system of healing that has been used successfully for thousands of years. Built on centuries of careful observation and clinical experience, this healing tradition is now receiving modern scientific recognition. In fact, the World Health Organization recognizes TCM as effective in treating over 70 different conditions ranging from sport injuries to the after effects of stroke. In addition, TCM can help you to achieve an active, healthy lifestyle.
In order to help people interested in Traditional Chinese Medicine get a better understanding of TCM ideas as well as know what to expect from a visit to a practitioner, I made a set of three factsheets.
|I have written a series of diet factsheets for Chinese Medicine practitioners & their patients. These factsheets provide dietary guidelines & specific food recommendations based on common Chinese Medicine imbalances.|
|Try the online assessment questionnaire. This questionnaire asks many of the questions used by acupuncturists & Chinese Medicine practitioners in their assessments & provides lifestyle, diet & qigong meditations suggestions based on your responses.|
|For a modern perspective on Chinese Medicine, I have also collected links to some of the published research happening world-wide on the efficacy of acupuncture & Chinese herbs.|
"We are what we eat." Our diet can either help us regain or maintain a healthy balance, or it can hinder us. I have written a series of factsheets for patients of TCM practitioners. A TCM assessment looks for constellations of key symptoms that fall into different patterns. Once you know what patterns are present, these factsheets provide dietary guidelines and specific food recommendations for common Chinese Medicine imbalances. As well as I have included a general factsheet on a vegetarian diet.
