Everyone eats so everyone is chosing a medicinal effect. With Peter Torssell


Is it the effect we want?

That eating has specific effects on our lives has been obvious for thousands of years in China and the experience of the hundreds of millions chinese is a treasure house of knowledge that we should use to get clinical effects. All patients are eating so we have to understand if their habits are supporting or disrupting our attempts to help. This knowledge is still evolving as it confronts a massive increase of diseases of affluence and modern research but the theories of TCM certainly come to use. I will cover how to prevent and treat with the use of foods.

To get started with the basics of Food as medicine and how to get clinical effects on individuals there are some things we have to understand from the point of view of chinese medicine.
