Dietary therapy is a key component in Oriental medicine, and differs from western nutrition. The focus is placed not only on the nutritional content of a specific food, but also on its properties such as season, color, taste and temperature. Emphasis is placed on awareness of the foods we eat, when we eat them, and even how we cook them. Through diet we believe that one can maintain internal balance, both mentally and physically, prevent disease, and assist the body in healing itself holistically.
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
