Chinese Medicinal Dietary Science

Helping resilience, aiding recovery and maintaining health after Covid and other Illnesses.

Saturday March 5th, 2022, 2–5 pm

(3hrs via Zoom)

Diet is the centerpiece of all health. Chinese medicine offers an exquisitely detailed practice of dietary energetics, and this can be applied with our modern foods available at our local markets and suited to our personal needs.

Today, we are faced with a new infectious disease, its often lingering aftermath, and rising anxiety in society at large. Diet is too often ignored, but in truth there is much we can do for prevention, recovery and emotional stability using the tools of Chinese medicine dietary therapy. In this session, we will learn the fundamentals of the system and how to apply them in our own lives and for our patients. The session will include theory and recipes, along with time for questions and dialogue.

Andrew Sterman is the author of “Welcoming Food, Diet as Medicine for the Home Cook and Other Healers”. The two volumes of Welcoming Food offer a unique entry into understanding the energetics of food, explain how foods work in common sense language and provide easy-to-follow recipes for everyday eating. Andrew teaches food energetics classes and sees private clients for dietary therapy and medical qigong in New York City. He has studied broadly in holistic cooking, meditation and tai chi, and for twenty years has been a student of Daoist Master Jeffrey Yuen in herbal medicine, qigong and, of course, dietary therapy from the classical Chinese medicine tradition.
