Diet has become a Buzz word for Health Care. Nutrition is being constantly re-defined. And yet as Practitioners of Chinese Medicine we sit on a vast wealth of knowledge in relation to curing our ills through dietary therapy.
Nourishing Qi Jing and Shen
‘Doctors should first understand the cause of Disease and then treat it with diet. Medicine should only be used if diet fails’. Sun Si Miao
It is a key element of oriental philosophy that to live well we must eat well. The Chinese diet is full of Medicinal Herbs and substances which are traditionally used to maintain good health. Are there ways in which we as practitioners can better use this knowledge to enhance clinical treatments for our patients and provide even better outcomes?
In this Workshop Daverick will provide Practical Nutritional Strategies using Case Studies and suggesting various recipe approaches including Soups & Stocks to help our patients with particular diseases/disharmonies including Cancer.
