Dietary medicine

According to the ideas of Chinese medicine, everything we eat strongly effects our “Qi”. Therefore, the right diet is of special importance. Herbal therapy is directly linked to nutrition theory.

The Chinese ideas about nutrition differ from the “healthy nutrition” generally propagated here. While orthodox medicine ascribes importance to calories and the proportions of fat, protein and carbohydrates, the doctrine of Chinese medicine considers the effect of the respective food on the body. The individual constitution and life situation of each person are always taken into account.

With the right nutrition it is possible – and sometimes indispensable – to influence the healing process and the maintaining of long-term health.

Examples of indications:

  • Support of curative treatment
  • Maintaining health and preventing illness
  • Overweight or underweight
  • Digestive disorders
  • Various indispositions
