Nutrition after the 5 Elements – Chinese Tradition

The complementary, functional approach of Chinese dietetics is based on the understanding that a balanced interaction of the external energetic influences to which each person is subject and the energetic potential provided by the internal functional circuits is the prerequisite for balance.

Each food influences this balance and is considered and used on the basis of their properties and preparation (temperature behavior, flavor, energetic effect and function circle reference)

Thus foods are mild therapeutics , through an individualised counseling, a better understanding on how foods affect you personally can be gained, and it can be learnt what is good for you or what is better to be avoided, or how preparation, storage or combination of foods can affect their properties.
