Dietetics

The discipline of dietetics in Traditional Chinese Medicine is used to support acupuncture and herbal treatments.  Dietary suggestions are usually given if patients are unwilling or unable to take herbal supplements. It is sometimes suggested for children and the elderly due an inability to digest herbs.  It is especially helpful for chronic diseases that require long term care.

Most dietary suggestions are simple additions to your normal food but some can be more complicated with a number of ingredients involved.  I provide to all of my patients a seasonal newsletter with food suggests for each season.  Each season provides us with different foods and therefore it is suggested to consume the food during the season it is harvested to get the most nutritional value.
