The Diet That Heals: Chinese Medicated Diet
TCM approach to diet based on each person's individual needs
Burnaby, BC - April 20, 2010 - Our typical Western diet is heavy on processed, fatty foods that overfeed and under-nourish the body and are detrimental to our health. Perhaps that is why medical or "healing" foods are becoming increasingly popular and are expected to soon become one of the major emerging trends in the food industry.
Holistic Approach to Diet
Traditional Chinese medicine has long had a high regard for healing foods, viewing them equal to medicine. In the Chinese medicated diet (a popular treatment within traditional Chinese medicine), food performs the same function as medicine; it nourishes the body, heals the body, and prevents illness.
A Diet Tailored to You
The purpose of the Chinese medicated diet is to provide balanced and complete nutrition in a therapeutic diet. The diet can be used to prevent or to treat illnesses. No two individuals will have the same diet because each one incorporates specific Chinese medicines based on the individual's specific physical health needs.
TCM vs. Western Medicine
Too often pharmaceutical drugs produce vitamin deficiencies that wreak havoc on the body and create poor overall health. In contrast, the Chinese medicated diet takes a natural, holistic approach that can be used to treat countless illnesses and diseases by supplying the body with an optimal balance of nutrition and medicine.
