Diet and Nutrition

The bases of health
If the astragalus’ root, the chrysantemum’s flowers or the apricot seeds have therapeutic properties, why the artichokes, onions or rice should not have them too?
Equally to modern medicines and herbal remedies, food also have substances that can affect our organism and its functions.


From a western point of view, a diet has to consider the correct number of kilocalories, taking into account a proper intake of proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and fibre, along with vitamins and minerals.
However, oriental medicine may not give such a priority to these elements and focus more at the properties of each food. Say, how a particular cereal affects the energetic balance of our body and its functions.

For instance, a person suffering from fluid retention that is taking diuretics. From a oriental approach, this person could be considered to have an energetic imbalance affecting the kidneys. If that was the case, that person may benefit from including some foods that acts in this area, such as esparragus, celery or pumpking.

According to the health condition of each person, the diet may be modified for a while until it comes back to balance, though it is common to find that each person has a tendency towards a certain imbalance or condition. There may be some people that tend to have headaches while others have insomnia easily or tend to have repetitive infections. For this reason, in oriental medicine it is common to adapt the diet to each particular individual.
