Chinese Medicated Diet

Harnessing energetic and thermal natures, and relationships to specific tissues and organs, food can be used as medicine.

Are you looking for a way to boost your health and wellbeing? Consider harnessing the power of food as medicine with Chinese medicated diet. This traditional approach involves using specific ingredients and cooking methods to create delicious dishes that benefit specific organs and body systems.

From herbs and fruits to vegetables, nuts, seeds, and meats, Chinese medicated diet relies on a range of nutrient-rich foods to support your health goals. By carefully balancing these ingredients and using techniques like boiling, steaming, and simmering, you can unlock their maximum therapeutic potential.

So why not try incorporating some Chinese medicated diet principles into your meal planning? Not only can it be a delicious and satisfying way to eat, but it can also help optimize your health and wellbeing. Discover the power of food as medicine today!

In Western nutrition, the foods we eat are evaluated for vitamins, carbohydrates, proteins, fats, calories and other nutritional markers. However, in Chinese medicated diet or food cures, in addition to western nutritional values, attention is placed upon energetic properties like flavour, nature and movement – giving us the ability to harness food’s therapeutic power.

Energetic Thermal Nature

Thermal Nature refers to a food’s capacity to generate sensations – either hot or cold – in the body. The five types of energy are cold, hot, warm, cool and neutral. These refer not to the actual temperature of the food, but the effect on our bodies.

Energetic Thermal Nature
Knowing the thermal nature of foods allows one to intentionally affect the state of health. For example, if someone suffers from cold type arthritis and the pain is particularly worse in the winter, eating foods with warm or hot energy will relieve pain considerably.

Five Flavours

A food’s flavour (which does not always correspond to the food’s taste) reflects the properties of the food. Each of the flavours enter (ie. are most closely related with) specific internal organs and have particular actions on the body.

flavour

Movements

A food’s movement describes how it influences the movement of energy, metabolism and/or function in the body.  Depending on a food’s particular properties, it’s effect moves in different regions within the body.

flavour
Consuming foods according to their thermal nature, flavour and movement can have various effects depending on their combinations. This allows us to use food not only as a means to nourish the body, but also to treat disease and heal. As Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine, and thy medicine be thy food”.
