Lifestyle and diet therapy

Lifestyle and diet therapy, using Chinese medicine principles, is such a gift to you because this is the knowledge that you take with you for the rest of your life. It helps you to make positive choices to support your unique condition.

What it’s not!

It is NOT a list of “good foods” and “bad foods”. I can’t bear the thought of people looking at the abundance of beautiful fresh food that we have in this country, and creating mental barriers against it. Holding denial or the idea of “badness” in your mind is harmful. I’m not going to give you a list of “naughty food” that you’re not allowed to have! Forget it. Life is short and food is a celebration. What I will do, however, is teach you the reasons why some food is less desirable. This is Chinese medicine knowledge that you probably haven’t come across before. Supported by that knowledge, you will just feel like making choices that feel good.

It is not a regime. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to health. Everyone has their “Achilles heel”. Your neighbour gets the flu every time she’s stressed or run down. Your work colleague gets digestive upsets. You get tension headaches. We aren’t clones of each other – isn’t that great news! So there’s no “right way” to feel happy, vital, peaceful and joyful – ie, healthy. Your path to true health is your own one to travel. You’ll find all kinds of treasures along the way. I love to teach people Chinese medicine knowledge as it becomes relevant to them, at that particular point on the path. This opens up possibilities to you right when you need them.
