Listen in to my podcast interview


Podcast, Chinese medicine, Nutritional Healing with Chinese MedicineDoes plant based eating fit into the principles of Chinese medicine and Chinese nutritional theory? There is a place for it. Eating with a broad foundation of vegetables, including dark leafy greens, root vegetables, sea vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, beans and legumes and fruit is most healthful.

But how do we adjust it according to your health condition, to the season and climate at hand, to your activities? Chinese medicine based upon the principles of yin and yang has a perspective that the foundation of herbal medicine is based upon. Foods have the capacity to add warmth, cool or detoxify. Foods have flavor that has therapeutic value. Herbs and spices we have in our kitchen provide great health benefits.


I hope you will listen in to my conversation with Esther Garfin, on her podcast the Alternative Food Network. It was a lively, interesting and informative.
