One of the most powerful modalities of Oriental medicine is nutrition. It is vital to any healing endeavor. Dawn will make specific nutritional recommendations to help you meet your health goals.
“He who seeks medicine and neglects his diet wastes the skill of his doctors.”
– Chinese Proverb
Traditional Chinese medicine has long understood that the quality and quantity of your nutrition are integral to regaining health, preventing illness and promoting longevity.
The quality of what you consume renders your diet either medicinal or harmful. Healthy nutrition provides the energy and substance which nourishes, heals and sustains your body. Whereas poor diet depletes, harms and burdens it with toxins, which contributes to disease, and leads to poor health in the long-run. Your body is like a garden; if you keep the “soil” (body) rich with beneficial nutrition and clean water, you can reap the “flowers” of good health!
Dawn has published several articles on nutrition, now available on her blog. Her philosophy places Traditional Chinese dietetics within the context of a whole-foods, primarily plant-based diet.
At your initial appointment, Dawn will review your diet and suggest changes that will assist with your health goals and challenges. She may also recommend specific nutritional supplements.
