Traditional Chinese Medicine has for thousands of years used plants in formulas to combat symptoms.
From skin heat, digestion too slow or too fast, to nourish blood, to help the liver, kidneys and spleen work better.
Food Therapy helps understand the pattern the animal has.
Food Therapy, is different from Western nutrition, as it looks at how food warms and cools the body. Chinese Herbology extends this knowledge to help cases of deficiencies, weaknesses or excess heat.
One typical example of ‘stomach heat’ is when we see a cat or dog eating grass, grass is cooling rather like a salad.
From this, we can choose foods and herbs to reduce symptoms and clear any excess or nourish a deficiency.
