During this introduction to Chinese medicine nutrition you will learn about appropriate food choices and preparation along with approaches to eating according to Chinese medicine principles. Dietary adaptations suited to our modern way of life that differ from the traditional Chinese approach will also be discussed (ie: Vegetarian/vegan, raw food, juicing).
