FOOD IS MEDICINE.
Proper digestion and assimilation of nutrients is essential for mental, emotional and physical well being. It’s arguably the most important component in optimal health. Remember, it’s not only what you eat, but also how well you absorb the nutrients in the food you eat.
In Chinese Medicine the Gastro Intestinal (GI) Tract is considered the second brain. The gut actually contains more neurons than the brain and 80% of Serotonin (a Neurotransmitter that is responsible for sleep, appetite, depression and other emotional states) is manufactured in the gut. The fuel we ingest has a dramatic impact on how we view and interact with the world and how we think and feel.
80% of you’re immune function resides in the Gastro Intestinal Tract. Ensuring the GI Tract has the proper balance of beneficial flora and fauna is key in maintaining
healthy immune function: allowing the body to fight off viruses,
bacteria, fungi and other pathogens.
We make dietary suggestions that are relevant to the patient’s condition. These suggestions help in maximizing absorption of key nutrients while promoting the elimination of toxins, assisting the patient to achieve optimal health.
