This talk will provide some basics on promoting wellness using Traditional Chinese Medicine nutrition concepts. According to this millennia-old health philosophy, our health flourishes when we get aligned with the cycles and rhythms of nature. We’ll cover:

  • Basic concepts of Traditional Chinese Medicine nutrition: flavours, thermal natures, other characteristics, and cooking methods
  • Basics of “Hot” and “Cold” foods and body types according to TCM
  • Eating according to the seasonal and daily rhythms
  • How to eat to support the digestive system
  • The path to healthy eating habits 
  • General food recommendations in cancer patients and during cancer treatment

The workshop will be presented LIVE, so you can ask questions and make sure you understand.
