Walnuts are a wonderful snacking and cooking nut that hold a lot of value in Traditional Chinese Medicine Nutrition. The temperature of the nut is warming, and its flavor is sweet. It helps the Kidneys and Lungs. Walnuts boost the Yang of the body, the Qi, and the Jing. Walnuts counteract cold and resolve phlegm. There are teachings that correlate the look of a food to what they help, and many say that walnuts resemble the look of the brain, with a left and right hemisphere, or section. Therefore the food walnut must help strengthen the brain and thinking.
Traditional Chinese Medicine Nutrition is a nutrition system for the mind, body and spirit based on foods that we have in America as well as all over the world. Each item of food whether it is an apple or a cheese burger is representative of different tastes and qualities of nourishment that our body wants or needs. When you add these qualities up and include the season you are eating the food in, and your constitution according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, dietary advice can become very valuable.
Have you heard that changing your diet can change your health issues? It may take a short amount of time or a long amount of time depending of how long you have had the condition and what the condition is, but diet plays a big part in your day to day health. When meeting for a Traditional Chinese Medicine Nutrition session, you will be asked a long list of questions from stress levels, energy levels throughout the day, to sleep patterns and more. Then you will be asked more detailed questions to narrow down your constitutional tendencies. This type of care and consideration is very special and what makes Chinese Medicine Nutrition stand out, because it is about nourishing with food, your mind, body and spirit individually.
Sometimes a person with diabetes has to change 3 items in their diet, and add 2 more items. Sometimes a person with low back pain has to add 3 items into their diet and take away 2 items. We always start with small changes to ease your body into the changes. Eating healthier is the goal overall and can be seen with the nutrition advice discussed during our Traditional Chinese Medicine Nutrition Telemedicine Session. After the first session each following session includes a guided Acupressure Telemedicine session to help you strengthen your health (mind, body and spirit) even further.
