How and when we nourish ourselves is just as important as what we actually eat. Many health complaints today are exacerbated by our eating habits on a daily basis. Sometimes even seemingly “healthy” food choices may not be good for our unique body and circumstances. There is a lot of hype in this area and it is easy to become confused. Combining the ancient principles of Chinese Medicine with the modern science of nutrition can help to allay this confusion.
