The power of food as medicine through the seasons is foundational to supporting the balance of health. This course is for practitioners who want to integrate seasonal food recommendations into their practice in a direct and effective way.

Course Overview

This 2-hour class offers a review of the fundamentals of food energetics through the thermal nature (Qi) and flavors of food through the cycle of the 4 seasons and seasonal transitions (Earth). Each seasonal overview will incorporate an overview of its properties, beneficial flavors, balance of yin and yang, cooking methods and movement and activities to support balance and health. The goal of this class is to offer practical and dynamic ways to integrate food recommendations into a Chinese medicine practice as part of the self-care recommendations made to patients.
