According to TCM theory, winter is associated with the element of water and influences the health of the kidneys, bladder, adrenal glands and immune system. Beginning with a review of the Chinese food classifications, you will learn how to support kidneys and immune system through proper diet, lifestyle changes and the use of adaptogenic foods.
This workshop is comprehensive and offers practical knowledge about the theories and practices of traditional Chinese therapies, including how to recognise and treat specific ailments for the winter season, and how to use information about nutrition to help prevent conditions before they occur.
The practical module is all about food: how cooking methods affect the nature of food and their benefit to a patient, the health benefits of phytonutrients, adaptogens and herbs, and how to create food plans that include modern day super foods.
The course is being taught by Rita Mustafa, a Holistic Nutritionist & Register Acupuncturist at Oasis Health & Wellness.
