Food intolerances and indigestion are common topics in TCM practice.

This seminar will provide a clear understanding and practice-oriented treatment skills in the area of nutrition.

Course description

Besides rare cases of severe allergic reactions, food intolerances and discomfort resulting from food are much more common in the TCM practice. The flood of information available today and the differing opinions about nutrition are often confusing and as a result people no longer know what to eat and how to get rid of such problems.

Dr. Yang will compare and discuss these issues using modern and conventional perspectives and facts. She will also emphasise the basic TCM point of view on food and digestion and explain why many diets fail after brief success. This will be followed by the syndromes, herbs, formulas, acupuncture points and treatment strategies. In addition, food will also be discussed - those which can often cause problems or can help a disturbed digestive system. The seminar will be rounded off with cooking and eating tips to provide a clear understanding and hands-on treatment skills.
