Episode 13: Five Elements & Five Flavours – Herbal Medicine & Food Medicine

Today we continue our discussion about the Five Elements in Chinese Medicine – and how they relate to the five flavours of different foods and medicinal herbs. This knowledge forms the foundation of Chinese Herbal Medicine and dietary therapy – and it helps direct us in knowing how to use our pantry as a medicine cabinet. There’s lots to talk about, so let’s get into it!

Chinese Medicine is a personalised, functional medicine that treats the individual and the root cause of their presenting imbalance (what conventional medicine would call the symptom, disease or condition). This means that your doctor of Chinese Medicine will work one-on-one with you to achieve a personalised treatment plan. As such, this podcast is for informational purposes and is not intended to diagnose, prescribe or substitute existing medical advice.

    A motivating discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt that that
    you ought to write more about this subject matter, it may not be a taboo matter but usually people don’t discuss these topics.
    To the next! Cheers!!
