Food Therapy is one of the branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is a practice of healing using natural foods along with or instead of medications. Individual recommendations are developed using TCVM theory and are designed to treat specific health conditions. The recipes can be classified into the following categories:
Health Promotion and Prevention — to improve health on a regular basis and to prevent seasonal climate related problems.
Disease Treatment — to treat many clinical conditions including skin problems.
Adjunct Therapy — to complement the primary treatment to treat diseases including otitis, urinary crystals & stones, UTI, IBD, CHF, cancer, renal failure and liver failure.
