Diet and Digestion is the #1 Key to Immune, Mental and Overall Health, At True Acupuncture Phoenix Arizona we feel nutrition is a top priority.

Food has been used as medicine for centuries, traditional Chinese medicine looks at food in a unique way.  Food is categorized by temperature (as in does it warm the body or cool they body, for instance cooling inflammation) food can be divided into flavor, pungent, spicy sweet, sour and salty. Various temperatures and flavors of food influence the bodies balance. By keeping in mind these qualities through moderation and variety of foods one can heal chronic disease. 

 

It is important to

  • Sit down to eat
  • Chew food well
  • Pay attention to eating, turn off the television, get away from the work desk
  • Eat organically and locally
  • Eat seasonally
  • Do not skip meals

Traditional Chinese medicine views the stomach and spleen as a place to keep warm and break down the food that is eaten and turns it into energy and blood for the body.  The stomach cooks and breaks down the food, sending the pure part of the food to the spleen to be distributed to the rest of the body and eliminating the waste as feces and urine. It is important to maintain this digestive fire and too many cold and raw foods can put out the digestive fire, weakening and slowing the digestive system.
