TCM Course: Basics of TCM Diet Therapy

Course poster updated.jpg

Ever wondered how TCM diet therapy works?


Diet therapy or food therapy is one of the practices in Chinese Medicine to maintain health or treat diseases through food and nutrition. The practice of diet therapy is passed down over generations from our ancestors mainly by word of mouth. Having green bean soup on hot days, drinking a cup of hot ginger tea when one is down with cold or taking nourishing herbal soups when one is having exams are some of the simple practices that continue in some Asian families today. While some do retain the knowledge from their mothers or grandmothers on why, what and how to eat according to seasons or bodily changes, most do not understand and are easily lost on what they should eat. Myths and misperceptions about TCM diet therapy also arise because the knowledge may not be passed down accurately or gets misunderstood overtime.

Continuing more than 60 years of legacy in the practice of medicine, Chong Hoe Healthcare is the new bridge that gaps modern people to ancient wisdom of Chinese Medicine.

In this course, we will bring you back to the basics of diet therapy so you can apply it yourself!
