I regularly read articles around the web about Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. It’s always fun to get new ideas and good information from other acupuncturists. Here are some excerpts from posts I’ve enjoyed.
Many people search the internet for good food choices and recipes. Chinese Medicine believes in eating in harmony with the season. In this post from ~ Are You Ready to Thrive? Becca Seitz, MAcOM, LAc gives some TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) tips for eating well in the fall and winter.
*Eat foods that have been warmed. I know it’s tempting to eat that raw salad, but try to avoid it during the cooler months – they’re difficult to digest and can cause symptoms such as gas and bloating.
*Eat foods that are “in season.” Apples, Pears, Winter Squashes, etc. are all foods that will help strengthen our bodies for the upcoming winter.
*Stews are your best friend. The foods in stews have already been cooked, making it super easy to digest, plus there’s nothing better to warm you up on those cooler nights than a steamy bowl of soup. Num!
