As part of nutrition therapy, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is for me a foundation and a reference point. Considering, however, realities of today’s civilization and the quality of food, recognized by TCM as healing food, I am in favour of combining the principles of Eastern medicine with classical medicine, taking into account the latest discoveries and scientific research. Depending on your willingness and health condition, I pay a great attention to the cleansing of the liver, kidneys and large intestine, which are the main filters of our body. Appropriate education is also important for me, not only in the area of healthy nutrition, but also a widely understood lifestyle, including the body clock, proper sleep and relaxation or breathing exercises. Depending on your needs and enthusiasm, I carry out so-called “nutritional revolutions”, which, apart from recommendations and health education, also include learning how to cook, help with shopping, or the selection of appropriate dishes and kitchen equipment. I am aware that changing eating habits and lifestyle is a process. We are all different – some people can change everything right away, others prefer to make changes gradually, step by step. Regardless of the range and pace of introduced changes, I am open to being your companion from the beginning to end. I know how much the support is important on the path of getting change, especially when there are more and more questions : ) I treat each person individually, I feel very responsible for each of you, so in order to get to know your health condition better, during the first meeting I carry out an extensive interview lasting at least one hour.
In my practice, I mainly base on nutrition according to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM’s individual nutrition therapy focuses on the qualitative impact of food on the body and includes, for example, the individual constitution and health condition, climate, seasons, sex, age and phase of the menstrual cycle in women. Every food product has a therapeutic value, it helps the body to return to equilibrium or maintain that balance. Classification according to TCM shows how the food affects the various organs of the body, taking into account the following criteria: thermal nature, taste, direction of energy flow. Accurate diagnosis allows choosing the right products, which in combination with properly selected technique of cooking food, will support our body in return to the state of balance or health. During changing our lifestyle, it’s worth to take into account a daily clock of energy flow in the body (so-called human body energy clock) to make the best use of the potential of the whole body and of the mind.
Nowadays, it is worth filling gaps in Eastern approach concerning losing of a considerable amount of nutritional value (especially in fruits and vegetables) over the last several decades. In addition, some foods (such as white sugar, wheat, milk or meat), once valued for their therapeutic value, today are significantly modified and contaminated, so while using them we will not achieve the desired result and we can even harm ourselves. It is therefore worth using knowledge from the latest scientific research regarding the quality of today’s nutritional therapeutic products.
