Eastern Nutrition: Balancing Your Energetic & Seasonal Temperature talk at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine by Mitch Harris LAcTuesday, June 23rd, 2015
DID YOU KNOW? You’re not alone in being confused on what to eat! Modern nutrition is still evolving; it is not a mature discipline yet. It offers a fragmented view of food, focusing on separate nutrients rather than whole foods, and often fails to help balance meals and food plans.
Rather than focusing on weight loss, calorie intake, food groups, or vitamins, Eastern Nutrition focuses on how food tangibly affects each of us. It is not a one size fits all system. Diet is customized according to each patient’s unique constitution, current health condition, and seasonal influences.
Join us with PCOM’s Clinical Chair and Eastern Nutrition teacher Mitchell Harris to learn the basics of this fascinating system that Chinese culture has explored for over 2,000 years. You will come away understanding:
• Which common foods are warming and which are cooling
• What adjustments to make for the seasons
• Your personal basic energetic temperature
