TCM Recipes

Traditional Chinese Medicine encompasses food therapy which uses an awareness of how different foods affect the way our organs interact with our internal energy flows, our minds and emotions. One of the most important rules of TCM food therapy is to enjoy your meals and accept that food can make you feel great. You can use food to stop the hunger pains and to enjoy the taste in your mouth, or you can also use it to improve your health. So before you eat, think about how you feel and how you want to feel, and let tuning into the seasons and your body become your way of life.

(from Food For The Seasons – Eat Well and Stay Healthy the Traditional Chinese Way by Professor Lun Wong, Kath Knapsey – Availabe from Reception)


“TCM is life medicine because it encompasses prevention and healing, mind, body and spirit.”
Professor Lun Wong
