Chinese Medicine Dietary consultations – Now available

Diet is essential to Chinese Medicine and sets the foundation for basic health maintenance and recovery from illness. Every aspect of life relies upon the strength of our digestive system.

In these sessions we develop dietary strategies that combine the knowledge of Western and Eastern Medicine to repair the gut.

The Initial Consultation will involve a full health assessment and discussion of your current diet and how it relates to your health. Pulse diagnosis is used to assess the function of all organs. Tongue Diagnosis is used to assess how your body is managing the carbohydrates, proteins and fats in your diet. In this session, you will learn how to:

  • Select ingredients to use or avoid for your condition
  • Use ingredients for their energetic and nutritional properties

Standard Consultations will involve a re-examination of the pulse, tongue and symptoms. We will change or add recipes and ingredients depending on how you are tracking. Return appointments are important when working with health conditions, because the body can change quickly, and we need to accommodate these changes by adding or eliminating certain ingredients.

About Me

Growing up, my diet was predominately fast-food, sugar, wheat and processed packaged foods. By my late teens, my physical, emotional and mental health were suffering, and I knew that something needed to change.

Jordan Lo PiccoloAfter moving to Melbourne and discovering that vegetables could taste delicious and influence how I felt, my passion for understanding the science and energetics of Food began. Through many years of studying and applying the Western and Eastern Medical framework of food, I was able to completely transform my own emotional and physical health.

I see digestion as an art, where the composition of different ingredients in a meal needs to be compatible with the individual in order to correctly assimilate. Through experience I’ve found that when incompatible foods are selected based on taste preferences or nutritional value alone, this leads stagnation and microbiome imbalances – these being the precursor to most disease.

I am passionate that diet is the pinnacle of all medicine, and it’s the most important aspect of our lives to adjust when problems arise.
