Nutrition Therapy is considered a major component of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Recognizing the powerful therapeutic value in food and the importance of establishing a healthy diet, recommendations are often prescribed to patients to strengthen and support their overall health and treatment plans. Although nutritional therapy is often recognized for treating ailments related to digestive complaints and weight management, it is also used to treat a wide variety of conditions including: fatigue, allergies, skin conditions, mental/emotional disorders, and immune support.
Because of the diverse therapeutic value of nutrition, food therapy may be considered as a separate treatment modality or complementary when used in conjunction with other aspects of Chinese Medicine. ProActive Acupuncture often provides dietary recommendations to patients with conditions that require nutrition therapy; however, individuals who are not interested in acupuncture may also schedule private consultations to discuss their dietary concerns and health goals.
