What is Chinese nutritional therapy (CNT)?
Chinese nutritional therapy is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM that attains healing by means of natural foods rather than medications. This therapy does not mean going on a diet, but in enhancing the diet of a patient by giving him the opportunity to prepare tasty food that everyone will enjoy and can be readily bought in a local market. It’s all about living a healthy life, without needing to give up all the good stuff.
How is CNT administered?
According to TCM, most foods can be categorized into Yin food and Yang food. The former has the ability to reduce the body’s heat and the latter, the ability to increase the heat. Chinese nutritional therapy is designed to maintain or restore the balance of Yin and Yang in the body by utilizing these two kinds of food in a proper way. A person who consumes excess amounts of Yang food might experience bad breath and acne while a person who eats excess amounts of Yin food can end up anemic or lethargic.
