In Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) food is not just the way to ones heart, but also used as medicine, as the first step in treating any illness or imbalance. As a TCM practitioner over the last 5 years I have discovered that the most basic and sensible knowledge about diet and health is not available for most people. Therefore and because it brings me great hope and pleasure, I will through this course pass on and teach you, basic TCM diet theory and principals that are rooted in Daoism. At this course you will learn about the functions of your body and about why the body becomes ill (aches, why it can not sleep, concentrate, is constipated, has mania, stress, anxiety) and how you can use the tools of TCM to prevent and treat those illnesses. My vision is to empower you as an individual so that you can take care of your self and your loved ones if needed. Basically to restore and reestablish our native knowledge by giving you basic and easily accessible tools you can apply in your daily life. “Each one teach one ” Inspired by the amazing civil rights activists Black Panthers, Young lords and Dr. Mutulu Shakur, who used TCM as a movement to support their communities in the Bronx, I wish to also contribute to the social justice work of this world by teaching you the basic tools of TCM.
