In Chinese Medicine, the balance of digestive health can be altered by a variety of factors such as stress, western medications and chemical additives in modern, highly processed foods. By far the most important factor however, is the diet itself, and the mix of food people have in their diets. Chinese culture views diet therapy very differently from a typical western nutritionist. In Chinese Medicine, the suitability of food depends largely on the constitution of a person.
A significant part of helping people return to digestive health is to advise them on foods that they are best suited for and also foods that they should typically avoid. We like to incorporate dietary advice as a part of our practice as good nutrition is paramount in helping people return to good health.

- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
