Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 044304967X, Paperback)In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) foods can be classified in the same way as herbs and used for medicinal purposes - diet therapy is therefore a very large part of TCM and one of its main therapeutic 'tools'. This book presents the theory of modern use and principles of diet therapy. It covers the classification, properties and actions of a wide range of single foods and seasonings, and suggested combinations of foods. It also gives practical guidance on the treatment of common disorders using dietary therapy. This is a practical text (with no strong competitor - very little is published at all in English on this subject) for any health care practitioner who specialises or has an interest in dietary therapy. For students of TCM it is a sound and thorough introduction to the theory and principles of this area of specialisation.
