Wholistic Eating Consultation

Inappropriate and unbalanced dietary habits are among the most significant causes of energetic disharmony in our bodies. An understanding of food from the perspective of the food philosophy of Chinese Traditional Medicine can be of tremendous benefit in working toward a more healthy lifestyle. The Consultation is based on the holistic concept of Yin and Yang and illustrates how thermal nature and flavor of foods influence the body. It is an energetically oriented approach to sustain health and treat imbalances leading to or underlying disease. Marina focuses on:

  • Therapeutic use of daily foods for acute and chronic disease adjusted to the clients individual TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) diagnosis
  • Prevention of disease by good food choices according to climatic changes and seasonal transitions

Marina offers a 50 min individual introduction into energetic concepts of Traditional Chinese Food Therapy. The information provided is based on accumulated wisdom of several thousand years of Chinese Medicine. You will learn and be encouraged to explore new cooking ideas. There is strong emphasis on organic, local and seasonal food choices.

If you have a medical condition requiring dietary restrictions or suffer anorexia or bulimia we recommend to consult with your health professionals. The Wholistic Eating Consultation is intended as a supplemental life style choice to, not to substitute for a licensed dietician's or your MD's guidance.
