Is living healthier one of your resolutions for 2018? Living healthier has always been one of my resolutions, but it has never been a clear cut one, especially since I think we can always strive to be healthier both physically and mentally. As someone who is also trying to constantly learn, I have been intrigued with various cultures and their own natural medicines, especially Indian and Chinese medicine. Since I know so little about Chinese medicine, I was curious when I found a new book that seemed helpful for living healthier in 2018 – Nutritional Healing with Chinese Medicine: + 175 Recipes for Optimal Health by Ellen Goldsmith. After finding out I would have a chance to review this new book, I couldn’t wait for it to arrive and learn more about how Chinese medicine could be incorporated into my nutritional plan for 2018.

Nutritional Healing with Chinese Medicine: What is It?

Are you wanting to be healthier in 2018 and be better to your body? If so, we think you will love Nutritional Healing with Chinese Medicine: + 175 Recipes for Optimal Health. This book helps teach the wisdom and traditions of Chinese medicine, when it comes to food and how you can incorporate these amazing teachings into your own lifestyle. Here is what the publisher has to say about this new book:

East meets West in the kitchen with the nourishing treasures of Chinese Medicine.

Food can be the most powerful medicine. This outstanding book introduces and teaches how to apply the ancient wisdom and traditions of the healing that comes through food according to Chinese medicine. This is a new way of thinking about what foods are needed to achieve balance and ultimately improve health.

Goldsmith provides a keen and comprehensive understanding behind the basic principles of Chinese medicine so they can be easily applied to day-to-day lives. She takes these same concepts, expands on them for the food to eat in order to maximize the benefits of Chinese dietary therapy.

Eating well is essential to good health and Chinese medicine believes that food truly is medicine. In an easy-to-understand and straightforward manner, Ellen explains how and which combination of foods and flavors act upon the body to move qi (energy) and how they act on the body to warm or cool. Many of the modern day chronic health problems caused by lifestyle, genetics and stress can be helped by distinctive and long lasting changes in the way we eat.

175 enticing recipes organized by season put the theory of Chinese medicine into practice. There are meals that are appropriate for each season from breakfast to dinner, including beverages and desserts. All the recipes are super straightforward, easy to assemble and easily adapted to meet your needs, desires and tastes.

    I like to have this book to read more about Chinese healing. My hubby tried some years ago for his pancreas sever pain that he was going through. He was really sick and weak. We went to downtown Los Angeles. This store sold us some tea that really helped him have energy and no pain.
