About The Event

FOUNDATIONS AND BODY TYPING (Feb 10th from 10am to 5pm):

  1.  Practitioners will learn a systematic approach to use food therapeutically according to Chinese Medicine. Integrated with yin yang, 5 elements, and 8 principles, the core will be focused on the 7 body types. (Hot, cold, damp, dry, deficient, excess, and balanced).
  2. Practitioners will be able to identify 7 body types according to 8 principles, yin yang, and 5 elements.  This will help practitioners easily identify body types according to Chinese medicine. Each body type will be broken down into qualities, characteristics, and symptoms that are associated with each body type.
  3. Practitioners will learn characteristics of food according to temperature, flavor, color, channels entered and how to match them to the patient's body types.
