Balanced food choices are an important part of supporting health in a holistic way.
Traditional healing systems like Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine classify food and herbs according to their energetic effect on the body. Food and herbs are classified as to their moistening, drying, cooling and heating effects, as well as their flavor. By classifying foods in this way, it is then possible to discern which foods will best support you in your healing journey.
Michele Collins Vergara and Andres Vergara provide guidance and counsel about how to tailor food choices to support and promote maximum healing. They use Chinese medicine to integrate food therapy with herbal therapy, acupuncture, and medical qi gong and can incorporate this into an in person office visit or a phone appointment.
