Learn how to incorporate herbalism & traditional medicine concepts into your every day eating rituals for better digestion and overall health. We will discuss the healing properties & flavors of different types of foods, culinary herbs & spices, and how to use them to ameliorate digestive issues and other common patterns that are rooted in the gut.


Our wellbeing is rooted in the digestive system, and traditional wisdom offers no shortage of advice on how to eat to best support our body. The workshop look at foods & culinary herbs and spices through the Traditional Chinese Medicine lens of flavors (acrid, bitter, etc.) & temperatures and their associated therapeutic benefits & actions.

We will then discuss common TCM patterns (or groups of associated symptoms) rooted in the digestive system that can affect the body as whole, such as Spleen Qi Deficiency and Stomach Fire. By understanding the nature of the pattern, you'll be able to determine which types of foods are best to remediate it.

Whether you are struggling with difficult digestion or other stubborn health issues or just want to learn how to better feed yourself and your family, this course will provide a wealth of information that will hopefully help you rethink the way you eat!
