Join me on a wonderful journey of self discovery with the Five Elements Nutrition Therapy Workshop
What is Wuxing nutrition therapy?
The Wuxing nutrition therapy is Five Elements nutrition therapy, created on the principles of the ancient art of Chinese nutrition. Please read the article for more information.
Wuxing nutrition therapy, is about self-discovery, self-transformation and self-healing. It puts YOU back in control of your food intake.
What is in the workshop?
We will look at foods, beverages and cooking methods according to the laws of Yin and Yang and the Five Elements and classify them into categories based on thermal energy, taste, flavour, area of influence in the body and the way cooking methods can influence them.
We will learn about seasons, constitutional factors, how food can influence our health and well-being, and how to create recipes for better health and vitality.
Who can benefit from this nutrition therapy workshop?
Anybody who is interested in learning about the ancient Tao healing art of nurturing themselves in accordance to the principles of the Five Elements is most welcome.
Will I have to cook and eat Chinese?
Absolutely not! One of the important rules of Wuxing nutrition therapy is that it encourages the consumption of local foods. You will learn how to combine them based on the Wuxing principles so that you can start cooking for your own personalised needs and preferences.
What if I am vegan or vegetarian?
Wuxing nutrition therapy works with who you are, physically, emotionally and spiritually, to help you transform in the best version of yourself. If you are vegan, you are free to stay vegan, but it will help you be the best version of you as a vegan.
However, please note that the workshop will make mention of all food groups, including meat and dairy products.
Please read the disclaimer before enlisting for the workshop.
