Eating and Drinking Guidelines

In matters of eating and drinking, Dr. Wu adheres to the Five Elements and Eight Principles theory that is the basis for all traditional Chinese medicine. Each food or herb has unique properties that affect the flow of energy, or Qi/Blood, in your body. To balance your Qi/Blood for optimal health, Dr. Wu may recommend that you avoid certain foods or add new foods. These recommendations may change as your condition evolves, and may vary by season. By adopting these recommendations, you can greatly enhance the effectiveness of your acupuncture and acupressure treatments and herbal prescriptions.
