Kate Henley, expert in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture is back to talk to us about Seasonal Eating and Living with a specific emphasis on summer.
During her last event with us, Kate shared that providing healing through the diet preceded acupuncture in Traditional Chinese Medicine and is still a major part of the science. Essentially the Chinese adhere to seasonal eating as they believe that our bodies are adapted to eating food that comes from the soil where we live, giving us more energy and allowing us to work to our optimum. Each of the seasons (and there are 5 in Chinese Medicine, the addition of late summer) has a flavour and a colour that supports our bodies. There is also a method of cooking that suits the season.
For this event we will focus on the summer season. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the summer season is associated with the Fire element and the corresponding organs are the Heart and Small Intestine. The summer is considered a yang season, characterized by warmth, activity, and abundance. According to TCM principles, it is important to maintain balance and harmony within the body during this season. Kate will expand on this concept for us advise us about the most appropriate foods and cooking methods for summer.
