"Kastner's Chinese Nutrition Therapy is an excellent introduction to
Chinese dietetics for both students and practitioners of Chinese medicine ... I
whole-heartedly endorse his book."
- Nigel Wiseman


For millennia, the Chinese
have taught that a healthy, appropriate diet is an integral part of maintaining
good health and healing various disorders. Here, the author demystifies Chinese
dietetics, one of the pillars of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Joerg Kastner
provides an introduction to the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and
the "energetics" of foods. Emphasizing a holistic approach throughout, Chinese
Nutrition Therapy provides readers with tools for integrating the principles of
Chinese dietetics into their daily lives. The book includes a comprehensive
classification of more than 300 readily available foods such as vegetables,
grains, herbs and spices, fruit, meat, seafood, dairy products, oils and fats,
and more. Numerous clinical examples and treatment suggestions artfully combine
Western medical conditions with Chinese diagnostic techniques.

For this second
edition the section on clinical examples has been expanded by detailed chapters
on the treatment of obesity and physical and / or emotional fatigue. The
explanation of causes of diseases according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the
different symptoms, and the lists of recommended foods and foods to avoid are
supplemented by advice on the adequate acupuncture treatment.



Highlights:



  • Descriptions of Chinese dietetics in practice and
    discussions of dietary factors, such as seasonal adaptations and differing
    requirements for children and seniors

  • Practical tips on how to adapt Chinese nutrition
    therapy to Western products and cooking methods

  • Clinical examples covering the major organ systems

  • A handy "A to Z" list of common foods and their healing
    characteristics


An essential reference for students and practitioners of
Traditional Chinese Medicine, this user-friendly book will also be valued by
nutritionists, dieticians, physicians, and anyone interested in living a long
and healthy life.
