In Eastern Medicine, food is treated as medicinal therapy. Food can either support the healthy functioning of the body or add to its dysfunction. Diet and nutrition play an extremely important role in health and well-being. A balanced diet sustains not only physical health but also mental and spiritual well-being. Like herbs, all foods have different properties and perform different functions in the body. The tastes and temperature unique to each food gives it specific therapeutic properties.
