It is estimated by the year 2030 that 90 percent of America’s population will be obese. As of last year, 190 billion US dollars were spent on health care related issues related to obesity. Obesity is linked to a wide variety of health diseases such as hypertension, Diabetes II, neuropathy, and possible cancers.

Why is nutrition so important?
Chinese nutritional consulting is used to support healing and disease prevention. Without proper nutrition, the body cannot create a new foundation for health changes to occur. Chinese nutrition uniquely differs from Western science nutrition in that it determines the therapeutic properties of foods instead of analyzing the chemical constituents of them. The advantage of this approach lies in its ability to customize to every individual’s needs.
Furthermore, Chinese nutrition takes into consideration such factors as method of preparation, body type, season, and one’s geographical location and foods that grow locally in determining the appropriate food plan.
Depending on the health conditions that need to be addressed, Chinese herbal therapy and or Acupuncture can be adjunct therapies in order to deliver even quicker results with nutritional consulting.
