“The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.” –Anne Wigmore

Food is the most powerful medicine. I believe so strongly in the impact of proper nutrition, that dietary therapy is a part of every patient’s treatment plan.

Specializing in women’s health, I am passionate about finding the best foods and herbal formulas to nourish and supplement the body. This is particularly true for postpartum mothers under my care.

Ho, Li and Shan Yu-Su (2011) conducted a clinical study for the Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, which found that Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Dietary Therapy was associated with a decreased anteroposterior diameter of the uterine and the cavity. Based on this study, they suggested that this treatment might increase contractile activity for the postpartum uterus.

Meaning that… by following your treatment plan, you should be able to bounce back to your healthy, super mom abilities in no time after delivery!

Your Dinner Plate Is A Reflection Of Your Health

This is especially true for those suffering from not only digestive disorders, but also from skin disorders such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Everything we put into bodies affects the overall system!
