Nourish to flourish!

What we put in our bodies on a daily basis can have a huge impact on our health.  The modern diet of processed, salted and sugary foods can have a detrimental effect on the immune system and the body’s overall vitality.  Simple modifications to one’s dietary intake can make a huge difference in helping us feel full of energy and at our best.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, foods are said to have healing properties beyond their vitamin and mineral content.  Different foods, depending on their taste and other factors, can cool you down when you’re hot, moisten you when you’re dry, get rid of mucus, and act like a tonic to strengthen your constitution.  Melissa will counsel you on foods which will restore vitality based on your situation, in terms of both phytonutrient content and traditional Chinese medical theory. With the right awareness, your meals can be your medicine!
