Understanding Digestion from a TCM perspective

Why is it important to protect our digestion?

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) our digestion is the centre of our being. The Stomach and Spleen (earth element organs)  control how well we extract nutrients from food, how we process this and convert it into energy as well as eliminate unwanted bi-products (via the intestines).

In this brief video, Katherine Berry and Patricia Kowal discuss the role of the digestion and the importance of eating well​ and in accordance with your elemental body type and the laws of nature.

You may find this video shocking: foods that you were thought were healthy may not be doing you any good!​

Note: This was originally recorded as a podcast for The Jolt Files, however Patricia has developed some excellent info-graphics to demonstrate the theories of TCM and digestion, shared in this video.

If I could just get some SLEEP!


Getting good quality sleep is vital to healthy living.

The amount and time that you sleep is important to enhance your well being and protect your physical and mental health.

Daily function and quality of life are compromised when sleep is lacking, disturbed, unpredictable and infrequent.

Why is sleep so important?

During sleep, your body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health. In children and teens, sleep also helps support growth and development.

Sleep deficiency can cause poor mental functioning and judgment, putting a person at risk of injury (such as a car accident) or work or study inefficiently leading to problems over time.
