One of the most important steps towards self-healing is to take responsibility for your own nourishment. This book provides a set of tools to do this. It takes guidance from the insights of traditional Chinese medicine and makes them accessible to the modern day person. There are over 100 recipes using familiar foods that reflect the cosmopolitan nature of Western cuisine. Each recipe's energetic actions are described to enable the reader to choose recipes suited to their own individual needs. There are no good foods or bad foods: all the reader has to do is listen to the wisdom of their own body. This book can be read alone or as an accompaniment to "Helping Ourselves" and "The Energetics of Food".
