Here at Flourish, we weave together the best of traditional Chinese / East Asian nutritional therapy with the best of evidence-based functional Western approaches to diet, in order to provide our patients with the most effective advice tailored to their specific needs.
TCM takes a different approach to nutritional therapy than the standard Western medicine approach. Nutrition is not just a part of care for weight loss or digestive patients.
It’s not just about avoiding “bad” food and eating plenty of “good” food.
Instead, it’s a part of care for most of our patients,regardless of their primary issue – and we focus on encouraging patients to eat the type of foods that help to balance their body. It’s about finding the food that best suits your body, not about a prescriptive one-size-fits-all “wellness” diet.
And we provide ongoing support, over time, to make sure that you have what you need to build those healthy habits.
For patients that are seeking acupuncture care through Flourish, nutritional guidance is considered part of your standard care, when deemed relevant by your practitioner.
If you’re interested in seeking nutritional support without acupuncture, there are virtual options for care available.
