Balancing with Food
This is a fun unit that challenges our beliefs and habits around foods we habitually eat. You will be experimenting with different dietary programs – food combining, food rotation, eating according to 5-Element food colour and taste – so you can advise from personal experience.
The unit develops an understanding of the chain of life, the six stages of nutrition, food combining; the concept of biogenic, biostatic, biocidic substances; to construct a diet using 5-Element, food family and food rotation principles; to develop skill in using C1 and ear acu-point sensitivity tests.
You will gain an understanding of how food produces energy, and also the process of nutritional transport from eating to elimination. After completing this unit you will be able to use food to improve 5-Element energy, meridian and muscle function to balance body energy.
You will extend your discernment of whether foods and supplements are really energy-producing, static or rob us of energy. Also you will learn some double checks to question the validity of the nutritional response in relation to sensitivities. There is more in a later unit. As well the unit will extend your understanding of the development, philosophy and principles of Kinesiology.
