over 130 materials organised in 7 chapters free to use by anyone who is curious about traditional Chinese medicine





The "Search by Symptom Database" is a specially designed tool that will help you find the root cause of a symptom and understand it from the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine.  We designed 10 thorough symptom menus organized by Body Region and Organ System. Selecting one or more symptoms will take you directly to the material that explains the symptom's underlying condition and its causes.

This option provides a basic overview and has an educational purpose. To get a precise diagnosis for your condition in TCM terms you need to see a TCM professional in person.

Food is something we continuously use to sustain our lives. Learning what foods are healing (and what disruptive) for our condition has the potential to convert every single meal into a form of therapy! As we eat couple of times a day the "food as medicine" approach turns daily food consumption into multiple daily treatments that continuously improve our health, raise our energy level, reduce our stress level and boost our mental strength.

Food therapy (as well as acupressure) is offered in the tools listed below - Women's Health, Children's Health, Chronic Emotional Disharmony, Body Pain and Inflammation - as well as in the Treatment section of all materials in the Physiology chapter and the Materia Medica chapter.

Food Therapy for Chronic Emotional Disharmony



In traditional Chinese medicine difficult emotions are approached through our mental awareness but also through our vitality and physiology. Seven negative emotions such as anger, worry, sadness, fear, etc. are associated with the disharmony of a certain organ or organ system. Thus benefiting the organ that the emotion is associated with will release/transform the emotion itself. We designed a unique tool, that after selecting the emotion you are interested in and some accompanying physical symptoms, you will be able to learn what foods, food combinations and acupressure points are beneficial for the organ associated with this emotion. Thus beneficial for releasing the difficult emotion itself!

 Food Therapy for Body Pain and Inflammation



Inflammatory conditions and pain are best counteracted in the long run by changing the diet and lifestyle. From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine the Liver and Kidney functions need to be improved, toxic fluids from the Spleen need to be drained, and the digestion needs to be harmonized.

Seasonal Menu

In traditional Chinese medicine each season corresponds to a certain Element (the Five Elements theory). To those Elements also correspond five colors. We designed a menu for each season which has the specific color fruits, vegetables and herbs for that season, and furthermore corresponds to the organ that is alligned with that season.  In our unique menu you will find seasonal breakfasts, desserts, herbal teas and spreads, as well as meals with the seasonal meat and the seasonal grain.

The  Open Point Calculator is designed based on an ancient Chinese healing system that practices treatment methods according to the daily cycle rather than personal signs and symptoms.  By stimulating the "open point" of the day and hour - an acupuncture point that steadily changes - excess turbid energy exits the body while deficient, scarce energy gets supplemented.
