“Healing with food is the foundation of Chinese herbal medicine and contains much of the essence of Chinese culture itself. In the process of importing East Asian medicine traditions to the West, however, there has been a distinct focus on the modalities of acupuncture and strong herbal formulations. Ellen Goldsmith, a senior faculty member at National University of Natural Medicine, has specialized in bringing the time honored wisdom of Chinese nutritional medicine to us. In this diligently researched and beautiful book, she combines her passion for cooking with the principles of Chinese medicine, and delivers a multitude of recipes that inform readers how to heal from chronic disease and maintain vitality throughout the seasons.”
