Kitchen Medicine with Tamara Wolfson | The Shift Network

Kitchen Medicine with Tamara Wolfson | The Shift Network: "

Module 1: Food as Medicine
Eating for Wellness, Connection & Joy (February 14)

The most powerful place to start a journey to optimal wellbeing and healing is in the kitchen, viewing food as medicine. We’ll begin by discovering how to eat to nourish your gut microbiome — the mini-ecosystem of your digestive tract where the key to your health begins.
We’ll learn about foods and herbs that can help you cleanse your system. At the beginning of most natural medicine protocols, there’s a general consensus that before healing can occur, we need to remove toxins. A detox improves and optimizes the function of your bodily systems.
We’ll also discover how the different tastes or flavors of foods can impact your body through the ancient lens of the Five Phase Theory, the ancient Taoist system of organizing and understanding the ecology of the body.
In this session, you’ll discover:
  • Your gut microbiome, why it’s important, and what kinds of foods support it
  • Food toxins and how you can avoid them
  • How the 5 flavors (bitter, sweet, sour, salty, and pungent) affect different systemic functions in the body, according to traditional medicine
  • How to use an elimination diet to clarify if you are suffering from food allergies
  • Foods that help cleanse the body, such as beets, artichokes, nettle, and dandelion
Kitchen Recipes to Clear Toxins:
  • Traditional Russian Borscht
  • Beet Kvass
  • Nine Herbs Soup With Nettles
  • Artichoke Spinach Dip
  • Fermented Nettle Ginger Beer
  • Dandelion Tea

BONE STOCK, TAO: the 5 elements of FOOD.

The flavour of the HEART is BITTER (greens support, tonify the heart). The YANG CHI is more subdued, in WINTER eat.

KNOWING urself.

The 5 ELEMENT FOOD PERSPECTIVE; endives, mustard greens, arrugula, bruxelles sprouts needed for the HEART element. They drive HEAT back down into the core (kidney=fire, our GATE of LIFE) and OUR DON TI EN? the enrgy of the TIGER.
