Courses / Yin Yang & Four Types - Food as Medicine
What is Net of Knowledge?


A system of regulating health with food rooted in classical Chinese medicine.

Each time you eat, you medicate yourself. The question is whether you get the effect you want. Any food, any diet and any individual could be included in the system to understand the effect of the food on health and diseases.

It could be argued that food is historically the worlds most important medicine, and therefore the most important contributor to chronic health problems and diseases. Let the modern meet the traditional, and the West meet the East in a rational system that could be applied to any culture. ”Yin yang & the Four Types” is the simplest way to understand what to eat, how much and how often for health.

”Any practitioner of medicine must first thoroughly understand the source of disease and know what has been violated, then, use food to treat it, and if food will not cure it, afterwards apply drugs” Sun Simiao (the god of medicinals)

It is time to popularize Chinese medicine. This system is a way of presenting the fundamental theories of the classical Chinese thinking and how to apply them in our daily lives. ”Yin yang & The Four types” is simple enough to understand for laypersons to make Chinese medicine mainstream knowledge. The diagnosis is based on observation and questions and will mainly be explained in terms of qi and yin yang.
