Can be difficult

If you are not familiar with Chinese terminology and healing concepts this is probably not the book for you. Otherwise, it has a lot of interesting ideas.

Great Foundational Knowledge

This book contains so much valuable foundational information about the Traditional Chinese Medicine eating philosophies, as well as lots of great recipes for congee. A must have for any student studying TCM, but also great for anyone enrolled in an acupuncture regimen and following the traditional eating principals!

Open with a professional bc it's too complicated to understand for me

Frustrating. I was told to get this book from my doctor.... and I already want to throw this book. Not good for Someone who is beginning to learn nutrition ... my doctor is going to need to dumb this book down for me.
