It's relatively short (74 pages of info), and there are introduction chapter(s) on the basics of TCM patterns and organ imbalances and then finally various tables and lists of foods which is what I found most useful as reference.
I've used it to tweak diets by adding certain foods to a weekly menu, or recommended adding certain foods (or avoiding them) to patients.
It could have been much longer by giving more information about each type of food, but there are other books that can do this. I've found it most useful as a simple and quick reference book.
If you are a student of any 5 element theory, feng shui, qigong or food properties, this book is for you.

A great resource for the energetics of foods. I use this manual in conjunction with weekly acupuncture treatment to take a holistic approach to wellness.Published 3 months ago by angelaesque
