about yang sheng lifestyle design
Traditional Chinese Medicine theory formed around the reverence for the natural world and the wish to live in harmony with the natural rhythms of life. When we don’t act in harmony with nature we begin to experience ill health and disease.
Rather than a series of good vs bad choices to make to suit everyone, lifestyle and diet advice according to the principles of Yang Sheng aim to find the optimal habits for the individual person in the context of; age, state of wellbeing, the season of the year, the local climate and atmospheric conditions where you live.
Advice is given on the best habits to have according to season such as waking earlier and sleeping later in the summer where we can be more active and eat foods which are more cool in nature such as fruits, vegetables and salads. Conversely in winter it is advised to rest and sleep for longer, be less active and to eat warming foods such as soups and stews.
