Our Chinese Nutrition Program (AGTCM Diploma)

As Chinese doctor Sun Si Miao (590 – 682 BC) said, “First, modify the patient’s diet and lifestyle and only then, if these do not effect a cure, treat with medicinals and acupuncture.”
Food has a massive influence on your body, or in the West, on your metabolism, in China, on the relationship between yin and yang. The fast pace of our globalized world has significantly transformed our dietary habits. We often lack the feeling capacity to listen to our body and to know what really supports it.
In our AGTCM diploma program, you learn how to use the sound foundations of Chinese nutrition on yourself and others. More than 2,000 years old, this body of knowledge organizes food according to taste, temperature behavior, thermal, and relatedness by organ or meridian. This allows you to adjust and personalize food intake according to symptoms, constitution, or season and gives you an optimal tool for nutritional counseling in your own practice.
Join us on a culinary adventure through the seasons of the year and gain theoretical and practical understanding of this body of knowledge.

Program objectives:
-Chinese nutrition basics and application (history, body clock, quality, tastes, temperature, thermal)
-Learn various methods of preparation and their effects (fermentation, stewing, etc.)
-Cooking with the annual cycle – consciously experience each season and the cosmological phases between them (土用)with seasonal foods
-Foods and techniques regarding constitution
-Diagnosis using dietary records, blood values, and anamnesis
-Diagnosis of substance (blood, yin, etc.) and their imbalances
-Treatment competence in changing diet
-Nutrition in particular stages of life
-Nutrition concepts for counseling with Western illnesses (obesity, allergies, skin diseases)
