An appropriate and balanced diet is essential for good health. However, in the developed world, many people's ideas of a good diet are influenced by fads, misinformation, and misconceptions. Chinese medicine places a strong emphasis on proper eating and recognizes that different people have different dietary needs. The content and structure of a person's diet can be adjusted to help correct imbalances in their health. In general, the goal of diet therapy is to move from a diet that is suitable for addressing a specific imbalance to a balanced diet that is appropriate for the individual's constitution. This may include a diet that focuses on strengthening the Spleen and Stomach, which are essential for maintaining overall health and well-being. Maintaining a healthy Spleen and Stomach is important for the treatment and management of various internal disorders.
