WEBINAR: Let Food be thy Medicine and Medicine be thy Food

WEBINAR: Let Food be thy Medicine and Medicine be thy Food - A look at how 5 element theory dictates our pets' inherent behavior and personality and how proper feeding can help support their constitution


DATE: Wednesday September 30th, 2020

TIME: 10:00am - 11:30am Pacific Daylight Time


Join us for a two-part series on 5 element theory and learning how to recognize the constitutional element of your dog, and how to recognize when your dog is "in balance" and what to do if your dog is "out of balance."  We will also look at basic Yin-Yang theory and what it means to be "in balance" according to Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) principles. 

The second part of this series focuses on what foods should be fed to feed the constitutional element of your dog, and how to tailor the food ingredients for the current season.  We will also look at the roll food has in helping dogs with certain diseases, and how to tailor the food for certain behavioral issues.
