Dietetics Soups

11 CEUs

We begin our dietetics culinary adventure in the office of Prof. Jeffrey Pang, L.Ac. For generations, the Pang family has carried on the traditional Chinese medicine tradition of healing with cooking. This multimedia experience is in two parts. First, there is a video where Prof. Pang introduces us to the ingredients of two healing soups. Next, we journey into the kitchen and prepare both. One of the tasty soups is for strengthening and nourishing and the other flavorful soup is for clearing heat and toxins. Written materials support the video to help in recreating these dishes for improved health and vitality in your own kitchen.

Two soups are presented, Ba Wang Hua soup and Shan Yao soup. The Ba Wang Hua soup focuses on clearing heat & toxins, stopping coughing, and dissolving hot phlegm. The Shan Yao soup tonifies the spleen qi and benefits digestion. Additional materials cover different types of tea and their medicinal benefits, phytoestrogens, and special monographs of individual foods. Download the course materials, complete the online quiz, and receive a certificate of completion for acupuncture continuing education credit.
