Kitchen herbs are foods we incorporate into our diet because they help us stay healthy and feeling good.
Kitchen herbs are common foods you might already eat every day. By adding small quantities on a regular basis you can influence the internal environment of your organ health. And it just makes sense to pack extra nutrients into a meal.
Here’s a partial list of kitchen herbs. Your licensed acupuncturist can customize a dietary plan based on Chinese dietetics, which foods to use or avoid, and give you tips on the best cooking method for your overall health.
