In Chinese medicine the right diet is considered the first step to health. As it is in the APA system too. This course combines the deep knowledge of TCM as expressed through Neomi David and Western scientific view of nutrition from Li Shamas. It is a practical course that will help you understand how to feed to resolve a variety of problems from anxiety to arthritis, and keep your dogs bouncing with health into old age.
The course is for anyone, from owner to practitioner, who wants to really understand the digestive system on a physiological and energetic level and how to build a good diet that is suited specifically for an individual dog. This is especially important if you have any symptoms of dis-ease, such as itching or anxiety, but it is also an important step in making sure your dogs live a long and healthy life. Even if you already feed raw this course gives you a deeper perspective through the TCM window. You will learn the different energetic properties of each food source and supplement and how to understand what your dog’s body is trying to tell you about the help it needs. It’s not just about protein sources and allergens, it’s about whole health – body, mind and soul.
Suitable for any level of learning from beginner to more advanced. Especially if you are working in the fields of healing or behaviour.
