This presentation will further explore the benefits of nutrition in relation to the Chinese Five-Element Theory. Dr. Mikio Sankey will begin his lecture with a brief discussion on the difference between Naturopathic Healing and Traditional Chinese Healing with regard to food. He will then explain the Chinese Five-Element Theory and its relationship to the Hindu chakra system. Each of the five elements within the Chinese framework will be discussed one by one. The five elements are: Fire and the heart system; Earth and the spleen system; Metal and the lung system; Water and the kidney system; and Wood and the liver system.
Dr. Sankey will discuss the emotional and physical attributes of each element and how the properties associated with each of the elements affect the health of the individual. There is a specific biochemical element energetically connected to each of the Five Elements and those energetic qualities will be discussed. Since digestion is such a big concern in the United States, there will also be an in-depth presentation on enzymes, probiotics, acid versus alkaline foods, as well as a list of the various food types associated with each element.
In addition to covering the basic principles of raw foods with life force for higher consciousness, Dr. Sankey will expand on his previous session from last years Virtual Conference. Although there will be plenty of discussion about how foods and other “things” affect the physical system, Dr. Sankey’s focus is on foods for higher consciousness.
