Healthy HK．Chinese Herbs
Dietary therapy of Chinese Herbs for recuperation
We have this idea because one of our classmates worked as an intern for Healthy Hong Kong. She has learned a lot about traditional Chinese medicine and found that it is beneficial to people. Moreover, our team members are girls who are suffering from muscle cramps. We believe that Chinese medicine can regulate our bodies and relieve problems of cramps. We are all interested in Chinese medicine so we have decided that it should be the topic of the CIP project.
In addition, many young people suffer from different kinds of pains skin due to the humid weather in Hong Kong. Moreover, many young people like staying up till very late. In this project, we recommend some dietary therapy of Chinese medicine for recuperation.
The key concept behind Chinese medicine is that there is correspondence between human and the natural environment. We have to adapt to the nature. Food therapy can help to adjust human’s internal biological functions with the characteristics of different kinds of food.
We identified two key areas of content to support our narratives: Basic ideology of wellbeing of human body and the concept of “Food Therapy” of Chinese Medicine; As well as the application related to “Food Therapy” by a Chinese Medicine Clinic. As such, we approached Dr. Chan, one of the Chinese Medicine practitioners at Healthy Hong Kong. And Ms. Michelle, General Secretary of Healthy Hong Kong.
