Nutrition for Life

nutritionNutrition is one of the five branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). According to TCM, food is the energy that we take in daily to sustain life. It is an essential part of the healing process, and it energizes the body so it can flourish. Nutrition should also be a source of joy and delight for the whole family!

Along with Chinese herbs, Melissa B. Light offers nutritional therapy and recommendations with regards to foods to eat and foods to avoid for many conditions, including stimulating labor, promoting lactation and gestational diabetes.

We believe in using the best whole ingredients to create the best nutrition, and we love to support local growers and restaurants who are committed to good nutrition. Don’t forget to have fun while taking care of yourself and your family!
