NutriPlex Formulas: Guide for Acupuncturists

Chinese Herbal Medicine

What do NutriPlex Formulas and Traditional Chinese Medicine Have in Common?

Traditional Chinese Medicine and NutriPlex Formulas share a fundamental core belief: Food is Medicine.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, foods are seen as forces that ultimately work to either heal the body or create imbalances within it — leading to sickness.

The same belief is espoused by the NutriPlex Formulas’ Whole Food Philosophy:

All NutriPlex Formulas’ products are created with 100% whole food ingredients, formulated to work within body systems, and with the body’s natural healing mechanisms, to restore balance.

He who takes medicine and neglects to diet wastes the skill of his doctors. — Chinese Proverb
