With Acupuncturist, Natural Medicine Practitioner & Apitherapist
Tamara Wolfson, LAc
A 7-module On-demand Video Training

Improve your gut health and overall wellbeing, strengthen your immune system, promote longevity, and heal health issues with the right flavors, foods, and herbs for each season.

Create your “ideal meal” based on your unique constitution and health concerns — as well as dozens of flavorful, healthful recipes to help you thrive.

It wasn’t so long ago that we lived our lives according to the seasons...

During winter’s crisp, short days, we retreated indoors, enjoyed a slower pace, and ate squash, root vegetables, and soup stocks rich in nutrients from animal bones.

We allowed how we lived, ate, and cared for our bodies to flow with the rhythms of nature.

Of course, most of us today — with our busy modern lives — don’t always have the luxury of aligning our days with nature’s changing faces.

Yet, there’s one important way you can follow her cues — to boost your overall health, help heal physical and emotional imbalances and disease, promote greater longevity, and even bring greater enjoyment and satisfaction to how you nourish your body...

You can learn to prepare and eat the foods that are best for you — and your body’s organ systems — in each season.

You may already tailor your meals to your dietary and health requirements, but you’re missing out on important nutrients and energies when you don’t consume the proper flavors and types of food your organ systems need to thrive at certain times of the year.

For example, in winter, our bodies need bitter-flavored foods, such as arugula, dandelion, rhubarb, and leafy green vegetables to help us keep heat in our core, dry dampness, and stimulate digestion. The right amount of this flavor will energetically nourish the heart; and an excess of this flavor is actually unhealthy for the bones.

This centuries-old way of approaching food and nourishment invites us to view food through the lens of Chinese medicine, which considers how our contact with elemental forces (including the energetic properties of food) can heal us, helping us to bring our digestive system, and thus our health, into balance.

Our digestive health, supported by our gut’s microbiome — a complex mini-ecosystem of bacteria — holds the key to our overall health, wellbeing, and longevity. In fact, current medical research reveals that as much as 50% of diseases are related to poor or improper diet.

Discover How Particular Flavors Activate Certain Energetics in Your Body

In Kitchen Medicine, you’ll discover which foods are best for you and your health each season, including how the different flavors of foods (sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and pungent) impact your body.

In Five Phase Theory, an ancient Taoist system of organizing and understanding the ecology of the body, balanced eating includes considering how particular flavors effect various tissues and organ function.

Viewing your daily and seasonal menus through this lens gives you access to delicious and enjoyable meals that will not only nourish your entire system (giving special attention to particular organs at the time of year they need it), but can also help you improve your digestion and optimize your health — even help heal health conditions.

In this new 7-module program, you’ll discover which foods can help you to regulate your blood sugar and strengthen your blood, so you have more energy and stamina.

You’ll learn which foods and herbs can best help cleanse your system — and when’s the best time to do a “cleanse.”

You’ll learn how to create fermented foods successfully and safely, so you can add this natural probiotic to your daily menus.

AND you’ll discover how to sprout, seeds, nuts, grains, and beans — which unlocks beneficial enzymes and makes them easier to digest — helping cut down on inflammation in the body.

You’ll find out how to make a bone stock customized with various medicinal ingredients specific to your dietary and health needs. A hearty bone stock soup can help improve skin conditions, diabetes, leaky gut, osteoporosis, arthritis, allergies, autoimmune diseases, and digestive issues.

You’ll even discover your “ideal meal,” based on your unique constitutional imbalances, dietary requirements, and health concerns.

AND you’ll receive dozens of healthy, healing recipes to try out now and in the seasons to come — from Fermented Turmeric Ginger Beer to Chia Pudding with Vanilla & Cardamom to Traditional Mushroom Kombucha plus Basic Sauerkraut and Traditional Russian Borscht.

Tamara has shared her teachings at the San Francisco Culinary Academy, with Whole Foods Market, and through the University of San Francisco General Hospital’s Cancer Awareness, Resources and Education Program, and dozens of other institutions.

Module 1: Food as Medicine
Eating for Wellness, Connection & Joy (February 14)

The most powerful place to start a journey to optimal wellbeing and healing is in the kitchen, viewing food as medicine. We’ll begin by discovering how to eat to nourish your gut microbiome — the mini-ecosystem of your digestive tract where the key to your health begins.

We’ll learn about foods and herbs that can help you cleanse your system. At the beginning of most natural medicine protocols, there’s a general consensus that before healing can occur, we need to remove toxins. A detox improves and optimizes the function of your bodily systems.

We’ll also discover how the different tastes or flavors of foods can impact your body through the ancient lens of the Five Phase Theory, the ancient Taoist system of organizing and understanding the ecology of the body.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • Your gut microbiome, why it’s important, and what kinds of foods support it
  • Food toxins and how you can avoid them
  • How the 5 flavors (bitter, sweet, sour, salty, and pungent) affect different systemic functions in the body, according to traditional medicine
  • How to use an elimination diet to clarify if you are suffering from food allergies
  • Foods that help cleanse the body, such as beets, artichokes, nettle, and dandelion

Kitchen Recipes to Clear Toxins:

  • Traditional Russian Borscht
  • Beet Kvass
  • Nine Herbs Soup With Nettles
  • Artichoke Spinach Dip
  • Fermented Nettle Ginger Beer
  • Dandelion Tea

Module 2: The Spring Diet
Foods That Move & Activate the Body (February 21)

In spring, your body’s energy is waking up and renewing itself, after winter’s time of contemplation and rest. It’s when we often began to clean our house to create a fresh space for something new to happen. This is also the case with our body — spring foods are geared toward supporting liver health and refreshing the body.

During this session, you’ll discover:

  • Healing green foods and how to sprout seeds, nuts, grains, and beans
  • What foods support your liver and help it to filter toxins out of your blood
  • How intermittent fasting can help your digestion reset
  • An introduction to the healing properties of mushrooms and how you can use them simply and easily in your kitchen

Kitchen Recipes to Support Liver Health & Detox:

  • Sprouted Almond & Nut Milk With Extracted Mushrooms
  • Sprouted Mung Bean Salad With Ginger Lemon Dressing
  • Rejuvelac & Fermented Nut Cheese
  • Basic Green Blender Drink

Module 3: The Summer Diet

The healing foods of summer remind us of our heart opening to the world. Food and herb gardens are stunningly beautiful, full of color and amazing fragrances. It’s a time for being open, as we witness the season’s energetic movements, reaching out as succulent, ripe fruit — a perfect time to discover the joys of eating more raw foods.

During this session, you’ll discover:

  • Which foods are rich in which enzymes, and how these nutrients are like fire for your digestive system

  • Lemon Balm & Goji Berry Sun Tea

Module 4: The Late Summer Diet
Foods to Nourish Digestion (March 7)

In Chinese medicine, late summer is associated with the Earth element and with digestion itself. The taste associated with the season is sweet; however, this does not refer to our modern idea of refined sugar. In fact, in this module, you’ll learn how sugar is destructive to digestion and significantly sabotages your overall health and wellbeing.

In this session, you’ll discover;

  • How the flavor “sweet” nourishes and lubricates the body AND neutralizes the toxic effects of other foods
  • The most effective herbal support tools for regulating blood sugar
  • The role grains, glutens, and lectins play in our diets
  • The relationship between the Earth element and blood building in Chinese medicine
  • Foods that strengthen blood, thereby increasing energy and stamina

Kitchen Recipes for Late Summer:

  • Grapefruit Salad With Avocado & Dried Cherries
  • Sprouted Quinoa & Broccoli Salad
  • Raw Kale Salad
  • Bee Pollen Wild Fermented Soda

Module 5: The Autumn Diet
Fermentations (March 14)

In fall, we increase our consumption of sour foods to help us align with the energy of condensation within. This helps tighten up our bodies’ pores and tissues in preparation for the cold to come.

Fermented food satisfies this fundamental nutritional need this time of year as a traditional way to access “sour.” It’s been a dietary aid throughout all of human history, and has just regained popularity again over the past decade or so.

In this session, we’ll renew our relationship with the fabulous world of fermentations and experience the delights of eating sour foods.

During this session, you’ll discover:

  • Tools and guidelines to make your own fermentations successfully
  • The history and traditions around fermented foods and how they feed your gut’s microbiome and support its health

Winter is when eating foods that are warming, deeply nutritious, and tonifying are vital for maintaining health and wellness.

We’ll also explore the Five Phase theory in which winter is connected to Water, including an overview of water’s healing properties.

During this session, you’ll discover:

  • How important winter foods and herbs are in supporting your health through the cold months
  • Herbal traditions that use bones and gelatin to deeply replenish the body and how to work with these ingredients in the kitchen

Working With the 5 Flavors (March 28)

Top 10 Adaptogenic Herbs for Longevity
Audio Teaching From Tamara Wolfson

One of our most sophisticated herbal medicine systems is that of Chinese medicine. In describing herbs that can be used to enhance longevity, the classical texts of China and the teachings of the Taoists inevitably lead us back to three concepts: How do we increase our Qi (or energy), Jing (or DNA), and Shen (our spirit to create long life)? In this teaching, Tamara investigates those questions and the herbs that nourish us.

About Tamara Wolfson

Tamara Wolfson graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. in research psychology and completed a second major in mental health psychology at Southern Connecticut State University. She attended Tristate Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a 3-year Chinese medical institute in New York City and received her first diploma in acupuncture. She obtained her second degree, an M.S. in Oriental Medicine after attending a 4-year program at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco. Her osteopathic training has been an integration of two Japanese based neuromuscular reeducation systems, Sotai-ho and Anma, and the powerful Chinese system of Tui-na.

During Tamara’s oriental medical training, she studied healing foods from an energetic perspective with a highly respected teacher, Jeffery Yuen, who is the 88th generation lineage holder of the Jade Purity school of Taoism. Master Yuen discussed defining and categorizing food as a healing tool much the same way we Chinese practitioners categorize and treat with Chinese herbs. She found this approach to food to be absolutely fascinating and over the past two decades has devoted herself to understanding how we heal through food. She has incorporated recipes and lifestyle suggestions into her healing work to support eating the best foods possible according to seasonal changes and constitutional health.

Tamara has brought this information to the San Francisco Culinary Academy where she taught vegetarian cooking classes in addition to places like Whole Foods Market, Rainbow Grocery, and Good Earth Natural Foods. In addition, she has taught for San Francisco State University’s department of continuing education at the Embarcadero Farmer’s Market and for University of San Francisco General Hospital’s Cancer Awareness, Resources, and Education Program. She was also an instructor for over a decade at John F. Kennedy University where she taught introduction to Asian Healing Modalities, Food Politics, and Seasonal Healing Food classes.
