As the earth element of 5 Seasons Jade Woman, Jade Woman Medicated Diet focuses on using food as medicine to take care of women's health in different seasons and different ages. The course contains 3 parts of training: 

Shi Wu Yao Xing 食物藥性 -  Food is Medicine - Study of Food from the Chinese Medicine Diet Prospective;

The course also trains the practitioner to combine Chinese herbs with food to create an individual dish for each female pattern or disorder.

Medicated Diet is one approach to Chinese Traditional Medicine. From the Chinese traditional medicine perspective, food and medicine share the same source. So, we call it Yao Shi Tong Yuan 藥食同源. Great food is an experience and crystalizing for a person - the tastes, textures, and smells. Jade Goddess medicated food is healing and crystalizing that for a person - the taste, temperature, prosperity, and communicating with different organs.
