Damp Diet

Do you feel like you’re trudging through the mud with a big “out of order” sign on your back?

We get it. You’re here because you’ve landed in one of the trickiest health patterns in Traditional Chinese Medicine, known as Dampness.

Damp can show up as a heavy, tired, sluggish feeling. You may have a noticeable lack of appetite, carry extra weight you can’t seem to lose, or have candida or edema. Even a glass of water might make you feel bloated. You might get colds that trail off into lingering sinus congestion and excess mucus.

TCM describes Dampness as an accumulation of sludge and toxins. Damp is a combo platter of a few health patterns involving all your major organ systems. It’s hard to even know where to start with such a challenging mashup.

With Dampness, everything is heavy and stuck and wants to stay that way. If you’ve noticed an inner resistance to movement and change, well, that’s Damp being the boss of you.

You may benefit from the Damp Diet if you experience one or more of the following:

Lack of appetite
Trouble losing weight

Sinus congestion
Foggy brain
Negative self talk
Lack of motivation

Yes, Dampness is complex. But we’ll get you set up with the tools you need to figure out what works for your body.

Here’s the key to the whole shebang: we’re asking you to put YOU first. Yes, it’s a risk and it’ll probably feel uncomfortable, but we believe you’re up for it.
