Fohow Health Care Theories

By inheriting the health care culture of Traditional Chinese Medicine and in many years of practice, Fohow Group developed three major health care theories based on different health care approaches and methods:

  • Mental Health Care: To maintain health by means of mental regulation;

  • Behavioural Health Care: To maintain health by means of purposeful behaviours;

  • Dietary Health Care: To maintain health by means of dietary regulation. Dietary health care focuses on “homology of medicine and food”, which emphasises natural and safe medicinal materials as well as reasonable combination of food materials.

Fohow’s dietary health care theory consists of three series: “Regulating”, “Clearing” and “Supplementing”.

  • Regulating: Comprehensively regulate the balance of Yin & Yang and the regularity of the Five Elements based on TCM theories. Keep harmony between them. The purpose of regulating is to build up energy and spirit.

  • Clearing: Clearing away excessive things such as: heat, toxicity, excessive blood fat, thrombus, and so on. The purpose of clearing is to eliminate the factors that have adverse impact on energy and spirit.

  • Supplementing: Supplementing insufficient things. To supplement mineral substances needed by human body such as calcium and zinc, to supplement various nourishments such as protein, amino acid and vitamins, and to tonify elements in TCM sense, such as blood, lung, kidney, energy and spirit.
