Ayurveda and TCM both are broad hollistic healthcare approaches. I am curious about their dietary guidelines. They seem to be both different and similar. Has anyone experience regarding their effectiveness reducing health issues? Is one to be preferred over the other?

Hi Cato,

I always found inspiration in Ayurveda and TCM, mainly Ayurveda as this was always present in my research on yoga. I think it can be very helpful to dive into some books if you want to learn about your body and diet in a way helpful for your practice. Im not in any way against western scientific views as a scientist myself, but regarding practical understanding of myself I found ayurveda and tcm way more helpful to find a balanced diet and body as this is a very individual thing.

I found both schools to be similar but ayurveda fits better into indian yogic philosophy whereas TCM is more a Qi Gong thing (different elements and other vocabulary).

Thanks for your thoughts, lightandlove. I dived into an ayurveda book parvati9 from the forum has recommended. Today I got an appointment with an ayurveda practitioner and found myself understood since we had time and covered different health aspects and issues from my medical history. I think I will start and gradually change my diet respecting aryuvedic principles and see what else might become helpful or necessary.

TCM still holds many interesting aspects as well, but Aryuveda is my first step for now since I feel more drawn to it. I guess I will read some more books on the matter to get a general map.
