  • Magnesium, an important mineral

    Posted on 13 July 2012 by Wim

    Magnesium is a mineral that exists everywhere in nature in different compounds. The human body contains about 28 grams of magnesium, from which half is found in the bones. Magnesium plays a key role in our energy system: it is vital for over 350 enzymatic processes in our body. The body is not able to hold magnesium. Just like oxygen and water, continuous addition of this mineral is needed. If your body gets too much  magnesium it is immediately excreted. 30 to 50 % of western people (some say 80-90%), however, have a magnesium deficiency. Read More

  • Milan's (Non-)Cooking Methods and Recipes

    Posted on 18 June 2012 by Wim

    Given the fact that for thousands of years, the ancient Chinese have been considering cooking not as a destruction of food, but rather consider it as energizing the food, I hereby would like to create awareness for thermally warm food as a source of strength. Even if you want to have raw food and not cook your food, I recommend in certain cases to warm up the food in a dehydrator to the maximum suitable temperature for raw of 42 degrees Celsius, over a longer period and to eat it at this warm temperature.

  • Milan's RAW TCM: Chinese nutrition and raw food (Part 2)

    Posted on 18 June 2012 by Wim

    Why are heat and cold, according to TCM, important factors for our health

    From the perspective of TCM fresh food is ideal for a good intestinal environment, a healthy liver and healthy blood, and a good strong "stomach fire". But if you're not careful, and you eat only 'thermally cooling' fresh food (like avocado, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, bananas, mung bean sprouts and algae), you may cause damage to the Yang and/or an energetic damage to the spleen. The Asians then speak of a spleen-qi-weakness, a spleen-yin-deficiency or spleen-yang-vacuity. Read More
