Chinese Kitchen Medicine

In Chinese families the bastion of traditional wisdom – Grandma - often comes to the rescue when a family member is ill. Why does drinking lovingly-prepared soupy remedies make people feel better? What are the different herbs used and how do we know they work? This event reveals how Chinese kitchen medicine works and offers some samples of Asian wisdom.

What are the different herbs used and how do we know they work? This event reveals how Chinese kitchen medicine works and offers some samples of Asian wisdom.

Speakers include:
• Dr Vivienne Lo specialises in the history of Chinese medical theory and practice. She will lead a discussion on the power of everyday knowledge as opposed to that held by the medical authorities.

• Edward Eisler, founded of Jing Tea has devoted most of his life to tea and today he ranks as one of the world's great tea-ologists and is consultant to organisations including, Harrods, Coutts Bank and Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck restaurant. He will discuss importance of tea in Chinese culture as well as the health benefits of various teas sourced from different regions of China.

This free event at the Dana Centre in London – the Science Museum’s adults-only café-bar to discuss contemporary health, science, medicine and technology – will bring together leading Chinese medicinal practitioners and patients to examine some of the identity issues this transition involves.

Chinese Kitchen Medicine has been developed by the Dana Centre in consultation with members of London's Chinese community for the London Chinese Community. It is part of the Dana Centre’s mission create events led by the audience. They will reveal how the ancient Chinese body of wisdom has adapted to London life.
