Sandra Robertson, like another recent guest of the show (Deirdre Courtney, episode 49), was told by her mentor Lillian Bridges (episode 31) that she had the facial characteristics of a writer and thus should write. And so she did, submitting her first book proposal for her first book to Singing Dragon Press. They liked what they saw and today, Treating Children with Chinese Dietary Therapy is the product of Sandra’s determination to follow her ming, her destiny.
As Sandra and I take a stroll down memory lane (we were once classmates), we also discuss the tenets of nutrition. We raise issues such as the alarming normalization and rampant increase of food sensitivities and allergies, the nutritional intuition of children and why it should be trusted, and far too commonly encountered metabolic disorders such as diabetes.
Sandra advocates eating locally and seasonally, and organically when possible, and demonstrates how doing otherwise can lead to nutritional imbalances. She is replete with practical advice on how to make good health more accessible through simple food choices according to principles of Chinese medicine, the bedrock of her new book, and we talk about how that book came to fruition. We also discuss her mentorship in face reading with Lillian Bridges and how that has impacted her practice and life. Stay tuned to the end of this episode for a special discount offer on our newest online course in Applied Facial Diagnosis with Lillian’s colleague and guest of this podcast, CT Holman (episode 25).
With Sandra's background as a TCM practitioner with certification in face reading, and her love for children and food, her nutritional recipe for a more vibrant life is something we can all benefit from.
