If you mastered Cooking, Chinese Medicine, and Nutrition, what would you do?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
You are a professionally trained chef.:chef:

You are also a licensed acupuncturist and Doctor of Chinese herbal medicine. You know which foods will heal your patients and where to find them.

And have a master's degree in nutrition.


What would you do with these three skills? What would your perfect career be?

Pitch a cooking show on Public Television or a health-centered cable channel. Oh, and write a book or some magazine articles!

There are some hospitals, clinics and other health care providers who have programs blending Asian medicine and approaches with Western ones. Maybe there are some in your area.

Open a shop that specializes in Chinese herbal tonics (the kind that include a chicken with the herbs), and design and sell menus (with recipies and herbal ingredients) for diets to help particular afflictions

Aloha -- former Maui girl here. How's Oahu?

I am so glad you posted this thread. I have a Masters in biology (plant research), I am a cook, and studied alternative medicine as well. I too have been trying to figure out what the heck to do with everything under my belt.... In addition, I now have six acres of fertile land. Herb farm? Build a greenhouse? Grow Chinese herbs? Restaurant? There are so many possibilities. The problem is finding the niche. But the niche has to fit. I think what we both need to recognize is what it is that we want to do for people. How do we want to please them? Help them enjoy a unique taste of life? Help them feel better?

I have to run, but I truly look forward to continuing this conversation.

Cheers! Stevie

LOL between the three of us we could sure come up with one good show! Or at least a book.... I have been writing on the side, trying to integrate my plant compound research with food....

You'd do very well to be a fengshui master...write a book about balancing the universe via food and health...

All In All

With these three degrees I would like to self-start my career on my own just by starting a organisation called "ALL IN ALL" which has the provision of all these three degrees mentioned.

I'll appoint some trained professionals much like me and have a good relationship with them and make the organisation to do better in the coming days.:talk:
