Have you heard of food therapy?
Food therapy is a fantastic concept.
Imagine yourself, feeding your pet, and knowing you are making the right choices for your pet’s body type.
And at the same time, you know that everything you feed your pet provides nutrients and nourishes your pet’s subtle energy.
Food is Medicine
PET | TAO, a premium holistic pet food, takes healthy to a new level with food therapy products!
For example, PET | TAO formulas combine two unique schools of thought:
- Eastern Food Therapy

PET | TAO combines the best of both worlds in food therapy products to:
- Nurture your pet’s energetic balance
- Provide nutritionally competent formulas
PET | TAO is clean, natural food helping pets attain and maintain energetic harmony.
The PET | TAO Story
After years of clinical practice, the two vets made a disturbing discovery.
Some patients had no treatments for their ailments!
The doctors pursued alternative therapies to heal their patients.
The quest led the vets to the Chi Institute, the nation’s leading school of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine.
Soon after, Drs. Smith and Damron created PET | TAO.
PET | TAO applies ancient principles of Eastern Food Therapy to create and maintain energetic balance.
Energetic balance keeps your pets healthy.
Formulated by experienced veterinarians, PET | TAO is the perfect balance of Eastern knowledge and Western Science.
Food therapy with PET | TAO premium pet food utilizes:
Thousands of years of Eastern knowledge. Eastern philosophy classifies food by its energetic effect on the body.
Western nutritional science. Western nutrition classifies food by proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals.
A Body Out of Balance is Prone to Illness
PET | TAO applies food therapy to contrast and balances your pet’s own energetic qualities, helping to heal your pet with real food.
Yin deficiency leads to:
- Weight loss

Principles of Eastern Food Therapy: A Quick Guide
PET | TAO chooses each ingredient according to the Eastern food principles of energetics, balance, and the food’s effect on the body.
Balance: Yin-Yang Theory
According to the Yin-Yang theory, each naturally occurring event has equal and opposite forces in nature (weak/strong, dry/moist).
And, opposite forces are in constant motion, conflict, and struggle.
In foods, Yin-Yang refers to warming or cooling.
Similarly, in pets, Yin-Yang refers to weak vs. strong or dry vs. moist.
Effect on the Body: The Five Elements Theory
The Five Element Theory revolves around the five major organs:
Consuming specific foods improves the functioning of one or more of the major organs.
For example, a dog with liver disease should eat liver to enhance the function and performance of its own liver.
Food Therapy Energetics: Warming, Cooling, Neutral
Eastern Food Therapy is not concerned with calories.
Instead, food therapy analyzes each food’s energetic quality, or essence.
All naturally occurring food (plants, meats, nuts, and fruits) has an innate energetic quality:
Energetic quality has nothing to do with temperature but signifies how food affects physiology and metabolism after consumption.
You can see food energetics’ predictable effects in our everyday diets.
For instance, a habanero pepper heats your body, gets your blood pumping, and makes you sweat.
A banana cools the body and regulates heat.
