A podcast by Leah from The Centre of Ki

Episode 12: Food Energetics and the Five Elements with Kimberly Ashton - Qi Food Therapy

In this episode, I interview Kimberly Ashton, a holistic health coach who specialises in food therapy and food energetics. Kimberly launched her business Qi Food Therapy in 2020 after returning from 16 years in China where she co-owned China's first health food store and teaching kitchen. She has taught food energetics and food therapy nutrition at yoga teacher trainings and retreats in Thailand, China and Japan. In this interview, Kimberly shares:

  • how she became a wellness coach and began specialising in food therapy

  • what Qi (or chi, ki, prana) is and why it's important when it comes to food, eating and health

  • an overview of the Five Elements in Traditional Chinese Medicine and how we can use them no matter where in the world we live

  • one food she can't live without

  • how she has improved her own wellness to get more out of life.

Kimberly has a number of e-books and online courses available. You can take a look at them on her website: You can also book Kimberly for one-on-one coaching sessions here: If you have any questions about the topics covered in this podcast, or want to get in touch, please contact me at or visit The Wellbeing Room Podcast Facebook page:
