About Joanne Faulkner

Joanne, with her unique and extensive understanding of Chinese Medicine, makes the ancient system of Yin Yang with connected flavours, seasons, emotions and organs seem simple. Many systems borrow from this tradition; with Joanne you understand the foundation.

“On a personal note, I wanted to write a book about emotional, physical and spiritual love. Over six years, it has been, a true labour of love to gather the recipes, paintings and poetry to put together in a book, that I could hold in my hand and would make my heart sing. The writing of the Good Food: Better Sex has enhanced my experience of true love and ecstasy in ways I did not expect. I wish that this book loves you in the same way it has loved and healed me.”

“In my life, perhaps like you, I have experienced heartbreak, panic attacks, sexual abuse, low libido, hormonal spins and hot flushes of peri-menopause but I am alive and very well without medication or trips to the doctor. Now in my 50s, I have yet to enter menopause and my sexual energy is better than ever. I put it down to using Food As Medicine and the Five Elements System of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It’s simple and I share here how to use it every day to stay healthy and in love.”

What people are saying about her books:
