What is Qi Deficiency?

Qi is easiest described as energy.  We create Qi by our intake of food and air.  Our health is dependent on the food we consume, how much we rest and exercise, and the amount of work we do.  This affects the amount of Qi we produce and consume.

Qi is responsible for all the functions in our body such as digestion, temperature regulation, circulation, holding our organs in place, keeping our immune system strong, and providing us with energy.

When our Qi is deficient, it means that we are under functioning in some way. This will show itself in different ways depending on what our individual strengths and weaknesses are congenitally. Below are examples of what the different symptoms look like.

  • frequent colds and flus, especially with slow recovery
