‘Qi’, which is commonly translated to as energy, is an important element for a person to be healthy. Qi deficiency simply means that the immune system is not performing at its peak and hence, the person can easily catch a flu or cold especially when the weather changes or eating food that reduces qi.
Click here to find out what are the foods that are suitable for you.
Besides eating the foods listed in above link, you should avoid eating the following foods as they will reduce the ‘Qi’ in your body:
- Foods that are cold in thermal nature like watermelon, bitter gourd, cucumber.
- Icy water or food taken out from the fridge and eat immediately.
- Raw food.
Remember to keep warm at all times especially if you are in a colder place. It is useful to wear more layer of clothes because this will help your body to retain the qi rather than using it to keep you warmer.
Keep yourself active and go for walking or slow jog as this will help to build up your qi and eventually you will feel warmer after the exercises.
