Feeling Cold and Breathless Easily? 3 Ways to Increase your Qi (Chi) Power to Fight Colds in TCM

Chi (Qi) energy is basically a person's life force. It is for this reason that it also ultimately determines one's daily energy levels. Therefore, the logical route to take for any person who suffers from extreme tiredness, and even shield oneself from common diseases like colds, is to enhance this key life force. What's good is that there are Chinese techniques, which have been proven to do just that.

To nourish your inner Chi, consider the following methods:

1.) Natural Methods - your Chi levels can be enhanced through natural means, which also boosts your overall energy levels. For instance, deep breathing, because of the potent way with which it can significantly increase the amount of oxygen you take in, can go a long way in raising your Chi levels. Besides this, you should also consider wearing bright colors more, listen to lively music that serve to make your Chi flow more smoothly, and placing beautiful flower arrangements in rooms where you spend most of the day, as these have been proven to regulate stress.

Certain foods have been shown to raise Chi levels naturally such as brown rice, green beans, ginseng, carrots, string beans, yams, lamb, lotus seed, to name a few. Basically, a balanced diet is the key. Avoiding a sedentary life and excessive television, as well as staying for long periods among large crowds could likewise prevent your Chi levels from decreasing further.

2.) Food energy - food energy is more prevalent in Chinese cuisine, as the Chinese consider any food that one takes in as a form of medicine that should always be able to improve one's general well-being. The uniquely Chinese concept of Yin and Yang is also an essential aspect of food energy. It is for this reason that balance plays a major role in it

For instance, Yang foods are believed to promote body heat and impart more energy, while Yin food counteracts these effects. The color of the food, based on this philosophy, also determines its effects on the body. The manner in which you cook your food also plays a significant role in food energy. The key is to find the right balance in what you take in and how you cook food, based on the said concepts.

3.) Exercises - stimulation of Chi levels also promotes the concept of balanced exercise routines. This means that it is important for you to mind the type of exercise that you are doing, for poorly-executed exercise routines only actually weaken your body's Chi reserves. Examples of exercises that not only promotes physical well-being but boosts Chi levels as well are yoga. Chinese martial arts like Kung Fu, Qigong, Tai Chi, and Aikido. All of the said martial arts, because of their focus on being in harmony with your body, greatly stimulate the flow of Chi and develops your mind, body, and spirit as a whole.
