Feeling lethargic? Do you have a decreased appetite, shortness of breath, weakness, and cold hands or feet? Are you sick a lot with a cold or the flu? You might have a Qi Deficiency, which can be confirmed and treated by an acupuncturist. 

Adjusting your diet can have some positive impact on rebalancing Qi. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is recommended that people with a Qi Deficiency take 1/2 of their calories from grains and beans, 1/3 from cooked vegetables, 15% from meat (2-3 ounces per serving), and 5% from dairy. Garlic, leeks, ginger, string beans, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, carrots, and squash are good foods to eat, while raw veggies, fruits, and juice in excess.
