What is qi?
Qi (also known as chi) is translates as “vital life force.” According to Classical Chinese Philosophy, Qi is the force that makes up and binds together all things in the universe.
There are four types of Qi within the human body:
- Parental Qi: Our parental or yuan qi is the qi that is inherited from our parents at conception. After conception occurs, parental qi is stored in the kidneys.
- Pectoral Qi: Pectoral or Zong Qi is Qi that is produced by breathing. It is stored in the chest area.
- Nutritional Qi: Nutritional or Ying Qi is derived from eating foods and is responsible for the circulation nutrition throughout the body.
- Defensive Qi: Defensive or Wei is responsible for protecting the body from illnesses. It is the yang of nutritional Qi, meaning that it is also derived from eating foods, but serves a different purpose.
If there is an imbalance of Qi in our body, illness can arise, depending on whether there is a deficiency or excess of Qi. Here at Qi Traditions, we honor the traditions of the past with medicinal mushrooms that help to cultivate and nourish a strong life force. With our highly-optimized mushrooms, we seek to resolve disharmonies in the body and get back into the flow of Qi.
