Qi or vital energy is produced from the foods that we take in to our bodies and the air that we breathe. The spleen is the organ of digestion and is responsible for creating Qi in Chinese medicine.
If energy is deficient in the Spleen we see signs such as bloating after eating, heavy weak limbs, tiredness after eating, food intolerances and anxiety/overthinking.
To support and increase Qi we should eat foods that release steadily into our system and avoid spikes in blood sugar.
