In Chinese medicine when someone is healthy and happy we say they have good Qi, pronounced Chee, or energy. Qi has many different roles in our health and body. The different roles and abilities of this “magic” word called Qi can be divided into many things. Everything, every organ, element has its own Qi. But for the body and our immune system, these are the most important: 

Wei Qi Ying Qi Yuan Qi 

Wei Qi: is your outer defence mechanism or protective blanket and a large part of our immune system depends on a strong Wei Qi. 

Ying Qi: would be the energy we get from nutrition; needless to say good nutrition is essential for a good immune system. 

Yuan Qi: is a mix of energy that comes from the kidneys which activates the liquids and the essence of our blood; this keeps our healthy oxygenated circulation system running smoothly. 

To maintain a healthy outer protective layer, our blanket, or Wei Qi, we have to look after many areas. For example what we eat and drink helps our Ying Qi, this in turn our defence mechanism. In TCM we like to suggest that foods that are in season should be the first on our shopping list. 

Nothing new, our Wei Qi remains strong if we do some exercise; a nice brisk walk in fresh air is the simplest solution, this is good enough to open up our lungs feed it with oxygen which in turn will liven up a healthy circulation and blood system.
