Ginseng *yin yang* food SP QI Xu
So I finished module 1 @ OTCG. yiihaaaaa
We learned about the basics of traditional chinese medicine and already got familiar with some basic pathology.
The fun thing 'bout it is that you get to know your own pathology and I guess I have Spleen Qi deficiëncy: Sp Qi Xu. Spleen has a major role in the digestive system in traditional chinese medicine. It distils Qi from food and drink, provides the basic for the production of blood (xue).
And Spleen sends Qi upwards while stomach sends qi downwards. When Spleen Qi is deficient your energy goes down and you get less energy, heavy legs, diarrhea,...
Ginseng, ginger, cinnamon and liquorice are all herbs with a positive impact on spleen qi.
Liquorice strenghtens Spleen and augments Qi.
Ginseng is a Qi tonic herb which reinforces the spleen.
So since a few days I drink ginseng green tea from the brand Qi and liquorice tea from the brand piramide, both fairtrade. As in fairtrade you know you have the mentioned ingredient in your product and no synthetic flavors and fragrances. Result: symtoms stopped at once.
Anyway, the reason why I want to talk about this ginseng thing is for something so very much kawaii!
Remember the movie pan's labyrinth? Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets? Ow yeah, you know where I'm going to (o; they both have little ginseng roots babies where they need to take care of. They are so kawaii I do want a tamagotchi ginseng root baby as well (o;
Look how adorable they (both) are:
