This week, on What's the Juice, I'm joined by Dr. Kara of Aculand Acupuncture for a very timely episode all about the gut, digestion, dampness, and gut dysbiosis — exactly the topics we need to focus on right now. We also give a juicy introduction to the Qi. Qi is the term used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to describe your body’s vital life energy. It's necessary for all life processes: proper organ function, circulation of blood, metabolism of body fluid, warming the body, defending against illness, and transforming food into energy. This episode specifically covers liver Qi stagnation. What lifestyle choices are we making that disrupt our live Qi? What are the most common symptoms? What herbs have been shown to be beneficial?
We also cover several self acupuncture points that help us regenerate our Qi, plus tips on keeping our digestive fires going strong.
This is a concentrated episode with a lot of useful information packed into a nerdy conversation. I hope you love it!
