Stagnant Qi treatment.
by: Anonymous

Thank you for your comments Jonathan. I have been having weekly acupuncture treatments for the past eight weeks or so weeks. I have had benefit in that I can sometimes delay my scheduled snacks/meals by an hour or so. In addition, I have had other benefits that I didn't expect to get such as more energy, less stuffy at night and more.
I have ordered your book and have also signed up for Tai Chi classes - anything to help with stagnant Qi. My TCM doctor has also given me a herbal tea. In addition, I now drink green tea. If you can suggest anything else I'd be grateful?

Qi Stagnation can be both cause and effect
by: Jonathan

Stagnant Qi produces many kinds of symptom, and feeling weak unless you eat often is sometimes one of them.

However, not eating enough, or being unable to 'process' food eaten so that enough Blood is formed, can also be a cause of Qi Stagnation.

If you are hypothyroid, your whole system slows down and this may be the cause of your weakness, not necessarily primarily due to Qi Stagnation, but producing Qi Stagnation as a secondary effect.

Imagine a river which, because of drought, has run dry. Everyone who uses the river will be frustrated including fishermen, sailors and fish: hence Qi stagnation. But equally, even if there's enough water, too many people using the river at one time will make it impossible to navigate, again causing Qi stagnation.

I presume your acupuncturist has decided that your primary problem at present is the Qi Stagnation, and will do his/her best to ease that, then moving on to treating the blood deficiency and digestion.

Light-headed and irritable from Qi Stagnation?
by: Jonathan

Qi stagnation can be both cause and effect of other conditions ('syndromes' in Chinese medicine).

Possibly a period of intense stress was the cause of Nina's problems, but if I had to eat every two hours or else become light-headed and irritable, I might get stressed and develop symptoms of Qi Stagnation.

So probably Nina's acupuncturist is trying to clear her Qi Stagnation first before proceeding to deeper syndromes.
