About Cait's contribution
by: Jonathan Clogstoun-Willmott

Thank you Cait for your contribution.

Qi stagnation can be powerful, and most of us get better at controlling it as we leave childhood, (think of a child's tantrums!) but sometimes it still trips us up.

As it tries to escape it produces Wind and Heat (see my book on the subject of Qi stagnation) which you certainly experienced, and these tend to push upwards.

Other ways of dissipating it include exercise and, for example, Tai Chi, and as you pointed out, there are foods that make you more susceptible and other foods that make you less susceptible. Most junk foods and foods that include sweeteners or sugar make you more susceptible.

If you can take it, organic cider vinegar taken neat often controls the Liver qi rage.

Keeping fit is the best thing you can do to avoid the damaging effects of Qi stagnation: that, plus good sleep, good food, good exercise, someone to love (and preferably by loved by) and something fulfilling to do. Many would include something to believe in, as well.

Thank you, again.
