Definition of Qi or Chi ( 气 )

 

Stemming from traditional Chinese culture, Qi is a force or form of energy contained in every living organism. Qi is also a force that binds all living organisms both internally and externally. It is a natural healing concept that is directly related to Traditional Chinese Medicine and it bears 2 branches. The first branch of Qi is contained as a nourishing portion in the food we take in, the air we breathe and the water we drink. In real sense TCM requires that what goes into the body should be of substance and quality for it to remain healthy and function properly. Such as, drinking purified or clean water, eating a balanced diet and breathing in toxic free air in order to achieve this branch of Qi. The second branch is related to the free-flowing bodily energy and other vital fluids that make up its circulatory system. In TCM, each of these branches is believed to encourage the body's natural self-healing properties. Qi works with the balance of Yin-Yang in the body. Yin is the structural part of Qi energy that is associated with the brute and physical side of the universe, death, moon, earth and night time it is also anything that is passive, cold, dark, moist, descending, solid or heavy. Yang is functional it is associated with the ethereal side of the universe, birth, sun, day and the sky, it is also anything active, expressive, hot, dry, fast and aggressive. Yin and Yang are both dependent functions of Qi, none can work without the other. For good health the yin-yang energies need to balance. In the occurrence of an imbalance, sickness may arise with the symptoms varying depending on the amount of Qi or its deficiency in the body. Hair loss in this case can be defined as a scalp condition resulting from lack of Qi or its imbalance.
