Four Movements of Qi

Excess and Def

When someone has damp, adding more “Qi” via qi tonics or acupuncture points may increase nitric oxide, damaging sodium potassium pumps and making water retention worse.

Don’t tonify excess. Don’t reduce deficiency

Fire and water= steam/qi (Y Axis)

Wood and metal= substance/blood (X axis)


In acupuncture/gasotransmitter work going straight to the kidneys can create lots of yang qi.

Yang qi without Earth to transform and transport turns to fire.
