Our Vitality blend is great for cultivating day to day energy and adaptability to stress. It can help to build blood, strengthen the spleen (digestion), increase blood flow, nourish the heart, and greatly support immune and respiratory health. This balanced (yin/yang) blend will not over stimulate, or over heat the body and is suitable for daily use. This blend is designed to benefit the Qi enerrgy of the body. Qi is derived from the 3 Treasure system developed in ancient China according to Taoist tradition. Jing, Qi(chi), and Shen are the Three Treasures that constitute our life.
Jing can best be described as our primal essence, it is the first and most superior treasure. It is the energy we receive at conception and it is designed to last our entire life. Science sees it as DNA, it resembles our developmental, creative, sexual and reproductive energies. It determines what and who we are and how long we will live. It is the most important treasure to nourish or we will die. The Jing is housed in the kidney/adrenal meridians. See our Restore Blend for more info.
Qi or Chi, is best described as the day to day energy and vitality derived from the air we breathe and the foods we eat. It is the circulating living energy that flows through the twelve meridians keeping the organs firmly in place. The body must be kept clean and well maintained in order for the Qi to flow freely. The Lungs and Spleen are the corresponding organs for our Qi.
This is a combination of our mind and spirit. When the Jing and Qi are properly developed, our Shen will glow. Shen is our higher self and the connection to the divine. Shen is housed in the heart, and when proplerly nourished provides us with feelings of peace, calm, and serenity. It gives us proper perspective on our lives and our place in the universe. Our shen depends on our properly nourished Jing and free flowing Qi to make the right decisions in life and to contribute to our world and to our creator.
