Qigong is an ancient Chinese health practice that combines medicine, philosophy, and martial arts to create a balance in life's energy or chi, in their body through diet, and exercise.
We follow a diet of seasonal foods, cooked according to the seasons as well.
Steam in the spring, sauté in the summer, stews and baking in the fall and winter.
Green and white unfermented tea is recommended for best health as well as spring water to increase energy, for physical and mental health.
Cold drinks are not recommended as they create a damp condition in the body leading towards illness.
Food is a very important component towards good health and to follow the yin yang theory to increase or decrease metabolism to gain balance.
