often have cold feet and generally poor circulation. Can you suggest a way
to improve my circulation?
From a traditional Chinese
medicine perspective, your hands and feet may feel cold due to stagnation of
Qi in the middle of your body where it prevents the vital substances,
including blood, to flow to the extremities to warm them.
I suggest acupuncture and herbal prescriptions to help invigorate the Qi. I
also suggest you take up tai chi or qigong exercises. These are great
martial art forms that help with the body's internal circulation and
cultivation of Qi. From a dietary perspective, I suggest you incorporate
more warming and moving foods into your diet, including, tangerines,
tangerine peel, Chinese chives, lettuce, hawthorn berries, black pepper, and
Try this: peel tangerines, and dry the peel, then use the dried peel
to make tea. Put cinnamon bark in tea.
