: So what can you do to increase digestive Qi in a way so it will not upset the balance of the rest.
Of course, the reverse of the coin. How thoughtless of me:
Eat warm, nourishing, relatively low-fat meals. Don't eat desserts within an hour of meals, or regularly. Don't skip or delay meals. Don't read or watch tv while eating. Don't drink coffee or other caffenated drinks on a regular basis. Get plenty of rest and mild to moderate exercise daily. Try to worry less, and try to make contact with the earth on a regular basis (hiking and gardening are excellent).
That should pretty much do it.
