How A Warming Diet Helps Qi Deficiency In Dogs
In TCVM, Qi is the energy of the body.
Additionally, it also defines the energy of the meridians within the body, the energy of food, and the energy of the universe.
Qi deficiency also defines a state in which the body lacks the ideal amount of Qi.
Furthermore, it usually occurs in older dogs displaying weakness and a lack of energy.
Because warming foods tend to increase the metabolism and get the energy flowing, a warming diet can benefit Qi deficient dogs.
Warming, cooling and neutral in relation to “Food Energetics” denotes how each food affects the physiology and metabolism of the animal after consumption.
The Five Elements And A Warming Diet

The five major organs of the body:
Organs interact with one another in various ways.
Additionally, the foods dogs eat can help promote their major organs. And, how the organs perform in their body.
The Yin/Yang Theory In A Warming Diet
The Yin/Yang theory describes how every naturally occurring event has equal and opposite forces in nature.
Some examples of Yin/Yang are: hot/cold, light/dark, day/night, weak/strong, soft/hard, dry/wet, etc.
One force cannot exist without the other and often times one force is the origin for the other.
The Yin/Yang forces are in constant motion, conflict, and struggle.
The ultimate goal is a balance between each opposing force.
All foods have this yin/yang principle in the form of cooling, warming or neutral.
Pets deficient in cooling energy gain balance by consuming warming foods.
Luckily, food therapy can be easy, and energetic balance helps all pets live longer lives.
