Cordyceps and Your Lung Qi (Energy)
Cordyceps strengthens your lung energy. In Chinese medicine, if your lung energy is low, you can have any one of the following symptoms:
- Daytime sweating
- Dislike of Cold
- Dislike of speaking
- Propensity to catch colds
- Shortness of Breath
- Weak voice
It is not uncommon to have a lung weakness after recovering from cold or flu. When you cough a lot, it weakens your lung energy. After a cold or flu, often people have a slight cough. It might not be all the time, but a few times per day.
Your lungs have not completely recovered. Cordyceps can help build your lung energy when recovering from a cold or other lung ailment.
Cordyceps is used to strengthen the lung energy as well as the kidneys. It also helps to “resolve phlegm“. That means that any residual phlegm in your lungs after a cold could possibly be resolved by cordyceps.
