Chinese Four Herbs Soup – Dessert Edition

Another common body constitution in Singapore is Qi Deficiency. This constitution greatly affects your immunity. To help, we have adapted a popular soup recipe for dessert to invigorate your Qi. But first, let’s look at some common indicators of Qi Deficiency:


  • Often short of breath/fatigue, dizziness, feeble voice (esp. after exercising)
  • Catch flu/cold easily, sinusitis, sensitive to environmental changes (weaker immune system)
  • Palpitations, lower backaches, frequent urination, impotence or low libido.
  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse (dropped bladder, bowel, rectum, uterus)
  • Excessive sweating, teeth marks on the tongue, bloating especially after eating, sluggish bowel movements


Qi Deficiency was a topic explored in one of our corporate talks from September 2019.
