Our stomach is an integral part of our body's perpetual engine - the digestive system. Acting as a temporary storage facility, the stomach secretes calculated amounts of natural enzymes and acids, and converts complex food into simpler digestible form for the intestines. Without a healthy and functional stomach, the intestines will not be able to extract necessary nutrients from our food. Furthermore, imbalances in the stomach can lead to various digestive maladies such as heartburn, discomfort, flatulence, constipation, and even loss of appetite. The Chinese herbal school of thought is based on the belief that digestive issues, like most bodily problems, are a result of an imbalance in body's Qi energy, and Yin and Yang in the lower body. These imbalances create an internal disharmony, affecting other organs in the digestive system, and leading to unregulated and at times untimely release of acids and enzymes. Over the centuries, Chinese herbalism has sought to overcome these imbalances and aid the body regain the natural harmony.
Chinese herb practitioners understand that harmony can be achieved naturally and at all times. Hence, over the span of 5000 years, herbalists have dedicated themselves to finding and characterizing herbs, and developing herbal formulas to address various imbalances in the digestive system. As a result, a vast array of herbal knowledge has been dedicated to the human digestive system. To address digestive issues, Chinese herbalists have created various herbal formulas which harmonize the lower body's Qi energy and yin/yang balances to maintain normal digestion. Given that stress can be a prime contributor to increased acidity, uncontrolled, and untimely release of enzymes and acids, herbalists have also recommended herbal mixtures for relieving stress, reducing stomach acidity, and controlling unregulated production and release of enzymes and acids.
