Stress induces our body to produce hormones that may amplify our physical, mental and emotional disturbance. During periods of stress, the heart rate tends to increase and a person may lose the capacity to think rationally. High amounts of cortisol are often emitted from the body that could lead to nervousness, sadness and digestive issues as well as sleepless nights.
Chinese herbalists believe that stress occurs when there is a restriction in the flow of qi, the body's natural energy. They usually include the measurement of stress levels as a key consideration in diagnosing health problems. In situations where stress is too high, herbalists often suggest meditation (or at least frequent quiet/down time) in conjunction with special herbal formulas to relax the body and calm the mind. Chinese Herbal Supplements contain botanical ingredients that can de-stress the body and help reduce its symptoms. These formulas contain herbs which re-balance the body's qi, release tension and calm the mind so that the body can return to its harmonious position. They improve blood circulation and promote relaxation of the mind. A nourished mind and heart can allow the emotional disturbance to subside.
