Is Chinese Medicine Practical To Relieve Anxiety?

By , April 23, 2013 12:22 am

Anxiety affects about 30% of the population in the United States. As the text of this blog has highlighted on many occasions, anxiety is a type of disorder that causes you to feel incredibly worried about a situation. There are many types of anxieties including panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety attacks, phobias, generalized anxiety disorder and traumatic stress disorder.

As we all known, many people who suffer from anxiety take anti-depressant drugs in order to handle their depression. Anti-depressant drugs cannot completely cure your anxiety problems and they generally only alleviate the symptoms of anxiety attacks. The downside of taking anti-depressants is that they can damage the organs in your body. If you don’t want your body to suffer from the adverse effects of drugs, it is advisable that you take Chinese herbal medicine.

Many people doubt that Chinese remedies can cure a disease effectively. Actually, Chinese medicine is more complicated than Western medicine. There are more than 10,000 Chinese herbs and substances which can be used as medicine to treat various diseases including anxiety and depression. Chinese medicine does not just encompass herbs but it also encompasses other types of substances such as animals and minerals.

Although Chinese herbs are not as common as pharmaceutical drugs, you can still find them in specialist stores. Due to the fact that the herbal medicines are organic, you will have less of a chance of suffering from side effects.

Chinese medicine physicians claim that anxiety is a natural reaction to fear. They believe that anxiety attack is related with imbalance between the water element and kidney deficiencies. Anxiety happens as a result of the stagnation of the Qi energy that flows in the meridian system of the body. When the path of the Qi is obstructed, the mental and emotional health will also be affected. There are many reasons why the meridian system can be obstructed including imbalanced diet, stress and trauma. There are many Chinese herbal formulas you can use for treating depression including Compassionate Sage, Ginseng and Logan Formula.

Depression symptoms such as schizophrenia, depression and insomnia, can be healed by regulating the flow of the Qi in the body. Statistics show that the usage of Chinese herbs to treat depression has a high success rate. Most patients that use Chinese herbal medicine to treat anxiety claimed that they no longer suffer from depression within a short period, usually of two to three weeks.

Besides using Chinese herbs, acupuncture can also be used to cure the problem as well. For example, acupressure on the Taixi point will reinforce the kidney energy while acupressure on the Sanyinjiao point can reinforce the spleen energy.

Should you decide to go down this alternative medicine path whilst trying to ease your anxiety, it is firmly advised to see a qualified Chinese medicine physician. The importance of the individual being accredited cannot be understated and should be the first thing you look for as you begin your search for the relevant professional.
