Stress is naturally part of our environment as we are navigating through our lives. It presents itself through irritability, tension, brain fog, headaches, accelerated heart rate, anxiety and depression. Western Medicine identifies stress as the moments when cortisol, adrenaline, and noradrenaline are released into the body. Any unused chemicals can accumulate and are felt within the body long after. Chinese Medicine identifies stress as a product of negative emotions affecting the liver. Stagnated liver energy can lead to physical tension, depression and anxiety. The goal is to bring the organs back into balance. Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture are viable options to tonify the liver, while encouraging the body’s homeostasis path.
