Stress, Mind Peace

" stress makes you think everything has to be fixed now, in fact things have a way of working themselves out." 

In the paradigm of Chinese medicine, diseases are categorized into two distinct types: physical diseases and mental disorders. The relentless progress of medical science has significantly advanced the treatment of physical ailments, with modern medicine and collaborative efforts with traditional practices successfully alleviating or curing many. However, the landscape of mental disorders remains challenging.

Chinese medicine, distinguished by its holistic approach, underscores the interconnectedness and mutual influence between physical diseases and mental disorders. Stress, from the perspective of Chinese medicine, is often attributed to liver Qi stagnation, a condition with far-reaching effects on various bodily systems, including the heart/mind, spleen, and kidneys. This interconnected web gives rise to a myriad of symptoms, with stress serving as a catalyst for conditions such as headaches, dizziness, teeth grinding, shallow respiration, palpitations, insomnia, nightmares, anxiety, diarrhea or constipation, frequent urination, fertility challenges, and pervasive fatigue.

Acknowledging this intricate relationship, Chinese medicine seeks to address not only the symptoms but also the underlying imbalances contributing to mental and physical health challenges. By adopting a holistic perspective, Chinese medicine provides a comprehensive framework for understanding and treating the complexities of stress-related disorders, fostering a harmonious equilibrium between the body and mind.
