CHINESE HERBS and CHINESE MEDICINE
Chinese Herbs for the Heart Yang
Traditional Chinese Medicine regards the pumping action of the heart and the circulatory system as the yang of the heart. The heart system includes the vessels (luo) and the tributaries (jing luo). It also includes the electrical energy which triggers the heart to contract (heart qi). Some herbs used to increase heart yang include cinnammon twig called gui zhi, and salvia milthorizzia called dan shen.
Chinese Herbs for the Heart Yin
The Heart is home to the Shen. The word Shen can mean spirit, mind, or supreme being. Sufficient heart fluids (heart yin and blood) are needed for the Shen to be comfortable in the heart. When the Shen is at home in your heart, you feel grounded and centered, and your actions are appropriate. Herb/ foodsthat build and maintain Heart Blood include Longan Fruit, Long Yan Rou and Sour Dates, Da Zao.
Deficient heart blood or heart yin can result in Restless Shen, causing irritability, anxiety, or insomnia. Rapid heartbeat (tacycardia), some kinds of irregular heartbeats (arhythmia), loss of memory or concentration, and panic disorder also arise from this conditon.Two good formulae for Heart Yin deficiency are Good Sleep and Worry Free Pill (shui de an) and Emperor's Tea Tian Huang Bu Xin Tang. They can be combined for maximum effect.
These herbs and herbal products are meant to be used for at least several months at a time or as a daily supplement.

A consultation consists of several e-mail exchanges resulting in an herbal prescription, treatment plan and possibly other suggestions. Consutations do not include the cost of herbs.
Attachments such as photos or videos are OK, but not necessary.
After purchasing a consultation
Regular, moderate excercise is needed to keep the vessels open and the heart well nourished. No matter which kind of excersice you choose, do it between 2-5 days per week. No more or less. Over, or under excersise will cause injury.
Nose breathing only. No mouth breathing unless the nasal passages are obstructed. Mouth breathing permits over-exertion which could overtax the heart or the qi.
Endeavor to do more, but generally stop short of your limits. The important part is keeping the activity regular. Push your limits only occasionally.
