Chinese Herbs Stress Relief

If there were one Chinese herbal formula that I would like to put in the water supply it is Free and Easy Wanderer. This formula is used to relieve "liver stagnation".

When you are under stress, all of your organs are affected. The organ that is most affected, in Chinese Medicine, is your liver. All the stress you have had in your lifetime builds up and causes your liver to be "stuck". You must regulate your liver energy if you want to relieve stress. You can also get acupuncture for this. There is a famous point called Liver 3 that will relieve stress very quickly. Everyone needs this point! It is on your foot, between the first and second toes, about a half inch from the end of the foot.

Free and easy wanderer has herbs that relieve liver stagnation such as Bupleurum. Bupleurum regulates your liver energy. This is combined with other herbs such as white peony and Dang gui to harmonize the formula. This formula also has tonics in it such as poria to improve digestion.

There are many liver formulas to choose from, but this one is the most popular because it can be taken long term.

Liver stagnation can wreak havoc on your body. Digestive issues, PMS, anxiety and muscle aches and pains can all come from stress. In Chinese Medicine, your liver can energetically invade other organs, so unexplained vomiting and diarrhea that seem to occur for no reason, could come from stress.

Migraines, headaches and neck and shoulder pain are most commonly caused by stress. Stress makes your muscles tighten up. This can cause pain anywhere in your body. In my experience, when you have had stress a long time, physical therapy on the muscles themselves will not completely resolve the issue. You must treat the liver and help someone relax before the muscles can completely relax.
