As the root cause of all modern-day diseases is stress, we will need some form of stress remedy everyday.
I believe that you have hear it everywhere that everywhere is stress! With the modern era today, we are living in our daily lives where many information comes from all directions. Therefore, we are constantly busy, not realizing that we need breaks once in a while to loosen up and relax.
Under TCM context, excessive stress drains your chi, which is known as the energy in our body. Therefore, I will be sharing the basis behind stress and also some effective stress remedy that helps your manage stress better.
In nature, every organ system in our body possess an adequate quantity of chi to function optimally. When stress enters the body, our liver goes into an overdrive mode, to maintain the body’s balance. the other organs will compensate to assist the liver go back to balance. The other parts of our body will also invest in a big amount of chi to recover from these emotional strains. This will influence the flow of chi and blood negatively. Therefore, if you are constantly exposing your body into these regular strains and excessive stress, this imbalance can sooner or later builds up into a chronic emotional or physical disease.
Apart from the sensation of feeling overwhelmed by the emotions of stress, these feelings of stress is frequently comes with symptoms like aches, pains, exhaustion, insomnia, loss of appetite, headaches and stomach aches. Without any stress remedy, these stresses can gradually build up until the person experiences signs and symptoms, which include an abnormal heartbeat, abnormal blood pressure, numbness on or along the face or limbs, arthritis, bronchial asthma or severe migraines. Since we are always caught up in this modern age of living, we might not always be aware of these smaller symptoms that appears once in a while. Therefore, our body escalates these physical symptoms, so you will become more aware, to take good care of it before it becomes too big for even your body to handle. In fact, some of these bodily signs and symptoms in response to built up stress, may feel quite horrifying.
Regardless of how terrifying of the signs and symptoms it gives, you can thank your body on these early indications. Just make sure you know your limits and learn to rest and relax.
