monthly hormones or emotional stress) the outcome is depression) the outcome is depression and/or compromised movement in the body of things that need to move. Huang qin Scute assists the chai hu Bupleurum in opening up the channels for that healthy qi flow.

These herbs are like a brick that anchors that balloon so it doesn’t get brown around. This leaves one feeling more calm and grounded state of mind, body and spirit.
