please choose carefully whether capsules or powder and sizes. Thanks.
This highly respected formula is a modification of two other formulas: most of the ingredients from Four-Substance Decoction with Safflower and Peach Pit and Bupleurum and Chih-shih Formula can be found in this formula. Used all together, the goal is to support the cardiovascular health by stimulating the flow of qi and blood.
Qi flow could be thought of as the neurological component of the heart beat, while blood flow should be a familiar concept for modern peoples.
The premise then is to support the flow of qi and blood through the chest. This can have really great benefits for those with benign chest pains, palpitations, or symptoms of the cognitive/psychological functions of the heart such as insomnia, restlessness or ADD. These mental/emotional functions are unique to Chinese medicine, though biomedicine also recognizes cognitive issues that arise from things like heart surgery or heart attacks.
We should note at this point that you don’t know if your chest pains are a problem or not until you have that checked out by an adequately licensed healthcare practitioner in your jurisdiction. Once you’ve ruled out anything that needs immediate attention, we can talk about the best way to help you out, which may be this exact formula.
