Emotional Problems

In Chinese medicine your physiology drives your psychology. That is to say that the health of your organs has a significant impact on your emotions.  And until your organs are in a healthier state, you will struggle to feel better emotionally.

Organ Health Drives Your Emotional Health

The most common emotional issues I see in my clinic are anxiety, depression, easily upset and irritability. The heart and/or the liver are almost always involved.

Often people are on anti-depressants for anxiety or depression.  Most of these drugs are serotonin reuptake inhibitors that force your body to retain higher levels of serotonin (the feel good hormone) in your bloodstream thereby making you feel better. These drugs treat the symptom only and do nothing to treat the underlying issue with the heart or liver that is causing the problem in the first place.  Come off the drug and all the symptoms usually come back.

People often seek therapy for their condition.  But again therapy may provide some useful coping mechanisms but does nothing to treat the underlying physiological condition that’s creating the problem.

The other emotion I see a lot is irritability and anger.  These are liver issues in Chinese medicine.

Until you get your heart and/or liver treated and their function returned to normal you will never feel right emotionally.

What Can You Do to Treat Your Emotional Health

If you are on drugs to manage your condition, stay on them and seek Chinese medicine treatment to improve your heart and liver health to the point where you can then liaise with your GP about tapering off these medications.  We help patients get off these types of drugs.

If you are not on medications then specific Chinese herbs are used to reduce anxiety, depression or irritability while we work on returning your heart and liver function back to normal.  This way we treat both the symptom and the cause to not only help you feel better now but also in the long-run when treatment stops.

Chinese medicine treatment includes Chinese herbs and acupuncture melbourne and is one of the most comprehensive and successful forms of natural medicine to treat heart and liver function problems to return you to a healthy mental state.
