HOW IT WORKS
According to Eastern philosophy, life permits us to work with what we have on earth here and now—body and mind—in order to reclaim and maintain the innate energy and spirit that reside within us. Energy and spirit must be awakened, nurtured and balanced in order for life to flourish. TCM philosophy names five distinct energies that permeate the body:Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood. In order to feel your best, these energies must be in balance. Concerning the heart and mind, Fire controls emotional states, mood and circulation of the blood. To address your fire element, try Stress Relief (-). Chinese Stress Relief is a combination of 14 herbs and natural substances used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to support emotional balance and calm a stressed fire constitution. The Chinese call this formula an shen, which can be translated to mean “to pacify the spirit.”
