Last week I spoke about the effectiveness of Chinese Medicine when treating anxiety.
Acupressure and acupuncture help to balance the body’s vital energy which affects the body, mind, and spirit. Each yin organ energy pathway is associated with an emotion. When an acupressure practitioner takes pulses during a session she/he determines where the energy imbalances lie. They then treat the imbalance which will also help to balance the emotions. Over time the anxiety will usually improve.
Kidney health is extremely important when dealing with anxiety. When the kidneys are run down it slows the healing process. The kidneys are weakened by overexposure to toxins, overwork, stress, eating too much meat, excessive alcohol consumption, poor sleeping habits, and some medications. The emotion of fear, which plays a large role in anxiety, is associated with kidney energy. In Traditional Chinese Medicine the kidneys and adrenal glands are the same organs. The kidneys are also associated with the bones and hair.
Foods which help to support kidney energy will also help with anxiety.
These foods include:
- black beans
- dill seed
