Chinese Medicine

Chinese medicine understands nervousness and anxiety as a problem most often originating with the heart. Insomnia also often accompanies this condition. These problems are caused by constrained or bottled emotion in the chest. Having experienced a loss, the memory of a loss, repressed expression and other similar traumatic events cause a trapping of energy in the chest. Relief can be gotten by physically releasing the Qi in the chest which, in turn, will release the pent up energy. Push-ups work just as well as Prozac. Acupuncture also works well. Other methods for getting a release in the chest include breathing exercises, boxing, yoga techniques, chest massage, forceful wailing and crying and most any exercise that involves the upper body. Chinese herbs treat anxiety by moving the liver Qi which is the Qi of the chest. One of the best herbs for this is Hare’s Ear Root (chai hu, Bupleurum) which is significantly enhanced when taken with a small amount of mint (ho he). There is a famous 900 year old formula for this condition called Xiao Yao Wan or rambling powder. It relieves trapped energy and encourages the free flow of Qi in the chest.

Take a few minutes each day to sit quietly with your spine erect.  Watch your breath going in and out and try to get the mind to stay with the breath.  At first this will be difficult because the mind is like an unruly child that has never been taught any manners.  Don’t be upset when the mind wanders off.  Be patient and bring your attention back to the breath.  You will eventually begin to experience a peace that is very satisfying.  Then meditating will become easier.  This is one of the best natural remedies for nervousness.

Eat Carbohydrates

Eat a lot of carbohydrates (best if whole grain and whole food) such as pasta, bread and tortillas.  These are known as comfort foods for their ability to create a lot of serotonin in the brain.  This has a peaceful calming effect.  Serotonin also helps your brain to regulate sleep. Foods high in B vitamins are also helpful.  These include whole grains, bell peppers, and corn.  By the way, carbohydrates (whole food) do not cause weight gain.  It is fat and oil that makes one fat.
