How Can Chinese Herbs Improve Mental Health?

How Can Chinese Herbs Improve Mental Health?

The pandemic has thrown up a lot of challenges, with the effects of lockdown and general uncertainty has taken its toll on people’s mental health and wellbeing.

Mental health disorders are conditions that can disrupt a person’s thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others, and daily functioning which can result in a diminishing capacity for coping with the ordinary demands of life.

Complications linked to mental health include decreased enjoyment of life, social isolation, extreme mood changes and depression. 

These symptoms can negatively affect emotions, thoughts and behaviours.

With so much uncertainty in the world, supporting mental health awareness is taking one step closer to ensuring those suffering get back to their best.

In Chinese culture, it is believed that mental health disorders can disrupt the flow of Qi (vital energy) and it is not recognised as one syndrome. These methods aim to treat specific symptoms unique to the individual to restore imbalances in the body.
