From a Chinese medicine perspective, depression and anxiety can be understood as a disturbance to the shen (roughly translated as our spirit). When the shen is disturbed, manifestations might include a feeling of lack of meaning in one’s life, an inability to connect to other people, feelings of worthlessness and self-loathing, lack of energy, and feeling inauthentic, among other things. Chinese medicine therapies can guide the qi to move more smoothly, alleviating feelings of being stuck emotionally or spiritually.

Insomnia can occur as a result of excess conditions such as liver fire, heart fire, and food stagnation. It is also a symptom of deficiency, especially heart yin, blood, or qi deficiency.

When it is weak, a variety of infections can occur. Chinese medicine uses acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and Chinese dietary therapy to effectively treat the symptoms of allergic attacks as well as eradicate the roots of the allergies.
