WHAT IS MENTAL ILLNESS ACCORDING TO CHINESE MEDICINE?

According to Chinese Medicine mental health is largely influenced by the Liver, whose function is to keep Qi smoothly flowing. This is why people who abuse drugs and alcohol, can end up with health issues, as their Liver has become blocked and weakened from the abuse of substance.

If the blockages cause more an excessive Yang , then you can become angry, frustrated and even suffer headaches or migraines.

Ailments like stress and anxiety come from emotions which have caused our Qi flow to become blocked. If Qi doesn’t flow smoothly, neither do our emotions. If the blocked Qi flow causes an imbalance towards too much downward yin energy, then we become upset, lethargic, withdrawn and even lose our appetite.

When Qi is plentiful and flowing smoothly, then we suffer no illness and have a long life. Many things can disrupt the flow of our Qi unfortunately , and further upset the balance of yin and yang.

Many people can become stressed after the death of a loved one, or chronic illness, which can weaken your Qi.  Depending on each individuals constitution, symptoms can manifest differently.  Some suffer from a tight chest, nausea, insomnia or anxiety, whereas someone else who has may develop digestive problems like, IBS like symptoms due to a inherently weak digestion.
