Disease description:

Anxiety is a normal emotion. It’s your brain’s way of reacting to stress and potential threatening situation ahead.

It is part of life but if it gets out of control, it can become pathological and impair the quality of life. Most often fears occur in connection with heart disease, respiratory diseases or thyroid disorders.  Depression or another mental illness, disorders of the nervous system and the brain can be the cause for it. Anxiety can trigger various symptoms such as heart palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness, trembling, nausea, vomiting and sweating.

Explanation according to the Traditional Chinese Medicine:

Chinese medicine refers to anxiety and palpitations as Heart Shen disturbance, because the Heart controls the Shen. Shen refers to the higher central nervous activities which include the spirit, consciousness and thinking. Imbalance of Yin and Yang and disturbance of Heart function may cause anxiety and palpitations.
