A: Traditional Chinese Medicine recognizes the feelings, experiences and symptoms which preface disease. These indications are what we call “subclinical.” It was actually an energetic imbalance that was causing your anxiety and palpitations. If the energetic issue had not been addressed, those symptoms could have later developed into something more serious.
Energetic imbalances will not show up on tests, but you still experience symptoms. These symptoms are your body trying to communicate with you, asking for help. If the call for help is ignored long enough, it will escalate into a greater health concern, and that’s when Western Medicine can diagnose the problem.
The good news is, Chinese Medicine can resolve your energetic imbalances, addressing the root of the problem, before it escalates. That’s why our herbs helped your palpitations and anxiety.

2. Your Heart was missing specific nutrition. In this case, it is missing what Chinese Medicine calls “Yin.” Lack of Heart Yin can also cause both temporary palpitations and anxiety.
