Chinese Herbs To Regulate Energy

To elaborate on Chinese herbs to regulate energy, you must first understand the term "Energy". It is a very fundamental concept in Chinese medicine, often compared with the blood. The energy in the body circulates the same way as blood circulates and as with blood, energy can circulate too slowly, too quickly, or irregularly. When energy keeps flowing upwards, it can cause hiccups and vomiting; when it keeps flowing downwards, it can cause prolapse of the anus, the uterus, or the stomach. When energy flows too slowly, it can cause chest pain and depression. The class of herbs to regulate energy is used to make energy circulate smoothly in the body and one such herb is yellow jasmine. The ailments often treated by this class of herbs include chest pain, pain in the ribs, abdominal pain, vomiting, hiccups, prolapse of the anus, prolapse of the uterus, prolapse of the stomach, menstrual pain, enteritis and acute bronchitis.

However, herbs in this class travel very fast in the body, so they can use up a great deal of energy, not unlike a car that runs fast using up a great deal of gas and oil. For this reason, this class of herbs should not be used for a prolonged period of time.

The Chinese classify energy as yang and blood as yin. They are sister and brother, with energy as brother and blood as sister and they travel in the body hand in hand. In order to ensure that they travel together smoothly, the herbs to regulate energy and the herbs to regulate blood (class 12) are often used together.
