Abnormal feelings of anxiety, as distinct from the natural reaction we all have to stressful situations in our daily lives, are an emotional problem which can produce physical symptoms ranging from panic attacks, nausea and vomiting to palpitations, hyperventilation and diarrhoea.

Chinese Medicine practitioners regard anxiety as the result of depression of the energy in the liver and a weakness of the spleen. The liver energy must be moved and the spleen strengthened using medicine which includes Chinese angelica and ginseng. Thorowax root used together with white peony root will also help relaxation.
