|Herbsmith Calm Shen - 270ct tablet|
Herbsmith Calm Shen ( Calm Anxiety ) is for the dog exhibiting nervousness, hyperactivity and discontentment responding to environmentally induced stress.
From a traditional Chinese viewpoint, shyness, clinginess, separation anxiety, thunderphobia, fearfulness of loud noises and fear aggression are all signs of a heart shen disturbance. The herbs in Herbsmith Calm Anxiety may dampen and often resolve anxiety naturally without the need for sedatives or tranquilizers.
Western veterinary medicine describes anxious behavior as a neurosis and may prescribe sedatives or psychodynamic drugs to treat the symptoms. However, Chinese veterinary medicine considers the problem to be a disharmony and uses herbs to manage or resolve the issue. Herbsmith Calm Shen (Calm Anxiety ) is a combination of Chinese herbs that calm the spirit and harmonize the heart and kidney while preserving the dog’s vitality.
In Chinese medicine the heart not only pumps blood, but also houses the spirit and provides the ability to be settled in the world. In a healthy dog, the heart, a fire element (yang), and the kidney, a water element (yin), are balanced. Excessive emotional or physical stress, disease and aging can diminish kidney function, which leads to the inability to control heart shen and subsequently allows anxiety to occur.
Anxiety may also occur due to an imbalance of the heart itself. Any depletion of heart yin or blood will exhibit symptoms of anxiety such as heat or agitation.
Heart disturbances can result from genetic predisposition, blood loss, etc. The Chinese medicinal herbs in Herbsmith Shen ( Calm Anxiety ) are specially combined to support kidney function and tonify heart yin and blood, thus calming the spirit.
