Individuals who experience prolonged mental stress often suffer insomnia, restlessness, loss of memory, dizziness, and sometimes constipation. Hawthorn (shan zha) is slightly warming, entering the liver, spleen, and stomach to transform accumulation and stagnation; promotes the free flow of Qi and relieves stress. Polygala (yuan zhi) is aimed at tonifying heart qi and yin. Dong quai (dang gui) tonifies and nourishes the blood. Poria (fu ling) and jujube (suan zao ren) calm the heart and spirit. Dong quai and ophiopogon (mai men dong) moisten the intestine. Removing heat from the heart: ophiopogon (mai men dong) and codonopsis (dang shen) are added to tonify Qi in general and help generate fluids. Because stress may also induce anger, Chinese peony (bai shao) helps remove liver stagnation.
