Balance & Restore: Heart & BrainBalance & Restore: Heart & Brain

We need to take care of our hearts since heart disease is one of the leading causes of morbidity in the western world. Whatever is good for our heart happens to be good for our brain, which means that the mental decline that accompanies aging can often be prevented.

In Chinese medicine theory, the health of our brain depends upon the health of our heart as well. The heart energy network is responsible for delivering nutrients to our brain, and our brain is responsible for sending neural messages to our heart.

Wellbeing in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is viewed as keeping the body's mental, emotional and physical components in balance in order to engender a state of peace, calm and happiness, and freedom from discomfort, pain, or illness.

Ask Dr. MaoQ: I am in my early twenties, and I have such a problem sleeping at night that it leaves me in a state of anxiety and fear. How can I get to sleep?

A: For a young adult to have such difficulty with falling asleep and fear is out of ordinary. Do you have reasons to fear? Have you had a fearful incident? I would suggest you consult a therapist to make sure your emotional state is healthy.

In the meantime try this:

1. Consume a diet rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, vitamin B, and vitamin E.

2. Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables such as apricots, asparagus, avocados, bananas, broccoli, brown rice instead of white rice, figs, and yogurt.
