You Gui Wan – by Blue Poppy Great Nature Classics
(You Gui Wan – Blue Poppy Great Nature Classics) – Adrenal fatigue occurs when the adrenal glands function below the necessary level. This can happen as a result of intense or prolonged stress, and also may show up during or after acute or chronic infections, especially respiratory infections. In Chinese Medicine Adrenal + Fatigue is considered to be a combination of 3 pathologies: Kidney yin, yang, and Jing deficiency, Qi and Blood deficiency, and a weakness in the middle burner. A long enough period in this state can lead to adrenal fatigue, premature aging, weakness, fatigue, lack of interest, drive, and satisfaction, as well as exhaustion of energy both physically and mentally. As always when dealing with a long standing pattern like this you want to address it on multiple levels. In Chinese medicine we feel that the best way to regenerate really deep deficiencies like this is with Chinese herbs.
