Dogs suffer from anxiety just like humans.
Some signs of dog anxiety and nervousness are:
- Escape behavior
- Self-licking/biting for no apparent reason
- Reduced activity
- Tucked tail
Luckily, Eastern medicine offers a natural, herbal solution for dog anxiety.
Shen Calmer: Western Medicine Applications
Even though Shen Calmer is a TCVM herbal blend, it still helps some Western diagnoses and symptoms.
Shen Calmer helps dogs with the following Western diagnoses:
- General Anxiety
- Separation Anxiety
Shen Calmer: Eastern Medicine Applications
Eastern medicine treats a disease’s root cause(s) rather than symptoms.
Accordingly, TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) vets use a different evaluation process than Western veterinarians.
TCVM vets look for signs of imbalance.
Shen Calmer helps dogs with the following TCVM signs:
- Blood deficiency
- Heart Yin deficiency
- Red, dry tongue
- Shen (Spirit) disorder
- Thin, fast pulse
According to TCM principles, stress causes Liver Qi stagnation.
After some time, Liver Qi stagnation transforms into the fire which consumes Heart Yin and disturbs Shen (spirit and mental activities).
With disturbed Shen, anxiety and nervousness manifest, eventually leading to a lack of focus, poor performance, and even madness.
The key to treating Shen disturbance is to nourish Heart Yin and cool Fire.
