Notes From Our Clinicians For Gan Mai Da Zao Wan

Staff Clinical Notes

In TCM the heart is where the mind resides, therefore when the heart is weak the mind becomes disturbed.  Another component of the mind is the hun, which resides in the liver.  Therefore when both the heart and liver are deficient the mind can become significantly ungrounded and abnormal behavior may result.
