- Anxiety/depression/manic issues with a tendency towards losing self-control (crying fits, excessive yawning, etc.) that result from the combination of heart yin deficiency and liver qi stagnation.
- Insomnia, possibly with vivid dreaming and heart palpitations.
- Post-partum depression and milder symptoms of menopause.
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.
