Dao Clinic - Angry lioness to picture anger management issues


Anger management issues involve the inability to control one's temper, leading to inappropriate expressions of anger and potentially causing problems in relationships, work, and overall well-being.

In Chinese medicine, anger is viewed as a symptom of an underlying imbalance in the body's energy, or "Qi."

Anger is often associated with an imbalance in the liver, which is responsible for the smooth flow of Qi throughout the body. When liver Qi stagnates, it can cause emotional disturbances, such as irritability, frustration, and uncontrolled anger.

To address anger management issues and the underlying imbalances, Chinese medicine practitioners employ a holistic approach that includes:

  1. Acupuncture: By stimulating specific points along the meridians, acupuncture helps regulate and balance the flow of Qi, particularly the liver Qi, alleviating anger and promoting emotional well-being.

  2. Herbal remedies: Customized Chinese herbal formulas can be prescribed to support liver function, promote the smooth flow of Qi, and address the root cause of anger management issues.

  3. Tui Na massage: This therapeutic massage technique stimulates acupressure points and meridians, encouraging the flow of Qi and helping to release emotional blockages related to anger.

  4. Qi Gong and Tai Chi: These gentle exercises combine movement, meditation, and breath control to enhance the flow of Qi, promoting relaxation and emotional balance, which can aid in anger management.

  5. Dietary therapy: A balanced diet that supports liver health and the overall flow of Qi can help address anger management issues.
    Foods that are beneficial for liver Qi include leafy greens, ​​Beets, Cruciferous vegetables(Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts ), Carrots, Turmeric, Garlic, Lemon, Green tea, Fatty fish andWhole grains (Brown rice, quinoa, and whole wheat,...)
