The Gentle Waves tincture is based on Chai Hu Shu Gan Tang, a blend used in traditional Chinese medicine.
The traditional Chai Hu Shu Gan Tang mixture is used for Gan Qi Zhi stagnation (stagnation of the liver Qi), which is caused by emotional fluctuations and stress. Often, our lives are not simple. Emotions are a natural reaction of organs. Thanks to emotions, the organism prevents damage. Therefore, appropriate emotions are beneficial. Due to the unbalanced lifestyle and frequent stresses, however, emotions are often excessive, prolonged or suppressed. And it’s harmful for the organism. Thanks to its self-regulating ability, it can cope with these emotional fluctuations for quite some time. But if a certain threshold is exceeded, emotions will cause health problems. On both mental and physical levels.
Gan (the liver) among other things, is responsible for the flow of everything in our body. Blood, Qi, lymph. Excessive, prolonged, or suppressed emotions will begin to limit their function. And there will be blockages in the body, on both physical and mental levels. We call it stress somatisation. In women, these blockages begin to appear in certain typical places. Neck, breasts, lower abdomen, chest, etc. Typically, these problems become worse during stress or before menstruation.
We have enriched this traditional mixture with herbs that release blockages in the breast area.
