Heart Blood Deficiency

This pattern is affiliated with anaemia, poor memory, ‘brain fog’ and the early stages of developing atherosclerosis and CVD. Heart blood deficiency can be a precursor to heart blood stagnation (atherosclerosis) as blood nourishes chi and chi moves blood. It is very common in people who spend long hours on the computer every day, thinking hard and living on snacks. It can also be caused by fad diets that have insufficient protein.
Symptoms:
Palpitations, dizziness, insomnia, dream disturbed sleep, poor memory, anxiety, propensity to be startled, dull pale complexion, pale lips.
