Wen Dan Wan - Insomnia, Anxiety Herbal Formula

Uses: Insomnia, Palpitations, Anxiety, Gnawing Hunger.  Wen Dan Pian (Wen Dan Tang Wan, Rising Courage Teapills), literally translates as the "Warm The Gallbladder" Formula. This formula is a famous herbal remedy for insomnia and/or anxiety particularly when it arises from "phlegm-heat" in Traditional Chinese Medicine terms. The concepts of dampness and phlegm in Chinese Medicine are much broader than in our western understanding of mucus as they have to do with the smooth flow of energy and emotions in our body. ($8.99)
