Our world is all go! go! go! and not enough slow, slow, slow.
Our lives are stressful, and we are drained by society’s Yang-dominant energy that tells us to work hard and keep performing. This exhausts you, as your body loses Yin energy in an attempt to fight stress. When you find yourself short on Yin, the reflective, calm energy in your system; you can have trouble sleeping, feel anxious, and experience hot flashes and night sweats with (peri)menopause.
Chica Chill helps bring your Yin back.
We say that Chica Chill helps, “nourish the heart and Yin,” but what does that mean? In this case, we are specifically considering Kidney Yin. The Kidney Yin is associated with your adrenals, which sit above your kidney, and produce the hormones that help your body respond to stress. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the connection between the Heart and the Kidney is what supports the adrenals, as well as your entire central nervous system.
Therefore, the more stressed you are, the harder your adrenals have to work, and thus the more your Kidney is depleted. The Kidney loses Yin during stress because it sends Yin up to the Heart to keep the Heart from overheating.
Low Yin and an overheating heart leads to anxiety, sometimes palpitations from anxiety, trouble sleeping, forgetfulness, and heat flashes. These symptoms listed above are common for people going through (peri)menopause.
When you begin menopause, you have already been depleting your Yin from stress throughout your life, and then on top of that, your body stops producing both Yin and estrogen, a hormone that can help you feel energetic, when you begin menopause. That can be a difficult emotional transition, but herbs, such as those in Chica Chill, can help by providing the Yin nourishment your body is craving.
Chica Chill offers herbs, such as Rehmannia, that are considered cool, Yin plants, thus adding more Yin to your system. Plus, eating Chica Chill helps reset the Heart-Kidney connection, which means that Chica Chill can help relieve your entire central nervous system and give your adrenals the support they need. With this nourishment, you feel less tired and less anxious.
How else do we feel when we nourish our Yin? The herbs in Chica Chill help sharpen the mind as well! With the slower, reflective energy of Yin, you may enjoy improved memory and focus after enjoying Chill. This makes Chica Chill perfect for students studying for exams, or someone starting a stressful new job.
