Stress & tension in daily life – Stress and tension seem to be pervasive in our daily lives and many people are on a constant quest to find a way to lessen their stress, while still rushing to get more done in our lives. Despite the technology that is supposed to make things easier, for many of us it only makes it more difficult to unplug at the end of our day. In Chinese medical theory, the first place people hold tension is in the stomach. In fact, children frequently get stomachaches when stressed. When we get older, tension may settle in other parts of the body and manifest as headaches, nervous tics, nervous laughter or muscles spasms, but the tension still initially still goes through the stomach. Our Chill Out formula is designed to relieve the symptoms of stress as well as going back to the original source of the tension—the digestive tract and is effective for people of all ages including children, teens and adults.
