A Short Glimpse in the Term Anxiety in Chinese Ancient Writings

Anxiety is a fascinating term in Chinese medicine, although it is hardly ever studied and it appears in only few writings.

This term describes a condition in which there is an involvement of the Upper Burner/ Shang Jiao and the Lower Burner/Xia Jiao in the body simultaneously, as the throbbing of the heart is accompanied by fear and a sense of quivering at the sides of the navel.
