Chinese Theory behind Calm Shen: Chinese theory considers anxious behavior to be a disharmony within the body. Herbs can be used to manage this issue. Herbsmith Calm Shen is a combination of Chinese herbs that calm the spirit and harmonize the heart and kidney while preserving the dog's unique vitality. In Chinese theory the heart not only pumps blood, but also houses the spirit and provides the ability to be settled in the world. In a healthy dog, the heart, a fire element (yang), and the kidney, a water element (yin), are balanced. Excessive emotional or physical stress and aging can diminish normal kidney function, which leads to the inability to control heart shen and subsequently allows nervousness to occur. Anxious behavior may also occur due to an imbalance of the heart itself. Any depletion of heart yin or blood may exhibit signs such as heat or agitation. The herbs in Herbsmith Calm Shen are specially combined to support normal kidney function and tonify heart yin and blood, thus calming the spirit.
Remember to sprinkle a pinch on your animal's feed at mealtime and gradually increase the quantity given each day until they eat a full dose without hesitation.
