Lycii Chrysanthemum by Plum Flower helps tonify yin essence and bring yin deficiency back into balance. Rather than treating specific illnesses or infections, traditional Chinese herbal theory focuses on creating harmony in all body regions, thereby strengthening the body to better withstand future illness. The Chinese believe that there should be a balance in the body between yin (internal fluids) and yang (fire of life). Yin and yang are equal and opposing forces that should be in harmony for optimal health. When either yin or yang becomes too dominant (or deficient), negative health can result. As we age, many people experience diminished yin in their bodies. Yin depletion can be accelerated by an overly active lifestyle, as well as excess chemical toxins introduced in the body.
