The background to Heart and Gallbladder deficiency is usually a lack of courage or decisiveness in life.
This can also occur, however, when someone, usually incisive in their decision-making, becomes overcome by events, or overtired from constant challenges. He cannot see his way forward!
In terms of Chinese medicine, the Heart, governor of the Shen, doesn't have the means to let the Shen rest in the Blood, so the Shen quickly emerges and cannot be put to bed again.
What does that mean?
This syndrome, although it characterises some people it would seem from birth, can be imposed on an otherwise fit individual from exhaustion or chronic or long-lasting disease.
Typically, however, it develops from a weak Gallbladder energy.
When growing up, this type of person needs a protective environment that allows him gradually to grow in self-confidence.
Because this kind of person is not strong intellectually, he tends to make quite big mistakes in life, and is easily led, to his disadvanage.
Chinese medicine has some good treatments for it, but even so, in my experience, results don't come overnight.
