Is 定心丸 (ding xīn wán) just a drug?

In TCM, 定心丸 (ding xīn wán) is a kind of drug that can smooth one's nerves and set one's mind at ease, benefit vital energy and nourish blood. It now often refers to the words or act which can make someone feel assured. 

在中医里,“定心丸”是一种适应于益气养血、宁心安神的药物。现在通常指能让人觉得踏实、稳妥的话语或行为。

Examples: 

1. zài yī jiǔ jiǔ qī nián, yī jiǔ jiǔ bā nián yà zhōu jīn róng fēng bào de shí hòu, zhōng guó rén mín bì huì lǜ bìng méi yǒu fàng kāi, gěi yà zhōu dì qū chī le yì kē dìng xīn wán. 

在1997年、1998年亚洲金融风暴的时候,中国人民币汇率并没有放开,给亚洲地区吃了一颗定心丸。

We recall that during the Asian financial crisis in 1997-1998, China was quite a reassuring force for Asia by not devaluing the RMB.

2. tā zài nà duàn shí jiān de biǎo xiàn gěi guǎng dà jǐn zhāng xī xī de tóu zī zhě chī le yì kē dà dà de dìng xīn wán.

他在那段时间的表现给广大紧张兮兮的投资者吃了一颗大大的定心丸。

His performance during that time provides a heavy dose of reassurance for nervous investors.
