Indications: General Qi Stagnation and blockages of the channels; In Chinese medicine, proper lymph flow relies on the free flow of Qi through the channels. As Qi stagnates, fluids stagnate; these fluids then heat up and become more thick and can create phlegm nodules. This is an important formula for "Toxic Heat" build up in the body and supporting the Wei Qi (immune) according to Chinese medicine.
Note: Organs mentioned are energetic organ systems according to TCM, not western medicine. Because this formula is quite cold, it is best to combine it with Restore the Middle Way formula for long-term use.
