What does it do? In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)
This formula(Liu Wei Di Huang Wan) was formulated by Qian Yi Zhong Yang of the Song dynasty, by removing Cinnamomum(Pao Rou Gui) and Aconite(Fu Zi) from Zhong Jing's Ba Wei Di Huang Wan and retaining the other six ingredients: thus, the name Liu Wei Di Huang Wan. This formula is used to treat the Kidney meridian and the Liver meridian.
Rehmannia(Shu Di Huang), the principal ingredient in this formula, nourishes kidney yin, increases semen, and strengthens the bone marrow. Cornus(Shan Zhu Yu) stops nocturnal emission, conserves the qi, and dispels deficiency fire, preventing the liver qi from circulating abnormally and dissipating, and thus enables the storing of essential qi by the kidneys. Dioscorea(Shan Yao) invigorates the spleen, strengthens the kidneys and revitalizes the spleen qi, thus preventing a deficiency in the source of essential kidney qi. Paeonia(Mu Dan Pi) dispels fire and cools the blood. Poria cocos(Fu Ling) removes moist heat from the spleen. Alisma(Ze Xie) is both a diuretic and a tonic for the eyes and ears.
This formula has a wide range of clinical applications. It is principally helpful of a deficiency of kidney yin, flaming up of deficiency fire, soreness of the lumbar region and pain of the lower extremities, pain in a tooth, headache with dizziness, poor hearing and poor vision, night seating, poor sleeping, pain in the heels, inconvenience to urinate, recurring fever, warmth in the center of the hands and feet, toothaches by deficiency fire, dryness of mouth and throat, and difficulties in breathing with cough.
