Damp-Heat lurking in the Interior.
Clear Heat, resolve Dampness, regulate Qi, harmonize the Centre.
Tongue: Red or slightly red with a sticky-yellow coating. Even if the tongue is not red, the presence of a sticky-yellow coating is an essential sign for the prescription of this formula.
Pulse: Slippery, possibly only on the right side.
Caution and Contraindications:
The supplement can be used for several months because it combines resolving Damp-Heat with some tonification. As the supplement deals directly with Damp-Heat, when it is used in combination with acupuncture it allows the acupuncturist to direct attention to tonifying the body’s Qi. Contraindicated in pregnancy.
