Notes From Our Clinicians For Bi Yan Wan

Staff Clinical Notes

For lung qi deficiency leading to accumulation of phlegm, wind and or heat in the upper jiao.  When the lung qi is strong and in good circulation the lung system is protected against the influence of pathogenic factors.  When the lung qi is weakened the lung system and to a lesser extent the upper jiao/burner is more vulnerable.  This may result in the accumulation of wind and damp/phlegm in the lungs and the upper jiao/burner/warmer.  Since the lungs govern the nose and the nose is one of the most easily accessible areas of the body for external pathogenic factors many of the symptoms will relate directly to the nose and sinuses.
