Notes From Our Clinicians For Chai Hu Jia Long Gu Mu Li Wan

Staff Clinical Notes

For shen disorders due to phlegm blocking the liver or for heat in the upper.  The liver is in part responsible for maintaining the overall flow of the qi.  If the liver qi movement is slowed or blocked by excess phlegm the overall flow between the upper and lower parts of the body can be impaired.  Generally this causes too much heat to accumulate in the upper jiao.
