Treat Dryness Functional Grouping

Dryness in Chinese Medicine terms may be internal, generally arising from heat, or external arising from the season or environmental conditions. Externally the lung system is most often involved and internally the kidneys and lungs are commonly involved along with the spleen and large intestine. These formulas need to be used wisely in patients who also present with signs of dampness as their use can promote that imbalance.
