Warm Interior Cold - TCM Herbal Formula Category


Warm Interior Cold - General Formula Concepts

The formulas within this section are warming/hot in nature and will dispel cold at various levels in the body. Superficial issues are treated by warming the channels, deeper in cold effects the middle warmer so those formulas warm the middle and dispel cold. In more serious cases the yang can collapse (or "devastate the yang") - these can be life or death situations. Formulas in this section must be used correctly with appropriate diagnosis as too much heat in the body can cause physical dryness, strong heat sensations, anxiety/insomnia and even manic episodes in high doses.
