Astringent and inhibiting, Ginkgo Semen (bai guo) enters the Lung channel to restrain the Lung qi, settle wheezing with profuse phlegm, alleviate turbid vaginal discharge, and contain the urine. It is appropriate for the treatment of cough and wheezing with profuse phlegm, turbid yellow vaginal discharge, painful urinary dribbling, turbid urine, and urinary frequency. When used for cough and wheezing, it is most suitable for patterns which tend toward heat. --Bensky: Chinese Herbal Materia Medica, 3rd ed.
