Description

Excerpted from Bensky:  Chinese Herbal Medicine Materia Medica, 3rd ed.

  • Clears the Liver and the eyes:  for red, swollen, and painful eyes from heat or wind-heat in the Liver channel.  Also for eye problems such as photosensitivity, night blindness, and insidious loss of vision without visible physical changes to the eye.*
  • Calms the Liver and anchors the errant yang:  for headaches and dizziness from ascendant Liver yang.  Recently this function has been expanded to include hypertension.*
  • Moistens the Intestines and unblocks the bowels:  for dry or infrequent stools or chronic constipation, especially when there is an aspect of Liver yin deficiency.*
  • Recently used to prevent atherosclerosis as it lowers both blood pressure and serum cholesterol.*

"The herb is dry-fried until slightly fragrant.  This reduces its ability to cool the Liver and expel wind, but enhances its capacity to tonify the Liver and Kidney, which makes it a valuable herb for eye problems. - Bensky
