More About This TCM (In English):
Property
Bitter, pungent, light cold; liver meridian entered.

Actions
Clear heat and cool blood, activate blood and resolve stasis, clear liver fire.

Indications
A. Heat entering nutrient-blood in warm diseases
Its actions of heat-clearing and blood-cooling as well as stasis-resolving are similar to that of Mu Dan Pi; both of them have the characteristics of cooling blood without leading to blood stagnation and activating blood without leading to bleeding; it is also a commonly used herb for clearing heat and cooling blood, but is not as good at clearing blood heat as Mu Dan Pi does.

B. Syndrome of blood stasis
It has better action of activating blood and resolving stasis, and excels in stopping pain caused by blood stasis. It is much suitable for treating syndrome of stagnation due to blood heat, which is similar to that of Mu Dan Pi; while it is also indicated for treating stagnation due to congealing cold when being combined with meridian-warming and cold-dispelling herbs or blood-activating herbs which are warm and unblocking in nature.

C. Blood-shot eyes with swelling and pain
It excels in clearing liver fire, and is indicated for blood-shot eyes with swelling and pain, photophobia with profuse eye secretion.

Dosage and Administrations
Decoct 6~12g.
