Indications: both the Liver and Gallbladder meridians travel
to the head, when there is Heat in these meridians one will see pain in the
hypochondriac region, headache, dizziness, red sore eyes, trouble with
hearing, ear swelling or infection, bitter taste in the mouth, irritability,
& anger. Since the Gallbladder and
San Jiao are interiorly-exteriorly related Heat in the Gallbladder effects the water metabolism of the San Jiao which causes
internal dampness. Together these
create Damp and Heat which can cause hot painful difficult urination that is
dark yellow and smelly, possible smelly leukorrhea or menstrual
irregularities in women, along with other conditions that affect the external
genitalia (herpes, eczema, tinea).
T- red with yellow
coat, P- wiry. The use of Dan Zhi Xiao
Yao San may be used for similar although milder
cases with signs of stagnation.
These conditions translate into urinary tract
infections, pyelonephritis, gallstones, conjunctivitis, otitis media,
cystitis, or orchitis.
Long Dan Xie Gan
Tang cools Heat without causing Stasis, and drains pathogenic Qi without
injuring the patients vital Qi.
Caution should be used with Spleen deficient
patients. The very cold and bitter
properties of this formula also limit its use to
short term low dose administration.
