ChinaMed Empty Heat Formula 78c
This is a variant of Liu Wei Di Huang Wan (Rehmannia Six Formula), which was first recorded in ‘Syndrome Analysis According to the Pulse’ (zheng yin mai zhi), by Qin Jing-ming, 1702. The formula makes use of the synergistic pair: Phellodendron (huang bai) and Anemarrhena (zhi mu) to reduce Fire that occurs in Kidney Yin deficiency.
This formula treats the syndrome of Kidney Yin deficiency with Fire flaring, which is a complication of Kidney Yin deficiency, in which the clinical features of deficiency Heat or deficiency Fire predominate (key clinical features noted above). The causes of this syndrome are the same as for Kidney Yin deficiency (see comments on YIN TONIC Formula CM118). It should be noted that there is always some degree of deficiency Heat that accompanies Kidney Yin deficiency. However, the degree of severity of the Heat determines the clinical priorities of treatment.
The syndrome of Kidney Yin deficiency (with or without the Fire) may manifest clinically in a wide range of chronic conditions affecting various bodily systems, most notably the endocrine, urogenital, cardiovascular systems.
Thus, in cases with relatively minor manifestation of Heat, treatment should be directed primarily towards tonifying the deficiency (e.g. with YIN TONIC Formula CM118). In cases with the severe manifestations of Fire, treatment should be simultaneously directed towards reducing the Fire as well as nourishing the Kidney Yin, which are the clinical actions of this formula.
An additional use for this formula is in cases with Damp-Heat in the lower Jiao together with deficiency of the Kidney Yin. This is generally seen in chronic inflammatory conditions of the urogenital system.
