Supports Head Comfort and Healthy Blood Pressure
Do you occasionally feel tension in the head? Of course you do, who doesn’t? Maybe you also get lightheaded from time to time and have trouble sleeping? And maybe you’re concerned about your blood pressure?
In fact, these concerns are, according to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theory, indicative of “internal wind,” or wind generated inside the body. Just as a strong atmospheric wind can shake and bend a tree, internal winds can jostle body parts, potentially causing tremors.
In TCM, the Liver has the Five Elements trait of wood (like a tree). Internal wind originates in the Liver and is often referred to as “Internal Liver Wind.”
When Liver Wind further develops, involuntary movement of fingers or toes and tremors may occur. In addition, other signs of Liver Wind may include occasional ringing in the ear, swollen eyes, red face and red tongue.
Liver Windclear™ (Tian Ma Gou Teng) is a famous TCM formula, which may alleviate common symptoms associated with internal Liver Wind. Liver Windclear may also help with involuntary shaking and maintain a healthy blood pressure.
Contemporary Formula Calms Liver and Extinguishes Internal Wind
Compared to classic Chinese medicines, the formula for Liver Windclear was developed a blink of an eye ago.
The Mandarin name for Liver Windclear refers to two herbs that are used in TCM to address involuntary muscle movements, all of which are indications of internal Wind caused by rising Liver Yang.
In TCM theory, there are several causes of internal Liver wind. A major root cause is Yin deficiency of the Liver and Kidneys. As Yin energy fails to balance Yang energy, Liver Yang spirals out of control to uprise, generating heat. And this heat further contributes to Liver Wind. Meanwhile, heat depletes your Liver of calming Yin energy. And depleted Yin of the Liver starves muscles of nutrients, ultimately leading to involuntary muscle movements such as spasms.
Liver Wind most often affects the upper part of the body. This explains why discomfort in the head and lightheadedness are two common symptoms.
How Does Liver Windclear Work?
Liver Windclear works because it acts on all the root causes mentioned above, thereby extinguishing internal Wind by sedating Yang, calming the Liver, clearing heat, invigorating the Blood, and nourishing both the Liver and Kidneys.
Tian Ma (Gastrodia Tuber) and Gou Teng (Uncaria Hook Vine) are the chief herbs in the formula; they both calm Liver and extinguish Wind. Shi Jue Ming (Abalone Shell) calms the Liver and restrains Yang.
Zhi Zi (Gardenia; Cape Jasmine Fruit) and Huang Qin (Scutellaria Root) clear heat from the Liver channel.
Du Zhong (Eucommia Bark) and Sang Ji Sheng (Mulberry Mistletoe Stem) tonify the Liver and Kidneys, as well as strengthen tendons and bones.
Chuan Niu Xi (Cyathula Root) invigorates blood and directs heat moving from the head downward. It also tonifes Liver and Kidneys.
Yi Mu Cao (Motherwort Herb) invigorates the blood and promotes urination.
Ye Jiao Teng (Polygonum Vine) and Fu Ling (Poria) both calm the Spirit.
