      She Gan Actions and Indications
  • Clears toxic heat; benefits throat (pain and swelling of throat due to fire excess, toxin, or phlegm-heat obstruction; may be used alone for mild or severe sore throat)
  • Transforms phlegm; clears LU (dyspnea, coushing with profuse sputum, coughing and wheezing due to phlegm-heat obstruction; may combine with warm herbs to treat obstruction and blockage due to cold phlegm)
  • (cc: SP deficiency with diarrhea)
    Special Notes:
  • She Gan sedates LU heat and disperses phlegm, while Ma Bo clears LU heat and benefits the throat.
  • She Gan and Shan Dou Gen have similar actions to clear heat, shan dou gen is stronger to sedate fire.
