Anchor The Yang formula is used to treat hypertension caused specifically by rising excess Heat and/or internal Wind. This pattern most often occurs when the Kidney Yin has become so vacuous that it fails to nourish it's child, the Liver, leading to Liver yin vacuity and hyperactivity of the Liver Yang. Over time, the vigorous Heat generated from the hyperactive Yang will produce Wind which will rise to the head and cause such symtpoms as headache, dizziness, stiff neck, red face and tinnitus. This prescription should not be used for hypertension due to Yang vacuity.
