|Siler & Coix Clearing Formula (1 oz)
Siler and Coix Clearing Formula focuses on Heat and toxicity in the Upper Burner and is an excellent formula for clearing inflammation and toxins specifically from the head and face. This prescription is drying and detoxifying and is most appropriate for Damp-Heat skin conditions that are red and weepy with exudate. Patients with this presentation have Liver and Stomach counterflow with Heat rising to the face and head and accompanying symptoms such as constipation, absence of sweating, scanty urination and excessive thirst. This prescription may be differentiated from Derma Wind Release because the latter focuses more on an exterior Wind-Heat or Dampness interacting with an internal condition of Damp-Heat. Siler and Coix Clearing Formula focuses more on skin eruptions from Heat and toxins in the Upper Burner caused by Liver and Stomach Heat counterflowing upwards.*
