Long Gu (Sheng) - Mastodi Ossis Fossilia

Sweet, astringent, slightly cold, and heavy in weight, Fossilia Ossis Mastodi (long gu) enters the Heart, Liver, and Kidney channels. Interestingly, Medicinal Combining notes that it also "treats disorders of the Girdle Vessel." Astringency restrains and holds back to secure what is leaking out, while heaviness eliminates trepidation and anchors the floating yang, hence Fossilia Ossis Mastodi (long gu) restrains and secures the primal qi, calms the spirit, and inhibits loss and leakage. One of its special characteristics is its ability to secure the normal qi while not inhibiting the elimination of pathogenic qi. It is also noted for its effects in the treatment of seizures and epilepsy due to Liver qi rebelling upward carrying phlegm. Fossilia Ossis Mastodi (long gu) is often used when the yin is unable to control the yang, causing palpitations, insomnia with dream-disturbed sleep, palsy of the face, spasms of the limbs, restlessness, and dizziness and vertigo; or for the yang being unable to secure the yin.
