Golden Book by Plum Flower is a comprehensive Chinese formula recommended for imbalances caused by yang deficiency and a lack of Qi.
The Chinese believe that there should be a balance in the body between yin (internal fluids) and yang (fire of life). Yin and yang are equal and opposing forces that should be in harmony for optimal health. When either yin or yang becomes too dominant (or deficient), an imbalance of the body can result.
Yang deficiency is often associated with a lack of qi, and is the result of too much yin/too little yang. Chinese herbalists maintain that kidney qi/energy can be replenished through an active lifestyle, healthy diet and kidney yang enhancing tonics such as Jin Gui She Qi Wan (Golden Book).
