Six Flavor by Plum Flower helps "yin deficiency". The Chinese have relied on Liu Wei Di Huang Wan for centuries to tonify and restore yin.
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), disharmony in the body can occur.
Yin deficiency is the result of too much yang/too little yin and is characterized by feelings of excess fire/heat and diminished vital fluids.
Western society is characterized by overly-active lifestyles, full of fire and stress - leaving little room for rest. This type of lifestyle is often associated with yin deficiency. The end result is often a feeling of being "burned out", which is another way of saying that the yang/fire may be crowding out the body's yin/fluids, which are necessary to nourish the body's vital organs.
