Liu Wei Di Huang Wan by KPC Herbs is one of the most regarded ancient Chinese herbal formulas. It is widely used to nourish Yin of the Yin-Yang. In TCM, a diminished Yin manifests as weakness in the lower back, a hot feeling of the body and a pale complexion.
Liu Wei Di Huang Wan can replenish Yin due to the Yin insufficiency of the kidney. The kidney is the innate foundation of all organs with respect to the Yin-Yang principles. When the kidney is diminished functionally, many other organs show malfunctions. It is important to maintain the kidney in a good state. This explains why many symptoms seemingly unrelated to the kidney may be relieved by restoring the kidney Yin-Yang.
