Ear Ringing, Left (Yin) Loving Pills
Er Ming Zuo Ci Wan by Lanzhou Foguang Foci is used for chronic ear ringing associated with weakened kidney qi. Results are expected in cases of gradual ringing brought about by kidney weakness, particularly in the aged. Bupleurum Chai Hu helps to bring the formula toward the ear, while magnitite Chi Shi descends the rising yang energy back down to the kidneys; this reduces ear ringing. It is not particularly helpful for ear ringing due to trauma or nerve damage from loud noises.
This formula is a variation of Liu Wei Di Huang Wan.
