This [formula] is [for] wind-phlegm, also known as an upward disturbance of wind-phlegm. Phlegm occurs when dampness accumulates due to Spleen deficiency. Phlegm follows the resulting upward-rebellion of qi to the head where it veils the clear yang and disturbs the sensory orifices, manifesting as dizziness, vertigo, or headache. A distinctive feature of these head symptoms is that the head feels heavy and clouded. The stifling sensation in the chest, and the nausea or vomiting, are manifestations of phlegm obstructing the mechanisms of qi in the chest and epigastrium. (The latter symptom is also a sign of rebellious qi). This is another variation of Two-Cured Decoction (er chen tang). Those who overwork or overindulge in rich foods are more likely to develop dizziness due to upward disturbance of wind-phlegm. Both of these activities injure the Spleen and Stomach and impair their functions of transforming food. This leads to an accumulation of dampness, which often transforms into phlegm. Because the clear yang in such patients is weak, it is relatively easy for the phlegm to obstruct its rise. --Bensky: Chinese Herbal Medicine Formulas & Strategies.
