Er Long Zuo Ci Wan (Pian) Indications for Use
Used for deficiency of Kidney or Liver YIN, with consequent Liver YANG rising. In TCM, the Kidney, has many energetic functions, which don't exist in the view of Western medicine. In TCM, the Kidney stores the Qi, and supplies Qi to all the other organs in the body. It stores and generates both the Yin and Yang Qi. T
In TCM, all the organs are considered to have orifices. It is said that the Kidney opens to the ears. If the Kidney Qi gets low, ear-ringing can appear as a warning, like when the battery of your smoke detector is low, a warning is emitted.
Other signs of low Kidney Qi are: weakness in the lower back or limbs, fatigue, low libido, urinary Incontinence, urinary frequency, and hearing loss. Tinnitus and hearing loss occur more often in the elderly, though they can effect people at any age.
Kidney depletion can occur because of age, exhaustion, or excessive sexual activity.
It should be noted that there are other causes of ear ringing or hearing loss. Er Long Zuo Ci Wan is suitable for tinnitus cause by floating YANG, which stems from kidney deficiency. It is not effective for tinnitus or hearing loss caused by trauma, exposure to loud noises, or for Gall Bladder Channel Damp Heat, all of which have a more sudden onset. For Gall Bladder Channel related ear problems see LONG DAN XI GAN WAN.

Er Long Zuo Ci Wan Safety
Rehmannia (SHU DI HUANG), one of the principal ingredients, can be difficult to digest, causing bloating and loose stool. If this occurs, take the remedy with food rather than on an empty stomach. If this fails, the formula should be modified with the addition of herb that counteract this effect.
Discontinue this (and most tonics) during common cold, as tonics could prolong these acute respiratory conditions.
