Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Therapeutic Actions of Da Qing Ye:

Da Qing Ye clears heat and eliminates toxins but is not drying and therefore is an excellent choice to clear heat and toxins from someone with yin deficiency in their pattern of imbalance;  it clears heat-toxins externally (for use when wind-heat attacks manifest as sore throat and low-grade fever) and internally as well (for use in a wide variety of febrile conditions where the heat has sunken down deeper into the body to intensify the fever).

Da Qing Ye cools heat at the xue (blood) level when heat is forcing the blood out the vessels (to treat such clinical presentations as macula, pupura, hematemesis (vomiting up blood), and epistaxis (nosebleeds)).
