to clear heat, and soothing the liver and regulating the
circulation of Qi to alleviate mental depression. It is an
important herb to treat syndromes caused by alternate attack of
pathogenic cold and heat on the Shaoyang channel and stagnation of
the liver-qi. With its relatively strong power of elevating Yang,
the herb is often used to treat Qi sinking in the middle Jiao.
