Oriental Wormwood Decoction yin chen hao tang

[SOURCE]: Treatise on Cold-Attack

[INGREDIENTS]: Oriental wormwood 30g,  Capejasmine fruit 15g,  Rhubarb 9g

[DIRECTIONS]: Decoct all the herbs in water for oral administration.

[EFFECTS]:Clearing away heat and excreting dampness to clear jaundice.

[INDICATIONS]: Jaundice due to damp-heat marked by bright yellow colora­tion of the skin and eyes, just like orange color, slight fullness sensation in the ab­domen, thirst, disturbance in urination, yellow and greasy tongue coating and deep, rapid pulse.

[ANALYSIS OF FORMULA]: It is a basic formula to treat jaundice due to damp-heat. Oriental wormwood is used in large dosage as a principal herb in this formula. It is good at clearing away stagnated heat in the liver and gallbladder and excreting dampness to clear jaundice. Capejasmine fruit as an assistant herb clears obstruction in the triple-jiao, disperses heat and dries dampness via diuresis. Rhu­barb as an adjuvant herb purges heat, induces defecation, clears the intestines and stomach and benefits the gallbladder, relieves damp-heat via bowel movement.

This formula is used for yang type jaundice characterized by bright yellow eyes and skin just like orange color.

Today it is widely used for syndrome of yang type jaundice in acute infectious icteric hepatitis, cholecystitis, cholelithiasis, leptospirosis, etc.
