Plum Flower Eight Immortals Teapills (Mai Wei Di Huang Wan)


Plum Flower – Eight Immortals Teapills – Mai Wei Di Huang Wan

Plum Flower Eight Immortals Teapills or Mai Wei Di Huang Wan is a Chinese Herbal Medicine formula based off of the classic formula 6 Flavor Rehmannia (Liu Wei Di Huang Wan). It contains two additional herbs that direct its actions to the lungs and specifically treats Lung yin deficiency (i.e. a lack of cooling, moistening, nourishing fluids to the lungs).

It is commonly used to address chronic dry cough, possibly with dry throat, and dry nasal passages in the elderly as well as chronic, dry cough in those with such conditions as tuberculosis, HIV, diabetes, and lungs damaged/weakened by long-term cigarette smoking.

As this formula also addresses underlying Kidney yin deficiency, other signs that point toward the appropriate use of this formula include dizziness, vertigo, ringing of the ears, and experiencing subjective sensations of heat in the body.
