  In view of the difference in interior heat syndromes between qifen and xuefen, between warm-heat and summer-heat, between excess and deficiency, between zang and fu organs, prescriptions for clearing away heat are subdivided into prescriptions for clearing away heat from qifen, those for removing heat from ying fen and blood, those for clearing away heat and toxin, those for removing heat from zang-fu organs, those for eliminating asthenic heat, and those for clearing away summer-heat.

 

Ingredients of the prescriptions for clearing away heat herbs are mostly bitter in flavor and cool in property, therefore they should not be taken for a long time to prevent impairment of the stomach, and yin and yang. And drugs able to reinforce the spleen and stomach should be taken if necessary. Besides great cautions must be paid by patients with constitutional weakness of the spleen and stomach marked by poor appetite and loose stool. In case of excessive interior heat, the phenomenon "Ju Yao" may appear by which is meant the patient vomits immediately when taking decoctions of this kind. To relieve or eliminate this phenomenon, the patient may either take the decoction warm or add to it some ginger juice.

Prescriptions for removing heat from yingfen and blood are chiefly composed of drugs with the effect of clearing away heat from yingfen and nourishing yin, cooling blood and removing stasis, which are applicable to the syndrome of heat accumulating in yingfen and xuefen.

Prescriptions for removing heat from zang-fu organs are made up of drugs aimed at clearing away fire-heat from different zang or fu organs, and applicable to the syndrome of heat dominant in a certain zang or fu organ. Prescriptions for clearing away heat of deficiency type are chiefly composed of drugs with the effect of clearing away heat, nourishing yin and expelling pathogenic factors, and applicable to the syndrome of yin impairment due to excessive heat.
