This is a strong formula for tonifying (increasing) kidney Qi. It is used for those who feel cold and may be older, have congenital issues or otherwise recovering from a illness. It contains Fu Zi which is used to warm the entire body (not just the hands and feet). A person who needs this will be tired or tired and agitated. It is often used for continual vaginal discharge that is white (not yellow) or urinary incontinence. This formula is not to be taken lightly and my preference is that you should take this only if recommended by a qualified herbalist.
