This herb is usually used in support of the Lung functions. It has a lifting quality that is actually used to guide other herbs to the Lungs. However it is this lifting quality that makes it beneficial in the treatment of diarrhea too. Chinese medicine theory can consider diarrhea too much “down”. Western medicine would more likely consider this intestinal movements that are too fast. This herb helps regulate that downward motion by adding a little bit of “up” energy to slow the “down” movement of the intestines.
