Our clinical staff have made the following notes, regarding bai he gu jin wan.
In TCM the Lung qi is reflected by the strength of the voice and ability to breath deep and easy while the Lung yin is responsible for keeping the lungs and throat/nose moistened. Over use of the lungs from chronic excessive speaking/singing, smoking, and poor air quality can all affect both the lung qi and yin. The kidney system helps to anchor the lungs, and yin in general is required to moisten and lubricate the tissues so this formula also has a mild function to strengthen the kidney yin.
