Herbal Formula Functional Grouping
These formulas generally involve the restraint of leakages from the body (urine, sperm, leukorrhea, blood, sweat, etc.) These leakages can arise from heat in the body pushing things out or interrupting functions or from deficiency that reduces the bodies ability to "hold" in the substance. Formulas within this category are generally used to resolve specific symptoms in specific areas and then other formulas/treatments may be used for further management. Proper diagnosis is key with these conditions as formulas from this category should not be used when the conditions arise from excess syndromes.
