Damp Heat in Mind is a TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) herbal blend that helps with encephalitis and meningoencephalitis in dogs, cats, and horses.
The Western Medical indications for this herbal blend are encephalitis and meningoencephalitis. The Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine indications are excess Heat in the Qi or Ying stage, paresis, paralysis, prolonged high fever, restlessness, seizure, a pulse that is thready, rapid, or weak, and a tongue that is deep red or pale.
At our clinic, pets often receive an Eastern exam (Traditional Chinese Medicine) in combination with the standard veterinary exam. Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy is very different than our standard Western medical philosophy. Traditional Chinese Medicine focuses on balance and finding the cause of the problem rather than simply masking symptoms with prescription medicines. Through Eastern examination techniques, we can choose herbal blends that will both treat symptoms and at the same time correct the imbalances in your pet’s body that are causing the symptoms. This herb is only one of the many TCM herbal blends available for our doctors to choose from based on the results of the Eastern exam.
