Expel Water Retention came out of “Treatise on Febrile Diseases” by Zhang Zhongjing in the late Eastern Han Dynasty. It has the effect of inducing urination to remove Water and Damp Retention, warming Yang and Qi to transport Water and Dampness. It is indicated for Water Retention Syndrome. The Water Retention Syndromes of Bladder referring to “Treatise on Febrile Disease”, is a series of symptoms caused by unfavourable transport of Water by the Bladder. This is resulting in Stagnation of Water in the body, such as oedema caused by water overflowing to the skin, vomiting caused by Stagnation of Water in the Stomach; watery diarrhoea caused by Water Stagnation in the Large Intestine; vertigo caused by Water overflowing and blocking head; cough and shortness of breath by Water Stagnating in the Lungs; palpitation by Water in Lung overflowing to the Heart.
