Kidney Cooling

Kidney Cooling

  • What it's used for

    Herbal Creatures™ Kidney Cooling contains herbs traditionally used in cases of general weakness and irritability in a thin and dry body type.

    A blend of herbs used for:

    • Irritability and restlessness, heat aversion, desire for cool surfaces/places
    • Excessive panting (especially at night)
    • Dry faeces, short urination, increased thirst and appetite
    Diabetes mellitus, nephrotic syndrome, hypertension, feline hyperthyroidism and canine hyperadrenocorticism (Cushing’s disease)
  • How it works

    Kidney Cooling is based on a Chinese herbal formula called Zhi Bai Di Huang Wan, used to treat animals suffering from weakness, irritability and heat aversion, most often with an underlying chronic illness. This formula is very similar to the ‘Kidney Support’ formula, with two additional herbs to address signs of heat.

    Traditional Understanding

    The main symptoms that would lead to the selection of this formula over ‘Kidney Support’ are excessive panting (especially at night), dryness, insomnia, and restlessness, increased to ravenous appetite, increased thirst and irritability. These are all symptoms of ‘deficiency heat’ which arises from an underlying weakness of the Liver or Kidney. The base formula, Liu Wei Di Huang Wan or ‘Kidney support’ is traditionally used to support the function of these organs.
