Since ancient times, the cognition of liver disease is generally “excess in majority and weakness in minority, heat in majority and cold in minority”, “there is excessive liver Yang and liver Qi, deficient Liver Yin and Liver blood”, less patients have liver Yang deficiency, therefore, warming Yang method is seldom applied. Nevertheless, regarding to the clinical practice, using the eliminating evil measures including clearing heat and relieving toxicity, cooling blood and promoting blood circulation etc may achieve some effect in the beginning phase, however, unsatisfactory treatment effect can be obtained for long term, the disease is easy to recrudesce and be difficult to cure. My experiences in applying warming Yang method for the treatment of liver disease are summarized in the following:
