Dandruff

[Concept]

Dandruff is sebrrheic dermatitis which is caused from the Three Organ problems, not dispersing of Qi and Blood by Lung Qi and Kidney Yang. Lungs functions are to control the skin-hair, and 'the pole'(sweating gland). According to TCM, the lung sends the blood and body fluid by pumping through all of the body. Kidney receives the Qi which, is coming from Lungs, also Kidneys transform Yin(Blood,body fluid) into urine by filtering. If they lose their function, can create dandruff and skin trouble.

From Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, it is called "Bai xien feng" which, laterally means "white scale wind"; it usually happens on the head. Also it happens on the skin, specially elbow knee, ear and, nape.

[Manifestation]
