Peaceful Sunset™ is a formula to drain Liver-Fire, cool and invigorate Blood, subdue Wind and resolve Phlegm in the elderly. This combination of patterns is common in the elderly because of the interaction between Phlegm and Blood stasis. In the elderly, Liver-Wind is often associated with Phlegm too: as Wind rises towards the upper part, Phlegm follows it. The tongue and pulse are quite distinctive and if we see such a tongue in an elderly person we should actively resolve Phlegm, clear Heat, cool Blood and invigorate Blood.
