Anhidrosis aka non-sweating occurs when the horse loses the ability to sweat and is a common condition of sport horses during the hot humid summer. New Xiang Ru San is a blend of Chinese herbs designed for horses with anhidrosis to be used in addition to electrolytes and environmental management.
For more info on anhidrosis with environmental and food therapy recommendations check out Dr. Wendy's blog.
In TCVM, the Heart controls the sweat glands and the Lung controls the exterior of the body and the Wei Qi (immune system). The Yin and Yang balance controls the body temperature. The Yin is like the air conditioner while the Yang is like the furnace. Summer Heat is one of the 6 pathogens in TCVM and can damage the Heart and Lung Yin so we view anhidrosis as a Heart and Lung Yin deficiency with Summer Heat.
New Xiang Ru San is Dr. Xie's Herbal Formula made specifically for horses with anhidrosis.
