What it is:
root + spring's Chinese Herbal Soup Mix for Detoxification is for those that have accumulated too much heat in their system, something the Chinese call "yeet hay". Literally meaning "hot air", yeet hay is a term used in Chinese medicine to indicate a state of being too "hot" internally and it is brought upon by eating lots of fried, greasy, or unhealthy foods.
The symptoms can vary depending on how much of a detox you need. If you are only slightly hot inside, you will probably have a slight sore throat and some acne/pimples but if you are overly hot, mouth sores and nose bleeds are not uncommon.
