Asian pears are known for their cooling effect in TCM. They are also used in TCM to detoxify, regenerate body fluids, dissolve mucus, quench thirst, relieve restlessness, promote urination, treat constipation, alleviate retina pain, heal skin lesions, promote overall skin health, lubricate the throat, relieve a cough, and heal a hoarse throat. This is great for people that generally feel dry, or feel hot at night.
