Ren shen (ginseng) strengthens multiple organ systems.

What’s it mean to “regulate the middle”? In Chinese medical theory, they break the abdomen and all its internal organs into thirds. The middle third is associated with the digestive organs and functions. So, regulating the middle means that this formula targets cold digestion with warm herbs that awaken the digestion and eliminate spastic pain aggravated by cold food or weather.

  • When the “middle” isn’t working right, the outcome is dampness. Dampness is like saying that there’s too much fluids in the Stomach and Intestines. This herb helps to dry up that dampness that is presumed to be there in the wake of cold in the “middle”.

  • Licorice root is added to many Chinese herbal formulas in order to harmonize the ingredients. Gan cao translates to “sweet herb” and like the addition of a sweet person in a room full of opinionated people this herb’s sweetness helps everybody just get along.
