Coptis and Magnolia Bark Drink (Lian Po Yin)

Details of Coptis and Magnolia Bark Drink

Huang Lian (Rx. Coptis) is often used for a fullness or stuffiness right below the sternum.

This is one of those amazing Chinese herb recipes that have yet to be fully appreciated in the West. It is for damp-heat. Many people in developed nations are hot and damp. You can see it on their faces, or rather in their faces. People with red swollen faces generally have damp-heat in their body. This is one of many formulas for exactly that condition and of course all the symptoms that arise from that condition.

About this formula

Recently studied as a digestive aid called PHY906 (Huang Qin Tang) in those undergoing Western drug therapy.

Huang Qin Tang was traditionally used for gastrointestinal distress and detoxifying the intestines when resulting in burning crampy diarrhea with a strong odor. However it was not assumed that this diarrhea was due to an infection in the intestines, rather a toxicity issue in other locations of the body, specifically the “Shao Yang pivot.”

Citrus and Crataegus Formula (Bao He Wan)

Shan Zha or Hawthorn Fruit helps digest meat and lower cholesterol.

“Digest The Mess”

This formula is called a “digestive” formula in Chinese medicine. This says that it helps the body digest. This means the formula is for sluggish movement from the stomach down through the intestines.

This helps you digest foods that are difficult to digest.

Now, this formula only does half the job. Obviously, you’ll want to pay attention to what you’re eating and look into finding out what is not easily digested and of course eating less of that.

Foods that are difficult to digest include greasy, fatty, deep-friend, dairy, meaty things. If your restaurant has a take-out counter, you may be eating foods that are tasty, but ridiculously unhealthy. I’m guessing that I’m not telling you anything new on this one.

Not everybody is VERY sensitive to dairy. This milk issue causing problems may be unique to those with a lactose intolerance. This often runs in genetic pools. Many Asians do not digest dairy well and so it may be that dairy is more of a problem for those who are lactose intolerant only.

When there is sloppy, sluggish, sticky, smeary stools with a strong odor this is the formula for you. This can show up looking like either diarrhea because the stools are not well-formed, or constipation because they are sluggish and difficult to get out of the body.

The “Bao He Wan” tongue has a thick and greasy coat.

Bupleurum and Peony Formula (jia wei xiao yao san)

Details of Bupleurum and Peony Formula
Bupleurum unsticks what is stuck.

Bupleurum unsticks what is stuck.

This is our most requested formula. It is really good for many forms of stress, frustration, anger and PMS.

When the (Chinese concept of the) Liver is out of balance, its function of ensuring the free-flow of qi is compromised. This free-flow of qi is many neurological functions in biomedical terms. Where there is stagnation, there is often heat. The can cause one to get angry, frustrated, or give rise to PMS.

One of the cardinal signs for Xiao Yao or Jia Wei Xiao Yao is when a person gets really angry, really suddenly over something that in reality is very small. In other words, we keep something bottled up until a little thing “sets us off”. Most of the time we use Jia Wei Xiao Yao because it clears more heat than Xiao Yao. And anger often translates as heat.

“Jia Wei” means “added ingredients (lit:flavors) and so Jia Wei is Xiao Yao with those two extra ingredients. Jia Wei Xiao Yao is Rambling Powder (Xiao Yao San) plus two herbs to “cool the blood”.

This formula also contains some Dang Gui and Bai Shao which build the blood. For that reason women especially gravitate to Jia Wei and regular Xiao Yao Wan. (Because in Chinese Medicine, women are all about the blood.)
