Details of Magnolia and Hoelen Combination
Fu ling helps you excrete edema and excess fluids.
This formula is simply a 50/50 combination of two other formulas, those being:
Magnolia and Ginger Formula (Ping Wei San)
Hoelen Five Herb Formula (Wu Ling San)
蒼术 atractylodes rhizome, cang shu Atractylodis Rhizoma
Dries dampness to address
gurgling and bloating.
厚朴 magnolia bark Cortex Magnoliae Officinalis [
use caution if pregnant]
Dries dampness and removes
bloating and gurgling along with Cang Zhu above.
陳皮 aged tangerine peel, citrus Citri reticulatae Pericarpium
Another famous herb for drying dampness and removing
bloating and gurgling.
大棗 jujube, Chinese date Jujubae Fructus
炙甘草 licorice root Radix Glycyrrhizae prep. [
生薑 fresh ginger rhizome Zingiberis Rhizoma
The three herbs described above are known in American Chinese medicine schools as “the three candies”. They’re often used together. Date, licorice and ginger and are delicious like candy, but they’re also really good at
waking up the Stomach so that it doesn’t generate any more dampness.
澤瀉 alisma rhizome, water plantain Rhizoma Alismatis Orientalis [
This herb’s name translates into English as “marsh drain” and is a favorite for
promoting urination to remove stagnant turbid water that may be collecting in the body. While promoting urination is the key function of this herb, its secondary goal is to eliminate “kidney fire” which is a term that applies in this context to nocturnal emissions.
茯苓 sclerotium of tuckahoe, China root, hoelen, Indian bread Poria Cocos
Another herb that
supports urinary flow, but it is also focused specifically on extra fluids that are trapped in the stomach and intestines leading to really loud gurgling or bloating. This herb also has a calming influence on the heart (meaning one’s emotions) and a supporting influence on the digestion.
豬苓 polyporus Polyporus umbellatus
Another herb that facilitates the
smooth passage of urine. This herb is stronger than Fu Ling above, but has no other functions.
白术 , bai shu ovate atractylodes, (white) atractylodes rhizome [
Another herb that facilitates the passage of urine, and like Fu Ling above has some other functions including
supporting the efficiency of the digestion (where the dampness that this formula addresses mostly originates).
桂枝 (Saigon) cinnamon twig, cassia twig Ramulus Cinnamomi Cassiae
This herb’s inclusion in this formula harkens back to theory that arose around the year 200. This herb is said to support “qi hua” (chee wuah) which in this context talks about how the kidneys produce urine. According to modern biomedical theory, the kidneys produce about two liters of urine each hour, but they reabsorb (or “reuptake”) most of that fluid, leaving only a concentrated urine behind which is then sent to the bladder to await excretion. This herb regulates that reuptake function of the kidneys which means that it
promotes urination when there’s too much fluid in the body, and it promotes the reuptake when there is too much urine passing through the kidneys. Tastes good too, it’s cinnamon twig.
