Alternative Names

This formula is simply a 50/50 combination of two other formulas, those being:

  1. Magnolia and Ginger Formula (Ping Wei San)
  2. Hoelen Five Herb Formula (Wu Ling San)


Cang Zhu 蒼术 atractylodes rhizome, cang shu Atractylodis Rhizoma

  • Dries dampness to address gurgling and bloating.

Hou Po 厚朴 magnolia bark Cortex Magnoliae Officinalis [use caution if pregnant]

  • Dries dampness and removes bloating and gurgling along with Cang Zhu above.

Chen Pi 陳皮 aged tangerine peel, citrus Citri reticulatae Pericarpium

  • Another famous herb for drying dampness and removing bloating and gurgling.

Da Zao 大棗 jujube, Chinese date Jujubae Fructus

Zhi Gan Cao 炙甘草 licorice root Radix Glycyrrhizae prep. [caution]

Sheng Jiang 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.

Ze Xie 澤瀉 alisma rhizome, water plantain Rhizoma Alismatis Orientalis [supports pregnancy]

  • 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.

Fu Ling 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.

Zhu Ling 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.

Bai Zhu 白术 , bai shu ovate atractylodes, (white) atractylodes rhizome [supports pregnancy]

  • 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).

Gui Zhi 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.
