Details of Major Construct the Middle Decoction
Baked ginger makes you feel all warm inside.
This is recently been a best seller for SIBO sufferers. If you are taking this, start with a low dosage and work your way up to best meet your comfort level. I make no claims for helping all forms of SIBO with this but many people seem to have found this formula useful.
Below is the traditional description:
In Chinese medicine, the so-called “middle” refers to the digestive organs and upper abdomen. This formula then is for abdominal pain that is aggravated by pressure or touch. Usually this will be aggravated by cold foods or weather because there’s cold inside causing the pain.
We have a saying that when there is flow (of qi, blood, food, whatever) there is no pain. However when there is pain, there is no flow (of qi, blood, etc.) Just as in nature, cold will freeze things and prevent movement. When this takes place internally, it hurts a LOT!
Fortunately, we have the Major Construct the Middle Decoction for that!

Malt sugar is sold in a syrup form which you are welcome to track down and use, but because it isn’t available in extract powder form, it isn’t included in the formula. If we added syrup to your formula, that would be VERY messy by the time it got to you.)
