Details of Modified Shen Ling Bai Du San
This formula is a modification of Shen Ling Bai Zhu San . We have modified it for accompanying nausea and more diarrhea control. The formula may take a week or two to have an effect and may be taken safely for over a month to fully resolve the issue.
This is appropriate for chronic “Spleen Qi Deficiency”
The following is a description of Shen Ling Bai Zhu San.
“It is an amazing mixture that can be used long-term digestive issues because of their slow tonification of digestive process, but it also includes some quick acting ingredients as well.
If your diarrhea is a chronic condition lasting more than six months, consider a lower dosage but get enough to last a month or two. If your diarrhea is a more recent arrival, you can take a higher dosage to knock out this condition before it has a chance to become chronic.”
Our “Bible” of herbal formulas, Formulas and Strategies, says:
In such cases (of Diarrhea) , the spleen qi has become deficient and the intestines have lost their stability and capacity to absorb. This results in unremitting diarrhea to the point of incontinence….Long term diarrhea not only leads to deficiency of the spleen qi and yang, but also invariably involves the kidneys. This aggravates the diarrhea, which further injures the spleen and kidneys, which in turns worsens the diarrhea, and so on in a vicious circle….
Shen Ling Baizhu San (Ginseng and Atractylodes Formula), a well-known formula for spleen qi deficiency and diarrhea, is described in Formulas and Strategies as indicated for “loose stools or diarrhea, reduced appetite, weakness of the extremities, weight loss, distention and a stifling sensation in the chest and epigastrum, pallid and wan complexion.”

This herb is usually used in support of the Lung functions. It has a lifting quality that is actually used to guide other herbs to the Lungs. However it is this lifting quality that makes it beneficial in the treatment of diarrhea too. Chinese medicine theory can consider diarrhea too much “down”. Western medicine would more likely consider this intestinal movements that are too fast. This herb helps regulate that downward motion by adding a little bit of “up” energy to slow the “down” movement of the intestines.
