This an extremely useful and basic formula used for all sorts of menstruation and other problems. It is often modified or used as the core of other formulas. Many articles, if not books have been written about it but here is a quick way I look at it.
It has 4 ingredients that each have a distinct effect on the blood.
Si Wu Tang can be seen to move in all 4 directions – Up, down, in and out. Up (Chuan Xiong), Down (Shu Di), In (Bai Shao) and out (Dang Gui).
It is a very “elegant” formula. The Dang Gui and Chuan Xiong move the down and inward tendencies of the Shu Di and Bai Shao. Shu Di and Bai Shao contain what might be created by the more moving qualities of the Dang Gui and Chuan Xiong.
This formula should NOT be used on its own when there is heavy bleeding either through trauma or menstruation.
Dang Gui 當歸 tangkuei, Chinese angelica root Radix Angelicae Sinensis [supports pregnancy]
Chuan Xiong 川芎 Sichuan lovage root, cnidium, chuanxiong root Rhizoma Ligustici Chuanxiong
Bai Shao 白芍 white peony root, peony Paeoniae Radix alba [supports pregnancy]
Shu Di Huang 熟地黄 cooked rehmannia root, prepared Chinese foxglove root Rehmanniae Radix preparata [supports pregnancy]
This formula can be used to support health with or without symptoms. If symptoms are present, take 1 level teaspoon of the powder (8 capsules) three times daily. When symptoms are not present, take 1/2 level teaspoon (4 capsules), two times daily. Empty stomach is best for efficient absorption, but not essential. [More…]
