Formula explanation:
Ginseng, Atractylodes Macrocephala, and Atractylodes (a.k.a. Atractylis) fortify the spleen and supplement the qi. Polyporus and Alisma seep dampness, while the two Atractylodes dry dampness. In addition, the Shen Nong Ben Cao (Divine Farmer’s Materia Medica) says that Polyporus treats gu toxins. Dang Gui both nourishes and quickens the blood. Scutellaria, Artemisia Capillaris, and Sophora clear heat and eliminate dampness. Artemisia Capillaris has some ability to also course the liver and rectify the qi. Cimicifuga and Pueraria both upbear clear yang. Pueraria also works with Notopterygium and Ledebouriella to dispel wind damp and free the flow of impediment. Further, Pueraria nourishes stomach yin, thus protecting fluids from damage due to the use of windy, exterior resolving medicinals. Anemarrhena nourishes the kidneys and clears vacuity heat, while Licorice clears heat and harmonizes the other medicinals while protecting the stomach.
