Formula explanation
Forsythia and Scutellaria clear heat and resolves toxins but without damaging the spleen. Mix-fried Licorice, Astragalus, and Codonopsis all supplement the spleen and heart qi, thus quieting the spirit by nourishing it. Dang Gui, Polygonum Multiflorum, and Peony all nourish the blood and moisten dryness, harmonizing and emolliating the liver. Pinellia harmonizes the stomach, eliminates dampness, and transforms phlegm. Poria seeps dampness at the same time as it helps supplement the heart and spleen and quiet the spirit. Ophiopogon engenders fluids, nourishes stomach, lung, and heart yin, clears heat from those same viscera and bowels, and transforms phlegm. Citrus harmonizes the stomach and downbears counterflow, thus rectifying the qi. It also aids Pinellia and Poria in eliminating dampness and transforming phlegm. Mume aids Ophiopogon in engendering fluids. However, it also has a pronounced and specific effect of killing worms or parasites. This effect seems to be strengthened even more when Mume is combined with Perilla. This is an exterior-resolver, but that classification does not begin to do justice to this often overlooked medicinal. According to gu parasite theory, Perilla has a strong gu-killing, toxin-resolving effect which should not be underestimated. Mentha is acrid and warm is also an exterior-resolver. It courses the liver, clears heat, and resolves depression. According to gu parasite theory, it also is a specific for gu conditions. Likewise, so is Angelica Dahurica. It too is an exterior-resolver which is often not fully understood or appreciated by rank and file Chinese medical practitioners. Although it is described as being acrid and warm, nevertheless, it does treat damp heat conditions, such as intestinal damp heat, vaginal tract damp heat, and damp heat in the sinuses.
To get the most out of this treatment, the patient also needs to adhere to a yeast-free, sugar-free, clear bland diet for at least three months and better for 6-12 months.
