Disease Mechanisms
The qi moves the blood. If the qi moves, the blood moves. If the qi stops, the blood stops. If there is enduring liver depression, then there is blood stasis. If there is enduring blood stasis, stasis will enter the network vessels. Liver depression is inversely proportional to a sufficiency of blood, spleen qi, and kidney yang. If any of these are vacuous and insufficient, then liver depression will be worse. In addition, blood stasis prevents the creation of new blood and blood is the mother of the qi. Hence blood stasis is often complicated by or accompanies qi and/or blood vacuity.

The Nei Jing (Inner Classic) says that by 35, women become spleen vacuous, while Western women are even more prone to spleen vacuity due to faulty diet, over-taxation, under-exercise, too much thinking, and unfilled desires which damage the liver. The liver becomes depressed and replete and then invades the spleen which becomes vacuous and weak. The spleen and kidneys are mutually rooted. Spleen qi vacuity eventually leads to kidney yang vacuity. Many, if not most, Western women exhibit symptoms of some kidney yang vacuity by the early to mid 40s.

This formula takes into account all the above interrelated theories and disease mechanisms. Because endometriosis worsens during the mid 30s and on into the 40s (probably due to an autoimmune ovaritis), this formula is a good one for treating endometriosis and secondary infertility due to endometriosis in Western women who are 35 years or older and who exhibit a combination of vacuity and repletion patterns.

Formula explanation
Within this formula, Codonopsis, Astragalus, Atractylodes Macrocephala, and mix-fried Licorice all fortify the spleen and supplement or boost the qi. Peony, Dang Gui, and cooked Rehmannia all nourish the blood and enrich essence as well as emolliate and harmonize the liver. Cinnamon and Aconite both invigorate and warm yang. Angelica Dahurica, Angelica Pubescens, Notopterygium, Ledebouriella, and Ligusticum Sinensis dispel and eliminate wind, cold, and dampness, free the flow of impediment, and stop pain. Persica, Carthamus, Dang Gui, and Ligusticum Wallichium quicken the blood and transform stasis. Bupleurum and Cimicifuga upbear yang and disinhibit the qi mechanism. To some extent, all the wind, cold, damp medicinals also help upbear clear yang. Angelica Dahurica and Ligusticum Sinensis are a very strong pain-relieving combination. Licorice also acts to harmonize all the medicinals in this formula.
