Bai Tou Weng Tang – clear Heat & detoxify bowels, cool blood & stop diarrhea

Bai Tou Weng Tang - Shang Han Lun

Bai Tou Weng (radix pulsatillae chinensis)…6g* [best herb to clear Damp-Heat and relieve Fire toxin for dysenteric disorders]

Huang Lian (rhizoma coptidis)…9g**

Huang Bai (cortex phellodendri)…9g**

Qin Pi (cortex fraxini)…9g***

Indications: Fire toxin in the stomach and intestines causing diarrhea with pain in the abdomen, tenesmus, burning anus, stool contains more blood than pus, T- red with yellow coat, P- wiry rapid.  This is when Damp-Heat or a toxin enters the Xue level, depending on the severity, the doses of these strong herbs may be altered.  In comparison to Shao Yao Tang, Bai Tou Weng Tang is better at clearing Heat and toxicity, but Shao Yao Tang can move Qi better so it is best used in situations where there is less Heat or toxicity but more Qi stagnation (pain and tenesmus). 

Bai Tou Weng Tang conditions translate into any toxic attack causing the above symptoms, i.e. amebic dysentery, bacillary dysentery, or other conditions such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease.
