Bai Tou Weng
(radix pulsatillae chinensis)
6g* [best herb to clear Damp-Heat and relieve Fire toxin for
Huang Lian (rhizoma coptidis)
Huang Bai (cortex phellodendri)
Qin Pi (cortex fraxini)
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 Crohns disease.
