Indications: chronic cold hands and feet (to
the touch and patient) due to a lack of Yang warming action. It is said that this is Cold in the
meridians in people who are Blood deficient.
T- pale with white coat, P- deep weak thin.
Gui Zhi is special as it guides herbs to the upper limbs and opens the
blood vessels. With Bai Shao, Gui Zhi warms the
meridians and expels Cold, and harmonizes the Ying and Wei levels thus
regulating Yin and Yang.
Mu Tong strengthens the effects by encouraging the flow in the meridians
and blood vessels.
formula can also be used in cases of joint pain, irregular menses, abdominal
cold pain, and lower back cold pain.
the way this formula differs from Si Ni Tang is
that there is Cold in the meridians with an underlying Blood deficiency, this results in Cold hands and feet only, not the whole
limb. Si Ni
Tang is used when there is pathogenic Yin Cold generated from Yang deficiency
causing cold limbs, tiredness, & watery diarrhea.
also be compared to Si Ni San which is used in a
Hot type collapse disorder where the fingers and toes are cold,
there is aversion to heat, irritability, insomnia, constipation, dark urine,
and other internal heat signs.
