Tong Xie Yao Fang soothes Liver Qi, tonifies Spleen, stops painful diarrhea

 

Tong Xie Yao Fang Jing Yue Quan Shu (powder doses)

Chao Bai Zhu (dry fried rhizome atractylodis macrocephalae)90g

Chao Bai Shao (dry fried radix paeoniae lactiflorae)60g

Chao Chen Pi (dry fried pericarpoim citri reticulatae)45g

Fang Feng (radix ledebouriellae divaricatae)30-60g

 

Indications: Liver overacting on Spleen causing deficiency, recurrent abdominal pain, borborygmus (seen as Wind in the abdomen, hence the use of Fang Feng which also directs the other herbs to the Liver and Spleen producing a direct affect on the diarrhea), painful diarrhea (the pain comes with the urge to go to the bathroom and subsides after the bowel movement), T- thin white coating (showing the diarrhea is not because of excess Damp), P- wiry thin.

It is believed by most that the condition of Spleen deficiency comes first, although the problem recurs during times of Liver Qi stagnation (due to stress or emotional/mental factors).
