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).
