Differences from Classical Antecedent

Tonifies Kidney-Yang, opens the Mind’s orifices, lifts mood.

This formula addresses Qi deficiency and secondarily from Qi stagnation. “Obstruction” of the Mind occurs when severely stagnant Qi, stagnant Blood or Phlegm cloud the Mind’s orifices.

However, obstruction of the Mind’s orifices may also occur in milder. This formula is primarily for Mind Weakened. However, it is also for Mind Obstructed and, for this reason, it contains Yuan Zhi and Shi Chang Pu to open the Mind’s orifices.

Ren Shen, Huang Qi and Bai Zhu tonify and lift Qi. In particular, Huang Qi lifts Qi in combination with Sheng Ma and Chai Hu;

  • Dang Gui Shen nourishes Blood;
  • Chen Pi prevents a possible “sticky” action of the Qi tonic;
  • Yuan Zhi and Shi Chang Pu open the Mind’s orifices;
  • Bai He and Wu Wei Zi nourish the Lungs;
  • Qing Pi moves Qi;
  • Du Zhong tonifies Kidney-Yang and strengthens the will-power
