1 Soothing the Troubled Spirit with Blue Poppy Originals Formulas with Honora Lee Wolfe Our ongoing interest in spirit Western practitioners of Chinese medicine have always had more interest in diseases of the essence spirit than one sees in China. All of us may have different definitions of what we mean by spirit. So 1

2 Definitions of Spirit in CM Spirit refers to the outward manifestations of the body s life activities, including the manifestations of both normal physiological and patho-physiological activities Brightness of eyes; Color & luster of the complexion Strength & clarify of speech Regularity of respiration Good appetite and digestive functions Ability to think, act, and speak clearly and normally Definitions of Spirit Spirit is heart qi when heart qi functions as psyche Spirit is nothing other than an accumulation of qi in the heart constructed and nourished by yin and blood (*adequate blood allows the heart to do its job of housing the spirit) 2

3 Acupuncture and Essence- Spirit disorders. Acupuncture has an immediate and visible ability to rectify the qi of various organs and tissues in the body. As such, in any essence-spirit disorder that involves mostly recifying qi, acupuncture is greatly helpful. Herbs and Essence-spirit disorders When there is either: Excessive heat harassing the heart Insufficiency of yin/blood not allowing the heart to do its job of housing spirit Phlegm or blood stasis blocking the heart qi (and therefore spirit) from connecting with the outside world Herbal intervention can be helpful! 3

4 Classic formulas Xiao Yao San (rambling powder) Yi Gan San (restrain the liver powder) Xue Fu Zhu Yu Tang (blood mansion dispel stasis decoction) Tian Wang Bu Xin Dan (heavenly mansion supplement the heart elixir) Suan Zao Ren Tang (pogostemon correct the qi powder) Blue Poppy Originals Designed to treat the most commonly seen combinations of patterns in Western patients with various common conditions Because there is such an interest in psychoemotional conditions in the West, Bob Flaws created these formulas for Western practitioners and our patients. 4

5 Modified 11 Flavors Warm the Gallbladder Therapeutic actions: supplements the heart and fortifies the spleen, courses the liver and resolves depression, clears heat and transforms phlegm, quiets the spirit. Possible indications: Insomnia, disturbing dreams or nightmares, heart palpitations, anxiety, depression, PMS, indigestion, sinusitis, headache and TMJ syndrome, plum pit qi, easily startled. Modified 11 Flavors Warm the Gallbladder Ye Jiao Teng and Yuan Zhi nourishes the heart and calms the spirit Suan Zao Ren does the above and also nourishes liver blood, stops abnormal sweating, clears vacuity heat to some extent as well. Zhu Ru, Ban Xia, and Chen Pi resolve phlegm and clear phlegm-heat, aided by Huang Lian. 5

6 Clear & Calm Therapeutic actions: Fortifies the spleen and boosts qi, resolves liver depression and out-thrusts heat, downbears heart fire, seeps dampness, calms the heart and quiets and spirit. Possible indications: There may be hot urinary symptoms, but also irritability, anxiety, palpitations, insomnia, restlessness, possible red-tipped tongue with sores on the tip. Clear & Calm Dan Zhu Ye is specific for clearing heat from the heart, again helped by a little dose of Huang Lian and Sheng Ma. It also addresses hot painful urination. Chi Shao with Bai Shao stop pain when there is both blood vacuity and stasis at the same time. Along with Sheng Di Huang it also clears heat Deng Xin Cao clears heat from the heart and with Che Qian Zi helps drain damp heat through urination and stops hot, urgent, painful urination. 6

7 Resolve and Stabilize Therapeutic Actions: courses the liver and rectifies the qi, quickens the blood and transforms stasis, clears heat, nourishes the blood, and quiets the spirit. Possible indications: recalcitrant, nonhealing insomnia, possibly emotional depression and anxiety Use in pregnant women ONLY if the patient s pattern warrants it. Resolve and Stabilize E Jiao and Suan Zao Ren both nourish blood; one the liver and one the heart. E Jiao enriches kidney yin and Suan Zao Ren enriches heart yin. Dan Shen both quickens and nourishes the blood and clears heat from the blood layer. He Huan Pi also quickens blood, but at the same time calms the spirit. A small dose of Chuan Niu Xi and Chuan Xiong further quickens the blood. Xia Ku Cao cools liver heat and Chai Hu relieves the surface, together out-thrusting depressive heat. Long Gu with Hu Po quiet the spirit and stop palpitations. 7

8 Ultimate Immortals Since perimenopausal syndrome often include a number of possible psycho-emotional complaints, this formula addresses several of those quite nicely, including: Agitation and restlessness Insomnia Depression and irritability Ultimate Immortals Therapeutic actions: nourishes the blood and enriches yin, supplements kidneys and invigorates yang, clears heat and resolves depression, fortifies the spleen and supplements the heart, downbears counterflow, settles and quiets the spirit, astringes the surface to stop sweating 8

9 Ultimate Immortals Possible indications: hot flashes, night sweats, heart palpitations, anxiety, depression, fatigue, insomnia, and irritability Spirit-quieting medicinals include Gan Cao, Fu Ling, Long Gu, Mu Li, Fu Xiao Mai, He Huan Pi, Ye Jiao Teng, and Da Zao. Other Formulas Any formula that clears heat, harmonizes the liver-spleen, supplements the qi and nourishes the blood, and recitifies qi stagnation and quickens blood stasis, will give an automatic improvement to a patient s psycho-emotional condition. In the Blue Poppy Originals line, there are several other formulas that do these things in various amounts and various ways. 9

10 For example Cystiquell courses the liver, rectifies the qi, clears heat and eliminates dampness, supplements qi and quiets the spirit Supplement Yin and Change and Enrich both harmonize the liver-spleen, nourish blood and quiet the spirit Anti-Nue Boost the Qi supplements qi, nourishes yin, clears heat, and recifies the qi. A reminder If you have patients who come to you with diagnosed Clinical Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, or some other severe psycho-emotional condition, make sure they are under the care of an MD, request their medical records, and refer to county health officials if you hear even a hint of suicidal tendency. 10

11 However, for milder conditions Blue Poppy Originals has many formulas specifically designed to soothe psycho-emotional symptoms, whether as part of their specific indications or as a happy side effect because of the disease mechanisms they treat. Thanks for attending! me if you have any questions about these formulas. I do hope you ll give them a try with your patients. All good wishes to you! 11
