20 Huo Xiang Zheng Qi San HXZQS is one of the 50 most important formulas DX: External wind-cold & internal stagnation of damp (upper & middle jiaos) This formula is more for internal accumulation, with only mild exterior symptoms and the herbs are stronger to transform damp, than to release exterior This formula could be for a patient who had a Ping Wei San or Er Chen Tang original condition, who then caught a mild exterior w-cold HXZQS contains two formulas inside: Er Chen Tang and almost Ping Wei San (use Bai Zhu (Rhizoma Atractylodis Macrocephalae) instead of Cang Zhu (Rhizoma Atractylodis) see above for herbs in Ping Wei San HXZQS contains the 3 Amigos SJ, DZ, GC Silly story to remember herbs in the formula: The HXZQS Circus MOD #1: for severe wind-cold, increase dose of Zi Su Ye from 6g up to (not stated) MOD #2: for food stagnation Da Zao, +Shen Qu +Ji Nei Jin MOD #3: for severe dampness with a very thick, greasy coat: substitute Cang Zhu instead of Bai Zhu MOD #4: for brief, scanty urination +Mu Tong +Ze Xie Spicy warm Release exterior Er Chen Tang Treat root along with FL, GC, DZ Move down.

21 2.) Eliminate Heat & Dampness Ba Zheng San Eight Herb Powder for Rectification DX: damp-heat in lower jiao (UB) causing heat, qi or xue lin There is possibly heart or small intestine heat Caution: modify for pregnancy, or cold from deficiency Long term use can cause injury MOD #1: if more blood: +Bian Xu +Bai Mao Gen MOD #2: if shi lin (stones): +Shi Wei +Niu Xi Stronger for UTI than Dao Chi San Guide the Red Out (non-state board formula) Ba Zheng San is called the Eight Herb Powder for Rectification when in fact it contains 9 herbs Clears heat & dries damp Drains heat & fire Release abd. pain, harmonize Ba Zheng San 9 herbs Mu Tong Hua Shi Che Qian Zi Bian Xu Qu Mai Zhi Zi drains from the San Jiao Da Huang Deng Xin Cao Zhi 3.) The Diuretic Formulas Wu Ling San DX #1: External & Internal Damp DX #2: Damp in UB and TaiYang DX #3: Spleen Qi Def. & Damp-phlegm S/S: 1. Exterior Tai Yang (UB/SI) attack (headache, fever, P: floating) 2. Congested fluids in lower jiao (edema, throbbing pulsation below umbilicus, vomiting) 3. Clear Yang can t rise (headache, vertigo, SOB, coughing This formula is slightly sedating (Ze Xie & Fu Ling), slightly tonifying (Bai Zhu & Fu Ling) and slightly warming (Gui Zhi) This formula very peacefully treats the evil that goes from the Tai Yang channel to the UB organ This formula is for water retention due to excess and deficiency Promote urination & transform damp Tonify & transform damp Relieves surface & damp from UB Wu Ling San Ze Xie Zhu Ling Fu Ling Bai Zhu Gui Zhi warms yang & qi hua function Lana Farson, M.S., L.Ac. 21

22 Wu Ling San, continued MOD #1: for severe edema +Sang Bai Pi +Chen Pi +Da Fu Pi (like Wu Pi San)* MOD #2: for concurrent edema and qi obstruction +Wu Pi Yin (WJP, DGP, SBP)* MOD #3: for cold-damp Bi Zheng with thirst & urinary difficulty +Qiang Huo MOD #4: for damp-heat diarrhea Bai Zhu Gui Zhi, +Yin Chen Hao +Jin Yin Hua *Note: Wu Pi Yin = Wu Jia Pi, Di Gu Pi, Sang Bai Pi Wu Pi San = Sang Bai Pi, Da Fu Pi, Sheng Jiang Pi, Fu Ling Pi, Chen Pi Lana Farson, M.S., L.Ac. 22

23 Zhu Ling Tang DX #1: Internal heat (in upper & lower jiaos) with dampness DX #2: UB damp-heat with yin. Def. DX #3: Heart & kidney fire (+/- damages yin) with damp This formula can also be described as being for upper jiao heat and lower jiao dampness Compare to Wu Ling San: instead of Gui Zhi (warming), use Hua Shi to clear heat; instead of Bai Zhu (ton. Qi), use E Jiao to nourish yin & blood Compare to Ba Zheng San, which is much much cooler and not tonifying Zhu Ling Tang is cooling & tonifying. The heat is both in lower jiao (diff. urination, diarrhea) and upper jiao (insomnia, irritability, thirsty) Wu Ling Tang is warmer because it is tonifying the Qi, not the Blood or Yin (which would need more cooling in the case of Zhu Ling Tang) Promote urination & transform damp Wu Ling San Ze Xie Zhu Ling Fu Ling Bai Zhu ton qi Gui Zhi warming Zhu Ling Tang Ze Xie Zhu Ling Fu Ling E Jiao ton yin, blood Hua Shi - cooling Wu Pi San DX: Spleen qi deficiency with water/damp and qi stagnation Symptoms: pitting edema, swollen fingers, dyspnea, urinary retention, abdominal and epigastric distention and fullness, labored & heavy breathing, low energy T: pale, swollen, teethmarks, sticky or greasy white coat P: slippery, possibly deep or weak Translated name is 5 peel powder, and it contains 5 peels Descend LU qi, open sanjiao Reduce damp, create slight sweats Tonify qi, promote urine Move qi, transform damp Wu Pi San 5 herbs Sang Bai Pi Sheng Jiang Pi Fu Ling Pi Chen Pi Da Fu Pi MOD #1: for marked SP def.: +Dang Shen, +Bai Zhu MOD #2: for constipation due to accumulation in intestines: +Da Huang, +Zhi Shi MOD #3: for severe abdominal distention: +Lai Fu Zi, +Hou Po MOD #4: for internal damp-cold: +Gan Jiang, +Fu Zi MOD #5: for damp-heat in low jiao & edema below waist: +Che Qian Zi, +Yi Yi Ren MOD #6: for damp in low jiao & edema below waist: +Che Qian Zi, +Han Fang Ji Lana Farson, M.S., L.Ac. 23

24 4.) Eliminate Dampness by Warming Zhen Wu Tang The True Warrior Decoction DX: Kidney & Spleen Yang Def. leading to damp retention Silly pneumonic to remember herbs: Ginger said Bai Bai to the Fu Fu = Sheng Jiang, Bai Zhu, Bai Shao, Fu Zi, Fu Ling There are palpitations & dizziness because the cold water retention is going to the upper jiao, and kidney yang relates to heart yang (leads to palps) dampness turbid yin rising clear yang cannot ascend Pathogenic water ascends & affects heart & lungs Symptoms of Presentation #1 difficult urination generalized edema abd. pain worse with cold heavy,aching extremities loose stools Dizziness heavy sensation in head vomiting pathogenic water affects sp/st Palpitations coughing Symptoms of Presentation #2 (from Bensky p ) sweating that does not reduce the fever, palpitations in the epigastrium, dizziness, shivering & trembling with an unsteady appearance, T: white, slippery fur P: submerged, thin & forceless for externally contracted wind-cold at the Tai Yang stage When sweating doesn t alleviate fever, the continuous loss of fluids causes the body to wither and severely depletes the yang qi. This deprives the sinews and flesh of nourishment, and the channels and extremities of warmth, which is manifested as shivering and trembling and an unsteady appearance.
