 Formula Rationale

This formula was designed by Dr. Jake Fratkin and used successfully in his clinic. It is primarily for postpartum normalization of the uterus, and to replenish Qi and jing lost during labor. Its foundation is Eight Treasures Decoction (Ba Zhen Tang), the classic formula for tonification of Qi and blood. To this has been added astragalus (huang qi) to reinforce the building of Qi and blood, ho-shou-wu to nourish blood, yin, and jing, gelatinum (e jiao) and artemisia (ai ye) to arrest deficiency bleeding, and crataegus (shan zha) to treat abdominal pain. Three herbs, salvia (dan shen), leonurus (yi mu cao), and rubia (qian cao gen) are used synergistically to invigorate blood, dispel stasis and expel the placenta. They also act to contract the uterus and return it to normal size.

 

Clinical Notes

3. Postpartum fatigue is a common presentation after childbirth. For many women, it may be the underlying cause of Qi and Blood deficiency that lasts throughout the rest of their life
4. In China, postpartum formulas are routinely given for four to six weeks following childbirth. In cases of hard or prolonged labor, the formula may be necessary for eight to twelve weeks
