This formula is for the treatment of chronic, enduring impediment pain due to a combination of wind, cold, damp evils and blood stasis having entered the network vessels*. This pattern corresponds to certain presentations of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and joint pain.
Arthritis typically corresponds to impediment conditions (bi zheng) in Chinese medicine. According to the Nei Jing (Inner Classic): “[When] the three qi of wind, cold, and dampness combine, they result in impediment.” However, Ye Tianshi has also said that, “Enduring diseases enter the network vessels,” meaning that enduring diseases are usually complicated by blood stasis in the network vessel. While Yan Dexin has pointed out that, if there is chronic disease, there is liver depression whether that depression was part of the original cause of that disease. This is based on the fact that unfulfilled desires is the main cause of liver depression and a sick person has to have many unfulfilled desires. Therefore, unlike many impediment pain formulas, this formula not only dispels wind, eliminates dampness, and scatters cold, but also quickens the blood and frees the flow of the network vessels as well as courses the liver and rectifies the qi. Within it, Qiang Huo (Radix Et Rhizoma Notopterygii) and Gui Zhi (Ramulus Cinnamomi) warm yang and free the flow of the vessels, scatter cold and diffuse impediment. Qin Jiao (Radix Gentianae Macrophyllae) and Fang Ji (Radix Stephaniae) dispel wind and eliminate dampness, relax the sinews and free the flow of the network vessels. Cang Zhu (Rhizoma Atractylodis) and Yi Yi Ren (Semen Coicis) eliminate dampness by a combination of seeping and drying as well as free the flow of the network vessels. Dang Gui (Radix Angelicae Sinensis), Hong Hua (Flos Carthami), and Tao Ren (Semen Persicae) quicken the blood and dispel stasis. Di Long (Pheretima), Mo Yao (Myrrha), and Ru Xiang (Olibanum) quicken the blood, free the flow of the network vessels, and powerfully stop pain. Su Gen (Caulis Perillae), Wu Yao (Radix Linderae), and Xiang Fu (Rhizoma Cyperi) course the liver and rectify the qi. In particular, when Su Gen is combined with Xiang Fu, these two medicinals harmonize the liver and spleen. Additionally, Yi Yi Ren fortifies the spleen, Dang Gui nourishes the blood, and Wu Yao warms the kidneys. Niu Xi (Radix Achyranthis Bidentatae) supplements the liver and kidneys and strengthens the sinews and bones, while Mu Gua (Fructus Chaenomelis) transforms dampness and relieves cramping. According to Bensky et al., this medicinal is especially useful for a liverspleen disharmony resulting in problems in the lower extremities. And finally, Gan Cao (Radix Glycyrrhizae) harmonizes all the other ingredients in the formula.
