Damp stagnation of the spleen and stomach manifesting as acute and chronic gastritis, gastrectasis, gastric ulcer, peptic ulcer, indigestion, especially pediatric indigestion, gastric neurosis, obesity, chronic pancreatitis, and parasitic diseases
Within this formula, Cang Zhu (Rhizoma Atractylodis) is the sovereign. It is bitter, warm, and drying in nature. It is used to eliminate dampness and transport the spleen. Hou Po (Cortex Magnoliae) is the minister. It moves the qi and transforms dampness, disperses distention and eliminates fullness. Chen Pi (Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae) is the assistant. It rectifies the qi and transforms stagnation. Gan Cao (Radix Glycyrrhizae) is the messenger or guide. It is sweet and relaxing and harmonizes the stomach. It also regulates and harmonizes all the other medicinals. Sheng Jiang (uncooked Rhizoma Zingiberis) and Da Zao (Fructus Jujubae) also regulate and harmonize the spleen and stomach. Therefore, the medicinals in this formula work together to transform damp turbidity, to regulate and disinhibit the qi mechanism or dynamic, to boost and fortify the spleen and stomach, and to harmonize and downbear the stomach qi.
