Therapeutic Actions*

  1. Diarrhea accompanied by sinking of Source Qi, extreme deficiency of the spleen/stomach, prolapse of the anus, loss of appetite, food not being digested, fluids not being absorbed and "passing straight through," extreme thirst, insufficient fluids, weight loss and wasting of the limbs, fever and chills
  2. Source Qi, may be taken for any type of chronic deficiency-cold diarrhea for which stomach/spleen injury is present. This formula was developed based on the treatment of cryptosporidiosis, a parasitic disease affecting AIDS patients, and which typically causes watery diarrhea, fatigue, loss of weight, and poor appetite. However, the formula may be used for other deficiency-cold chronic diarrhea conditions, such as those associated with Crohn's disease, other parasite infestations, or chronic viral or bacterial infections*


Chinese Therapeutic Effects*

Strengthen the spleen/stomach*
Astringe the fluids*
Tonify the qi*
Increase digestive functions*

Formula Rationale*
Source Qi was formulated based on the clinical observations of Misha Cohen, OMD, L.Ac. and Andrew Gaeddert in treating cryptosporidiosis in AIDS and other chronic diarrhea patients. The formula was tested in an earlier form at the Quan Yin Healing Arts Center and in various private practices, and adjusted by the formulators according to the accumulated experience.*

The chief herb is Ailanthes (chun bai pi) which clears heat, eliminates dampness, and binds the intestines, it is used primarily for chronic diarrhea, and also has a an antiparasitic action. *

The remainder of the formula is warming. Astragalus (hjuang qi), which tonifies the spleen and augments the qi, and along with Ginseng (ren shen), helps resolve lack of appetite, fatigue, and diarrhea. White Atractylodes (bai zhu) addresses weakness, lassitude, and loose stools associated with spleen deficiency, and Red Atractylodes (cang zhu) tonifies the spleen and dispels dampness. Poria (fu ling) regulates water metabolism and also resolves dampness. Dioscorea (shan yao), Lotus seed (lian rou), and Euryale (qian shi), all tonify the spleen and relieve chronic diarrhea. Cimicifuga (sheng ma) raises the yang and lifts sunken qi, and also guides the effects of the other herbs upward. Charcoaled Ginger (gan jiang) warms the middle and expels cold, and restores the yang from collapse; charcoaling directs the effectiveness of the herbs toward the lower abdomen. Fried Bupleurum (chai hu) raises the yang qi in spleen/stomach deficiency patterns and treats diarrhea due to collapse of spleen qi. Cardamon(rou dou kou) warms the spleen and stomach and is used primarily for cold type diarrhea. Baked Licorice (zhi gan cao) resolves spleen/stomach deficiency type diarrhea accompanied by thirst, and also harmonizes the formula. Shen-chu (shen qu) promotes the digestion by increasing the appetite and eliminating the sensation of fullness, while harmonizing the stomach.*


Clinical Notes*

1. In addition to its other actions, Ailanthes has been found in clinical studies to have an antiparasitic effect, which appear to be useful in this formula since some types of chronic diarrhea are caused by parasite infestation*
2. Results with this herbal formula should be seen within the first two weeks. However, to consolidate the effects, the formula should be continued for another two weeks after the diarrhea stops*
3. This formula has been used successfully to treat diarrhea associated with chronic shigellosis*


Additional Formulas*

• Consider Six Gentlemen when less warming is desired or with loose stools*
• Consider Colostroplex for diarrhea with heat signs or as an adjunct to Source Qi for diarrhea with cold signs*
• For acute diarrhea, with hot signs consider ColostroplexIsatis Cooling and Formula H*
• Quiet Digestion and Chzyme will improve the assimilation of Source Qi*
