Possible indications: Pediatric indigestion with epigastric distention and pain, poor appetite, burping-belching, acid eructation, and nausea
Harmonizes the liver and stomach, clears heat and eliminates dampness
Due to the facts that children’s livers typically “have a surplus” and a replete liver easily assails the stomach, children often suffer from indigestion, stomachache, and nausea. Therefore, within this formula, Chai Hu, Zhu Ru, and Zhi Qiao course the liver and rectify the qi. Zhu Ru, Ban Xia, Chen Pi, Sheng Jiang, Gan Cao, and Da Zao harmonize the stomach and downbear counterflow. Tai Zi Shen supplements the qi without damaging yin, while Zhu Ru and Huang Qin clear heat. Over the past dozen or so years in China, Tai Zi Shen has become an increasingly popular substitution for Dang Shen (Radix Codonopsis). Tai Zi Shen boosts the qi but also engenders fluids. Because children have a “pure yang” constitution and yin does not become fully mature until the late teens-early 20s, this ingredient helps protect the yin of the body from either the ill effects of depressive or damp heat and acrid, windy-natured qi-rectifying ingredients.
Out of 32 children with chronic indigestion treated with this basic formula, 28 were cured within 30 days, four others saw a marked decrease in their symptoms, and two got no effect, for a total effectiveness rate of 93.75%.

10:1 extract in a glycerin base in a 2 oz. bottle with a dropper.
This formula is for use with children who are suffering with indigestion and exhibit the following symptoms: abdominal pain, a feeling of undue fullness after eating, heartburn, loss of appetite, nausea or vomiting, and excessive wind or gas. Indigestion in children may be either acute or chronic. Discomfort and distress are often caused by overeating, eating too rapidly, or not chewing properly. Overeating or eating frequently produces a feverish state in the system and overtaxes the digestive organs. It produces excessive acid and causes the gastric mucous membranes to become congested. Hyperacidity is usually the result. A dose of 2-3 droppers, 3-4 times per day should be adequate for children 3-4 years old. This dose may be increased to 3-4 droppers, 3-4 times per day for children 5-6 and so on up from there. This formula should show results within hours for acute indigestion and within days for chronic indigestion if correctly prescribed and administered. 2 droppers full = 2 grams of Chinese herbs in decoction.
