Clear & calm

This formula treats irritability, vexation and agitation, insomnia, sores on the tip of the tongue, and urinary urgency, frequency, and burning hot pain due to heart fire effulgence in turn due to a liverspleenstomach disharmony.*

Most Western patients with heart fire effulgence manifest this pattern episodically as an aggravation of liverstomach depressive heat with concomitant spleen vacuity. Dao Chi San does not address this underlying liverspleen disharmony. Sheng Yang San Huo Tang treats a yin fire scenario resulting in evil heat at the same time as fatigue. However, it treats depressive heat solely by acridly outthrusting, does not specifically clear or drain the heart, and also does not address any urinary symptoms. When these two formulas are combined with suitable additions and subtractions, it is Bob Flaws’s experience that they fit a larger percentage of Western patients with fewer side effects and quicker, more complete therapeutic effects.*

Within this formula, Dang Shen (Radix Codonopsis), Bai Zhu (Rhizoma Atractylodis Macrocephalae), and Fu Ling (Poria) fortify the spleen and supplement the qi, while Sheng Di (uncooked Radix Rehmanniae) and Mai Men Dong (Tuber Ophiopogonis) enrich yin and engender fluids, thus protecting yin from damage caused by flaming fire. When the spleen qi is exuberant, ministerial fire is automatically downborne. Similarly, when kidney water is exuberant, heart fire is automatically downborne. Fu Ling, Che Qian Zi (Semen Plantaginis), Hu Po (Succinum), Deng Xin Cao (Medulla Junci), and Dan Zhu Ye (Herba Lophateri) all clear heat from the heart by seeping water and disinhibiting urination. In particular, Fu Ling and Che Qian Zi are used to take over the roles of Mu Tong, which is avoided in Blue Poppy Herbs’ formulas due to issues about contamination with aristoclochic acid. Huang Lian (Rhizoma Coptidis) and Mai Men Dong (Tuber Ophiopogonis) bitterly and coldy clear heat from the heart. Uncooked Sheng Di and Chi Shao (Radix Rubra Paeoniae) clear heat and cool the blood, thus helping to clear heat from both the liver and heart. According to Bensky and Gamble, the combination of Chi Shao and Bai Shao (Radix Alba Paeoniae) is especially good for relieving irritability due to liver depression.1 Bai Shao and Sheng Di also nourish the blood and moisten the liver, therefore helping it to soften and relax. Further, Bai Shao’s sour astringence protects yin fluids from damage by the windy natured yangupbearing, exteriorresolving medicinals in this formula. Fang Feng (Radix Saposhnikoviae), Qiang Huo (Radix Et Rhizoma Notopterygii), and Sheng Ma (Rhizoma Cimicifugae) are those yangupbearing, windy natured medicinals. They outthrust depressive heat. In addition, Fang Feng (Radix Saposhnikoviae) harmonizes the liver and spleen, while Sheng Ma clears heat from the stomach and hence is empirically specific for treating sores in the mouth and on the tongue. Fang Feng & Qiang Huo both enter the bladder channel. Hu Po also enters the bladder channel as well as the heart and liver. It quiets the spirit at the same time as it frees the flow of urination. Gan Cao Shao (Extremitas Radicis Glycyrrhizae) rootlets harmonize all the other medicinals in this formula in addition to “relaxing the tension of wood,”2 which is one of the main mechanisms of heart fire effulgence.*

Three capsules two times per day equal not less than 36g of raw medicinals. However, because our extraction process is so much more efficient than stovetop decoction, we believe that this amount of our extract is actually more like the equivalent of 48-72g of bulk-dispensed herbs.
