In TCM, Qi is the vital energy whose smooth circulation throughout the body keeps its organs working in harmony. Anger hurts the Liver and blocks the flow of Qi in the Liver meridians. Liver Qi stagnation includes the following symptoms: distending pain along the sides of the body, deep breathing, easily irritated or depressed, chest distention, and frequent belching.
Liver Qi stagnation is often the cause of disorders like premenstrual syndrome (PMS), gastrointestinal disorders, menstrual pain and irregularity, and migraine headaches.
Chai Hu Shu Gan Pian (Wan) acts to soothe the liver and disperse the stagnated liver Qi. The Chinese medicine consists of a delicate combination of seven Chinese herbs as outlined below. Chai Hu (Bupleurum root) is the chief Chinese herb in the formula. It relieves the stagnated Liver Qi and soothes the Liver.
Xiang Fu (Cyperi rhizome) soothes the Liver and removes Qi obstruction to disperse depression, regulates menstruation and relieves pain.
Zhi Ke (Bitter orange) regulates Qi and disperses fullness in the chest and abdominal distension.
Chen Pi (Tangerine peel) moves Qi and strengthen digestion, expels dampness and transforms phlegm. Chen Pi, together with Xiang Fu and Zhi Ke act in the formula to enhance the function of Chai Hu.
Chuan Xiong is a unique Chinese herb that both invigorates Blood and moves Qi. It expels Wind and relieves Pain.
Bai Shao (Poeny root) nourishes the blood, harmonizes the liver and relieves pain.
Gan Cao (Licorice root) tonifies Spleen and Qi and moderates the action of the other herbs.
