Traditional Chinese Medicine refers to the pattern Fu Fang Dan Shen Pian deals with as ?iong Bi?or ?hest impediment.?It? frequently caused by Phlegm obstruction or Blood stasis preventing proper movement of Yang Qi (energy) in the chest. Fu Fang Dan Shen Pian optimizes Blood flow through the Heart and relieves pain by dissolving Blood stasis, opening the orifices, cooling the Blood, dispersing Phlegm, and restoring vital energy.
Fu Fang Dan Shen Pian is composed of three herbs. Dan Shen (Salvia root) is paired with San Qi (Notoginseng) to specifically address Xiong Bi or chest impediment. Both herbs invigorate the blood and dispel stasis, thus alleviating pain in the chest. San Qi in particular has powerful anticoagulant and hemostatic properties and has been studied for its application in the treatment of coronary artery disease and cardiac arrhythmia1. Modern research clearly demonstrates that these herbs have a supportive effect on the cardiovascular system.
Dan Shen is highly prized for its ability to dispel blood stasis while also nourishing the blood. Dan Shen additionally cools the blood and calms the spirit or Shen, thought to be housed in the heart. Dan Shen has been shown to potentially reduce the damage of cardiac ischemia (tissue death) in cases of heart attack.2
The final herb in this formula is Shu He Xiang (Styrax). Shu He Xiang powerfully opens the orifices, disperses phlegm turbidity and relieves pain. Shu He Xiang also has antiplatelet action and benefits the heart muscle by increasing blood flow. It is frequently used in cases of coronary artery disease.
Fu Fang Dan Shen Pian has a remarkably beneficial effect on the heart and cardiovascular system in cases of Xiong Bi or chest impediment. Modern research suggests that this Chinese herbal supplement may be beneficial for biomedically defined conditions such as hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol), myocardial ischemia (heart attack)3 and coronary artery disease4.
