Xiang Sha Liu Jun Zi Tang is a phenomenally effective formula for regulating the digestion in Spleen Qi deficiency cases with predominate damp-cold stagnation affecting the middle jiao.
By examining the origin of Xiang Sha Lui Jun Zi Tang, we can understand its basic function of tonifying the Qi energy and its particular strength at expelling damp, transforming phlegm and alleviating abdominal pain and digestive disorders.
Xiang Sha Liu Jun Zi Pian is considered a modification of Liu Jun Zi Tang (Six Gentleman Decoction). Mu Xiang (Aucklandia) and Sha Ren (Cardamom seed) are added to the base formula. Both Chinese herbs aromatically transform dampness and promote the movement of Qi, respectively. They are warming in nature and reinforce the base formula's effect of strengthening the Qi of the middle jiao. Mu Xiang specifically resolves stagnant Qi of the Spleen, Stomach and Intestines, thereby alleviating abdominal pain and discomfort. Sha Ren is particularly effective in reducing nausea and is commonly used to treat morning sickness. Recent studies demonstrate Sha Ren's ability to relieve abdominal bloating, spasms and pain.1
Liu Jun Zi Tang itself is a modification of Si Jun Zi Tang (Four Gentleman Decoction). The "four gentlemen" of Traditional Chinese herbology are Ren Shen (Ginseng) or Dang Shen (Codonopsis root), Bai Zhu (Atractylodes rhizome), Fu Ling (Poria) and Zhi Gan Cao (Processed Licorice). These herbs are fairly mild and harmonious when combined and are frequently used in Qi tonifying formulas. Bai Zhu and Fu Ling not only tonify Qi but also dispel dampness and phlegm which often result from long-standing Spleen Qi deficiency. Si Jun Zi Tang becomes Liu Jun Zi Tang with the addition of Chen Pi (Tangerine peel) and Ban Xia (Pinellia tuber) which constitute Er Chen Tang and transform dampness and phlegm more aggressively.
Xiang Sha Lui Jun Zi Tang combines the properties of this family of formulas to effectively treat cases of chronic Spleen and Stomach Qi deficiency which has lead to cold-damp stagnation affecting the middle jiao.
