    What does it do?

    In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the Spleen plays a critical role in transforming the body' nutrients into Yin, Yang, and Qi which are the fundamental energies for life. A strong Spleen can supply the body with abundant Yin, Yang, and Qi energy that may be present at low levels after birth. When the Spleen function is weak, digestion is compromised.

    A common Spleen problem is insufficient Yang energy. Spleen Yang deficiency often comes with the Yang deficiency of the Stomach as well. As a result, one may experience a feeling of cold in the Stomach and the limbs, abdominal distension, and loose stool. For example, one cannot drink cold milk or ice water. The abdominal discomfort can be relieved after the abdomen is pressed with hands or covered with a warm water bag.

    Fu Zi Li Zhong Tang is a popular Chinese herbal medicine used to reinforce the Yang energy of the Spleen and Stomach. This Chinese medicine is composed of several herbs that strengthen the Yang energy and the Spleen. Among them, Fu Zi (Zhi) (Processed Aconite Root) is perhaps the best-known Chinese herb for restoring the Yang energy and dispersing Cold. Gan Jiang (Dried Ginger) is acrid and warm in nature and disperses Cold. Dang Shen (Codonopsis root) replenishes the Qi energy and harmonizes the Spleen. Bai Zhu (Atractylodes root) is a key tonic for the Spleen and Stomach and removes Dampness. Gan Cao (Licorice root) tonifies Spleen and Qi and synchronizes the action of the other herbs.

    Fu Zi Li Zhong Wan is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia for warming the middle-Jiao and strengthening the Spleen. The Chinese herb is used for the insufficiency and coldness of the Spleen and Stomach, cold hands and feet.

    Midwarmer™ (Fu Zi Li Zhong Pian) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works. My acupuncturist/herbalist recommended Fu Zi Li Zhong for problems with loose stools. In my experience, many herbs take a long time to take effect; Fu Zi seemed to work quickly. There's a reason they call it a "mid-warmer." Not only does it stop loose stools, it warms your mid-section both front and back. My acupuncturist told me that loose stools are caused my to cold of a GI system. My only caution is to not take too much or you can get constipated. After adjusting the dosage, it works great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have chronic poor circulation problem for many years. Every winter my hands and feet are icy cold. When the temperature drops below 15 degree, chilblains start to pop up all over my fingers and toes and both hands become swollen and sore. They then start to crack and bleed and look most unsightly. I bought the Midwarmer in late May and after 5 days noticed that, although winter had just set in and it was getting very cold, only a couple of chilblains appeared and the fingers did not get swollen. I also did not feel as cold as I normally would. Unfortunately, I then got the cold which turned into bronchitis and I had to stop taking the Midwarmer. But just based on the observation of those 5 days, I am very pleased with the product and can't wait to go back to it..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It worked for me. Had loose bowel movements (diarrhea) for many months. I took 5 tablets of Fu Zi Li Zhong Pian. The directions suggest taking 5 tablets 3 x/day. I took the 5 tablets just a single time. Believe it or not, problem is remedied. It’s been over 2 weeks and I’m fine.
