    What does it do?

    Chai Hu Long Gu Lu Mu Li literally means "Bupleurum plus Dragon Bone & Oyster Shell" in Chinese. It falls under the category of formulas that calm the spirit. Chai Hu Jia Long Gu Lu Li Tang originally appeared in the great classic of Chinese Medicine, the Shang Han Lun, over 1800 years ago. It was formulated for the treatment of the "three Yang stages" condition in the TCM term.

    Today, the applications of this formula have expanded to include many situations due to fear or phlegm disturbing the Liver/Gallbladder system. The hallmark signs of this pattern are sensation of fullness in the chest, loss of temper, occasional heart pounding and signs of spirit disturbance. According to Chinese Medicine, the spirit (Shen) resides in the Heart. When the Heart is disturbed (as by fear or heat) it cannot reside peacefully and may 'float upwards' leading to the above signs. Typically, this pattern presents with a rapid, wiry pulse and the tongue is red with a greasy coat.

    Chai Hu Long Gu Mu Li Pian is a variation of Xiao Chai Hu Tang which deals with the lesser-Yang stage (Shao Yang) of disease. Chai Hu Long Gu Mu Li Pian goes further to address all three Yang stages, including the greater-Yang (Tai Yang) and Yang-brightness (Yang Ming). The formula is composed of eleven Chinese herbs which address each of the three Yang stages and their respective meridians.

    Gui Zhi (Cinnamon) is a chief herb in the formula used to resolve the Tai Yang, which is the most exterior of the three stages. Gui Zhi promotes the flow of Yang Qi (energy) which helps relieve the feeling of fullness in the chest and body. The chief herbs Chai Hu (Bupleurum) and Huang Qin (Scutellaria) work on the Shao Yang stage to cool and support the Gallbladder and Liver, promote the proper movement of Qi, release the exterior and resolve phlegm. The final chief herb in the formula, Da Huang (Rhubarb root) addresses signs of Yang Ming stage disorder by purging heat, clearing dampness, and supporting the bowel movement.

    The assistant group of herbs includes Long Gu (Dragon bone) and Mu Li (Oyster shell) which are heavy mineral substances which anchor and subdue Liver Yang and the floating spirit. Combined with Ren Shen (Ginseng) and Fu Ling (Poria), the assistant group strengthens the Spleen Qi, supports urine flow and calms the spirit. Zhi Ban Xia (Prepared Pinellia) also has a descending action and works with Fu Ling, Chai Hu and Huang Qin to resolve phlegm in the Shao Yang stage.

    Finally, Sheng Jiang (Ginger) and Da Zao (Jujube) harmonize the formula and help to further direct the actions towards balancing the interior and exterior aspects of the body.

    Chai Hu Long Gu Mu Li Pian is a complex formula containing an elegant combination of herbs that are both warm and cold, ascending and descending. Great care should be exercised in TCM pattern differentiation before application of this formula.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from U.S Marine Veteran with PTSD I started using this once I dedicated myself to sobriety from drugs and alcohol. Being a U.S Marine Combat veteran with P.T.S.D, I used to use alcohol mainly to overcome stress from war.. However, since I have began taking this product I have noticed a significant drop in the levels of anxiousness and also sleep much more peacefully throughout the night. Nothing in my life has helped me quite like this herb (coupled with the "Spirit Calm") and I couldn't be more happy. Thank you!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Live life with flow and ease When I take this, I feel as if energy circulates within my body freely. It reminds me of how I felt when I was a kid - that effortless flow of energy throughout the body - feeling. This reduces a sense of tension - that I sometimes get, for example, jaw muscle tension and muscle twitching. When I am at work, I feel a sense of focus and engagement with my work - it replaces a certain sense of apathy that I sometimes feel towards my work with passion and excitement. Highly recommended for anyone who lives a busy life.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go Natural or Go Man Made I was suffering with bouts of depression. Just quite not centered if you may. I went to my PCP for help. That was the beginning of a very bad month long decision I had made and with the rising cost of health insurance, a nightmare. I was put on Paxil. Dangerous, very dangerous and armed with very little education on this drug I started to take it. The nightmares, the restlessnes, no sleep spells started. So did the follow ups with the Doctor. $500 later I had enough and was no better than when I went in. I got educated with Eastern Medicine and was leary but ready to try something . I found these herbs and had education handed to me by an herbologist in my area. One month later, I am off Western Drugs and am on these Herbs. Difference of night and day. And, all without side effects. I can't recommend this enough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excitingly Excellent After using NeuroSoothe for several months now, I am certainly satisfied with the results. The two main issues that I was experiencing have been fixed, and I couldn't be happier. Literally, I find myself to be extremely positive now, and my friends and family can definitely tell the difference. Also, I am no longer bothered by Interstitial Cystitis and I actually experience relief when I urinate. I can now handle the rest from here, so thank you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very important to my health Have been taking this product twice a day for four years, since I had two heart attacks caused by excess adrenaline in my system, being stuck in Fight or Flight Syndrome, and PTSD. This keeps the angina under control, along with CardioVigor. Maybe partly because it also keeps me calmer. The products always arrive within a day or two of ordering. Excellent product and excellent company.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Formula I've been using this remedy for years (started while in peri-menopause) and, more recently, this particular formula from Active Herb. I like this one partly because it actually has Ginseng in it; most other formulations use Codonopsis instead. In any case its calming & balancing effects are invaluable.
