    What does it do?

    The Chinese name Shi Quan Da Bu Tang literally means "all-inclusive great tonifying decoction" or "ten complete tonic decoction." This classical formula powerfully tonifies Qi and blood and also warms the Yang. It is traditionally used for lack of energy, lack of physical strength, pale face, low appetite, aversion to cold, spontaneous perspiration, or weakness of the lower extremities.

    The original source of the formula Shi Quan Da Bu Pian can be traced back to the Imperial Grace Formulary of the Tai Ping Era. Today it remains an important tool used for the treatment of patterns of predominant Qi and blood deficiency with moderate Yang deficiency or cold.

    Subjects may present with a pale tongue with a white coating. The pulse may be thin, weak and slow.

    Shi Quan Da Bu Pian is based on the classical formula Ba Zhen Tang (Eight Treasure Decoction) with the addition of Huang Qi (Astragalus) and Rou Gui (Cinnamon bark). Ba Zhen Tang itself is a combination of the classical formulas Si Jun Zi Tang (Four Gentleman Decoction) and Si Wu Tang (Four Substance Decoction) which are the flagship Traditional Chinese Medicine formulas used to tonify Qi and blood, respectively.

    Ren Shen (Ginseng) is traditionally the chief herb of both Ba Zhen Tang and Shi Quan Da Bu Tang, however today Dang Shen (Codonopsis root) is usually substituted at around 2-3 times the dose. While Dang Shen, Bai Zhu (Atractylodes rhizome), Fu Ling (Poria) and Gan Cao (Licorice) tonify the Qi, Shu Di Huang (processed Rehmannia root), Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica root), Bai Shao (white Peony root) and Chuan Xiong (Szechuan Lovage rhizome) nourish and gently move the blood.

    Because chronic or profound Qi deficiency often presents with concurrent Yang deficiency cold, Shi Quan Da Bu Pian is modified with the addition of Huang Qi and Rou Gui. Huang Qi is a prized Chinese herb for its ability to support immune function by tonifying Lung and Spleen Qi, consolidating the exterior and raising Yang.

    Rou Gui is effective at warming Yang and dispelling cold. These modifications make Shi Quan Da Bu Pian an indispensable supplement in the TCM treatment of patients with cold deficiency patterns to restore vitality and optimum health.

I ordered 6 bottles of Shi Quan Da Bu Pian for an aunt who is currently undergoing Chemotherapy. I am most happy to report that her doctor decided to decrease the number of chemotherapy sessions remaining due to the fact that in her last evaluative exams her "tumor" values were lower than expected (She's already on her fifth bottle). ... THANK YOU VERY MUCH. A MOST HAPPY CUSTOMER

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase I purchased 5 bottles in hopes that I would have improved health in about three months. I had poor circulation in my hands and especially my feet (it took about an hour to fall asleep because my feet were very cold). Within the first week of dosage, the problem has been corrected. I am unaware of all the benefits of this product, but it has provided a quick remedy for me. Many thanks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from When Gui Pi Tang was not strong enough... I had been taking Gui Pi Tang religiously for two years but I started feeling not as strong as my rigorous school program progressed. I also felt cold from the strong A/C in classroom. I was recommended to step up to Shi Quan Da Bu Pian and felt better in stamina; for the cold problem, I have had to use other herb formula in my case later but I think this is a great classic way to start on a total care on fatigue.
