Si Ni Tang Wan (Pian)
An All Natural Chinese Herbal Supplement
Si Ni Tang Wan (Si Ni Tang Pian, 四逆汤丸), literally "Frigid Extremities Decoction Pills", is an ancient Chinese medicine used to rescue the Yang energy from collapse. Today, the Chinese medicine is often used to warm up the body if one feels cold limbs and cold abdomen frequently, especially in the winter season.


Si Ni Tang Wan (Pian) Product Details
What does it do?
Si Ni Tang was created by the Great ancient Chinese doctor Zhang Zhongjing 1800 years ago to revive Yang when one has a devastated kidney Yang energy. As kidney Yang forms the basis of the whole body Yang energy and Yang is the warming property of the Yin-Yang principle, in such a situation, the extremities become very cold. Meanwhile, digestion does not function properly, leading to vomiting and diarrhea, and the Spirit is not supported, leading to tiredness, dullness, falling into sleep etc.

As one may see, the condition described in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is urgent, similar to what we know as shock, and Si Ni Tang was a critical Chinese medicine in ancient China to save lives. Of course, today even in China, hardly anyone will rely on it for the same purpose. However, the action of Si Ni Tang in reviving the kidney Yang remains useful for those who shows signs of Yang deficiency such as the cold body from the inside and cold limbs. For example, no matter how thick clothes or coverings one wears, or how hot the summer is, one still feels cold. Some people may have complained the coldness all the time and may have Yang deficiency at birth. Yang energy decreases as we age.

The function of Si Ni Tang is achieved by a unique combination of Chinese herbs. Among them, Processed Aconite root is perhaps the best known Chinese herb for restoring the Yang energy and dispersing cold; Ginger is acrid and warm in nature and disperses cold; Ginseng replenishes the Qi energy; Licorice tonifies Spleen and Qi and synchronizes the action of the other herbs.

In the TCM term, Si Ni Tang revives Yang to promote resuscitation. The Chinese medicine may be used for coldness of limbs, aversion to cold, curling-up, lientery, no thirst, and deep pulse. It is also for vomiting, abdominal pain, and coldness of limbs due to Yang impairment from misusing of diaphoresis during Taiyang disease.

Please notice that Si Ni Tang is different from Si Ni San, a formula for Liver Qi Stagnation, despite of their similar names.
