Harmonizes the liver and stomach, clears heat and eliminates dampness
Pediatric indigestion with epigastric distention and pain, poor appetite, burping-belching, acid eructation, and nausea
Due to the facts that children’s livers typically “have a surplus” and a replete liver easily assails the stomach, children often suffer from indigestion, stomachache, and nausea. Therefore, within this formula, Chai Hu, Zhu Ru, and Zhi Qiao course the liver and rectify the qi. Zhu Ru, Ban Xia, Chen Pi, Sheng Jiang, Gan Cao, and Da Zao harmonize the stomach and downbear counterflow. Tai Zi Shen supplements the qi without damaging yin, while Zhu Ru and Huang Qin clear heat. Over the past dozen or so years in China, Tai Zi Shen has become an increasingly popular substitution for Dang Shen (Radix Codonopsis). Tai Zi Shen boosts the qi but also engenders fluids. Because children have a “pure yang” constitution and yin does not become fully mature until the late teens-early 20s, this ingredient helps protect the yin of the body from either the ill effects of depressive or damp heat and acrid, windy-natured qi-rectifying ingredients.
