|Description||This formula comes from Wang An's early Qing dynasty Yi Fang Ji Jie (Analytic Collection of Medical Formulas) published in 1682 CE.
Within this formula, Long Dan Cao is greatly bitter and greatly cold. It is the sovereign medicinal in this formula for both draining fire and eliminating dampness. It drains replete liver-gallbladder fire from the upper body, while it also precipitates and clears damp heat from the lower body. Huang Qin and Zhi Zi are the ministers within this formula. They also have the functions of draining fire with bitterness and cold and are combined with Long Dan Cao for that purpose. Ze Xie, Mu Tong, and Che Qian Zi clear heat and disinhibit dampness. Therefore, they assist in eliminating damp heat via the urinary tract. Because the liver stores the blood and heat within the liver channel can easily damage yin and blood, at the same time as using bitter cold ingredients to dry dampness, Sheng Di and Dang Gui are used as assistants to enrich yin and nourish the blood. Gan Cao regulates and harmonizes all the other medicinals. Therefore, within this formula there is supplementation within drainage and enrichment within disinhibition. This assists the downbearing of fire and the clearing of heat and the separation of clear from damp turbidity.
