Chinese name 逍遥散
English name Bupleurum & Dang Gui Formula Granules

This formula is designed to treat Liver constraint with blood deficiency. The relationship between the Liver and Spleen is very close. When the Liver qi is constrained its control over the Spleen becomes excessive, resulting in Spleen deficiency. This is known as transverse rebellion of Liver qi violating the Spleen. Deficiency of the Spleen, whose function is to transform nutrients into blood and qi, often results in blood deficiency. Conversely, blood deficiency (regardless of origin) can lead to Liver constraint. The Liver, a yin organ which stores blood, depends upon the yang to carry out its spreading function. But if the supply of Liver blood is insufficient, a surplus of qi may ensue, which is known as constrained Liver qi. - Bensky: Chinese Herbal Medicine Formulas and Strategies.
