Within this formula, Shu Di (cooked Radix Rehmanniae), enriches and supplements kidney yin. Shan Zhu Yu (Fructus Corni), and Shan Yao (Radix Dioscoreae), enrich and supplement the liver and spleen, thus assisting the enrichment and supplementation of yin within the kidneys. Rou Gui (Cortex Cinnamomi), and Zhi Fu Zi (Radix Lateralis Praeparata Aconiti), warm and supplement yang within the kidneys. Ze Xie (Rhizoma Alismatis), and Fu Ling (Poria), disinhibit water and seep dampness. They also lead ministerial fire back down to its lower source. In addition, Fu Ling supplements the spleen, remembering that the former and latter heavens are mutually rooted. It also quiets the spirit. Dan Pi (Cortex Moutan) clears and drains ministerial fire should it flare upwards hyperactiviely. It also quickens the blood, and enduring diseases eventually reach the kidneys and typically are associated with blood stasis. Thus this combination of medicinals warms and supplements kidney yang, supplements at the same time as it drains, and supplements without being slimy and stagnating. It is also based on the notion of seeking yang within yin. This formula comes from Zhang Zhong-jings late Han dynasty Jin Gui Yao Lue (Essentials from the Golden Cabinet).
