Within this formula, Zhu Ru (Caulis Bambusae In Taeniam) harmonizes the liver and stomach and clears depressive heat. Zhi Shi courses the liver and rectifies the qi. It also helps transform phlegm and strongly descends the qi. Ban Xia (Rhizoma Pinelliae), Fu Ling (Poria), and Chen Pi (Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae) eliminate dampness and transform phlegm while also descending the qi and downbearing counterflow. Fu Ling along with Da Zao (Fructus Jujubae) and Gan Cao (Radix Glycyrrhizae) nourish and construct the heart spirit and thus quiet the spirit. Da Zao and Gan Cao can also be said to harmonize all the other ingredients in the formula as well as harmonize the middle. This formula comes from Wu Qian et al.=s Qing dynasty Yi Zong Jian Jian (The Golden Mirror of Ancestral Medicine) published in 1742. This was a compendium of all clinically dependable medical knowledge up to that time authorized by the emperor.
