Notes From Our Clinicians For Ban Xia Bai Zhu Tian Ma Wan

Staff Clinical Notes

For damp accumulation due to spleen qi deficiency with concurrent liver qi stagnation.  Generally the spleen qi is weakened first, potentially from chronic liver qi stagnation where the liver invades the spleen but not necessarily.  The liver qi stagnation prevents the liver from promoting the smooth flow of qi from top to bottom and the liver wind results in relatively too much upward movement.  This upward excess draws damp and phlegm into the upper [jiao].
