How Is Chen Xiang Hua Qi Wan Used Clinically?

Chen Xiang Hua Qi Wan Usages and Indications

For spleen qi deficiency with damp heat accumulation in the lower.  The spleen system is effectively the western version of the digestive system.  The spleen is responsible for extracting the energy from the food and properly breaking the food down.  When the spleen is weak the overall energy tends to drop, the appetite may be poor, and the mood may also be on the down side.  Furthermore, the weakness of the spleen results in the accumulation of byproducts (damp) which tend to accumulate in the lower.

Symptoms may include diarrhea, constipation, excessive gas, and abdominal distension.  This formula is used to treat belching, acid reflux, poor appetite, abdominal distension, flatulence, constipation, and abdominal cramping and discomfort.

Tongue: puffy, sticky or greasy coat

Pulse: slippery, weak
