One of my patients suffers from constipation with epigastric pain and
my diagnosis was
- Liver-Qi invading sp\st\intstines-> Retention of food-> St-heat
- Blood deficiency.
I have been suggest by my teacher to give here a variation of Si Mo
Wu Yao 12g
Chen Xiang 10g
Bing Lang 10g
Zhi Shi 10g
Da Huang 8g
Dang Gui 10g
Yu Li Ren 15g
Hei Zhi Ma 10g
* we don't have Hou Ma Ren..
1.5g x 3, in pills
after taking it she suffers from sour regurgitations with the powders
I think its too hot for here, can Da huang and Zhi Shi make the formula
because they are the only cold herb in this formula (zhi shi-slightly
or can the regurgitations be from a different cause.
This brings me to the question, Can a formulas overall temperature can
always be measured by the sum of its
cold\coold & hot\warm herbs, or are there herbs which can dramatically
change a formulas temperature regardless of its ingredients?
