    Principle of Formulation

    The formula is a typical one in the category of Qi supplementation for cold and stagnation type. Qi means the status of vital life force of the body organs, and in this case it may include the stomach, intestine, abdominal wall and related tissues, diaphragms, etc, and the liver. It is interesting to analyze the herbs used in the formula. The principal herb is lindera. It is considered a strong Qi mover, blood circulator and painkiller, dispersing cold and accumulation (such as abnormal growth and stasis), warm the kidney, strengthening the stomach and instestines. In traditional Chinese medicine, it is mainly used for hernia, apoplexy, accumulation of phlem, chest and abdominal distention and pain, regurgitation and urinary frequency, etc.

    Lindera is supported by costus(Aucklandia) root, fennel seed, blue citrus peel, evodia and citrus seed which are all characterized as pungent, warm and aromatic. Costus root promotes Qi circulation, relieves distention, controls pain, normalizes and harmonizes the stomach. Fennel works on the liver, spleen, kidney and the stomach and is used in Chinese medicine for abdominal distention and pain, and hernia. Blue citrus peel soothes the liver, and regulate the Qi, disperse accumulation, etc and is used in Chinese medicine for chest and epigastric pain, hernia, etc. Evodia is pungent and bitter in flavor and hot in nature and works on the liver, stomach, spleen and kidney and is used to dispel cold, regulate the Qi, and control pain. It is mainly applied for cold pain in the abdominal area, especially inguinal hernia dropping to the scrotum, etc. Citrus seed regulates Qi, disintegrates accumulation, soothes pain and is commonly used for testicular edema and asthenic-chilling hernia. Areca nut and chinaberry are considered auxiliary herbs. While areca nut is used for swelling and distention in the abdomen by regulating the Qi and expel accumulation, Chinaberry is used to regulate Qi and control pain including abdominal and hernia pain. Generally speaking Chinaberry is considered very cold and therefore is commonly used for hot symptoms (hernia is classified as cold symptom), its “coldness” is counter balanced by the “very hot” evodia.
