What does it do?
In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the Spleen plays a critical role in transforming the body' nutrients into Yin, Yang, and Qi which are the fundamental energies for life. A strong Spleen can supply the body with abundant Yin, Yang, and Qi energy that may be present at low levels after birth. When the Spleen function is weak, digestion is compromised.
A common Spleen problem is insufficient Yang energy. Spleen Yang deficiency often comes with the Yang deficiency of the Stomach as well. As a result, one may experience coldness in the Stomach, abdominal distension or ache, watery stool, vomiting, and coldness of the limbs. For example, one cannot drink cold milk or ice water, otherwise diarrhea may occur. The abdominal pain can be alleviated after the abdomen is pressed with hands or covered with a warm water bag.
Fu Zi Li Zhong Tang is a popular Chinese herbal medicine used to reinforce the Yang energy of the Spleen and Stomach. This Chinese medicine is composed of several herbs that strengthen the Yang energy and the Spleen. Among them, Fu Zi (Zhi) (Processed Aconite Root) is perhaps the best-known Chinese herb for restoring the Yang energy and dispersing Cold. Sheng Jiang (Ginger) is acrid and warm in nature and disperses Cold. Dang Shen (Codonopsis root) replenishes the Qi energy and harmonizes the Spleen. Bai Zhu (Atractylodes root) is a key tonic for the Spleen and Stomach and removes Dampness. Gan Cao (Licorice root) tonifies Spleen and Qi and synchronizes the action of the other herbs.
Fu Zi Li Zhong Wan is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia1 for warming the middle-Jiao and strengthening the Spleen. The Chinese herb is used for the insufficiency and coldness of the Spleen and Stomach, abdominal pain and coldness, vomiting and loose stool, cold hands and feet. †
