Arisaema 10 is based on three formulas for phlegm-damp syndrome: Erzhu Tang, formula for phlegm-damp accumulation with swelling in the arms, as occurs with lymphedema, shoulder bursitis, and forearm neuralgia: Cangzhu Daotan Wan, a formula for phlegm-damp accumulation that leads to, among other things, infertility in women: and Banxia Baizhu Tianma Tang for phlegm-damp that causes headaches, tiredness after eating, and dizziness. The syndrome of phlegm-damp is most often seen in persons of obese constitution who have weak function of the stomach/spleen system, leading to accumulation of fluid and sensations of numbness, dizziness, or tiredness. Others can suffer the syndrome as a result of dietary imbalances regardless of weight or digestive abilities. Contributors to the phlegm-damp accumulation include excess dietary fat, too much consumption of grains, too much intake of milk, and over consumption of alcohol. In cases where a part of the body has been stressed, such as with damage to or repeated use of the arms, the phlegm damp accumulation can lead to persistent numbness, stiffness, and/or pain, as occurs with carpal tunnel syndrome, finger arthritis, shoulder bursitis, or tennis elbow. This formula is quite drying in nature; therefore, if there is any finding of yin deficiency or dryness, it should be supplemented by a tonic such as Pseudostellaria 9. Other formulas for phlegm-damp include Bamboo 11, Er Chen Wan, and Zhu Dan Tablets.
