Si Shen Wan by Blue Poppy’s Great Nature Classics is a formula that comes from Xue Jis Ming dynasty Nei Ke Zhai Yao (Selected Essentials of Internal Medicine).
Within this formula: Bu Gu Zhi supplements both the spleen and kidneys and stops diarrhea. Rou Dou Kou warms the spleen and kidneys and secures the intestines.
Wu Zhu Yu dispels cold from the middle burner. It also courses the liver and rectifies the qi, thus freeing the flow of the qi mechanism.
Wu Wei Zi also secures the intestines. However, since it engenders fluids, it help prevent Wu Zhu Yu from damaging yin fluids due to its warmth and acridity.
Sheng Jiang and Da Zao fortify the spleen and harmonize the middle. Sheng Jiang also helps transform dampness.
