Pinellia & Gastrodia Combination by Sun Ten also known as Ban Xia Bai Zhu Tian Ma Tang dispels dampness, dissolves phlegm, strengthens the spleen and removes liver wind.
Ban Xia Bai Zhu Tian Ma Tang translates as Pinellia, Atractylodes Macrocephala, and Gastrodia Decoction and it was originally formulated in the 13th century by Chinese physician Li Gao. He lived during the Genghis Khan invasions, a time of war where food shortages were common and people survived on rotting food. So Li Gao became founder of the school of supplementing earth, which was a unique concept that digestive imbalances were the root cause of disease. Ban Xia Bai Zhu Tian Ma Tang was one of the formulas recorded in Li Gaos book on balancing the digestion. This formula was used to treat headache and vertigo and was named after the three herbal ingredients that best resolve these conditions.
