About Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang

Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang is a classic herbal formula that has been largely used in traditional Chinese Medicine for the treatment of fatigue and weakness that could result from loss of appetite and indigestion. The formula is also effective in treating a condition called visceroptosis, where the organs of the abdominal are compressed and eventually fall to a lower part of the abdomen. This can happen for various reasons, including poor posture. In Chinese Medicine this is referred to as spleen-qi descending. Finally, Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang is also used to help fight uterine and rectal prolapse, mainly due to chronic diarrhea.

Significance of a Balanced Spleen & Stomach Qi

Deficiency of the spleen and stomach Qi is believed to be the basis of all imbalances and diseases. Besides immoderate intake of excessively warm, cold or sweet foods and dietary irregularity, the stomach and the spleen can also be damaged from excessive fear, worry, and anger, and affect digestion (or the Righteous Qi of the Stomach).

When the Righteous Qi of the Stomach and Spleen are injured, the body does not receive the necessary nutrients required for a normal function of the organs and the extremities. Struggling to restore balance, the body starts to use its own resources, taking energy not from the foods but from the adrenal system. This puts enormous tension on the adrenal-controlled sympathetic nervous system, which is part of Kidney Qi. This is Yin Deficiency and results to burnout. The stress the body is put under while trying to function during burnout can indirectly affect the heart too.

Treating such deficiency requires the use of warm, tonic herbs, and Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang represents a treatment that can be modified in numerous ways to combat the imbalances of different diseases. If not treated effectively and within a short time after the manifestation of the symptoms, the Qi of the Spleen descends into the kidneys (Kidney Yin deficiency).

Symptoms of Yin Deficiency:

  • Incessant thirst
  • Surging pulse
  • Anxiousness
  • Irritability
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Facial skin conditions
  • Malar flush
  • Shortness of breath

When food energy is blocked in the Middle Warmer (abdomen), all other uprising and descending energies are blocked too, causing swelling and bloating of the abdomen, and giving rise to several external invasions of Wind, Cold, Damp, etc. The most serious part of this type of deficiency has to do with the way the body tries to relieve external diseases. The usual mechanism is sweating, which further depletes the already imbalanced spleen; a condition that can be life-threatening.

The treatment strategy in such cases is to tonify the middle with herbs that move Qi and tonics of the spleen Qi while using herbs that will help drain Deficiency Fire, which is the basis of Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang.
