What's CHAI HU SHU GAN WAN's Functions
Chai Hu Shu Gan Wan soothes the Liver to disperse stagnant Liver Qi.
CHAI HU SHU GAN WAN is the same as SHU GAN WAN (Soothe the Liver Pill) with the addition of CHAI HU (bupleurum). It is a remarkable formula that is aimed at digestive complaints caused or worsened by stress. When the symptoms are related to the upper abdomen with symptoms of gastric reflux, belching, nausea, and flank pain, this condition is called Liver Invades Stomach. When symptoms are related to the lower abdomen with diarrhea or constipation, or alternating constipation and diarrhea, the syndrome called Liver Invades Spleen.
Both of these conditions are actually caused by emotional constraint, which leads to stagnation of the QI of the chest or abdominal cavity. This is commonly referred to as Liver Qi Stagnation.
