QI JU DI HUANG WAN formula Dynamics

An augmented version of Rehmannia Six plus two additional herbs.  The effect of  which shift the effect of the formula from the Kidney YIN to the Liver YIN and direct the action of the formula to the eyes.  

The base formula, Rehmannia Six is considered the strongest formula for increasing the YIN, yet it contains no herbs that are classified as YIN tonics.  This an example of herbal synergy, where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. 

The Tonifying Herbs of Rehmannia 6:

SHU DI HUANG - Profoundly tonifies YIN and Blood. Shu Di is the chief herb

SHAN YAO - Bolsters organ Qi in the 3 Jiao (upper-Lung, middle-Spleen, and lower-Kidney). This tonic herb is almost unique in that it is a Spleen tonic with a cooler nature.  This is uncommon for a Spleen tonic, as most have a warm nature.  This cooling property makes iSHAN YAO especially appropriate in a formula used to treat deficient YIN, a condition that is frequently accompanied by 'Deficiency Heat'

SHAN ZHU YU is a sour and sweet.  In TCM the sour taste is often associated with astringency.  In this formula SHAN ZHU YU helps to astringe the Kidney, preventing the leakage of Essence (JING) and YIN fluids.  Sweet herbs tonify and nourish. So SHAN ZHU YU also nourishes the Kidney and Liver.

The Draining Herbs of Rehmannia 6

As tonifying YIN occurs, fluids are generated. These 3 herbs help prevent the accumulation of stagnant fluids.

FU LING Though mildly tonic in itself, it also promotes urination. In this formula it assists the action of SHAN YAO in building Spleen QI and aiding the digestion and assimilation of the entire formula.

ZE XIE  Drains and Clears Kidney Fire and leeches fluids from the tissue. this herb helps normalize the metabolism of fluids. 

MU DAN PI Clears and Drains Liver Fire.  In this formula it counter acts the warming properties of SHAN ZHU YU.

Added Herbs for the Eyes

JU HUA, chrysanthemum, Cools the Liver, benefits the eyes, and clears heat from the eyes

GOU QI ZI, goji berry, Tonifies both the YIN and YANG of the Kidneys. Nourishes and moistens the Liver and the eyes.
