Robbee Fian inquired as to formulas for the treatment of Blood Heat
and Blood Thick conditions. This is my response....Will
Leon occasionally uses Dang Gui and Gardenia for Blood Thick and
Heat....this formula is harsh and if the current condition is related
to Spleen Qi Xu, or any other damaged essential substances for that
matter, then it is innapropriate.
Gentle transformation of Blood Heat begins with Mu Dan Pi (Cx Mutan)
and may continue with Chi Shao (Rx Peonia rubra)........Blood thick
should contain Blood Activators, Heat Clearing agents, and possibly
Water Transforming and or Phlegm Dissolving agents. Herbs should be
included that embrace the etiology.........there is no "party line"
per se on this material, it is up to us to define that which will be
an effective treatment by a sound theoretical and experiential
It would be helpful to begin addressing issues such as this in open
forum for DRS teachers and senior students.......how do feel about
using this communication as an inauguratory posting for this? I am
interested in what others have to say on the subject and what
experience there may be in the form of successes and failures.
