They are a large part of the formula, thus mainly Qi- but also Blood deficiency is an important background for the use of Gui Pi Tang. The deputy and assistant herbs obviously emphasize this and also address secondary consequences of Qi and Blood deficiency; mental distress and a weakened MW. Observed Dui Yao Combinations This section is meant as an extra overview, so significant conclusions will be taken into consideration from this short section.
This emphasizes the logical and synergistic composition of the formula. Important modifications When the key indications from Table 1 are present and also one of the indications below, the addition of herbs can broaden the range of use of Gui Pi Tang: 1. As can be seen this comprises numbness and menstrual problems. The menstrual blood volume change 5 is an interesting one astringent herbs are used to normalize the flow. It is interesting because it so closely related to the indication of Gui Pi Tang to stop bleeding.
Arguably when the volume is high this is seemingly recommended. Comparisons and associated formulas6,7 Since Gui Pi Tang has multiple actions, and because it contains twelve herbs in its unmodified composition, there are multiple scenarios for its use. To understand this formula, where it stands in relations to others, should be helpful when making clinical decisions. Herbs from Gui Pi Tang are printed in bold.
To understand the difference with Gui Pi Tang a column is added with changed herbs. Bleeding from def Tongue pale, white coating.
Pulse Thready, superficial and rapid in the first position on the right side. In the second column all the herbs present in Gui Pi Tang are printed bold. All the formulas in Table 2 refer to a pale tongue, with the exception of Suan Zao Ren Tang, where no reference of color of the tongue body is made.
Also paleness of the face and lightness of the color of blood is noteworthy. When considering Gui Pi Tang, based on the patterns and indications the formulas in the above table can be considered. Based on distinguishing features a selection can be made for the most appropriate formula.
By looking at the herbs that are added or removed compared to Gui Pi Tang information is obtained about the functional blocks that would be used for certain indications specifically, thus further solidifying the choice for a formula.
Pathologies, patterns In this chapter the most relevant patterns are discussed. Relation to organs, blood and Shen In TCM the Shen is related to the Heart, which is said to govern our emotions and to blood, which is said to anchor the Shen.
It is very likely that when the Shen is disturbed and needs calming, that blood, or blood related organs, are affected. Below is depicted the relationship between Liver, Spleen and Heart and blood Maciocia, foundations of Chinese medicine, p. Additionally it also has herbs like Yuan Zhi to calm the mind specifically. The spleen is also strengthened by the herbs that together make Si Jun Zi Tang.
The addition of Huang Qi and Dang Gui is there to enhance blood production, all and all a perfect fit to this picture. Blood patterns As described in the previous paragraph 3.
For that reason it is useful knowing which blood patterns are described in the literature. These are the ones given by Maciocia Foundations of CM, p. Heart patterns Because of the mental indications in the formula, the Heart is discussed in this section as well.
All emotions eventually injure the Heart Qi, so deficient Heart Qi and Heart blood are recurrent patterns overall.
Yifan Yang Chinese herbal medicine p. Bensky p. To Phlegm veiling the Heart it is relevant but with true excess patterns modifications are to be recommended. For these reasons Gui Pi Tang is again well suited to these indications. Heart Yang deficiency seems also less relevant. Liver Patterns The Liver is important in blood patterns. For Gui Pi Tang this is mostly a deficiency pattern, and not stagnation patterns.
More to help with moving qi, prevent cloying and generate blood. Because the child is deficient, it requires extra resources from the mother. Ironically worrying and pensiveness related to Spleen , create mental more mental problems like anxiety related to the Heart. Al of them hinder the function of the Qi mechanism, which can cause emotional imbalances or vice versa. Written like this these patterns are not appropriate for Gui Pi Yang.
It cannot by itself treat these patterns, nor does it seem likely that it should be the first choice for these with modifications. The five Shen In the introduction it was established that Gui Pi Tang has indications for mental problems. Therefore the five aspects of the mind are further delved into. The description entering and exiting is abstract and large.
It requires more study to describe it more thoroughly. I summarize the Hun as the source of ideas and movement of the Shen itself.
In the same work Maciocia Foundations of CM, p. There can be either to restrict control depression or to little control mania , also called a floating of the Hun Assuming that restriction is more of an excess pattern, and the floating can be caused more of a deficiency pattern. It could be argued that the formula in this paper better suited for an excess of ideas scenario Liver blood deficiency.
This also fits the Yi thinking and overthinking patterns where the herbs are useful for. The pathology herein is overthinking. Over taxation by thinking injures the Spleen, which needs Qi and blood for its proper functioning Foundations of CM, p. The palmoplantar sweat volume and skin temperature of all patients were measured before the administration of TJ The efficacy of the treatment was evaluated at 2, 4 and 8 weeks after starting the administration of TJ by measuring the sweat volume and skin temperature.
Sweat Volumes Sweat Volume and skin temperature were measured under both pre- and post- stress conditions. The mental stress test consisted of counting backwards from by 7s. The troublesome complications were satisfactorily resolved within 2—8 weeks. The sweat volume and skin temperature changed gradually in 8 weeks and data at 8 weeks are used for the following analysis. Table 1.
Palmoplantar skin temperature rose with stress loading in healthy controls, but decreased in pretreatment patients. Shigyaku-san treatment reduced the palmoplantar perspiration in palmoplantar hidrosis patients at rest and under stress. Furthermore, it also improved other serious complications, especially coldness of the extremities. Keywords: Kampo, palmoplantar hyperhidrosis, Shigyaku-san sini san Introduction Palmoplantar hidrosis is common in patients who are susceptible to strain on the autonomic nervous system, and stress and mental strain have been proven to produce sweating in this population.
It is known that physiological sweating due to exercise is mediated by stimulation of the sudorific center in the hypothalamus, while sweating due to stress is mediated by stimulation of the sudorific center in the frontal area, which causes an increase in autonomic nerve strain that leads to palmoplantar sweating 1 , 2.
Patients with palmoplantar hidrosis often present with lower body coldness, purulent blisters, erythema, facial flushing, atopic dermatitis, constipation and menstrual disorders.
Shigyaku-san seems to be effective for relieving stagnation of liver Qi and vital energy in traditional Chinese medicine TCM theory, leading to an improvement in palmoplantar hidrosis and its accompanying symptoms.
