Formula explanation
Within this formula, Ban Xia and Gan Jiangharmonize the stomach and downbear counterflow as well as eliminate dampness. Dang Shen, Gan Jiang, Da Zao, and mix-fried Gan Cao fortify the spleen and supplement the qi. Huang Qin and Huang Lian clear heat and eliminate dampness from the stomach and intestines.

Three capsules two times per day equal not less than 30 grams of bulk medicinals. However, because our extraction process is so much more efficient than stovetop decoction, we believe this amount of extract is actually more like the equivalent of 45-60 grams of bulk-dispensed herbs.

My patient does present signs and symptoms of:
Damp heat in the stomach and intestines
Spleen qi vacuity
