Dispel Stasis in the Lower Burner addresses Blood stagnation in the Lower Burner with a presentation of Cold accumulation from either excess or deficiency. Cold has a Yin nature and it easily constricts, sinks and congeals downward. This formula, with its warming nature, is helpful in regulating women’s menstrual cycles, since they are easily affected by Cold, and is also indicated for occasional abdominal stagnation, and occasional lower back discomfort.


In this pattern, Liver Qi stagnation combines with interior Cold, leading to Blood accumulation and Blood stasis. The primary indication of Blood stagnation or stasis is discomfort. Liver Qi is closely related with the Uterus and the regulation of the menstrual cycle, and Liver Qi stagnation is often seen as a contributor to many disharmonies affecting women.


Dispel Stasis in the Lower Burner warms and strengthens Kidney Yang and moves Liver Qi. This formula is well balanced by addressing the branch, which is Blood stasis, and by warming and strengthening the Kidney Yang. It contains within it two classical formulas: Four Substances (Si Wu Tang), which tonifies and invigorates Blood, and Sudden Smile Powder (Shi Xiao San), which invigorates Blood. Together these two formulas invigorate Blood and warm the Lower Burner.


Dong quai root, the chief herb, warms, invigorates and tonifies Blood. Bulrush pollen, Carthamus flower, Sichuan lovage rhizome, Chinese red peony root, prepared Corydalis yanhusuo tuber and Myrrh resin assist Dong quai root in invigorating the Blood. Chinese cinnamon bark, Fennel fruit and Ginger rhizome dispel Cold, and warm the abdomen and the Lower Burner. Chinese cinnamon bark tonifies Yang, supplements Kidney Yang, and warms and opens the collaterals. Fennel fruit dispels Cold from the Lower Burner, warms the Liver and Kidney and regulates the Qi.


As this formula strongly focuses on moving Blood, it is also important to support the smooth flow of Qi, as the Qi guides the smooth flow of Blood. Dry fried flying squirrel feces, found in the classical formula, originally fulfilled that purpose. It has been replaced by prepared Cyperus rhizome and dry fried Bitter orange mature fruit. They support and regulate the smooth flow of Qi through the Lower Burner, address occasional distention or discomfort, and support a healthy menstrual cycle.


This formula strongly invigorates the Blood, and consideration should be given if used longterm as to whether additional Blood or Qi tonics are needed. It is useful to note that Dispel Stasis in the Mansion of Blood addresses Blood stagnation in the Upper and Middle Burners, while Dispel Stasis in the Lower Burner addresses Blood stagnation in the Lower Burner.


Combine with Replenish the Right for further Kidney Yang tonification. Combine with Fire the Yang if simultaneous Ying and Kidney Yang are underlying the pattern.
