Pinyin Reference: Chai Hu Mu Li Long Gu Tang


Ease Plus is Chai Hu Mu Li Long Gu Tang (Bupleurum and Dragon Bone Decoction), with Vladimiria souliei (mu xiang) substituted for ju ju be (da zao) to promote better digestive functions. Rhubarb (da huang) eliminates heat through the intestines. Ginseng (ren shen) supports the spleen. Cinnamon (gui zhi) relieves the surface. Ginger (gan jiang) and pinellia (ban xia) transform phlegm. The formula harmonizes by dredging the liver and strengthening the spleen, thus preventing the liver from disrupting the digestion. Liver heat is also cleared by scute (huang qin) to prevent disturbance of heart shen by rising liver yang. Oyster shell (mu li) and Calcium
carbonate (long gu) weigh upon and hold down the heart shen. Ease Plus treats emotional disturbances that cause a combination of digestive problems, headache, nervousness, and insomnia.
