Chai Hu Long Gu Lu Mu Li literally means "Bupleurum plus Dragon Bone & Oyster Shell" in Chinese. It falls under the category of formulas that calm the spirit. Chai Hu Jia Long Gu Lu Li Tang originally appeared in the great classic of Chinese Medicine, the Shang Han Lun, over 1800 years ago. It was formulated for the treatment of the "three Yang stages" condition in the TCM term.
Today, the applications of this formula have expanded to include many situations due to fear or phlegm disturbing the Liver/Gallbladder system. The hallmark signs of this pattern are sensation of fullness in the chest, loss of temper, occasional heart pounding and signs of spirit disturbance. According to Chinese Medicine, the spirit (Shen) resides in the Heart. When the Heart is disturbed (as by fear or heat) it cannot reside peacefully and may 'float upwards' leading to the above signs. Typically, this pattern presents with a rapid, wiry pulse and the tongue is red with a greasy coat.
Gui Zhi (Cinnamon) is a chief herb in the formula used to resolve the Tai Yang, which is the most exterior of the three stages. Gui Zhi promotes the flow of Yang Qi (energy) which helps relieve the feeling of fullness in the chest and body. The chief herbs Chai Hu (Bupleurum) and Huang Qin (Scutellaria) work on the Shao Yang stage to cool and support the Gallbladder and Liver, promote the proper movement of Qi, release the exterior and resolve phlegm. The final chief herb in the formula, Da Huang (Rhubarb root) addresses signs of Yang Ming stage disorder by purging heat, clearing dampness, and supporting the bowel movement.
The assistant group of herbs includes Long Gu (Dragon bone) and Mu Li (Oyster shell) which are heavy mineral substances which anchor and subdue Liver Yang and the floating spirit. Combined with Ren Shen (Ginseng) and Fu Ling (Poria), the assistant group strengthens the Spleen Qi, supports urine flow and calms the spirit. Zhi Ban Xia (Prepared Pinellia) also has a descending action and works with Fu Ling, Chai Hu and Huang Qin to resolve phlegm in the Shao Yang stage.
Chai Hu Long Gu Mu Li Pian is a complex formula containing an elegant combination of herbs that are both warm and cold, ascending and descending. Great care should be exercised in TCM pattern differentiation before application of this formula.
