Calm The Digestive And Respiratory System†
Summertime evokes care-free scenes of spending time outdoors, enjoying barbecues and family get together. But it’s not all fun under the sun when the weather gets hot and humid. Because of the heat and humidity, you can feel nauseous and lightheaded. Also, food is more likely to spoil when it’s hot outside. And it’s not just the extreme heat that can strike you down; the cold of artificial air cooling can penetrate your skin, especially if you‘re sleeping without a shirt on and kicking off the covers. Drinking ice-cold beverages to quench your thirst can also cause unpleasant symptoms.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, external factors, including weather change (both natural and man-made) and wrong food, can invade the body's exterior, causing common digestive upsets such as food stagnation, belly cramping, loose stools, an urge to throw up or bloating. And when the external factors invade the respiratory tract, symptoms may manifest such as coughing, chills and other unpleasant feelings that share similarities with the common cold. Such discomforts are attributed in TCM terms to Dampness and Cold.
Famous Formula Disperses Dampness To Harmonize The Stomach†
Stomacare is one formula we recommend always keeping at your house and taking with you when you go on vacation. For example, let’s say you have a family cruise coming up. Stomacare may protect you in case Dampness or Cold strikes.
A household remedy in China for gastrointestinal discomfort, Stomacare is widely used for traveling and outdoor activities, especially during the summer.
When your body’s defense has been weakened by an external influence, Qi goes up when it should go down, and vice versa. This is known as “rebellious Qi.” Normally, the Lungs and Stomach direct Qi downwards, while the Spleen directs it upwards. Rebellious stomach Qi produces the above-mentioned unpleasant symptoms.
How Does Stomacare Work?
Stomacare acts to relieve the exterior, transform dampness, regulate Qi, and harmonize the middle Jiao.
Huo Xiang (Patchouli) transforms turbidity and arrests vomiting. Zi Su Ye (Perilla Leaf) disperses Cold and promotes Qi movement to harmonize the stomach. Bai Zhi (Angelica Root) disperses wind and expels dampness. Da Fu Pi (Areca Peel) moves Qi downward to ease the Middle Jiao.
Bai Zhu (Atractylodes Rhizome) tonifies the Spleen and augments Qi as well as dries dampness and stops sweating. Fu Ling (Poria) leaches out dampness and strengthens the Spleen. Zhi Ban Xia (Pinellia Rhizome) dissolves phlegm to harmonize the stomach. Hou Po (Magnolia Bark) dries dampness and transforms phlegm as well as moves Qi downward, thereby resolving distension.
Jie Geng (Platycodon Root) ventilates the Lungs and dispels phlegm. Chen Pi (Dried Tangerine Peel) regulates Qi and strengthens the Spleen and also dries dampness. Both Gan Cao (Licorice Root) and Da Zao (Chinese Date) tonify the Spleen and augment Qi.
Does Research Support Stomacare?
An oral liquid preparation of Huo Xiang Zheng Qi formula was found to protect the intestinal mucosal barrier.1
