The Chinese herbal formula, Yi-Qi-Fu-Sheng consists of (but not limited to,

some of the following herbs:

 

Radix Codonopsis Pilosulae (Dang Shen), 15g

Mixfried Radix Astragali Membranacei (Huang Qi) 15g

Rhizoma Atractylodis Macrocephalae (Bai Zhu), 9g

Radix Angelicae Sinensis (Dang Gui) 9g

Radix Ligustici Wallichii (Chuan Xiong) 9g

Prepared Radix Rehmanniae (Shu Di), 15g,

Fructus Schizandrae Chinensis (Wu Wei Zi) 9g

Uncooked Fructus Germinatus Hordei Vulgaris (Mai Ya), 30g

Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae (Chen Pi), 9g

Uncooked Concha Ostreae (Mu Li), 30g

Mix-fried Radix Glycyrrhizae (Zhi Gan Cao), 6g

 

Each prescription is formulated for a specific patient; some herbs are included,

some are avoided in the final mix.

 

No-one should self medicate; a qualified TCM physician, or qualified herbalist is necessary,

if poisoning oneself is not on the agenda.

 

Best of health,

 

John
