Angelica Pubescens & Taxillus Decoction
This formula is a slight modification of Sun Si-maio’s famous formula of this name found in his Tang dynasty Qian Jin Yao Fang (Essential Formulas [worth a] Thousand [Pieces of] Gold) published in 652 CE. Hua Jiao (Pericarpium Zanthoxyli) has been substituted for Xi Xin (Herba Asari) since this latter ingredient contains the nephrotoxin aristolochic acid. Our version is a 10:1 powdered extract in 500 mg gelatin capsules.

Formula explanation: Within this formula, Du Huo is the sovereign. It tracks down and searches out hidden or deep-lying wind, scatters cold, and eliminates dampness from the lower burner and sinews and bones. Hua Jiao emits and scatters wind cold from the yin channels and sweeps away wind dampness from out of the sinews and bones, thus stopping pain. Fang Feng dispels wind evils and overcomes dampness. Qin Jiao eliminates wind dampness and relaxes the sinews. Sang Ji Sheng, Du Zhong, and Niu Xi dispel wind dampness while simultaneously supplementing the liver and kidneys. Dang Gui, Chuan Xiong, Shu Di Huang, and Bai Shao nourish the blood while simultaneously quickening the it. Ren Shen and Fu Ling supplement the qi and fortify the spleen. Rou Gui warms and frees the flow of the blood vessels, and Gan Cao regulates and harmonizes all these other medicinals. Thus this formula as a whole attacks and dispels evils at the same time as it supplements and supports the righteous.
