Woman's Balance (Dan Zhi Xiao Yao)
Woman’s Balance is based on Bupleurum Sedative Pills (Xiao Yao Wan) and Bupleurum and Peony modified formula (Dan Zhi Xiao Yao Wan) for the treatment of PMS, regulation of menstruation and relief of mild depression. Cyperus (xiang fu) and orange (zhi shi) are included in the formula to disperse stagnant Qi and dampness associated with abdominal bloating and breast swelling. Chinese salvia (dan shen) is included to promote the circulation of blood and relieve menstrual pain and inflammation. Woman’s Balance is especially useful when the liver qi stagnation is owing to blood deficiency and when there are heat symptoms present.
