Da Huang Fu Zi Tang
English Name: Rhubarb and Aconite Accessory Root Decoction
Source: Essentials from the Golden Cabinet (c. 220)
Ingredients for 1 bulk herb vacuum sealed bag:
|Zhi Fu Zi (Aconiti Radix lateralis preparata)||18g|
|Da Huang (Rhei Radix et Rhizoma) (full cook)||18g|
|Xi Xin (Asari Radix et Rhizoma) (granular)*||2.4g|
* Currently it is illegal to use bulk Xi Xin in the United States for internal use. Therefore we use a certified aristolic acid free granular version. It is a 5:1 extract and the dosage is adjusted accordingly. It should be dissolved into the strained decoction.
Suggested dose: 1 bag over 2-4 days. The above dosage is doubled from the original source.
The above formula has been slightly modified to suit modern clinical practice in the United States. Please send us an email if you have any questions about this.
