[ANALYSIS OF FORMULA]:This is a common formula for calming ascaris to stop pain. According to the theory that ascaris will be calmed it encountering the sour flavor, will be subsided if encountering the pungent flavor, and will be ex­pelled if encountering the bitter flavor, black plum act as the main herb to calm ascaris for stopping pain with its sour flavor. As the assistant herbs, pricklyash peel and asarum herb, with their pungent flavor, can warm the viscera, expel cold as well as subside ascaris; cassia twig and prepared aconite lateral root can strengthen the power of warming the interior and dispelling cold; coptis root and phellodendron bark, with their bitter flavor, can purge ascaris and clear away the stomach-heat. Ginseng and Chinese angelica root act as the adjuvant herbs to rein­force both qi and blood. Honey is the dispatcher to harmonize all the components.

In the present clinic, this formula has certain curative effects for biliary asca­riasis. It can also be applied to chronic dysentery and chronic gastroenteritis per­taining to upper heat and lower cold with deficiency of both qi and blood.
