Zhu ye shi gao tang(Lophatherum and Gypsum Decoction )

[SOURCE]:Treatise on Cold-Attack INGREDIENTS:

Bamboo leaf 15g , Gypsum 30g,  Pinellia tuber 9g , Ophiopogon root 15g,  Ginseng 5g,  Licorice root 3g,  Round-grain rice 15g

[DIRECTIONS] Decoct the above herbs in water for oral administration until the rice is well-done.

[EFFECTS]:Clearing heat and promoting generation of body fluid, reinforcing qi and harmonizing stomach.

[INDICATIONS]: After suffering from cold-attack, warm-disease, or summer- heat disease, the remaining heat exists with injury of both qi and body fluid manilested by fever, profuse sweating, distress of chest, nausea or vomiting, dryness of mouth with desire for drinking, or insomnia due to deficient vexation, weakness, shortness of breath, feeble and rapid pulse, red tongue with less coating.

[ANALYSIS OF FORMULA]: This formula is based on White Tiger Decoction by removing anemarrhena rhizome and adding bamboo leaf, ginseng, ophiopogon root and pinellia tuber, so that the extremely cold formula is changed into clearing and tonifying formula. As the main herbs, gypsum and bamboo leaf can clear the remaining heat of Yangming to relieve vexation. Ginseng and ophiopogon root act as the assistant herbs to reinforce qi and to promote generation of body fluid. Pinellia is the adjuvant herb to lower rebellious qi for relieving vomiting. As the dispatcher herbs, licorice root and round-grain rice harmonize the middle and Nourish the stomach. The nature of pinellia tuber is warm, but when it cooporates with the herbs generating body fluid and nourishing yin, in which especially the dosage of ophiopogon root is as twice as that of pinellia tuber, its warmness and Dryness are moderated. Thus, it is possible for pinellia tuber to lower the rebel­lious qi and assist the spleen in transporting the body fluid.
