Alternative Names

  • Wu Ji Wan

This is a variation of Zuo Jin Wan (often called 6 to 1 powder) that is used for h-pylori infection. Wikipedia says of “Zuojin Wan (左金丸) is a yellowish-brown pill used in Traditional Chinese medicine to “quench liver-fire, regulate the stomach function and relieve pain”. Indications include an “attack of the stomach by liver-fire marked by epigastric and hypochondriac pain, bitterness in the mouth, heartburn and acid regurgitation, and a dislike for hot drinks””

Ingredients

Huang Lian 黃蓮 coptis rhizome Rhizoma Coptidis

If heart burn “burns” then Huang Lian “cools”. That’s exactly how Chinese medicine thinks about it too.

Wu Zhu Yu 吳茱萸 evodia fruit Fructus Evodiae Rutaecarpae

This herb harmonizes the Liver and Stomach. To put that into modern terms, it regulates the downward moving function of the stomach via the nervous system.

Bai Shao 白芍 white peony root, peony Paeoniae Radix alba [supports pregnancy]

This herb also harmonizes the Liver and Stomach, but mostly focuses on calming the Liver. An upset Liver usually results in the Liver taking it out on the Stomach (in the case of heartburn) and the Spleen (in the case of lower intestinal complaints.) In either case, we can think of Bai Shao as regulating the nervous system, because nobody’s digestion likes to feel nervous

When symptoms are not present, take 1/2 level teaspoon (4 capsules), two times daily. Empty stomach is best for efficient absorption, but not essential. [More…]

At this dosage, your order will last approximately this long (?):

  1. This is another one of those formulas with a large dosage of a really bitter herb (huang lian). Works great for what it does of course, but it can be challenging for those who aren’t so crazy about funky tastes.

    So, if you have any doubt, be sure to order the capsules rather than the extract powder. That way you won’t have to taste it. Good news is that, although I usually say that the powders work better, because the number of herbs in this formula is so small, the capsules are pretty good too.

  2. Plz contact me. I want to consult for my mother disease. Plz reply soon
