About Pinellia Formula to Drain the Epigastrium

Pinellia Formula to Drain the Epigastrium is a Honso product that helps harmonize disorders related to the lesser Yang stage. The formula can effectively fight intestinal and stomach disharmony with Cold and Heat Complex in the Middle Jiao. This means that it will help descend rebellious Qi, balance the stomach, disperse clumping, masses, and accumulation, and relieve focal distention and fullness.

Pinellia Formula to Drain the Epigastrium can be used to treat loss of appetite, diarrhea, vomiting, retching, dry heaves, and epigastric stuffiness or tightness with no or very little pain. Also, overall, the formula combines well with other herbal remedies that also focus on harmonizing lesser Yang stage disorders.

How Pinellia Formula to Drain the Epigastrium Works

As its name suggests, the formula targets the epigastric organs, meaning the organs in the upper abdomen part (immediately over the stomach). These include most of the stomach, and part of the adrenal glands, the spleen, the duodenum, the pancreas, and the liver. For that reason, the ingredients and herbs in the product have been carefully chosen to target a wide range of channels in the human body, including the liver, gallbladder, large intestine, heart, spleen, stomach, and lungs. This means that the combination of the compounds used in the formula contributes to the promotion of good overall health and wellbeing.

In Western Medicine, Pinellia Formula is used to treat chronic hepatitis, chronic gastritis, acute gastroenteritis, hypersecretion of acid that result in the development of ulcers in the stomach, and the early stages of cirrhosis.

Pinellia Formula to Drain the Epigastrium Ingredients

The product is loaded with the following compounds:
