Course Overview

Understanding Ban Xia Xie Xin Tang (BXXXT), its stucture and mechanics, provides insights into the importance of the qi dynamic in managing gastrointestinal problems. A member of the harmonising group of formulas, BXXXT demonstrates how the use of herbs with opposing natures and directional tendencies can drive and restore normal qi movement. While the main focus is on the middle burner qi dynamic, the principle can be extended to assist in rectifying other qi dynamics, the Heart Kidney axis, Spleen Lung (ying wei dysharmony) etc. We look at the directional tendencies of herbs and how to combine them to suit specific purposes.
