Ban Xia Bai Zhu Tian Ma Wan - Dizziness, Vertigo, Herbal Formula

Uses: Headache, Dizziness, Cold Limbs, Irritable. Ban Xia Bai Zhu Tian Ma Wan (Pian) translates into english as the "Pinellia, Atractylodis and Gastrodia Combination" formula. From a Chinese perspective injury (from stress, illness, poor dietary habits) to the Stomach and Spleen system can lead to problems of dampness in the body. Dampness can be thought of as a heavy sensation in the body and it can interrupt digestion, thinking, and settle into particular areas such as the head (i.e. headaches). ($8.99)
