Ba Zhen Wan - Anemia, Heavy Menstruation, Dizziness, Weakness Herbal Formula
Uses: Anemia, Heavy Menstruation, Dysmenorrhea (Cramps), Dizziness, Weakness. Ba Zhen Wan (Pian), also seen as "Women's Eight Treasure Pills" is a widely used formula to strengthen the energy of the body, primarily in women. From a Chinese perspective when our Qi is weakened from stress, illness, blood loss (heavy cycles, surgery, ...), among other causes, we will not feel our best. Within Chinese Medicine special attention is paid to the quality of the "blood" which is more than what circulates in our veins, it is the deep nourishment of our body, the groundedness of our minds and that which gives us lasting energy. Weaknesses of Qi and Blood from a Chinese perspective can lead to palpitations, shortness of breath, dislike of speaking (too much effort), weak limbs, fatigue, poor appetite, and more. From a western perspective these signs may arise with diagnoses such as anemia, but that is not a necessary part of the equation. A history of heavy menstruation, particularly with painful cramps, is often underlying this imbalance, the tongue may appear pale with a thin and/or white coating, and is what this formula excels at resolving.*
