Shen Gem / Health Concerns
An Unusual Herbal Supplement
modified GUI PI WAN Herbal Formula
When we think of Spleen tonics we are usually intending herbs for digestive disharmony with symptoms such as low appetite, loose stool, low energy, etc. However, according to TCM, the Spleen has several lesser known functions that also require adjustment from time to time.
Shen Gem (GUI PI WAN) takes advantage of two of the Spleen's lesser known functions which support the body in other ways.
The Foundations of Chinese Medicine declares that, "When spleen qi is deficient, it can not hold the blood in the vessels and bleeding appears from various sources." This is called deficiency bleeding and it may take forms such as bruising easily, or functional bleeding from various orifices.
This is deficiency or vacuity bleeding, resulting from a QI deficiency, as opposed to the excess bleeding that might stem from trauma or heat in the blood, both of which can also cause the blood to leave the vessels. Shen Gem and GUI PI WAN address this by strengthening that aspect of the Spleen which maintains the patency of the vessels, perhaps by strengthening the vessel walls or perhaps by some other, still mysterious, mechanism.
Shen Gem (GUI PI WAN) also benefits the relation between the Spleen and the Heart. If the blood making functions of the Spleen are impaired, Heart Blood may be diminished. This deficiency results in complaints of difficulty falling asleep, loss of memory, weakened concentration, and short attention span. This formula contains herbs like LONG YAN ROU, SUAN ZAO REN, FU LING, and YUAN ZI to strengthen Heart Blood, often permitting sounder sleep, sharper focus, and better memory.
