This is the classic Chinese formula, Gastrodia and Uncaria Decoction (Tian Ma Gou Teng Yin) used to treat the syndrome presentation of ascendant liver yang with internal movement of liver wind, caused by liver and kidney yin deficiency and exuberant liver yang.
Gastrodia (tian ma), uncaria (gou teng), and abalone shell (shi jue ming) calm the liver and extinguish internal wind. Gardenia (zhi zi) and scute (huang qin) clear heat and drain fire. Leonurus (yi mu cao) promotes blood circulation so that blood does not rise to the head with ascending liver yang. Cyathula (chuan niu xi) conducts blood downward and along with eucommia (du zhong) and loranthus (sang ji sheng) nourishes and tonifies the liver and kidney. Polygonum stem (ye jiao teng) and fu shen are added to calm the spirit and resolve insomnia.
