Ban Xia Xie Xin Tang by Blue Poppy’s Great Nature Classics is a formula that is a variation of Minor Buplerum Deoction (xiao chai hu tang) in which bupleuri radix (chai hu) and zingiberis rhizoma resens (sheng jiang) have been replaced by coptidis rhizoma (huang lian) and zingiberis rhizoma (gan jiang).
This formula is used for improper purging of an exterior or half-exterior, half-interior condition in a patient with underlying Spleen and Stomach deficiency.
