Benefit Hips and Knees by Kan Herbs - Essentials

Benefit Hips and Knees (Xiao Chai Hu Jia Qin Jiao Tang) contains all of the herbs in the classical formula Minor Bupleurum (Xiao Chai Hu Tang), one of the world’s oldest, most important and most widely used herbal formulas. The formula was published in the Shang Han Lun (Treatise on Cold Febrile Disease) by Zhang Zhong-Jing as early as 200 A.D., and was originally developed to expel deeply penetrated invasions lodged in the Shao Yang (Lesser Yang), which is the innermost layer of Yang right next to the body’s Yin core. While the indication may seem obscure, it is the most important formula to ensure the smooth flow of Qi along the longitudinal axis of the body (i.e. the Triple Burner) as well as from the body core to the limbs (i.e. the Gallbladder channel). Large-leaf gentian root is specifically added to guide the formula to enter the Gallbladder channel and to expel Wind Damp from the channels. The herbs in the foundational formula are as follows: Cool and pungent Bupleurum root expels invasion of the Shao Yang by expanding forcefully upwards and outwards, clearing the Gallbladder channel in the process. Bitter cold Chinese skullcap root descends Yang from the Upper Burner, to where it can reintegrate with the Lower Burner to generate Qi. Chinese red ginseng root and rhizome, Red jujube fruit and Chinese licorice root and rhizome address any Qi deficiency that has occurred following the failure of Yang and Yin to merge. Licorice cured Pinellia rhizome transforms any Phlegm obstructions of the Gallbladder channel and the Triple Burner. Ginger rhizome harmonizes the Middle Burner, helping to direct rebellious Qi down and expel Wind Damp invasions. Benefit Hips and Knees Formula was specifically designed to address the more superficially located disharmonies associated with Gallbladder channel obstruction. Open the Liver Canals(Xiao Chai Hu Jia Yu Jin Tang) is used when there is obstruction of the Triple Burner producing signs of stasis at the level of the blockage in the upper abdomen.
