Ping Wei San is a TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) herbal blend that helps chronic indigestion in dogs, cats and horses.
The Western Medical indication for this formula is indigestion.
The Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine indications for this formula are abdominal fullness, anorexia, Damp accumulation in Spleen, diarrhea, lethargy, a pulse that is slippery, and a tongue that is pale.
At our clinic, pets often receive an Eastern exam (Traditional Chinese Medicine) in combination with the standard veterinary exam. Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy is very different than our standard Western medical philosophy. Traditional Chinese Medicine focuses on balance and finding the cause of the problem rather than simply masking symptoms with prescription medicines. Through Eastern examination techniques, we can choose herbal blends that will both treat symptoms and at the same time correct the imbalances in your pet’s body that are causing the symptoms. This herb is only one of the many TCM herbal blends available for our doctors to choose from based on the results of the Eastern exam.
Ping We San is an herbal blend specially formulated with herbs specifically chosen to work synergistically to relieve symptoms of chronic indigestion while at the same time addressing the underlying causes of these symptoms. The Chinese principles of treatment for this herbal blend are to dispel Dampness, strengthen the Spleen Qi, and move the Stomach Qi downward.
The main ingredients in the Mi Mu Di Huang formula are:
- Cang Zhu (Atractylodes) to dry up Damp and strengthen Spleen
- Chen Pi (Citrus) to move Qi and dry up Damp
- Da Zao (Jujube) to regulate Spleen and Stomach
- Gan Cao (Glycyrrhiza) to harmonize
- Gan Jiang (Zingiberis) to regulate Spleen and Stomach
- Hou Po (Magnolia Obovata) to move Qi and resolve stagnation
This herbal blend is derived from the ancient Chinese herbal formula Ping Wei San from Tai Pin Hui Min He Ji Ju Fang which was written in 1080 by Chen Shi-Wen et al.
