This formula contains the same herbs as Liver Balance, but in a highly concentrated blend. Liver Balance is designed to support the needs of a stressed wood constitution. The Chinese call this formula tiao he, which can be translated to mean “harmonizing.” In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is used to support both the digestive and nervous systems, optimizing liver health and reducing stress. Its primary herbs—scute, peony, bupleurum and atractylodes—have been used traditionally to maintain normal nervous system function during mental stress and to support the upper digestive system during tension and distress. Bupleurum is the most important “cooling herb” according to Chinese herbology. It is believed to aid the upward flow of chi, or the body’s living force, thereby strengthening the body against stress. Other herbs support these functions in what the Chinese referto as a “wood-reducing” formula.
