Formula Rationale

Source Qi was formulated based on the clinical observations of Misha Cohen, OMD, L.Ac. and Andrew Gaeddert in treating cryptosporidiosis in AIDS and other chronic diarrhea patients. The formula was tested in an earlier form at the Quan Yin Healing Arts Center and in various private practices, and adjusted by the formulators according to the accumulated experience.
The chief herb is ailanthus (chun bai pi), which clears heat, eliminates dampness, and binds the intestines; it is used primarily for chronic diarrhea, and has an anti-parasitic action. The remainder of the formula is warming. Astragalus (huang qi), which tonifies the spleen and augments the Qi, and along with ginseng (bai ren shen), helps resolve lack of appetite, fatigue, and diarrhea. White atractylodes (bai zhu) addresses weakness, lassitude, and loose stools associated with spleen deficiency, and red atractylodes (cang zhu) tonifies the spleen and dispels dampness. Poria (fu ling) regulates water metabolism and resolves dampness. Dioscorea (shan yao), lotus seed (lian zi), and euryale (qian shi), all tonify the spleen and relieve chronic diarrhea. Cimicifuga (sheng ma) raises the yang and lifts sunken Qi, and guides the effects of the other herbs upward. Charcoaled ginger (gan jiang) warms the middle and expels cold, and restores the yang from collapse; charcoaling directs the effectiveness of the herbs toward the lower abdomen. Fried bupleurum (chai hu) raises the yang qi in spleen/stomach deficiency patterns and treats diarrhea due to collapse of spleen qi. Nutmeg seed (rou dou kou) warms the spleen and stomach and is used primarily for cold type diarrhea. Baked licorice (zhi gan cao) resolves spleen/stomach deficiency type diarrhea accompanied by thirst, and harmonizes the formula. Radish seed (lai fu zi) relieves food stagnation and eliminates bloating.

Clinical Notes

1. In addition to its other actions, ailanthus has been found in clinical studies to have an anti-parasitic effect, which appear to be useful in this formula since some types of chronic diarrhea are caused by parasite infestation
2. Results with this herbal formula should be seen within the first two weeks. However, to consolidate the effects, the formula should be continued for another two weeks after the diarrhea stops
3. This formula has been used successfully to treat diarrhea associated with chronic shigellosis
4. See Health Concerns Newsletter: Vol. 5 No. 1 Page 2 Chinese Herbal Treatment of Chronic Digestive Disorders, Part Two (Gaeddert)
