Woman’s Balance is based on Bupleurum Sedative Pills (Xiao Yao Wan) and Bupleurum and Peony modified formula (Dan Zhi Xiao Yao Wan) for the treatment of PMS, regulation of menstruation and relief of mild depression. Cyperus (xiang fu) and citrus (chen pi) are included in the formula to disperse stagnant Qi and dampness associated with abdominal bloating and breast swelling. Salvia (dan shen) is included to promote the circulation of blood and relieve menstrual pain and inflammation. Woman’s Balance is especially useful when the liver qi stagnation is based on blood deficiency and when there are heat symptoms present.

Clinical Notes

1. If there is a lot of repressed anger, begin using Woman’s Balance on alternate days for the first two weeks, or select Heavenly Water instead. Heavenly Water is more tonifying and less heat clearing than Woman’s Balance and contains chaste tree berry and does not contain bupleurum. It is used for similar applications

2. Can also be used for men with liver qi stagnation, spleen qi deficiency, and liver blood deficiency leading to digestive upset and depression from emotional stresses

3. For weak or anemic patients with PMS or menstrual irregularity consider Eight Treasures during the first half of the menstrual cycle and Woman’s Balance during the second half
