This is an ancient formula traditionally known as Wu Ling San. While it was originally designed to address external patterns that give rise to water metabolism problems, it has evolved to include water metabolism issue from other causes as well. An accumulation of fluids produces edema, and sensations of heaviness. There may be congested fluids below the navel causing pulsations, or congestion of fluids in the lungs causing shortness of breath or coughing. Due to the excess fluids the digestive system is disrupted, which may cause vomiting and/or diarrhea

Alisma (ze xie), poria (fu ling), and polyporus (zhu ling) leach dampness and promote urination. Together they help drain heat from the bladder. In addition, poria and white atractylodes (bai zhu) strengthen the spleen, which aids in the transformation and transportation of fluids. Cinnamon bark (rou gui) assists the bladder in discharging urine and dispels pathogens from the exterior. Cinnamon bark also warms the gate of vitality, which, in turn, helps the spleen qi regulate dampness.
