Conditions indicating the use of
Autumn is the best season in which a
bowel-cleansing therapy can be used.
In the bowel-cleansing, herbs in the form
of herbal tea are better than the pills or powder. Once the
bowel-cleansing solves the clinic Fullness condition in the
abdomen, stop to drink the remaining herbs.
If a person has diarrhea, but his pulse is
normal in the Chun, Guan and Chi positions, and his upper
stomach feels hard when press, use bowel-cleansing therapy as
soon as possible.
If a person has diarrhea, and his pulse is
slow and slippery, it indicates a Fullness condition inside that
causes the diarrhea. Use Da Chengqi Tang to remove the fullness
condition to stop the diarrhea.
Asked: how to know if a person has hosting
food in the abdomen? Master: the person has floating and big
pulse in the Chun position, which feels harsh when pressed deep
however. The pulse feels big and harsh in the Chi position as
well. For such hosting food condition, use Da Chengqi Tang.
If a person has an acute diarrhea and
dislike to eat, it means the digestive system is damaged by the
improper diet. If a person has chronic diarrhea and has little
appetite, it is the damage in the Spleen system. He should feel
fullness in the stomach after eating. If a person has an acute
diarrhea and has no appetite, it means he has hosting food in
the abdomen, so need Da Chengqi Tang to remove the hosting food
from the abdomen.
If a person has chronic diarrhea and it
stops for a while, now after one full year, his diarrhea comes
back again with the same clinic conditions, it means he has
hosting stool in the abdomen. For the treatment, use Da Chengqi
(continue the paragraph above) If he has
the new diarrhea again and the pulse is slippery, and his
general condition is pretty strong, diet is relatively normal,
it indicates that he has hosting stool in the abdomen that needs
to cleanse. Use Da Chengqi Tang.
If a person feels fullness, hard and pain
in the abdomen, it is a Fullness condition. Use bowel-cleansing
therapy, Da Chengqi Tang.
After a Shanghan disease, if the person has
a deep pulse, the deep pulse means an inside Fullness condition.
Use Da Chaihu Tang.
If the person has string pulse in the Guan
position of both wrists, he will have hardness feeling in the
upper stomach. If the pulse is big and tight, suggesting a
relatively strong Yang condition. Use Da Chengqi Tang.
 In nature, the Qi in the fall is
descending. It is a time to hold, to harvest, and to
collect. The nature of bowel-cleansing therapy is also
to descend the stool. It matches the movement of the Qi
in the nature.
 When a person has diarrhea, his
pulse should be weak and he should has Jue condition.
Now, his pulse is normal, calm, gentle, suggesting that
there is Fullness condition inside of the abdomen.
Therefore a bowel-cleansing therapy is needed.
 In original version, it is “weak”.
 If the person feels pain but no
fullness, it is a weak condition, not the fullness
condition. If the person has such fullness condition
(fullness, hardness, and pain in abdomen), the
bowel-cleansing therapy should be used, even if he is in
Taiyin, Shaoyin or Jueyin stages.
