In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan can nourish the spleen and promote Qi due to the Qi deficiency. The central Qi provides the vital energy of the body including the internal organs and physical activities. When Qi is weak, the organs like stomach, uterus, and rectum fail to support themselves and thus droop; the body loses the physical strength and shows fatigue, tiredness, weakness, laziness of speech.
Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia1 for replenishing Qi, elevating the spleen Yang to cure drooping; for fatigue and lack of physical strength; for prolapse of internal organs such as rectum prolapse, uterus prolapse, and stomach prolapse.
Modern biomedical studies have found many beneficial actions of Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang that support its traditional use. Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang can increase the activity of natural killer cells in the blood and increase the serum level of interferon-gamma (IFN-g), which are crucial in our body’s defense against pathogens, and thus Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang enhances the immune function and protects the body from infections of bacteria and virus and from immmunosuppression due to radiotherapy, chemotherapy, or stress in animal and human2-5. In controlled human trials, Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang can significantly improve the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome after 8 to 12 weeks of administration, including the intensity and frequency of fatigue occurrence. When Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang is applied as adjuvant therapy of cancer patients before and after chemotherapy and surgery, the patients showed improved fatigue and tiredness, improved appetite and diarrhea, better spirit and recovery compared to the controls.
