This is an example of Jiao Shu-De using Bai He to boost Qi and Harmonise the Middle instead of its usual functions of clearing Heat and nourishing Heart and Lung Yin. It is mainly used as a base upon which to build other formulas such as San He Tang which consists of this formula plus Liang Fu Wan and Dan Shen Yin and is especially useful where Heart and Stomach pathologies may be combined or overlap.
