Next is Shen Tong Zhu Yu Tang. This formula is fundamentally a Blood moving and boosting formula. Blood stagnation, in TCM, can be the root of many different types of condition and in the clinic I’ve come across many eg joint pain, headaches, varicose veins, heart conditions, broken capillaries and migraines to name a few. This formula is great at getting the blood moving again and relieving symptoms. When Blood stagnation settles in, pain is the most prevalent symptom, but can be eased when Blood starts moving again.
