Consolidate Qi was released from “Tai Ping Formulas of welfare dispensary” issued by the state in the Song Dynasty of China, which was made by adding strengthening Spleen and removing Dampness herbs to the Four Gentlemen Formula.
It is an important formulation for the treatment of chronic diarrhea and bowel sounds due to Spleen Deficiency and Dampness. It is clinically used for chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic diarrhea, chronic gastritis, chronic colitis, gastric or duodenal ulcers, or increased white vaginal discharge. Modern researches show that this formulation can regulate gastrointestinal motility, improve metabolism, and improve immunity.
Edited by Yu Zhen in the Qing Dynasty, published in 1778 in “Ancient and Modern Medical Records”:
A woman has diarrhoea for three days before every menstruation. Her pulse is weak.
Diagnosis: Spleen deficiency fails to transform dampness and causes diarrhoea. She took Consolidate Qi powder, 3 grams 2 to 3 times a day, each time with rice porridge. After taking the medicine for a month, the diarrhoea disappeared before her menstruation.
