ABOUT THE HERBS

Spleen Support Formula (Wei Ling Tang), was first recorded in The Teachings of Dan Xi by Zhu Zhen-Heng in 1481.

Spleen Support Formula addresses Spleen Qi deficiency with secondary Dampness accumulation. Rather than being overly tonifying like Six GentlePets (Liu Jun Zi Tang), it strengthens the Spleen simply by warming and drying it.

Since Spleen deficiency is the primary pattern affecting cats, Spleen Support Formula is one of the most important formulas for cats. Cang-zhu atractylodes rhizome and Magnolia bark both dry Damp. Magnolia bark additionally disperses stasis from the abdomen, while Cang-zhu atractylodes rhizome warms the Spleen and Stomach.

Tangerine dried rind of mature fruit assists in moving the Qi of the abdomen while also “cutting” the Damp.

Ginger rhizome and Red jujube fruit tonify the Stomach and Spleen, respectively, without being cloying.

Chinese licorice root and rhizome tonifies the Spleen and Stomach Qi while also harmonizing the formula as a whole.

Asian water plantain rhizome, Japanese helwingia pith and Poria drain Damp and promote urination.

White atractylodes rhizome tonifies the Spleen to reduce the production of Damp.

Chinese cinnamon bark warms the Yang of the Middle Burner and supports healthy production and discharge of urine by

the Bladder.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • My vet gave me Huo Xiang Zheng Qi Wan,. My cat is 1 point above normal value for T4 and have potential digestive issues, salivates. My other cat has full blown IBD with serious absorption issues and is now on prednisilone( he goes to a regular vet). I mentioned Wei Ling Tang to both and they were not familiar they were trained in Fl with Dr Xie. They are both very highly respected vets. I have read that the Wei Ling Tang really works for thyroid and is good to rebuild digestive wall. Is Huo Xiang Zheng Qi Wan just as effective?

    Thank you for your question! I'm sorry to hear your cats are dealing with digestive issues, but I am glad you're looking into alternatives to help them feel better. Our veterinarians are not familiar with Huo Xiang Zheng Qi Wan, but they looked it up and since it has similar actions and Chinese indications as Wei Ling Tang, they suspect it would have a comparable effect. However, we can't say for sure since we don't carry that product yet or use it in our clinics. However, we're always looking for new products to carry and try out, and we've passed the name of that formula to our product development and testing team! If you're interested in buying Spleen Support Formula (Wei Ling Tang) from us please request authorization from your vet here: https://tcvmpet.com/pages/get-an-authorization. Your vet can write in the name of the formula. Thank you for supporting Chinese Medicine!
