Abstract

In this case, Xu Shuwei discusses the differences between two of the most important formulas in the Treatise – the Major and Minor Bupleurum Decoctions. Major Bupleurum Decoction comprises of two chief herbs: Bupleurum (chai hu), which vents heat from the exterior, and Rhubarb Root and Rhizome (da huang), which drains it from the interior. This formula is based on two formulas: Minor Bupleurum Decoction (xiao chai hu tang) and Major Order-the-Qi Decoction (da cheng qi tang).
