Tian Ma Gou Teng Wan/San or Tian Ma Gou Teng Teapills/Powder are very useful for calming the Liver Organ System that is being affected by the Chinese Medicine patterns of both Wind Stirring and Yang Rising upward creating conditions such as: stuttering, spasms, excessive mood swings, tics or twitch, paralysis, stroke, seizures, epilepsy, arthritis, migraines and trigeminal neuralgia. Positive results have been outstanding when a regular regimen of Tian Ma Gou Teng has been adhered to.
The Liver Organ System, as a whole, is responsible for consistent regulation of Qi and Blood throughout the entire body. A disruption of this regulatory factor shows like a clock not keeping correct time, which in return, creates disharmonies leading to instabilities. Tian Ma Gou Teng Wan/San works by calming the liver, extinguishing wind, clearing heat, subduing liver yang, tonifying the liver and kidneys organ systems and invigorating the blood. By bringing down the unbridled yang and restoring the yin problems, especially in the head area, begin to resolve. Once again, the brilliance of Chinese Herbal Medicine is shown here by combining two different concepts together to address complex patterns leading to debilitating problems.
The Tian Ma Gou Teng formula has been used in clinical studies including: high blood pressure, lupus, tri-germinal neuralgia and has been shown to "quicken the and clean the blood".
