This one is personal: this is the formula I have been on for quite a while now. It lives up to its translation of “All Inclusive Great Tonifying Decoction.” It is kind of an all-purpose formula in that it tonifies all four of the basic substances: qi, blood, yin, and yang.

Every other week an exciting new episode of the Sperb’s Herbs podcast is recorded. Each episode covers another Chinese or world herb or formula and will go into great depth about it. Besides covering the basics of the formula including category, and functions of both the formula and the individual herbs in the formula, we will explore the history, science, pharmacology, evidence, and any potential interactions of each formula. And then there is always something a little quirky about an episode. Whether that is a unique story or an interesting perspective, there will always be something different to learn about episode’s formula.
