Chapter Fifteen Formulae for Wind

Formulae for wind are mainly composed of herbs which have the effects of dispelling wind with their pangent flavors and stopping wind to relieve convulsion. They all have the curative effect of expelling exogenous wind and stopping endogenous wind and they are used to treat diseases due to wind attack.
The scope of wind diseases is very wide and the changes of disease conditions are varied. But to he summed up, it can be divided into “exogenous wind diseases” and “endogenous wind diseases”. The exogenous wind diseases refer to that the wind evil attacks the human budy and stays in muscles, meridians, tendons, hones and joints, and then leads to symptons of headache, aversion to wind, cutaneoos itch, numbness of limbs, spasmodic pain of tendons and hones, stiffness of joints, or wry mooth with distorted eyes, even opisthotonus. The wind evil is regarded as the main cause for major diseases and it is easy for wind to combine with cold, dampness, dryness and heat evils. So the types of syndromes can be divided into wind-heat, wind dampness, wind cold and so on. In addition, tetanus eoosed by poisonous wind evil entering meridians throogh wounded skin is also classified into the category of exogenous wind diseases. The eodogenoos wind diseases are mostly resulted from visceral dysfunetions, especially closely related to the liver and the kidney. There are several main pathological mechanisms for endogenous wind diseases such as extremely heat causing wind, upwards disturbance of the liver wind, yin deficiency producing endogenous wind and blood deficiency leading to endogenous wind, etc. The common clinical symptoms are vertigo, tremor, spasm of limbs, disability of feet, aphasia or blurred speech, or sudden syneope with unconsciousness, deviation of mouth and eyes, hemiplegia and so on. For the treatment, the exogenous wind should he expelled and the endogeoous wind should be stopped. Therefore, formulae for wind are divided into some for expelling exogenous wind amid some for stopping endogenous wind.
The wind diseases are complicated and changeable, so whenever applying forniulae for wind, it is necessary to discern the endogenoos or exogenous category, and to distinguish the types of cold, heat, deficiency and excess. For the exogenous wiod, it can only be dispelled but not be stopped, and for the endugenous wind it can only be stopped but not be dispelled with pungent-flavored herbs. As for wind
307
evil complicated by cold, beat, dampness or phlegni, the corresponding therapies, such as dispelling cold, clearing away heat, resolving dampness or resolving phlegm, should be used simultaneously. In addition, the exogenous wind and en dogenous wind can affect each other. The endogenoos wind can be induced by the exogenous wind which, on the contrary, can also be complicated by the endogenous wind. So it is obviously important to modify formulae flexibly according to these changeable conditions in cliuic.
Section 1 Formulae for Dispelling Exogenous Wind
Formulae for dispelling the exogenous wind are suitable to various diseases caused by the exogenous wind. It is very easy for the wind evil to attack the human body by taking the chance of geuuine-qi insufficiency and of the loose interstitial space, and it thus leads to wind diseases. Because there is difference in light arid heavy attack, and in strong or weak constitution, the syndromes caused by wind evil are different, too. For the exterior syndrome, it should be treated with exterior relieving formulae (seen in chapter one). The exogenous wind diseases discussed in this section are those manifested by headache, vertigo, rashes, aching pain of limbs, numbness of limbs, stiffness of joints, wry mouth with distorted eyes, aphasia or blurred speech, end those symptoms due to tetanus such as lockjaw, spasm of limbs and apisthotonus. They should be treated by therapy of dispelling exogenous wind and the formulae are mainly composed of these commonly used herbs such as sehizonepeta, ledehouriella rout, ehuanxiong rhizome large leaf gentien root, notopterygium root, pubescent angeliea root, white mustard seed, an saeme tuber and so on.
If the wind evil is transformed into heat, a combination with seotellaria root, gypsum and rehmannia root to clear away heat and ta cool blood is necessary; if the wind evil injures the yin-blood, Chinese engelica root, white peony root and prepared rehmannia rout should be used to noorish blood for moistening dryness; for the severe spasm of limbs, scorpion and gentipede can be chosen to expel wind for relieving spasm; for wind complicated by cold evil, siehuan aeonite ront, wild aeonite root, prepared aconite lateral root and cinnamon bark should be osed to warm meridians for dispelling cold. The representative formulae are Major Large Leaf Gantian Deeoetion, Wind Dispelling Powder, Tea-Blended Ligostieum Pow der, Wry Face Powder, Minor Collateral Activating Pellets, ate.
