90 tablets, 700mgsPRACTITIONER NOTES:
This formula will work for a variety of etiologies, but it is most suited for constipation arising from deficiency of Yin or Blood. Dr. Shen's Rhubarb Rx draws on two versions of Run Chang Wan (Moisten Intestines Pill). It uses Mai Men Dong (Opthopogon) instead of Huo Ma Ren (Marijuana seeds), making the formula more tonifying without loss of lubrication. Cooked or processed rhubarb can have an astringent, binding effect. Dr. Shen's Rhubarb Rx uses quality unprocessed Chinese rhubarb rhizome. This maximizes the plant's anthraglycosides, potentiating its laxative properties. Therefore, this product should not be used to treat diarrhea, and is always contraindicated for patients with loose stool, spleen deficiency or diarrhea. Like any strong downward-draining medicine, Dr. Shen's Rhubarb Rx should not be used during pregnancy.
