Edited by Yu Zhen in the Qing Dynasty, published in 1778 in “Ancient and Modern Medical Records”:

A woman has diarrhoea for three days before every menstruation. Her pulse is weak.

Diagnosis: Spleen deficiency fails to transform dampness and causes diarrhoea. She took Consolidate Qi powder, 3 grams 2 to 3 times a day, each time with rice porridge. After taking the medicine for a month, the diarrhoea disappeared before her menstruation.




Typical symptoms:

chronic fatigue

Disease description:

In chronic fatigue syndrome, also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis, the most common symptom is increasing severe exhaustion even during activities which are not very strenuous. The causes of the disease are suspected to be infections, immunity defects and hormonal disorders. Stress from work and private life also plays a role.

Explanation according to the Traditional Chinese Medicine:

Chinese medicine believes that the occurrence of chronic fatigue is mainly due to Qi Deficiency because of Blockage. It may be caused by external pathogens and disturbed internal organ. Treating chronic fatigue syndrome does not only replenish Qi but also regulates the function of organs and expels the pathogens of the body.


Possible syndromes causing these problems:

Qi Deficiency and Invasion by Wind Heat

An underlying Qi Deficiency permits Wind-Heat pathogens to invade and lodge more deeply in the body. This may take the form of chronic viral infection with chronic fatigue.
