In the age of the gut-brain axis, there’s no denying that the health of our digestive system is essential for overall well-being. With the modern diet and environmental pollutants affecting the microbial balance of the gut, it’s more important than ever to take care of our digestive health. One of the major issues with our modern diet is the excessive amount of sugar that we consume – over 71 grams per day on average. This high sugar intake contributes to fungal overgrowth, hormone disruption, and significant cognitive impairments.
To regulate digestive function, ancient Chinese medicine has been using a combination of diet, acupuncture, herbs, and qi gong for thousands of years. According to classical Chinese medical theory, the Spleen and Stomach are primarily responsible for digestive function, with the Liver playing a secondary role. The spleen and stomach transform and transport food into usable energy and then circulate and absorb it to the other organs through meridians. Imbalance in the digestive system can result from internal and external pathogenic factors, with stress playing a significant role. Worry and stress tax digestive function, causing disharmony in the digestive organs and resulting in symptoms like loose stools, food cravings, and adverse microbial balance in the gut.
To address digestive issues, we introduce Middle Management, a herbal formula based on the classical Chinese formula Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang. This formula, first seen in the Pi Wei Lun (Treatise on Spleen and Stomach) in 1249, supports the spleen and digestion, removes food stagnation, and dissolves phlegm. The herbs included in the formula – Huang Qi, Sheng Ma, Chai Hu, Dang Shen, Bai Zhu, Chen Pi, Hou Po, Huo Xiang, and Lian Qiao – are carefully selected to support digestive function, clear thinking, and remove heat from the intestines.
Middle Management is a natural solution to support optimal digestion, avoid post-meal bloat and fatigue, and help you stay sharp and focused throughout the day. With the increasing understanding of the impact of digestive health on the immune system, Middle Management is an excellent tool to support optimal health and well-being.
