Supports periphery blood flow and breast health.  Traditionally used to warm cold limbs and support healthy breast tissue.

This formula, Dang Gui Si Ni Tang, is described in its source text as a gentle and powerful way to warm the body, encourage increased blood volume and blood circulation. This is accomplished by strengthening the functional movement of yang in the body, returning its capability to clear out stagnation and accumulations of yin.
Yang (movement and heat) is generated in the center of the body and should move out from there, so the periphery of the body will become affected first when yang is weak. This not only includes the arms and legs, but also the breasts and genitals. For this reason, this formula is traditionally used to support breast and reproductive health.
In this pattern yang qi is blocked or weak to a degree that yin and yang are not interacting properly. When the blood is weak yang is unable to strongly move through the bloodstream and yin starts to accumulate. It is important for yin and yang to be in balance for the body maintain health. Over time this lack of warmth in the periphery of the body means the blood vessels are constricted and there is less blood flow, leaving the hands and feet cold.
Chinese medicine teaches that cold blood can lead to yin masses within the body that could be described as cysts, fibroids, and tumors. It is also possible to see this pattern causing yin accumulation that might look like swelling or discoloration from blood stasis (purple finger nails, spider vein clusters etc.), and pain.
The base formula works by gently warming the congealed cold and allowing yang to unblock the channels and affected areas. This can return a sense of warmth, vitality and strength to the body.
