Gui Pi Tang 歸脾湯 (Restore the Spleen Decoction) is a well-known herbal formula for strengthening Spleen qi, nourishing Heart blood and calming the shen. It is frequently used to treat shen 神 (spirit)-type disorders such as insomnia, anxiety, palpitations and depression, as well as fatigue, menstrual disorders and digestive issues. However, if the appropriate signs and symptoms are present, Gui Pi Tang can be effective for a wide variety of other conditions.
