Women can have blood leakage, or continuous and incessant blood loss after premature birth, or blood loss during pregnancy, for if accompanied by abdominal pain during pregnancy, jiao ai tang governs.

This formula treats the Water and Wood elements. It nourishes the shao yin heart and kidney while nourishing and moving the shao yang and jue yin.

The formula gui zhi gan cao tang is the representative formula for treating shao yin heart yang deficiency. In jiao ai tang the dang gui is replacing the gui zhi because more nourishing is needed.

The trio of dang gui, bai shao and chuan xiong is used in many different blood nourishing formulas.
