Explanatory Notes
Salvia/Amber Tablets were designed on the basis of the Chinese concept that a frightful experience can lead to disturbance of the soul and result in long-term psychological difficulties, commonly manifest as anxiety, panic disorder, nervousness, insomnia, nightmares, and difficulty concentrating. In this formula, salvia is selected as a sedative herb; in China, large doses of salvia are given for neurotic insomnia and numerous mental disorders. Ginseng is also used here for its sedative action; it was known traditionally for calming the disturbed souls (shen, hun, po) and has only recently garnered the undeserved reputation of being a stimulant. Succinum (also known as amber) along with dragon tooth are commonly prescribed for disorders caused by fright. Succinum is the fossilised resin of pine trees, while dragon tooth is the fossilised teeth of ancient mammals, such as mastodon. Zizyphus nourishes the liver to allow the disturbed soul to rest, and is one of the primary herbs of Chinese medicine used to aid sleep. Bamboo sap clears the orifices to assure that the mind is clear and sharply focused. The formula was inspired by the traditional “pill to calm the soul and steady the will” (Anshen Dingzhi Wan), which has chief ingredients of ginseng and dragon teeth, and by modern reports of treatments for anxiety and insomnia. Other sedative formulations include: Acorus Tablets, Albizzia 9, Cyperus 18, Fu shen 16, Zizyphus 18; Bu Nao Wan and Tian Wang Bu Xin Dan (Pine Mountain); Nardova and Melakava - both Prescription Only (White Tiger); and Bramyl (Herbs from India).
