Flow was developed by Misha Cohen, OMD, LAc, and Andrew Gaeddert, out of their
clinical experience with fibromyalgia, abdominal pain, and gynecological
disorders. This formula was designed for quick results.
Corydalis (yan hu suo) was chosen as the chief herb for the formula, as
it is very widely used in China for pain relief. It is 25% of the formula in a
7:1 extract. Corydalis invigorates the blood and alleviates pain. Corydalis also
regulates Qi and is used for pain in the chest, abdomen, and epigastric area. It
is also used for menstrual pain, as well as hernia-like (bearing down) pain.
Corydalis has a mild sedative effect.
Angelica dahurica (bai zhi) relieves pain, especially in the upper body,
neck and shoulders. Tang kuei (dang gui) has a special effect in
relieving abdominal and uterine pain. Traditionally it is used for dysmenorrhea
and arthritic pain. It increases local circulation of blood and has a warming
effect. Its functions are to nourish, tonify and invigorate the blood. Tang kuei,
with salvia (dan shen) and Myrrh (mo yao), alleviates pain due to
blood stagnation in the extremities. White peony (bai shao) alleviates
pain, spasms, and cramping.
Cinnamon twig (gui zhi) was chosen for the specific effect of bringing
the herbs to the surface of the body and to promote circulation of blood. The
traditional functions include warming the channels. It has shown analgesic
effects according to western research. Salvia (dan shen) was chosen for
its specific effect of relieving menstrual pain. Its traditional functions
include invigorating blood and removing blood stasis and heat. According to
Western research, salvia increases microcirculation of blood flow and has a
sedative effect. Myrrh and frankincense are included for their functions in
relieving pain. Frankincense (ru xiang) invigorates the blood and
promotes movement of Qi. It alleviates pain and reduces swelling.
Myrrh (mo yao) invigorates the blood, dispels blood stasis, reduces
swelling and alleviates pain. Both frankincense and myrrh promote healing.
Licorice (gan cao) alleviates pain and spasms and has anti-inflammatory
and detoxicant effects.
