In Chinese Medicine health conditions are thought to arise due to "disharmonies" in the body as a system. These disharmonies are called "patterns" and the very purpose of herbal formulas is to fight them in order to restore the body's harmony.

In this case Ba Zhen Tang is used by TCM practitioners to fight patterns like Qi and Blood deficiency, Lung Qi deficiency, or Spleen Qi deficiency. From a Western Medicine standpoint, such patterns can give rise to a range of conditions such as spontaneous flow of breast milk, anemia or hepatitis for instance. Often times, this is prescribed by TCM practitioners to treat Blood and Qi deficiency. This formula helps treat symptoms such as lower abdominal pain, pale complexion, lethargic and withdrawn state, and palpitations. Patients with Blood and Qi Deficiency typically exhibit fine (Xi) or weak (Ruo) pulses as well as a pale tongue with partial absence of coating.
