How Does This Formula Work?
Calm and Compose contains the following herbs:
gou teng shuang (Gambir leaf & twig)
shi jue ming (Abalone shell)
huang qin (Scutellaria Baicalensis)
sang ji sheng (Taxilli Herba)
tian ma (Gastrodia Rhizome)
zhi zi (Gardeniae Fructus Praep.)
ban xia (Pinella Ternata)
chuan niu xi (Cyathula root)
du zhong (Eucommia bark)
dan nan xing (Rhizoma Arisaematis)
Gastrodia and unicaria are the main herbs in the formula, serving to subdue Liver Yang and extinguish Internal Wind. Gastrodia has a potent effect on quelling seizures in small animals yet does not produce any sedative effect.
Skullcap also may have some limited anticonvulsant activity since it has been shown, like Gastrodia, to alter cerebral GABA levels. Abalone shell assists in the sinking of Yang back into the Lower Burners with its heavy mineral content.
Gardenia and skullcap clear Heat from the Upper Burner and the Heart. Siberian motherwort and cyathula open the Upper Burner to allow Yang energy and stagnant Blood to descend.
Cyathula also protects the Liver and Kidney Yin while siberian motherwort restores communciation between the Heart and the Kidney, facilitating the descent of Heart Yang.
Polygonum multiflorum and poria calm the Spirit, while loranthus and eucommia both consolidate the descending Yang back into the Kidney and simultaneously conserve its Yin.

Here is what Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine Says;
The first pattern associated with seizures in dogs is called Liver Yang Rising, and it arises from liver constraint caused by too much heat or too much dryness. If the liver blood stores of blood are severely weakened, they affect the fluids and yin of the rest of the body. Without enough fluid to cool the dog's s body, a relative internal heat or false fire can occur. This fires rises upward in a quick rush, and dog seizures are often the result.( Four Paws Five Directions; Cheryl Schwartz, DVM)
The second pattern of seizures, according to Chinese medicine, states that the root cause of a dog seizure is due to the existence of Wind and Phlegm. Chinese medicine goes on to say that "without Phlegm there is no epilepsy".
What does this mean to you?
"The link between diet and a dog that experiences seizures remains a strong clinical impression on the part of alternative veterinary medical practitioners" (Manuel of Natural Veterinary Medicine).
The holistic thinking is that in the many cases of epilepsy, there is a suggestion that there may actually be be a type of a food sensitivity reaction, TCM calls this "diet taxation". Our suggestion: A diet of grain and dairy free food. Chinese medicine considers these foods phlegm makers and phlegm is bad!
