Relaxed Wanderer

Relaxed Wanderer
Xiao Yao San "Free and Easy Rambler"


This is a much revered herbal formula that has been used, with a few variations, for hundreds of years to relieve problems related to Liver Qi Obstruction and Blood Stagnation/Deficiency. It helps the Liver and Spleen work together for better food digestion, nutrient absorption, blood production, and qi circulation.

I have found in my clinical practice that Relaxed Wanderer can be exceptionally helpful for women’s disorders of premenstrual syndrome, blood deficiency, and stagnation of qi flow through the reproduc- tive system. This formula can also be beneficial to men and women who suffer from tension headaches, muscle pain, upper abdominal pain, bowel disorders, frustration, irritability and inappropriate anger.
Relaxed Wanderer contains thirteen herbs carefully combined to produce maximum intended results with minimum side effects. These are the chief herbs in the formula:

Dang Gui root (Angelicae Sinensis). This famous herb can take the edge off the anxiety, irritability and pain that comes from Liver Qi Stagnation. It is commonly used for cramps associated with Blood Stag- nation, and it will nourish the blood in cases of deficiency.

White Peony root (Paeoniae Lactiflorae). This has similar effects as Dang Gui with a bit more emphasis on soothing abdominal pain, calming volatility, and treating tension headaches. It is a gentle remedy for many menstrual disorders like irregularity, clots and pain.


White Atractylodes rhizome (Atractylodis Macrocephalae). A modern variation to Xiao Yan San, this herb is used to treat Spleen and Stomach deficiency. Symptoms may include diarrhea, vomiting, epigas- tric pain, and listlessness. It also relieves excessive dampness that can cause many digestive disorders of bloating, irregular bowels, or loose stools.

Bupleurum root (Radix Bupleuri). Excellent herb for several types of heat in the body especially from constraint of qi or blood in the Liver. Symptoms could include fever, vomiting, dizziness, vertigo, stifling sensation in chest, flank pain, breast distension, belching, headaches, irritability, and prolonged frustration.

Many people will benefit from taking Relaxed Wanderer (from K’an Herbals) during the spring of the year. At this time the weather is driven by the Rising Yang Qi that often creates tempestuous and fickle storms which affect the flow of energy everywhere in nature, including
our bodies. This well balanced formula can be taken as a tonic to temper the Yang Qi, relax the liver, and aid our smooth transition from winter to summer.


The usual dosage is three tablets a day for 10 to 30 days for most people. You should always consult with a knowledgeable health care practitioner before taking this product especially if you are also taking prescription medication.
