Si Ni Bei 四逆輩

is a powdered herbal  preparation composed of several organic herbs, such as An Gui, Lan Gui, Gan Jiang etc unification herbs. It replaces and supersedes Fu Zi (aconite) as a unification component in herbal formulas.

In the Hunyuan Research Institute, Dr Yaron Seidman with the help of dozens Hunyuan practitioners worldwide, have researched and designed a safer and more potent substitute for Fu Zi (aconite). It is the Si Ni Bei preparation.
Zhang Zhongjing in his Shang Han Lun 《伤寒沦》 states:  自利不渴者,属太阴,以其脏有寒故也。当温之,宜四逆辈。When diarrhea happens on its own and there is no thirst, this belongs to Tai Yin. It is because the organ (storage) has cold in it. One should warm it up, it is appropriate to use Si Ni Bei.
For 2 millennium most, if not all, practitioners believed that Si Ni Bei is simply a collective term for different Si Ni Tang formulas; Si Ni Tang, Dang Gui Si Ni tang, Tong Mai Si Ni tang etc. Yet this is a mistake.
Tai Yin or grand Yin represents all Yin, not just a segment thereof. Yin function is to bring energy from nature (plants, food, air, spirit) into the body and merge it in unification. Unification (with nature) helps the body recharge and therefore have energy again the next day. When Yin can't bring nature's energy into unification it is called  自利; diarrhea happens on its own, and there is no thirst as body can't absorb spirit (Yang) from water. This kind of inability to absorb nature into unification belongs to all Yin (here named Tai Yin). An organ 脏 is a physical instrument allowing storage of nature's energy into unification (namely energy and physical material merge into one, hence energy the next day again becomes available). "Its organ has cold" means its storage has cold. Storage having cold indicates a body with no heaven spirit (Yang) in it. It is Kun earth trigram instead of Kan water trigram (Kun three Yin broken lines, Kan one solid Yang line concealed between 2 Yin broken lines). "One should warm it up" explains using a method to insert or help insert 1 solid Yang line from nature (heaven) into Kun earth to create Kan water. This re-establishes the Yin function. Si Ni 四逆 illustrates  energy on all four sides of the circle not able to establish a connection with nature. Bei 辈 character as was used in the latter Han dynasty during Zhongjing time, means chariots dispatching in all directions. Chariots can dispatch in all directions (to remedy all Si Ni) only when the root is re-established. The root being Yang's concealing ability into earth. Kun turns into Kan, or in other words the dead vessel is able to take energy from nature to recharge and live another day.
Our preparation of Si Ni Bei delivers this kind of effect (as seen in the chart above).
Fu Zi (aconite), in the modern world, poses many problems, starting from inadequate production quality that causes toxicity, legal regulations prohibiting its use in the USA, Europe and Australia, and most importantly, at times, preventing practitioners from researching True Principle, simply because Fu Zi is a legal issue for them. We have designed this excellent, potent and legal substitute to allow practitioners worldwide the practice of Hunyuan medicine.
Si Ni Bei in herbal formulas should be used in dosages of 20-30 grams and higher, but it can also be enjoyed as  regular tea (food grade) in 2 gram dosages, simply stirred in a cup of hot water, enjoy!
