What does it do?
Effortless elimination is in problem when the veins or tissues in the lower portion of the rectum or anus become swollen, usually due to pressure. In such cases, one may experience anal itching, a trace of bright red blood on the toilet tissue or in the stool, a painful sensation during bowel movements or hard and tender lumps near the anus.
From the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) this may be caused by several reasons. Intestinal Wind is evidenced by the presence of a trace of bright blood; Dryness of the Intestine is associated with chronic hard stool; Damp Heat may be present if there is pronounced swelling, ache and additional systemic Heat/Damp signs such as a red tongue with a greasy coat and a rapid, slippery pulse; Spleen deficiency is evident when the weak Spleen fails to hold Blood in the vessels and allows Qi (energy) to sink resulting in protruding anus; Blood stasis exist when a sensation of pain is obvious. Hua Zhi Pian is a well-balanced formula that can be used to address a wide range of causes.
Hua Zhi Pian is composed of nine medicinal herbs which clear Heat, release Wind, hold the blood in vessels, support the Spleen, lubricate the intestines to support the normal rectal tract function.
Sheng Ma (Cimicifuga) releases Wind-Heat and eliminates toxins. It has an ascending nature. Di Yu (Sanguisorba) is a homeostatic herb which also cools the blood and clears toxic Heat. Used in combination with Huang Qin (Scutellaria) and Huai Hua (Sophora flower), they have a particularly effective ability to hold the vessels intact. Sheng Di Huang (Rehmannia root) is a powerful Yin tonic which also cools the blood and support normal elimination by clearing heat which enters the large intestine and dries the fluids.
Zi Cao (Lithospermum root) has several functions in this formula. It clears Heat and cools the blood, eliminates Heat toxins and moistens and unblocks the bowels. Zi Cao has a stimulating effect upon the smooth muscle of the intestines. Ku Shen (Sophora root) clears Heat and dries Dampness particularly in the Lower Jiao. Ku Shen also dispels Wind and relieves itching. Feng Wei Cao (Chinese brake) treats Damp-Heat accumulation in the Large Intestine. Feng Wei Cao also cools the blood and eliminates toxins.
Chen Pi (Tangerine peel) is a harmonizing herb used in this formula to regulate the middle-jiao (Spleen and Stomach) and dry dampness.
