Effects of Saiko-ka-ryukotsu-borei-to, a Japanese Kampo medicine, on tachycardia and central nervous system stimulation induced by theophylline in rats and mice. (1/801)

Effects of Saiko-ka-ryukotsu-borei-to (SRBT) on theophylline-induced tachycardia in anesthetized rats and theophylline-induced locomotion and convulsions in mice were examined. An intraduodenal administration of SRBT (1 g/kg) prevented theophylline (5 mg/kg, i.v.)-induced tachycardia in rats. SRBT also attenuated an increase in arterial blood pressure with a slow reduction in heart rate of rats treated with theophylline, with no influence on the plasma level of theophylline. However, SRBT did not change the beating rate of right atrium isolated from rats in the absence or presence of theophylline or isoproterenol. The locomotor activity of theophylline in mice was reduced by the treatment with SRBT. Furthermore, the latency of convulsions in mice induced by administration of theophylline at a higher dose (240 mg/kg, i.p.) was prolonged by treatment with SRBT (1 g/kg, p.o.) and seven out of fifteen mice were saved from death due to convulsions. These results suggest that theophylline-induced tachycardia and central nervous stimulation are suppressed by SRBT and that SRBT may reduce the undesirable actions of theophylline on the cardiovascular and central nervous systems.  (+info)

The effect of acupuncture in chronic intractable epilepsy. (2/801)

We examined the effect of acupuncture on epileptic seizures in humans in a controlled clinical setting. Treatment was administered by two Chinese professors of acupuncture. Effect was measured by change in seizure frequency. Twenty-nine patients with chronic intractable epilepsy completed the study. They were randomized in two groups; 15 were given classical acupuncture and 14 were given sham acupuncture. There was a reduction in seizure frequency in both groups, which did not reach a level of statistical significance. There was also an increase in the number of seizure-free weeks in both groups, which reached a level of significance in the sham group. Thus, we have not been able to prove a beneficial effect of acupuncture in chronic intractable epilepsy.  (+info)

The basic clinical diagnostic framework synergized. (3/801)

OBJECTIVE: To develop a diagnostic framework that would help defining clinical problems by the expanded understanding with traditional Chinese medicine (C Med) and western medicine (W Med). METHODS: The basic attributes of diagnosis and the use of diagnostic techniques of W Med and C Med are reviewed. Some of the various diagnostic labels and their meanings are also preliminarily reviewed. A consolidatory approach is made to synergize the usefulness of the two disciplines based on the principles of the two schools. RESULTS: A synergized basic diagnostic framework is developed. The disease (the disease diagnosis, [symbol: see text]), the state of the inner core (the core diagnosis, [symbol: see text]) should be defined. The term "systemic clues" is used to describe the symptom complex and conglomerate evidence describing the transient or sustained reaction of the inner core to environment. This is an analytical summary of its pathophysiological changes in reaction to the environmental insults. CONCLUSIONS: The application and use of the framework are discussed and propositions are made. The synergized diagnostic platform represents a starting effort to form a unified basis to exchange clinical diagnosis between W Med and C Med. Such framework may facilitate looking for new treatment modalities and results can be compared across different centres.  (+info)

An exploration of oral health beliefs and attitudes of Chinese in West Yorkshire: a qualitative investigation. (4/801)

This qualitative study explores oral health beliefs and attitudes among Chinese resident in West Yorkshire using six focus groups differentiated by age and gender. Focus group discussions took place in community settings led by trained Chinese facilitators. All groups believed that they were susceptible to dental disease, and that bleeding gums and total tooth loss were 'normal'; apart from the elderly, tooth loss was seen as undesirable. The elderly and adult groups believed in traditional remedies and claimed that preventive oral health measures were ineffective. These groups lacked faith in dentists, and for them cost, language difficulties and lack of awareness were the main reported barriers to accessing dental services. Traditional Chinese oral health beliefs remain influential for the elderly and adult UK Chinese. In contrast, teenagers thought that toothbrushing and sugar restriction would help to prevent dental diseases.

An over-the-counter Chinese medicine, Chan Su, is used as a cardiotonic agent. We demonstrated significant digoxin-like immunoreactivity in various organic and aqueous extracts of Chan Su. For example, when a 20-microL aliquot of an aqueous extract of Chan Su powder (1 mg/mL) was added to a 2-mL aliquot of a drug-free serum, the observed digoxin-like immunoreactivity was 2.76 ng/mL (3.53 nmol/L) digoxin equivalent using the fluorescence polarization immunoassay (FPIA). The magnitude of interference was much lower (0.94 ng/mL [1.20 nmol/L]) with the microparticle enzyme immunoassay (MEIA), and no interference was observed with the chemiluminescent assay (CLIA). We also observed a significant positive interference of the extract with the serum digoxin measurement using FPIA. In contrast, we observed a negative interference (falsely lowered digoxin concentration) of the extract in the serum digoxin measurement with the MEIA. The extract had no effect on the serum digoxin measurement with the CLIA. By taking advantage of the high protein binding of Chan Su and only 25% protein binding of digoxin, we further demonstrated that positive interference of Chan Su in the FPIA and negative interference of Chan Su in the MEIA of digoxin could be eliminated by monitoring the free digoxin concentration.  (+info)

Effect of ligustrum fruit extract on reproduction in experimental diabetic rats. (6/801)

AIM: To study the effect of ligustrum fruit on spermatogenesis and blood gonadal hormones in diabetic rats. METHODS: Experimental diabetes was induced in male Wistar rats with streptozotocin. Ligustrum fruit extract was given by gastric gavage at a dose of crude drug 30 g x kg(-1) x d(-1) for 110 days. The serum gonadadotropic hormones and testosterone were determined on d 60 and testicular histology examined on d 110. RESULTS: In the control diabetic rats, the seminiferous tubules were dilated and the spermatogenic cells irregularly arranged. Spermatogenesis was arrested with the number of spermatids highly reduced and spermatozoa not observed. In the treated rats, all types of spermatogenic cells were practically normal. The serum luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and testosterone levels were higher in the treated than in the control rats, but the difference was insignificant. CONCLUSION: In experimental diabetic rats, ligustrum fruit extract protects the damaging effect of experimental diabetes on spermatogenesis.  (+info)

Natural therapies for ocular disorders, part two: cataracts and glaucoma. (7/801)

Pathophysiological mechanisms of cataract formation include deficient glutathione levels contributing to a faulty antioxidant defense system within the lens of the eye. Nutrients to increase glutathione levels and activity include lipoic acid, vitamins E and C, and selenium. Cataract patients also tend to be deficient in vitamin A and the carotenes, lutein and zeaxanthin. The B vitamin riboflavin appears to play an essential role as a precursor to flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD), a co-factor for glutathione reductase activity. Other nutrients and botanicals, which may benefit cataract patients or help prevent cataracts, include pantethine, folic acid, melatonin, and bilberry. Diabetic cataracts are caused by an elevation of polyols within the lens of the eye catalyzed by the enzyme aldose reductase. Flavonoids, particularly quercetin and its derivatives, are potent inhibitors of aldose reductase. Glaucoma is characterized by increased intraocular pressure (IOP) in some but not all cases. Some patients with glaucoma have normal IOP but poor circulation, resulting in damage to the optic nerve. Faulty glycosaminoglycan (GAG) synthesis or breakdown in the trabecular meshwork associated with aqueous outflow has also been implicated. Similar to patients with cataracts, those with glaucoma typically have compromised antioxidant defense systems as well. Nutrients that can impact GAGs such as vitamin C and glucosamine sulfate may hold promise for glaucoma treatment. Vitamin C in high doses has been found to lower IOP via its osmotic effect. Other nutrients holding some potential benefit for glaucoma include lipoic acid, vitamin B12, magnesium, and melatonin. Botanicals may offer some therapeutic potential. Ginkgo biloba increases circulation to the optic nerve; forskolin (an extract from Coleus forskohlii) has been used successfully as a topical agent to lower IOP; and intramuscular injections of Salvia miltiorrhiza have shown benefit in improving visual acuity and peripheral vision in people with glaucoma.  (+info)

Determination of 14 chemical constituents in the traditional Chinese medicinal preparation Huangqin-Tang by high performance liquid chromatography. (8/801)

The high performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method for the identification and determination of baicalin (BG), wogonoside (WG), oroxylin-A-glucoside (OG), baicalein (B), wogonin (W), orxylin-A (O), paeoniflorin (PF), glycyrrhizic acid (GL), glycyrrhetinic acid (GA), liquiritin (LG), isoliquirition (ILG), liquiritigenin (L), isoliquiritigenin (IL) and ononin (ON) in Huangqin-Tang [Chinese characters: see text] was established. The samples were separated with a Wakosil C18 column (4.6 x 150 mm) by linear gradient elution using A (MeOH-HAC 100:1, v/v)-B (Water-HAC 100:1, v/v) (0 min, 30:70; 15 min, 40:60; 30 min, 60:40; 45 min, 80:20; 60 min, 100:0) as the mobile phase at a flow-rate of 1.0 ml/min. The detection was by diode-array UV/Vis detector (DAD), and the wavelength was set at the range of 200-400 nm. Satisfactory results were obtained within 60 min for the simultaneous determination of the 14 constituents. The repeatability (RSD) of the method was generally less than 2% (n=5, interday and intraday). The recovery of BG was 96.9+/-1.71, WG was 98.9+/-2.99, PF was 99.7+/-0.52, LG was 95.3+/-2.67, GL was 96.7+/-3.44, and GA was 94.8+/-4.16, respectively.  (+info)

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has many unique features. Thequality-of-life (QoL) instrument for lung cancer based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (QLASTCM-Lu) was the first self-reported instrument specifically developed to assess the quality of life from the perspective of TCM. Structured group methods and theory in developmental rating scale were employed to establish a general and a specific module, respectively. Quantitative and qualitative data from 240 lung cancer patients were collected to assess the psychometric properties. The three identified scales of the QLASTCM-Lu (correspondence between man and universe, unity of the body and spirit, and lung cancer specific module) and the total score demonstrated excellent psychometric properties. Test-retest reliability of all domains ranged from 0.93 to 0.96, and internal consistency |i|α|/i| ranged from 0.86 to 0.93. Correlation and factor analysis demonstrated good construct validity. Significant differences in the QLASTCM-Lu scales and

Contact: Nicole Napoli, [email protected], 202-375-6523. WASHINGTON (Jun 12, 2017) -. Traditional Chinese medicine might be effective as a complement or alternative to traditional Western medicine for primary and secondary prevention of heart disease, according to a state of the art review paper published today in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death worldwide, and despite advances in Western medicine for treating and preventing heart disease, unmet needs remain. As a result, traditional Chinese medicine is being increasingly looked at as a supplement to Western medicine, but to date randomized controlled trials are overall of poor quality and flawed. Western scientists often reject Chinese medicine for specific reasons: the formula consists of dozens of ingredients with many chemical molecules, making it hard to clarify the therapeutic mechanism; the medications available in China do not undergo the same rigorous approval process as Western ...

Background Since 1950, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) cupping therapy has been applied as a formal modality in hospitals throughout China and elsewhere in the world. Based on a previous systematic literature review of clinical studies on cupping therapy, this study presents a thorough review of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to evaluate the therapeutic effect of cupping therapy. Method Six databases were searched for articles published through 2010. RCTs on cupping therapy for various diseases were included. Studies on cupping therapy combined with other TCM treatments versus non-TCM therapies were excluded. Results 135 RCTs published from 1992 through 2010 were identified. The studies were generally of low methodological quality. Diseases for which cupping therapy was commonly applied were herpes zoster, facial paralysis (Bell palsy), cough and dyspnea, acne, lumbar disc herniation, and cervical spondylosis. Wet cupping was used in most trials, followed by retained cupping, moving cupping,

Years ago, her uncles son suffered skin disease when he was just one and a half years old. From the description she gave, it sounded like psoriasis- where there are huge swellings and outbreaks on the skin. The parents took their young child to all the specialists and tried various alternative healing methods…..but none worked.. Desperate, they turned to traditional Chinese medicine. The TCM physician specially made a soap using special herbal formula for the young boy to use to bathe. As well as bitter Chinese medicine were being prescribed. While taking the Chinese medicine, the child had to abstain from certain types of food.. Chinese medicine is usually slow acting and the treatment lasted for about 6 months. The symptoms subsided after 6 months and one can say that the child is cured. Today, years later, my friend said that the boy now have normal skin.. Another grown-up friend I know is not so lucky. This Chinese guy grew up from a poor family and he may have had those symptoms but the ...
The article also stresses the potential that traditional Chinese medicines could have in drug discovery efforts, in particular in finding multicomponent therapeutics that combine two or more active ingredients into one single dose to hit several targets at once. The herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine can easily have over 50 chemical components. Although each single component might not be active, in combination they might be able to potentiate the effects of other chemical components, or they might work in combination to produce unexpected results. Additionally, traditional Chinese medicines are often prescribed in combinations. Would it be possible to combine the well established formulae of traditional Chinese medicines with Western medicine to produce combinations of drugs with lower risks of adverse drug-drug interactions? Now that we know traditional Chinese medicine has somewhat of a scientific basis, hopefully more work will be completed in this area. Acupuncture has already gained ...
The practice of acupuncture and moxibustion is based on the theory of meridians. According to this theory, qi (vital energy) and blood circulate in the body through a system of channels called meridians, connecting internal organs with external organs or tissues. By stimulating certain points of the body surface reached by meridians through needling or moxibustion, the flow of qi and blood can be regulated and diseases are thus treated. These stimulation points are called acupuncture points, or acupoints.. Acupoints reside along more than a dozen of major meridians. There are 12 pairs of regular meridians that are systematically distributed over both sides of the body, and two major extra meridians running along the midlines of the abdomen and back. Along these meridians more than three hundred acupoints are identified, each having its own therapeutic action. For example, the point Hegu (LI 4), located between the first and second metacarpal bones, can reduce pain in the head and mouth. The ...

BEIJING - The revision of a long-controversial rule on traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is stranded amidst heated debates. While the government-led revision committee is analysing its stipulations for future implementation, some experts say the stagnancy is largely a result of the gap between the modern patent system and the protection efforts for traditional knowledge like TCM.. The Regulation on TCM Prescription Protection is an attempt to offset the insufficiency of modern IP system in preserving intellectual property of TCM, but neither the original rule nor the current revision draft has met this goal, says Zhang Tao, an associate professor of intellectual property at Beijing University of Chinese Medicine.. Nearly two years after the revision was launched, Chinas drug authorities - the State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) - released the first amendment draft in June 2006, but the texts immediately aroused wide refutations. Since then, no advance of the revision has been ...

Aim of the study: To investigate the neuroprotective effect of aqueous extract of modified Wu-Zi-Yan-Zong granule (MWG), a traditional Chinese herbal medicine, against CoCl2-induced neurotoxicity in PC12 cells. Materials and methods: Cell viability assay, apoptosis rate assay, ROS detection and mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP) assay were performed. In addition, cytochrome c, caspase-3, PARP and MAPKs were also detected by Western blotting. Results: MWG extract increased viability and suppresses early and middle/late stage apoptosis in a dose-dependent manner in CoCl2-induced PC12 cells. Moreover, MWG extract decreased the level of intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS), increased MMP, regulated Bcl-2 family protein expression (Bcl-2 and Bcl-XL) and inhibited the release of cytochrome c from the mitochondria. In addition, MWG extract attenuated activation of caspase-3 and poly ADP-ribose polymerase (PARP) and inhibited the phosphorylation of ERK, c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase (JNK) and p38 ...

Liuwei Dihuang (LWDH), a classic Chinese medicinal formula, has been used to improve or restore declined functions related to aging and geriatric diseases, such as impaired mobility, vision, hearing, cognition and memory. Here, we report on the effect and possible mechanisms of LWDH mediated protection of β-amyloid (Aβ) induced paralysis in Caenorhabditis elegans using ethanol extract (LWDH-EE) and water extract (LWDH-WE). Chemical profiling and quantitative analysis revealed the presence of different levels of bioactive components in these extracts. LWDH-WE was rich in polar components such as monosaccharide dimers and trimers, whereas LWDH-EE was enriched in terms of phenolic compounds such as gallic acid and paeonol. In vitro studies revealed higher DPPH radical scavenging activity for LWDH-EE as compared to that found for LWDH-WE. Neither LWDH-EE nor LWDH-WE were effective in inhibiting aggregation of Aβ in vitro. By contrast, LWDH-EE effectively delayed Aβ induced paralysis in the transgenic C.

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been used by Chinese patients and in many other countries worldwide. However, epidemiological reports and prescription patterns on children are few. A cohort of 178,617 children aged 18 and under from one million randomly sampled cases of the National Health Insurance Research Database was analyzed for TCM prescription patterns. SAS 9.1 was applied and descriptive medicine utilization patterns were presented. The cohort included 112,889 children treated by TCM, with adolescents (12- to 18-year-olds) as the largest group. In the childrens TCM outpatient visits, Chinese herbal remedies were the main treatment. The top three categories of diseases treated with Chinese herbal remedies were respiratory system; symptoms, signs, and ill-defined conditions; and digestive system. The top three categories using acupuncture were: injury and poisoning, diseases of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissue, and diseases of the respiratory system. Of the top ten herbal
Processing is a traditional pharmacy technology based on traditional Chinese medicine theory. The traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) ingredients should be processed before being used as a medicine. Processed bitter almonds are widely used in the clinic in TCM for the treatment of cough and asthma. In this work the amygdalin profile of three producing areas in China was determined, with respect to three differently processed bitter almond products: raw, stir-fried and scalded. Identification of the compounds was done by using high performance liquid chromatography coupled to electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (HPLC-ESI-MS/MS). Results indicated that amygdalin, neoamygdalin and amygdalin amide were identified in the different processed bitter almonds. Meanwhile, amygdalin was used as a standard to calculate the quantification of amygdalin and the concentration ratio of neoamygdalin and total amygdalin by HPLC-DAD. The data suggested that composition of amygdalin isomers in bitter almonds was

Highly active anti-retroviral therapy (HAART) is the current HIV/AIDS treatment modality. Despite the fact that HAART is very effective in suppressing HIV-1 replication and reducing the mortality of HIV/AIDS patients, it has become increasingly clear that HAART does not offer an ultimate cure to HIV/AIDS. The high cost of the HAART regimen has impeded its delivery to over 90% of the HIV/AIDS population in the world. This reality has urgently called for the need to develop inexpensive alternative anti-HIV/AIDS therapy. This need has further manifested by recent clinical trial failures in anti-HIV-1 vaccines and microbicides. In the current study, we characterized a panel of extracts of traditional Chinese medicinal herbal plants for their activities against HIV-1 replication. Crude and fractionated extracts were prepared from various parts of nine traditional Chinese medicinal herbal plants in Hainan Island, China. These extracts were first screened for their anti-HIV activity and cytotoxicity in human

Carcinogenesis is now considered as a result from a multitude of gene mutations [36], thus inhibition of a single gene product or cell signaling pathway is unlikely to prevent or treat cancer. The mechanisms vary considerably among various types of tumors. Alterations of different signaling pathways are involved in most of the pathological changes associated with these mechanisms. Many natural agents, in which TCM is included, have multi-targeting properties. We herein provide in vitro evidence that ZJW, a well-established TCM formula, has the potential for CRC intervention, which is accord to results obtained previously [6, 11]. It is a limitation not to perform cell vitality assay for ZJW in normal colorectal cells. However, the traditional Chinese herbal medicine ZJW has been used to treat gastrointestinal disorders for over 600 years in China. Nowadays, it is widely used in clinical medicine with proved security.. The present study showed that ZJW treatment, like that of 5-HTR1D antagonist, ...

Sinusitis is cause by inflammation of the mucous membranes in the sinuses, the air-filled spaces in the bones of the face. Sinus symptoms are a blocked-up nose, a nasal tone in the speech, and sometimes a headache over one or both eyes, usually worse in the mornings, when lying down or bending forwards. Normally mucus is channeled through the tiny air ducts to the nose, but during colds the ducts can become congested and when the mucus builds up, the sinuses become inflamed. Hay fever can also cause sinusitis, and allergy to dust or tobacco smoke can result in chronic cases. There can also be a greenish-yellow or bloody discharge from the nose.. Chinese Medicine sees the condition as mainly connected with a lung qi deficiency and with damp heat. A Chinese Medicine practitioner will prescribe peppermint, honeysuckle, fritillary bulb, tangerine peel and xanthium fruit are all helpful..

Tonsillitis can be an extremely painful complaint, causing a very sore throat as the tonsils, which are situated at the back of the throat, become inflamed and swollen. The neck glands are also affected in many cases, and there may be a dry cough. Children get tonsillitis more often than adults, because it is often caused by a virus that they have not had time to develop resistance to. Tonsillitis can also be the result of bacteria.. Chinese Medicine will diagnose tonsillitis as due to wind and heat or, sometimes, to fire poison. Heat, poison and fire can be treated internally by a Chinese Medicine practitioner, for example with honeysuckle flowers drunk as tea. A salt-water gargle can also be used to sterilize locally. The diet can be modified - tonsillitis sufferers should not eat too much spicy food, as that will aggravate the problem. Three-sided acupuncture needles to prick the top of the ears can also be effective.. If you wish to enquire about purchasing Chinese Herbal Medicines to help ...
Natural News) Knee osteoarthritis is a degenerative, wear and tear type of arthritis that commonly occurs in older adults. It develops gradually and causes pain that worsens over time. Fortunately, researchers at Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine in China and Marche Polytechnic University in Italy found a natural way to manage this disease. They discovered that receiving electroacupuncture for four weeks can help reduce pain and improve physical function of people with knee osteoarthritis without causing serious side effects.. Electroacupuncture is a form of therapy wherein thin needles are inserted into the body at certain areas or acupoints. Based on traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), stimulating different acupoints on the body could provide various health benefits. Unlike regular acupuncture, these thin needles are attached to a device that generates continuous electric pulses using small clips.. The researchers reached this conclusion after analyzing the data of randomized controlled ...

Abstract: The clinical efficacy and safety of acupuncture in the treatment of Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis (SAR) was evaluated by employing a two-phase crossover single-blind clinical trial. Thirty subjects were randomly assigned to two groups with 17 and 13 subjects respectively and treated with real or sham acupuncture (three times per week) for four consecutive weeks and then a crossover for treatments for a further four weeks without a washout period. The administration of real acupuncture treatment was guided by a syndrome differentiation according to Chinese Medicine Theory. Subjects were assessed by various criteria before, during and after the treatments. Outcome measures included subjective symptom scores using a five-point scale (FPS), relief medication scores (RMS) and adverse effect records. Twenty six (26) subjects completed the study. There was a significant improvement in FPS (nasal and non-nasal symptoms) between the two types of acupuncture treatments. No significant differences ...

Tui Na is an ancient form of therapeutic massage consisting of many different hand techniques applied to the body. Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and philosophy, Tui Na views the body in a similar way to acupuncture. Using the hands as tools, a practitioner diagnoses and treats the patients disharmonies through his/her tactile senses.. Each Tui Na technique has a specific function and theory behind its use. Tui Na helps free the flow of the bodys qi and blood. By moving the qi and blood, pain is reduced. Tui Nas techniques also have a vibrational rhythm to them which carries throughout the entire body. It is believed that the rocking motions of the techniques help to relax the muscles of the body and calm the mind. (The concept is somewhat akin to rocking a baby to sleep.). Tui Na treats many, many problems associated with health. It has a rich history of practical use and application. There are countless Chinese texts that exhibit the benefits of Tui Na.. Tui Na is usually ...
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first large-scale study to report differences in the characteristics of children with atopic dermatitis who did and did not use TCM. TCM was more commonly used for older and female children, especially those with allergic rhinitis and multiple allergic diseases compared to the children who never used TCM. Although the age at onset of atopic dermatitis is usually around 5 years, the higher use of TCM among older children may reflect poor control of atopic dermatitis, in that the parents of the children are more willing to try TCM when they are older. Dissatisfaction with current western medical treatment may be the reason for the use of TCM in the older children, and this trend is similar to that reported in the general population [14, 21].. The children with more allergic diseases tended to use TCM therapy, especially when they had both atopic dermatitis and allergic rhinitis. This may also explain why the children living in more urbanized areas tended ...

We explored the effects of combination of acupuncture and Chinese medicinal herbs in treating model rats with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and to explore whether acupuncture has positive effects on the absorption of salvianolic acid B in the extracts of a Chinese medicine formula when treating the model rats. 60 female Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were randomly divided into Groups A, B, C, D, E and F, with ten rats in each group. Except Group F, all of the other rats were induced to PCOS with oral administration of letrozole. The rats in Group F served as normal controls. Group A was treated with acupuncture. Group B was treated with oral administration of the extracts of the Chinese medicine formula. Group C was treated with a combination of oral administration of the extracts of Chinese medicine and acupuncture. Group D received western medicine as positive controls. After treatment, the serum levels of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone(LH) and testosterone (T) in each ...
Herbal medicine, one of the cornerstones of traditional Chinese medicine, has evolved over centuries of clinical practice and results in a vast body of knowledge encompassing more than 6,000 substances, most of whose effects and uses have been documented and researched.
Traces of therapeutic activities in China date from the Shang dynasty (14th-11th centuries BCE).[17] Though the Shang did not have a concept of medicine as distinct from other fields,[17] their oracular inscriptions on bones and tortoise shells refer to illnesses that affected the Shang royal family: eye disorders, toothaches, bloated abdomen, etc.,[17][18] which Shang elites usually attributed to curses sent by their ancestors.[17] There is no evidence that the Shang nobility used herbal remedies.[17] According to a 2006 overview, the Documentation of Chinese materia medica (CMM) dates back to around 1,100 BCE when only dozens of drugs were first described. By the end of the 16th century, the number of drugs documented had reached close to 1,900. And by the end of the last century, published records of CMM had reached 12,800 drugs.[19]. Stone and bone needles found in ancient tombs led Joseph Needham to speculate that acupuncture might have been carried out in the Shang dynasty.[20][21] ...
