Our body can live with an acceptable level of toxicity without much harm done. When the threshold of toxicity is exceeded, problems will arise, ranging from a minor skin rash to a serious one like cancer. However, it's difficult to know where the threshold is until something happens.
Toxic substances are absorbed into our body through the food we eat, the air we breathe, and the general environment we are exposed to everyday. Most toxins are not fatal because the amounts absorbed are usually small. Furthermore, our body is constantly cleansing them out to keep the accumulation in check.
The prescription given here is not strong enough to cure serious diseases like cancer all by itself. Moreover, no Chinese herbs are substance specific, that is, they are not known to be able to eliminate specific toxins or chemicals from the body. However, this prescription is good for regular use as a general cleansing treatment, or as a way to keep the toxicity level in the body well below threshold.
This prescription should achieve three things: cleanse the blood, assist the liver in its cleansing function, and assist the kidneys in expelling toxins via urination. The following herbs are used: 1) Cleanse blood Sheng Di Huang 生地黃 Bai Hua She Cao 白花蛇草 Xian He Cao 仙鶴草 Chuan Xin Lian 穿心蓮 2) Assist liver in cleansing Huang Qin 黃芩 Jin Ying Hua 金銀花 Chai Hu 柴胡 Bai Shao 白勺 3) Assist kidneys in cleansing Chuan Lian Zi 穿楝子 Jin Qian Cao 金錢草 Ze Xie 澤瀉 Xu Duan 續斷 A total of 12 herbs are recommended.
