Formula

Akebia (mu tong) promotes urination and drains heat; it has a diuretic effect in laboratory experiments. It is traditionally used with plantago seed (che qian zi) for edema and painful urination. Pyrrosia (shi wei) clears damp heat and stops bleeding. Dianthus (qu mai), unblocks painful urination, and is traditionally used for bloody urination. Lygodium spore (hai jin sha) is traditionally used for stones in the urine. Gardenia (zhi zi) is one of the premier heat clearing herbs in the Materia Medica; it also treats irritability, restlessness, and insomnia. Soft rush pith (deng xin cao) promotes urination and removes dampness. Magnesium salts (hua shi) promotes urination and drains heat from the bladder, and is traditionally used for burning, painful, dark, or scanty urination. Licorice root (gan cao) is included for its harmonizing and detoxification actions. Vladimiria souliei (mu xiang) was added by ancient herbalist Zhu Dan Xi, to strengthen the transforming function of the bladder meridian. Wine steamed rhubarb (zhi da huang), removes heat through the stool; wine steaming improves its blood circulating properties.
