Formula Rationale

This formula is based on the clinical experience of Misha Cohen, OMD, L.Ac., in treating persons with AIDS and cancer and who are receiving chemotherapeutic agents that suppress bone marrow function. This formula is used in the Quan Yin Herbal Program for HIV-positive persons as an adjunct to Enhance. It will be researched at UCSF supported by a grant from the NIH Office of Alternative Medicine and Health Concerns.

The chief herb spatholobus (ji xue teng), both vitalizes and tonifies blood. In China this herb is commonly used during cancer therapy to stimulate bone marrow function when it is suppressed by radiation or chemotherapy. Ho-shou-wu nourishes the blood and replenishes liver and kidney essence. Salvia (dan shen) moves blood and eliminates blood stasis in addition to promoting the repair and regeneration of tissues. Codonopsis (dang shen) and astragalus (huang qi) replenish qi and strengthen spleen and stomach function, which is necessary to the production of blood. Both herbs are known to increase white blood cell count. Codonopsis in particular is used in China to treat patients with low WBCs due to radiation or chemotherapy, and is also administered to increase RBCs. The rehmannias (shu and sheng di huang) nourish essence and strengthen the kidney, so that blood is regenerated. Tang kuei is a strong blood tonic, and helps increase the body’s folic acid and vitamin B-12 levels, so that anemia is alleviated in many cases. Lycium (gou ji zi) nourishes the blood. Lotus seed (lian zi), citrus (chen pi), red date (da zao), and oryza (gu ya) strengthen the spleen and aid in the digestion of the formula’s herbs. Gelatinum (e jiao) strengthens the blood and essence and has been shown to increase RBCs and hemoglobin.

Clinical Notes

1. In order to boost bone marrow function, it is necessary to both vitalize and tonify blood, a specific action required for this type of anemia. Spleen qi and kidney yang should also be tonified. Combine with Backbone with cold signs. Use Astra Essence without cold signs.

2. This formula may also be used for neuropathy, since salvia (dan shen) and other herbs in the formula are known to promote microcirculation.


Additional Formulas

• For numbness and pain and cold signs, combine Marrow Plus with Mobility 3 (3 of each TID)
• Consider Marrow Plus as an adjunct to Mobility 2, Mobility 3, and Channel Flow for chronic pain
• For low platelet counts consider Astra 8 or Enhance
