Dang Gui nourishes and quickens the blood. It is the ruling medicinal in this
formula. Zi Cao, Da Huang, and Lu Hui Zhi clear heat and cool the blood. Zi Cao
also resolves the toxins typically associated with psoriasis and is a famous,
topically applied Chinese dermatological medicinal. Lu Hui Zhi has been shown to
be particularly effective for combating dermatological inflammation and for
penetrating the barrier of the skin. Randomized, double-blind trials involving
the topical application of Aloe Vera (Succus Herbae Aloes, Lu Hui Zhi) to
psoriasis lesions have shown a cure rate of 83% after 12 months compared to a 7%
cure rate for the placebo and no relapses.(Footnote1) Bing Pian is a common
ingredient in Chinese dermatological treatments in general and in psoriasis
treatments in particular. When applied topically, it clears heat and scatters
nodulation, stops itching and engenders new flesh. Castor oil (Oleum Semenis
Ricini Communis, Bi Ma You) disperses swelling and resolves toxins, moistens
dryness and quickens the blood when applied externally. It is used for the
external treatment of psoriasis in both Chinese dermatology and Western
naturopathy. Vitamins A, D, and E are all also commonly used for the treatment
of this recalcitrant skin condition.
Do not use in cases of wet, suppurating, progressive psoriasis.
Psoriasis is a non-contagious, chronic skin disease of unknown etiology.
Although it Western medical cause is not known, most researchers agree it is an
immune-mediated disorder that has a strong genetic component. It is estimated
that 4% of the U.S. population or more than seven million Americans suffer from
psoriasis. The incidence of psoriasis rises to 28% if one parent has this
condition and to 68% if both parents suffer from psoriasis. Although the
condition may occur at any age, most patients do not show signs till their 20s,
with an average age at diagnosis of 28. Somewhere between 150,000-260,000 new
cases of psoriasis are diagnosed per year in the U.S.
