BACKGROUND

Benign prostatic hyperplasia is the enlargement of the prostate gland causing varying degrees of bladder outlet obstruction. The exact etiology is unknown, but it is presumed to be linked to hormonal changes associated with aging. Clinically, patients often present with symptoms such as progressive urinary frequency, urgency and nocturia. Furthermore, many will experience a feeling of incomplete emptying, terminal dribbling, and pain with urination. Decreased size and force of the urinary stream is also commonly reported. Therefore, proper therapy requires treatment of both the cause and the symptoms.

FORMULA EXPLANATION

In traditional Chinese medicine, benign prostatic hyperplasia in geriatric men is a condition due to both excess and deficiency. Excess refers to the enlargement of the gland leading to stagnation of qi and blood and accumulation of damp-heat. Deficiency refers to the gradual depletion of qi, blood, and Kidney jing (essence) accompanying aging. Therefore, optimal treatment must use herbs that tonify the underlying deficiency, clear damp-heat, and promote normal urination.

In this formula, many herbs are used to break up and resolve the enlargement and disperse stagnation. Ru Xiang (Gummi Olibanum) and Mo Yao (Myrrha) have excellent functions to activate blood circulation and disperse blood stagnation. This pair is commonly used to disperse masses throughout the entire body – not just the prostate. Chi Shao (Radix Paeoniae Rubrae) and Tao Ren (Semen Persicae) are used to enhance the effect of softening the hardness and promoting normal urination. Hu Po (Succinum) is used to break up blood stagnation and open the orifices. Furthermore, Tong Cao (Medulla Tetrapanacis) and Wang Bu Liu Xing (Semen Vaccariae) are added to disperse and reduce swelling and inflammation. They also have excellent penetrating qualities to help restore healthy, continuous urinary flow. This combination exerts an excellent effect to resolve enlargement and disperse stagnation. In addition, Huang Qi (Radix Astragali) and Fu Ling (Poria) are markedly effective at tonifying qi and regulating water circulation. Fu Ling (Poria), Hua Shi (Talcum), Tong Cao (Medulla Tetrapanacis) and Yi Yi Ren (Semen Coicis) are diuretic herbs used to promote normal urination and relieve various discomforts associated with dampness and swelling. Bitter and cold, Huang Bo (Cortex Phellodendri Chinensis) and Pu Gong Ying (Herba Taraxaci) clear damp-heat and toxic heat from the lower jiao.
