Clear Vessel | Blue Poppy
Harmonizes the liver and spleen, clears heats and eliminates dampness, quickens the blood and abducts stagnation
This formula treats a liver spleen disharmony complicated by enduring dampness and heat, incipient yin vacuity, and blood stasis. This is a common pattern associated with relatively asymptomatic hyperlipidemia, also known as high cholesterol, in a relatively mesomorphic individual (i.e., a patient who is neither extremely skinny nor grossly obese).
High cholesterol is a laboratory test result. As such, it is not a disease in and of itself but a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Many people with high cholesterol have no signs or symptoms of that condition per se. Therefore, there is no oneforone relationship between high cholesterol and a single, particular Chinese medical pattern. However, over the last 50 years, Chinese doctors have identified the five or six most commonly presenting patterns in patients with high cholesterol. These are 1) phlegm, dampness, and turbidity, 2) qi stagnation and blood stasis, 3) spleenstomach vacuity weakness, 4) liverspleen disharmony, 5) liverkidney yin vacuity, and 6) heartkidney yang vacuity. In actuality, most patients with high cholesterol have a combination of two or more of the foregoing disease mechanisms. In late middleaged and young elderly patients with a mesomorphic to slightly overweight body, the most common pattern associated with high cholesterol is a liverspleen disharmony complicated by dampness and heat. The dampness is both due to and aggravates the spleen vacuity, while the heat is due to overeating fatty, oily foods and hot, spicy foods and drinking alcohol coupled with a tendency to yang exuberance and liver depression. Due to advancing age and enduring heat, yin has been consumed. Therefore, there is also incipient yin vacuity, and, because of longstanding qi stagnation, phlegm, and dampness, there is also an element of blood stasis. This is exactly the pattern that Clear Vessel is designed to treat.
Within this formula, Chai Hu (Radix Bupleuri), Yu Jin (Tuber Curcumae), and Yin Chen Hao (Herba Artemisiae Scopariae) course the liver and resolve depression, while Fu Ling (Poria), Yi Yi Ren (Semen Coicis Lachrymajobi), and Ze Xie (Rhizoma Alismatis) fortify the spleen and seep dampness. Jue Ming Zi (Semen Cassiae Torae), Yin Chen Hao (Herba Artemisiae Scopariae), Jiao Gu Lan (Herba Gynostemmae Pentaphylli), and He Ye (Folium Nelumbinis Nuciferae) clear heat and eliminate dampness, especially from the liver. He Shou Wu (Radix Polygoni Multiflori) and Sang Ji Sheng (Herba Taxilli) nourish the blood and enrich yin. Yu Jin, Shan Zha (Fructus Crataegi), San Qi (Radix Notoginseng), and Dan Shen (Radix Salviae Miltiorrhizae) quicken the blood and transform stasis. All four of these medicinals are commonly used for the treatment of coronary artery disease. Modern research has confirmed that Jue Ming Zi, Shan Zha, Jiao Gu Lan, He Shou Wu (Radix Polygoni Multiflori), and He Ye all possess significant blood lipid lowering ability. However, not only do these medicinals in this formula lower total cholesterol and triglycerides, they also increase the healthy or good high density lipids (HDL), something that Western medicines statins, such as Lipitor®, do not do. It has also been suggested that Jiao Gu Lan is able to lower Creactive protein, a marker for inflammation associated with heart attacks. Further, a number of the medicinals in this formula are also known to lower blood pressure, such as Jue Ming Zi, Shan Zha, Jiao Gu Lan, San Qi, and Sang Ji Sheng.
