Dang Gui (Radix Angelicae Sinensis) nourishes and quickens the blood. It is the ruling medicinal in this formula. Zi Cao (Radix Arnebiae/Lithospermi), Da Huang (Radix Et Rhizoma Rhei), and Lu Hui Zhi (Succus Herbae Aloes) 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 Lu Hui Zhi (Aloe Vera, Succus Herbae Aloes) 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.1 Bing Pian (Borneolum)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. Bi Ma You (Castor Oil, Oleum Semenis Ricini Communis) 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.
