Huangqin Decoction for Treating Dysmenorrhea
Recently received feedback from several patients with dysmenorrhea that Huangqin Decoction is effective.
Ms. W, 37 years old, has a plump body, her hair is black and shiny, and her face is moist and red. Dysmenorrhea for 4 years. Every time there is severe pain, rolling on the bed, or even fainting, I often use analgesic suppositories, up to 12 tablets per menstrual period. Diagnosed as adenomyosis. Visited in late November last year. Inquired about the heavy menstrual flow, irritability and fear of heat, difficulty in falling asleep, night sweats at night and changing clothes several times overnight, hemorrhoids often occur, and the result is thermal dysmenorrhea. Prescription: 20 grams of Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi, 20 grams of Radix Paeoniae Alba, 5 grams of raw licorice, 20 grams of red dates, decocted in water, 5 doses per week. This prescription was taken intermittently until March this year, the pain was significantly relieved, and no pain suppository was needed.
Ms. T, 46 years old, is of medium build. Although there are a few spots on her cheeks, she has bright eyes and red lips. I came to the clinic in November last year and complained of severe abdominal pain and cramps in the lower limbs. Check estradiol 674 pmol/L (follicular phase), check uterine fibroids 36*24 mm. Use Huangqin Decoction: 15 grams of Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi, 20 grams of raw white peony root, 5 grams of raw licorice, 20 grams of red dates, 20 doses, 5 doses a week, and a follow-up visit at the beginning of March this year. The dysmenorrhea disappeared. L (follicle stage), uterine fibroids 30*25 mm.
Dysmenorrhea is a common disease in gynecology. Traditional Chinese medicine thinks of many causes, including cold coagulation, stagnation of qi, damp-heat, blood deficiency, blood stasis, etc. There are many prescriptions. Huangqin Decoction is only suitable for thermal dysmenorrhea. Most of the patients suffer severe pain, often screaming, or rely on analgesics. There are blood clots in the menstrual flow, and the menstrual blood is thick and dark red. Examination often sees enlarged uterus, or pelvic inflammatory disease, adenomyosis, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, etc. Most of the people have red lips, red tongue, irritability, insomnia, hot hands, feet, heart, and slippery pulse; or have hemorrhoids and anal fissure, blood in the stool, or have body heat and night sweats, or morning stiffness, joint swelling and pain, or dry, vomiting, diarrhea, or headache and breast swelling ; Its stool or diarrhea is foul, or dry and hard to resolve, most of the anal mouth is burning.
Huangqin Decoction is a prescription of "Treatise on Febrile Diseases". The original text is "The sun and Shaoyang are comorbid, and those who benefit from it, and Huangqin Decoction". Later generations used Huangqin Decoction to treat heat benefits, such as dysentery enteritis. Why can cure dysmenorrhea? This is related to the indications of Huangqin Decoction. Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi decoction consists of three ounces of scutellaria baicalensis Georgi, peony two liang, licorice two liang, and twelve jujubes. The whole recipe can be regarded as a combination of scutellaria baicalensis and peony licorice decoction. Shaoyao Gancao Decoction treats "anxious foot spasm", and dysmenorrhea itself is a state of urgent uterine smooth muscle contracture. Clinically, patients with dysmenorrhea applying Huangqin Decoction are often accompanied by abdominal muscle constriction, or alternating abdominal pain, constipation and diarrhea, or low back pain and leg pain, or headache, or breast pain, especially the lower limbs are prone to cramps. Scutellaria baicalensis specializes in treating vomiting fever. Huangtu Decoction treats "blood down" and "blood after stool", and Xiexin Decoction treats "hematemesis and blood". Both sides have scutellaria, which is scutellaria to clear blood heat. Scutellaria baicalensis decoction treats "self-improvement", and Pueraria lobata Scutellaria baicalensis decoction cures "more benefits, but the pulse is short." Scutellaria baicalensis clears intestinal heat. Sanwu Huangqin Decoction in addition to "extremities painful heat", Banxia Xiexin Decoction, ginger Xiexin Decoction, licorice Xiexin Decoction and other treatments "heart pimple", is that scutellaria can eliminate heat numbness and heat rash. It can be seen that Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi can clear internal heat, especially deep blood and intestinal heat. If it is mixed with peony and licorice, heat pain is its main goal.
In fact, Huangqin Decoction can not only treat febrile diarrhea and febrile dysmenorrhea, but also have opportunities for application to many intestinal, reproductive tract, joint inflammation and congestive diseases that are manifested by pain, bleeding, and joint swelling and pain. Let me give you an example: S female, 23 years old, has pain in the sacrococcyx and left lower limb. The examination found that the anti-O, C-reactive protein, and erythrocyte sedimentation rate were all high, but antibiotic treatment was ineffective. Western medicine is inexplicable. She has white skin and red lips, dysmenorrhea, hemorrhoids, anal fissure, and blood in the stool. I use Huangqin Tangyuan Recipe. After a follow-up visit one month later, the lumbosacral pain disappeared and the laboratory indicators returned to normal.
By the way, after using Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi, there may be adverse reactions such as loss of appetite and nausea. However, Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi decoction is a compound prescription. As long as the prescription is corresponding, the soup will not be bitter, but it will not hurt the liver and stomach. However, there are 12 jujubes in the Fang, please do not ignore.
Huangqin Decoction for Treating Low Back Pain
Using Huangqin Decoction to treat Fure low back pain is my experience in recent years. It was previously introduced that S female, 23 years old, had pain in the sacrococcyx and left lower limb. The examination found that the anti-O, C-reactive protein, and erythrocyte sedimentation rate were all high, but antibiotic treatment was ineffective, and Western medicine was inexplicable. She has white skin and red lips, dysmenorrhea, hemorrhoids, anal fissure, and blood in the stool. I use Huangqin Tangyuan Recipe. After a follow-up visit one month later, the lumbosacral pain disappeared and the laboratory indicators returned to normal. After the Ching Ming Festival this year, the old mother with lumbar spondylosis suffered from waist ache and discomfort, and it was more difficult to get up. The left lower limb was involved, and the moxibustion plaster on her own was ineffective. My mother is healthy, with a big voice and strong pulse. Two years ago, after lumbar spine surgery, I used Xiexin Decoction and Yuemai Jiashu Decoction for treatment of intervertebral space infection. The low back pain was also treated as a heat syndrome, using Huangqin Decoction. It relieved after two doses and recovered after 5 days. That day, seeing old woman Z like this, she had a bottom in her heart, and without thinking, she took the scutellaria soup. The cork is added because of its local burning.
The white peony and licorice in Huangqin Decoction are an important combination of Zhang Zhongjing's treatment of foot spasm. The two medicines are used in equal amounts, which is the ancient famous prescription Shaoyao Gancao Decoction. An elegant name for soup. If the person has severe yang deficiency and cold, aconite and aconite can be added; if the person has a fever, scutellaria and cortex should be added. Clinically, cold and damp low back pain is more common, and heat pain is also uncommon. The three cases mentioned above belong to Futher back pain. The recognition of low back pain is based on the fact that the person is full of energy, with white lips and red tongue; second, the body is hot, sweaty, and the stool is dry or sticky or smelly, the anus is burning, or there is anal fissure; The joints are swollen and hot; fourth, there are many people who feel slippery when they feel the pulse.
Huangqin decoction has only four flavors, but it works very quickly, and its price does not exceed 10 yuan a day. With such prescriptions and such treatments, who wouldn't the common people say that Chinese medicine is good? !
