A Fond Farwell- By Barbara Lowell

July 5th 2010 will be a new day for me, just a few days short of serving you all for 6 years with the Chi Institute. It’s been a fine chance for me to contribute my heart to the lessening of pain and anxiety of our animal friends, their compassionate owners, and most of all the dedicated and noble veterinarians who attend our classes. Soulmates … Bless You All!!

Urinary Incontinence caused by Kidney Qi deficiency Resolved by Suo Quan Wan

by Ellie Bush, DVM, in Vacaville, CA

Godiva, a 3-year old, 60 poundb spayed female labrador retriever, had been seen by another vet for a problem with urinary incontinence, which began shortly after she was spayed as a puppy. She would leak urine while sleeping, leaving a large wet area on her bedding. She had been treated with phenylpropanolamine unsuccessfully. Her owner was eager to try a new approach and quite receptive to integrate TCVM into a thorough Western evaluation.

A Guide to the Selection of Yin Tonic Herbal Formulas

A Guide to the Selection of Yin Tonic Herbal Formulas

by Huisheng Xie, DVM, PhD, MS

The Yin Tonic herbal formulas are used for the treatment of Yin Deficiency Patterns. Common signs of Yin Deficiency are cool-seeking behavior, panting, hot ears/nose, restlessness or hyperactivity, irritability, low fever, a red, dry tongue, and a thin, fast pulse. The King ingredients of these formulas include Sheng Di Huang (Rehmannia), Mai Men Dong (Ophiopogon), Bai He (Lily), and Shan Zhu Yu (Cornus). Yin Deficiency often leads to generation of false Heat or Fire in the Interior. Therefore, the herbal formulas to tonify Yin are often supplemented by the herbs to clear Heat such as Zhi Mu (Anemarrhena) and Huang Bai (Phellodendron). Yin tonic herbs are sweet, cold, enriching and tend to cause stagnation, and therefore are inappropriate to use as individual herbs in certain clinical conditions. Contraindications for Yin tonic herbs include: 1) Spleen Qi Deficiency, 2) Internal Phlegm or Damp, 3) Abdominal distension, and 4) Diarrhea, unless additional herbs are added to balance the primary characteristics of the Yin tonics.
