Ge Xia Zhu Yu Tang – treating liver tumors

This formula is very similar to Xue Fu Zhu Yu Tang and treats the blood stasis tumors of the liver. I often times pair it with Xiao Chai Hu Tang. I do not use this formula for tumors that originate in the spleen as those are usually hemangiosarcoma.

  • Tao Ren (peach seed)
  • Dang Gui (angelica root)
  • Hong Hua (safflower flowers)
  • Chi Shao (red peony root)
  • Zhi Ke (bitter orange)
  • Chuan Xiong (lovage root)
  • Gan Cao (licorice root)
  • Mu Dan Pi (tree peony root)
  • Yan Hu Suo (corydalis)
  • Xiang Fu (cyperus)
  • Wu Yao (lindera root)

I usually add San Leng (scirpus rhizome) and E Zhu (turmeric) to this formula to enhance its effect against cancer. Studies done on these two herbs show that they have a significant effect in inducing apoptosis (cell death) in cancer cells.

I dose this one the same as Xue Fu Zhu Yu Tang. Usually twice a day.
