Chronic Lead Poisoning  慢性鉛中毒  (in English and Chinese 中英文)

Translated by: Joe Hing kwok Chu      按此看中文


Summary:  Using the formula called "Rid of Blood Stasis and Toxicity Tea" to treat chronic occupational lead toxicity on 23 patients produced satisfactory results; as reported by the Occupational Diseases Prevention and Treatment Clinic of City of Nanpin, Fujian Province, China.



As early as during the Song dynasty (960 -1279), traditional Chinese medicine text mentioned that when lead invades the body, it will remain in the organs and will cause qi stagnation  and blood stasis.


The manifestation of chronic lead poisoning:

damages of blood production system and nervous system.



Composition of Formula:

dan shen  40 g, tu fu ling 40 g, tao ren 15 g, yu jin15 g, chuan xiong12 g,  lu dou 90 g,  jin qian cao 30 g,  zhi da huang 10 g, gan cao10 g,


One dose per day. Each therapy period was 5 days with 3 days rest. The total therapy periods was 5. The morning urine was saved for testing lead in the urine. The lead in the urine was <0.3880 μM/liter. We used 40 ml of 50% of glucose solution with 0.5g of Na2CaEDTA  for intravenous injection once. We gathered the 24 hours urine sample for lead quantitative analysis. If the urine lead was <1.4400μM/24hrs, we stopped the therapy. For those whose tests were not normal we continued with the therapy.



Total patients: 23

Healed: 16

Effective: 7

Among the  patients' lead in the urine drop below 0.3880μM/liter:

  • after 3 therapy periods, 6 patients

  • after 4 therapy periods, 13 patients

  • after 5 therapy periods, 4 patients

After 5 therapy periods, the lead in the urine samples were in the range of 0.0320 - 0.2560 μM/liter. The average value was 0.1290 μM/liter.

Comparing before and after treatment the value was p<0.01.
