Although there have been no prosecutions to date arising specifically from the use of non-plant ingredients – hence the Traditional Chinese medicine | 161 law has never been tested in the courts – the wider concerns about the lack of regulation of herbal medicines have put this issue in the spotlight and it is clearly desirable to put this part of the materia medica onto a secure legal footing bystolic 2.5mg. The herbal community is therefore pressing for an extension of the licensing exemptions to non-plant medicines order 2.5mg bystolic overnight delivery. It is suggested that, although the research is of variable quality, it should not be ignored. Adverse events, tolerability, and haemato- logical and biochemical parameters were monitored during the study. Treatment of side effects associated with chemotherapy treatment Short-term side effects of chemotherapy include fatigue, nausea, vomiting, mucositis, and myelosuppression or neutropenia. These occur during the course of treatment and generally resolve within months of completion of 162 | Traditional medicine chemotherapy. A variety of Chinese medicinal herbs has been used for managing these side effects. This has led to problems, because most of those who seek treatment are unable to distinguish between adequately and inadequately trained practitioners. Practitioners fall into three broad categories: • Those who have had a full training in the discipline This may be practitioners who have trained in China, normally for 5 years. Fully trained practitioners have training similar to that given to orthodox doctors in the west. They receive some training in western medicine and can distinguish those conditions that would be best treated by western medicine. These medicines carry with them a risk of adverse reactions; the risk needs to be quantified and as far as possible minimised. They should not take them if they are not labelled and [do not] include a list of ingredients in English. Even then, clear labelling is not in itself a guarantee of good quality standards. These companies import herbs from the People’s Republic of China either directly or through dealers in Hong Kong. The quality of imported herbs varies considerably, and great skill is needed to ensure that the correct herbs are provided to the practitioner. Some substitution of herbs is acceptable in China but can lead to problems if the wholesaler or practi- tioner is unaware of the substitution (see below). Confusion may arise over the precise identity of the herb being ordered; no standardised nomenclature exists for herbs. Fortunately, the best wholesalers and 164 | Traditional medicine properly trained practitioners are able to make fairly reliable checks, at least visually. Unrecognised contamination by other herbs, drugs and various chemicals (including heavy metals or insecticides) is another possible hazard. In an effort to improve the provenance of Chinese medicinal herbs a field cultivation project has been set up in Germany. These herbs contain variable amounts of highly toxic alkaloids, including aconitine, which activates sodium channels and causes widespread excitation of cellular membranes. The alkaloids have analgesic, antipyretic and local anaesthetic properties but they are potentially toxic. The toxic effects include severe cardiac arrhythmias, nausea, vomiting and general debility. These herbs, which are used to treat asthma, bronchitis and toothache, may contain hyoscine, hyoscyamine and atropine, and can cause flushed skin, dilated pupils, confusion and coma. Podophyllum pleianthum]) is a species of the May apple that is used for the treatment of weakness and snake bites. The resin is extracted from the plant rhizome and is thought to Traditional Chinese medicine | 165 contain a toxin that can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and abdominal pain. Between November 2003 and June 2004 four patients developed severe acute liver injury within 2 months of starting to take a slimming aid (Shubao), widely available in the West Midlands of England. Laboratory analysis showed adulteration with N-nitrosofenfluramine, a recognised hepatotoxin. Chinese infants are frequently given huang lian (Coptis chinensis) by their mothers to clear up ‘products of pregnancy’. Yin-chen hao (Artemisia scoparia) is used for the treatment of neonatal jaundice and has a similar effect although it does not contain berberine. Concurrent use with orthodox medicines There are two problems here: an enhanced activity from the herbal medicine or the orthodox medicine, or both, and an intrinsic toxicity, real or threatened, from the allopathic ingredient. Aristolochia is an example of a herb that not only is toxic in its own right but also its administration concurrently with allopathic drugs in Chinese herbal preparations (albeit inadvertently) may potentiate its action, causing severe adverse reactions (see below). More recently, the New Zealand Director General of Health advised consumers against taking a Chinese product known as cheng kum because it contained a pharmacy- only antihistamine that could cause drowsiness. They were advertised for use in the treatment of various conditions, including the promotion of joint mobility, healthy skin, as a support during menopause and of benefit while consuming alcoholic drinks. The Ministry of Health made the ruling following complaints from doctors about the product.
