The herbs used to treat lymphadenopathy, goiter, and abdominal masses are in this category. 56 Yi du gong du This refers to using a poison to combat a poison, the cancer. Generally, cytotoxic therapies are in this realm of treatment. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) have been in the process of testing many Chinese herbs for use as active agents against cancers, many of which fall into this category.

However, the dosing schedule, when higher amounts of chemotherapy are used over a longer interval between doses, can be used as a means for predicting an ebb and flow of physiologic activity in a given patient. This is another way in which formulas can be written. For example, in a 21-day regimen containing Adriamycin, the first 6 days are the phase in which the main cytotoxic activity occurs. Fast-growing cells are eroded during this time, including those of the epithelial membranes, causing dry mouth, mouth sores, vomiting, nausea, loss of appetite, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain and distention, possibly cystitis, skin rashes, and possibly palpitations.

The task is to understand the mechanism by which the agent or regimen is cytotoxic, the side effects of those agents, and then predict those areas of injury within the theory of Oriental or classical Chinese medicine. The formula should potentiate the mechanism of the chemotherapeutic regimen while treating the side effects. Formulas that protect bone marrow, the mucosal lining of the gastrointestinal tract and zang fu function are specifically designed for the regimen being used. When the normal function of healthy tissue is maintained as much as possible, this allows for two things: firstly the schedule for the chemotherapy can be maintained which, in turn, maintains a persistent level of cytotoxicity to kill every tumor cell, and secondly, the healthier and stronger the overall body function is, the greater the ability of the body itself to fight the cancer from the inside.
