Deng Tie-tao,a doctor of TCM,believes that deficiency of earth-qi is the main cause of chronic hepatitis B. Strengthening the spleen and invigorating qi and supporting the earth and carrying wood are the general principles of treating chronic hepatitis B. Influenced by the thoughts of Huang Yuan-yu and Peng Zi-yi and other predecessors,Li Ke,an old TCM doctor,concluded that " three Yin meridians finally center on Taiyin meridian" ," the acquired stomach qi ( mid-qi) is the root of congenital kidney qi,and the continuation of life depends entirely on the nourishment and irrigation of mid-qi" ," earth can create all things,and the world does not exist without earth" . Combining the viewpoints of the above doctors,Professor Lu Ying has summarized that the main pathogenesis of chronic viral hepatitis is insufficiency of earth qi and excessive heat in blood veins. The treatment of chronic viral hepatitis mainly focuses on relieving strengthening the spleen qi and dispersing the local pathogenic heat,. Professor Lv has established prescription for treating hepatitis based on "method of strengthening the spleen to nourish the liver" ,which can not only protect the liver function of patients,but also protect the root of qi,and avoid the discomfort caused by antiviral therapy. It has a wide range of clinical application and remarkable curative effect.
