Traditional Chinese Medical Actions:

Clears Heat, Drains Dampness, Moves Qi, Unblocks Stagnation, Promotes Urination, Relieves Stranguria, and Dissolves and Expels Stones.

Traditional Chinese Medical Explanation:

Stone Formula effectively targets “Shi-Lin” or “Stone Stranguria” with Qi stagnation and retention of dampness.

This is a form of painful urinary dysfunction or “Lin-Zheng” characterized by the presence of sandy particles and sometimes blood in the urine.

Urinary stones form when damp-heat in this region causes fluids to dry and congeal, and leads to the eventual formation of urinary calculi.

Clinical signs and symptoms include dull aching in the lower abdomen or flanks, excruciating pain in the lumbar region radiating towards the groin or abdomen, pricking pain during urination, yellowish red urine and sometimes sudden termination of the stream of urine.

Tongue: dark red. Coat: greasy yellow

Pulse: string-taut, tense

Presentation:

The classic patient with renal colic is writhing in pain, pacing about and unable to lie still, in contrast to patients with peritoneal irritation, who remain motionless to minimize discomfort.

The most common presentation is flank tenderness due to the dilation of spasm of the ureter from transient obstruction as the stone passes from the kidney to the bladder.

Stones obstructing the ureteroplevic junction may present with mild to severe deep flank pain without radiation to the groin, due to distension or the renal capsule.

Stones impacted within the ureter cause abrupt, severe, spasmodic pain in the flank and ipsilateral lower abdomen with radiation to the testicles or the vulvar area.

In this case, intense nausea, with or without vomiting, is usually present.

Stones lodged at the ureterovesical junction also may cause irritative voiding symptoms, such as urinary frequency and dysuria.

Calculi that have entered the bladder are usually asymptomatic and are passed relatively easily during urination.

Rarely, a patient reports positional urinary retention (obstruction precipitated by standing, relieved by recumbency), which is due to the ball-value effect or a large stone located at the bladder outlet.

Regardless of the location, pain often awakens the patient from sleep, begins as episodic cramping or spasmodic pain, and becomes constant and severe.

The lower abdomen or flanks may be painful if touched.

Other symptoms may include dark, smelly or cloudy urine, burning during urination, frequent, scanty, difficult or dibbling urination, and blood in the urine,.

If there is concurrent infection, there may be accompanying fever and chills.

Stone size does not correlate with the severity of symptoms.

Western Medical Explanation:

Urinary stone disease is the third most frequently urinary tract disorder following urinary tract infection and prostate disease.

It is also one of the most painful.

It is estimated to afflict 2 – 10% of the population in industrialized nations.

Initially, it affects men more frequently than women and presents around the age of 30 or 40. In later years, it affects mean and women more evenly.

Most calculi originate within the kidney and proceed distally, creating various degrees or urinary obstruction and pain as they become lodged in narrow areas including the ureteroplevic junction, pelvic brim, and ureterovesical junction.

Renal Calculi are polycrystalline aggregates that form when urine becomes supersaturated.

The crystals separate from the urine and build up microscopic particles on the inner surfaces of the kidney. Over time they develop into stones.

There are five major types of urinary stones.

The most common types are composed mostly of calcium (about 85%) making them radiopaque.

The standard of care may include conservative observation with pain medication for up to six weeks. If spontaneous stone passage fails intervention is required with lithotripsy and in some cases ureteroscopic extraction.

The recurrence rate of stone formation is quite high, some types reappearing within months, others over years.

Achieving a stone-free status is important as small stone fragments may serve as a nidus for future stone development.

Doubling fluid intake is considered to be of great importance. In addition to fluid intake, diet may also be an important factor and those with recurrent urinary stone disease may also be advised to restrict sodium and protein intake.

Those with sedentary occupations have been shown to have a higher incidence of this disease than manual laborers.

Geographic factors such as high humidity and high temperature appear to be contributing factors as well.

The appearance of symptomatic urolithiases is highest during the hot summer months.

Genetic factors may also play a role.

Biomedical Applications:

Stone Formula targets calculi occurring in the kidneys, ureters, bladder or urethra. Clinical studies on patients with calculi 0.4 – 0.8 cm in width and 0.6 – 1.8 cm in length that had failed to pass spontaneously, found Stone Formula facilitated movement of calculi into the lower part of the urinary tract for expulsion.

It increased the frequency of peristalsis in the urinary tract, increased chamber pressure in the ureters, and increased the amount of urine output, thereby facilitating the removal of calculi and alleviation of pain.

Other studies found Stone Formula could improve the physical-chemical indexes of the urine itself and enhance resistance to the formation of urinary calculus crystals.

It inhibited the congregation activity of the calculi and reduced the percentage of large crystal formation in the urine.

Dosage and Administration:

One pre-measured packet of mini-pills twice daily. One course of treatment is 6 – 8 weeks. Several treatment courses may be required.
