The condition Ba Zheng San deals with is called "Lin Syndrome" (淋证) from the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Lin Syndrome is characterized with painful and dribbling urination and is classified into multiple types depending on whether the urine has blood, stones, or murky appearance etc. The most common cause of Lin Syndrome is the damp heat of the bladder. Accordingly, the main treatment principle is to clear Heat, remove Dampness and promote urination.
Ba Zheng San has successfully implemented the principle since its invention 900 years ago. Many clinical studies have established its value in UTIs. For example, Ba Zheng San was used to treat 67 cases of pyelonephritis, of which 54 were recovered with no display of symptoms and a clean urine lab result. In another study of 105 acute Lin syndrome cases, 67 showed a complete recovery and 28 significant improvement after a personalized application of Ba Zheng San. The time to see the results varies from 3 to 10 days in yet another study.1
Ba Zheng San is most suitable for the Lin syndrome presenting with urgent and burning urination, little volume of urine that is dark and turbid, heavy feeling in the lower abdomen, thirsty mouth, red tongue with yellow fur, and slippery forceful pulse.
