Enteritis - Treatments In Traditional Chinese medicine perspective

Acute Enteritis, in most cases is defined as a condition of inflammation of the small intestine as a result of eating and drinking contaminated water and foods infected by virus and bacteria. But according to the study by the University Hospital Aintree, chronic radiation enteritis is an increasing problem, as more patients receive radiotherapy as part of their cancer therapy and as the long-term survival of these patients improves(a). Other study indicated that acute radiation enteritis is almost inevitable in the curative treatment of malignant tumors of the abdomen and pelvic area. It is frequently a self-limiting disorder of intestinal function associated with reversible mucosal changes of the intestine(b). The prevalence of the disease although is decreasing, it still affects millions (approx 1 in 83 or 1.20% or 3.3 million people in USA ) of people in the U.S alone, according to the statistic. Chronic enteritis is a condition of inflammation caused by other health conditions, such as Crohn's or celiac disease.

2. Jiechang Mixture (JCM)
In the study to evaluate the therapeutic effect and mechanism of Jiechang Mixture (JCM) in treating infantile mycotic enteritis, showed that the time of stool forming, diarrhea relieving and fungi vanishing in the treated group were significantly shorter than those in the control group (P < 0.01), and JCM also showed a better effect in improving clinical symptoms and signs of patients than the control. Results of experimental study showed that JCM could abate the ink evacuation of small intestine in mice. The fungi inhibitory test suggested that Candida albicans was susceptible to JCM(55).

3. Zhixie buye mixture

It has a good prospect of development and application(56).

4. Fu-zheng qu-xie
In the study of the of fu-zheng qu-xie on gastric disease infected with Campylobacter pyloridis] by Jiangsu Provincial Hospital of TCM, pointed out that the principle of Chinese herbal medicine treatment of gastric disease by campylobacter pyloridis was fu-zheng qu-xie. Fu-zheng was achieved by Astragalus membranaceus, Atractylodes macrocephala and Paeonia lactiflora, whereas qu-xie by Taraxacum monogolicum and Oldenlandia diffusa. Chinese herbal medicine for fu-zheng played an important role in modulating immune function. Qu-xie was directly disinfective and indirectly anti-bacterial. Chinese herbal medicine combined with western drugs will decrease the side effects and enhance the curative effect at the same time(57).
