Hence super cialis 80 mg line, heart fire and kidney water fail to interact super cialis 80mg amex, and this may also lead to the kidney qi failing to secure and astringe and control urination. In this case, kidney vacuity is the proximate cause of enuresis, but a disquieted heart spirit is a complicating or even causative factor. Before moving on to the Chinese medical treatment of enuresis, I would also like to explain why deep sleep is such a common part of pediatric enuresis. We wake when the clear yang qi is upborne to the heart which allows the spirit to flow freely to and through the sensory orifices to connect with the outside world. We go to sleep when this clear yang qi retreats and descends to the inner and lower parts of the body away from the heart. The clear yang qi is a by-product of water and foods transformed by the spleen and catalyzed by the kidneys, and we have seen that the spleen and kidneys are inherently vacuous and weak in chil- dren. In addition, when the yang qi arises to the heart, it must penetrate any phlegm, dampness, and turbidity before it can flow freely to and through the orifices, and infants and children typical- ly have more phlegm, dampness, and turbidity than adults do. Thus the abnormal deep sleep of the pediatric enuresis patient is typically some combination of spleen-kidney vacuity complicated by phlegm, dampness, and turbidity. Therefore, pattern discrimination is the absolute prerequisite for treating enuresis with TCM. In gener- al, the patterns of enuresis can be divided into vacuity and reple- tion patterns, with vacuity patterns being the far more important in pediatric bed-wetting. Kidney qi vacuity and spleen-lung qi vacu- ity are the two main vacuity patterns of enuresis, and these two patterns often complicate each other. Further, kidney qi vacuity may also be complicated by either yin or yang vacuity. Kidney qi insufficiency Note: Kidney qi insufficiency specifically refers to an insufficien- cy of the kidney qi not securing. Because it is a fundamental statement of fact that the kidneys do not become exuberant till puberty and are not firm and mature until the early 20s, an element of kidney qi vacuity is endemic to infants and young children. Signs & symptoms: Nocturnal enuresis one or more times per night, deep sleep, not easy to wake when called, devitalized essence spirit, a normal tongue with white fur, and a forceless pulse Treatment principles: The treatment principles for kidney qi insufficiency without concomitant yin or yang vacuity are to sup- plement the kidneys and secure the essence 44 Treating Pediatric Bed-wetting with Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine Guiding formula: Jin Suo Gu Jing Wan (Golden Lock Secure the Essence Pills) Sha Yuan Zi (Semen Astragali Complanati), 3-10g Qian Shi (Semen Euryalis), 3-10g Lian Zi (Semen Nelumbinis), 6-15g Lian Xu (Stamen Nelumbinis), 3-10g calcined Mu Li (Concha Ostreae), 3-15g Long Gu (Os Draconis), 3-15g Method of administration: This formula is available as ready-made pills for children old enough to swallow them.

In addition, antacids with calcium car- sorption of fat-soluble vitamins, and magnesium-containing bonate can cause alkalosis and raise urine pH; chronic use antacids interfere with absorption of vitamin A.
