Gypsum or Calcium Sulfate is a mineral and Chinese herbalism reveres Gypsum for ''clearing heat'' and ''draining fire''. Chinese Medicine is an energy medicine, working with the bioeclectric (energetic) body. Always the concern is that the energy of the body be in balance. If the body is not balanced it is important to ''detox'' the unbalanced energy. In Chinese herbalism there are 2 kinds of heat: external heat (a cold, the flu, sun so hot you get sunstroke). All of these heat conditions ''attack'' us from the outside.
The other kind of heat is an internal heat. This heat is a heat generated from within. This heat is often generated by the sluggish movement of energy in the digestive system, or dryness in the lungs. Or it can be seen in eczema or other outbreaks through the skin. Formulas such as Clear Heat address these issues. Gypsum can also be used in a formula to balance other herbs which are very warm in nature. For example, Gypsum moderates the effects of heat and dryness that Ma Huang produces. Ma Huang and Gypsum work together to treat coughing and sinus problems.

Rhubarb Root is considered a purgative, cathartic and laxative herb. All herbs that induce evacuation of the bowels fall into this category. However, Rhubarb is unique. It is a mild herb that has an affinity for the large intestine. It has three basic effects: it facilitates bowel movements in order to eliminate stagnant food; it clear heats from the system; and, it expels excess liquids. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine when the digestive system becomes sluggish (maybe from eating too fast all the time, or eating foods which are difficult to digest, or because of too much emotional stress), it creates a condition in the intestines called damp heat, causing constipation and/or hemorrhoids. Rhubarb drains damp heat, and it also both invigorates blood and dispels blood stagnation. This is critical for good intestinal health, because proper blood circulation allows for both better moisture in the intestines and for better nutrient assimilation. Traditionally, Rhubarb is combined with other blood building and moistening herbs to build a formula which is safe and gentle to help rebuild the health of the digestive system for chronic constipation. Check out the following description of Rhubarb.. For centuries the rhizome(root) of the rhubarb was highly regarded by the Chinese for its medicinal properties. Modern research has justified its reputation. It contains anthraquinones, which have a purgative effect, and tannins and bitters which have the opposite effect. If taken in small quantities the tonic, aperient effect predominates and it is therefore useful in cases of appetite loss and acute diarrhea. Used to treat constipation, dysentery, hemorrhoids, portal congestion, pin/thread worms, skin eruptions from faulty elimination, blood in the stool and duodenal ulcers. It has a truly cleansing action upon the gut, removing debris, and then astringing with antiseptic properties as well. It is used externally to promote healing, counteract blood clots and promote menstruation. Stronger doses are laxative after 8-10 hours and are used to treat chronic constipation. Rhubarb is included in some proprietary preparations and is also a component of herbal tea mixtures and digestive powders. In 1987 a research team investigated extracts of 178 Chinese herbs for antibacterial activity against one of the major microorganisms in human intestinal flora. Only Rhubarb was found to have significant activity. The herb can be applied to burns, boils, and carbuncles. It is a useful mouthwash for canker sores.
