Yangyin Anshen Koufuye could obviously decrease the spontaneous activity of rats, effectively shorten the process of falling into sleep of normal rats which were injected pentobarbital sodium and prolong the sleeping time. The effect of sedation and hypnotism were the same as Zhaoren Anshen Koufuye. Yangyin Anshen Koufuye also could markedly reduce the serum tensity of T3, T4 of hyperthyroid rats, which equaled to TCM's deficiency of yin. It also could prevent the glycogen content of liver from decreasing, decrease heart rate, resist weight losing, thus to show the effect of nourishing Yin and tranquilizing.

Full Text Available Objective. The purpose of this systematic review is to evaluate the evidence of Yiqi Yangyin Huoxue Method for diabetic nephropathy. Methods. 11 electronic databases, through September 2015, were searched to identify randomized controlled trials of Yiqi Yangyin Huoxue Method for diabetic nephropathy. The quality of the included trials was assessed using the Jadad scale. Results. 26 randomized controlled trials were included in our review. Of all the included trials, most of them were considered as high quality. The aggregated results suggested that Yiqi Yangyin Huoxue Method is beneficial to diabetic nephropathy in bringing down the microalbuminuria (SMD = −0.98, 95% CI −1.22 to −0.74, serum creatinine (SMD = −0.56, 95% CI −0.93 to −0.20, beta-2 microglobulin (MD = 0.06, 95% CI 0.01 to 0.12, fasting plasma glucose (MD = −0.35, 95% CI −0.62 to −0.08, and 2-hour postprandial blood glucose (MD = 1.13, 95% CI 0.07 to 2.20, but not in decreasing blood urea nitrogen (SMD = −0.72, 95% CI −1.47 to 0.02 or 2-hour postprandial blood glucose (SMD = −0.48, 95% CI −1.01 to 0.04. Conclusions. Yiqi Yangyin Huoxue Method should be a valid complementary and alternative therapy in the management of diabetic nephropathy, especially in improving UAER, serum creatinine, fasting blood glucose, and beta-2 microglobulin. However, more studies with long follow-up are warrant to confirm the current findings.
To observe the effect of Qingre Yangyin Recipe (QRYYR) on sex hormones and insulin resistance (IR) in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) patients. Totally 90 PCOS patients were randomly assigned to the Chinese herbs group,the Western medicine group, the combined group, 30 in each group. Patients in the Chinese herbs group took QRYYR, one dose per day in two portions, once in the morning and once in the evening. Patients in the Western medicine group took Metformin 500 mg, twice per day for 3 consecutive months. Patients in the combined group took QRYYR and Metformin (the same as the former said two groups) in the 1st month, and took QRYYR for the following two months. Fasting blood glucose (FPG) and postprandial 2 h blood glucose (2 h GLU) were determined using hexokinase method before and after treatment. Fasting insulin (FINS), postprandial 2 h insulin (2 h INS), luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), estradiol (E2), progesterone (P), prolactin (PRL), and testosterone (T) were detected using chemiluminescent method. Leptin and adiponectin (APN) were determined using ELISA. Homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) was calculated. Body weight and height were measured once before treatment and once after treatment to calculate body mass index (BMI). The total two-phase basal body temperature (BBT) actually obtained within 3 months was statistically collected to calculate the two-phase BBT rate. Scores for Chinese medical syndromes were compared between the two groups before and after treatment. Compared with before treatment in the same group, BMI, FINS, 2 h INS, HOMA-IR, leptin, LH, PRL, T, and scores for Chinese medical syndromes obviously decreased, and APN levels increased (P medical syndromes was more in the Western medicine group and the combined group (P medical syndromes, with superior effect to that of Metformin. The effect in the combined group was better.

result from yin -y ang- blending career praxes. Growing developers benefit from a strategy sequence of yang-yin -synthesized; stranded developers from a strategy sequence of yin-yang -synthesized. Our contributions and limitations are discussed in the context of developing indigenous career theories and practices for a globalized and ever-changing world.
