Prof. Lieming Xu and Prof. Chenghai Liu from Shuguang Hospital reply as follows,
Constipation is very rare after the treatment of Fuzheng Huayu. It may be not the problem of the Fuzheng Huayu. Because peach seed from Fuzheng Huayu can relax the bowels and gynostemma pentaphylla can clear away heat and toxic materials. The damp, complication, drug combination and internal hemorrhoids should be taken into consideration. The patient can drink more water or use antipyretic and antidotal Chinese Medicine like Shuanghu Qinggan granules.
