T he American Oriental medi- cine (OM) scholar Andrew Ellis relayed to me a thought from his teacher about a means to enhance the effect of formulations designed for heat-clearing therapy (1).

This concept, aside from its potential contribution to hastening recovery of patients who will receive heat-clearing therapy, is a useful teaching tool regarding the way to utilize key elements in herbal formulations and in elucidating basic concepts about OM terminology and dogma. Classic texts and modern depictions of Chinese medicine do not display a standard approach of removing heat through urination.
