Details of Tokoro Formula from the Cheng Clan
Wet dreams are a normal part of a young man’s reproductive growth. It is messy, but the dreams themselves can’t be beat. So if you’re under the age of 21 and still have one or two reasons to change your pajamas per month, you’re good. You’ll grow out of it. If you’re having more than one or two nocturnal emissions, keep reading.
If you’re over 21 and want to address this concern, keep reading.
It you’ve arrived at this page hoping to induce a wet dream, I can’t help you with that. Back to the search engines with you!
Cheng Shi Bei Xie Fen Qing Yin
Dr. Cheng’s Dioscorea Hypoglauca Decoction to Separate the Clear
Tokoro Drink to Separate the Clear (from Awakening of the Mind in Medical Studies – 1732 CE) modified
About this formula: this is a modification of Bei Xie Fen Qing Yin which is famous for “seperating the clear from the turbid”. That’s generally a reference to addressing cloudy urine. However with a few modifications, it is an excellent approach for nocturnal emissions due to damp-heat.
Damp-heat arises more easily in young men who run hot to begin with. As an example of this “running hot” notice how young people are perfectly comfortable in chilly weather wearing nothing more than a t-shirt while older people bundle up. In our youth, and especially adolescence, “yang qi is exhuberant”. Yang qi is
body heat, emotional passion, hormones, etc.
Damp-heat can originate externally too. Hot humid weather is a good example, but more often, especially among young men, is the damp-heat that arises from a
fast-food diet. If it’s deep-fried or causes obesity, you can pretty much assume that it is a generator of damp-heat internally in young men. Beer and alcohol also cause damp-heat.
Bi Xie 萆薢 fish-poison yam rhizome, tokoro Herba Dioscoreae Hypoglaucae
This is that herb that addresses
cloudy urine. Lacking that particular symptom, this herb serves as something of a back-up herb for when damp-heat seeps into the bladder leading to cloudy appearance in the urine. One might also consider this herb for retroflex ejaculation as well.
Fu Ling 茯苓 sclerotium of tuckahoe, China root, hoelen, Indian bread Poria Cocos
Che Qian Zi 車前子 plantago seeds Semen Plantaginis
Bai Zhu 白术 bai shu ovate atractylodes, Rhizoma Atractylodes Macrocephala
Shi Chang Pu 石菖蒲 sweetflag rhizome; acorus Rhizoma Acori Graminei
The four herbs listed above all excrete dampness in the body (via the urine). That last herb, Shi Chang Pu not only helps to dry dampness, but it focuses on the dampness in the heart that causes problems with
mental focus and potentially wet dreams as well.
Huang Bai 黃栢 amur cork tree bark, huang bo, phellodendron bark Cortex Phellodendri
This herb straddles two groups of herbs on this page. It
dries damp like the group of four above, and it cools heat like the four herbs below.
Chi Shao 赤芍 red peony root Radix Peoniae Rubrae
Dan Shen 丹蔘 salvia root Radix Salviae Miltiorrhizae, Salviae miltiorrhizae Radix [ caution]
Bai Jiang Cao 敗醬草 patrinia, thiaspi Herba cum Radice Patriniae
Sheng Di Huang 生地黃 Chinese foxglove root, rehmannia (fresh),Rehmannia root Radix Rehmanniae Glutinosae
The four herbs listed above all cool off the blood. To put that into modern terms, it will
cool-off a hot head. Naturally I’m referring to the head above your shoulders. However when the blood is hot, it can generate some neurological activity at night leading to wet dreams as well.
Lian Zi 蓮子 lotus Nelumbinis
This is one of many medicinal herbs that come from the lotus plant. It has an effect on the human heart but not so much the blood pumping muscle but rather human emotions. Should heat rise to the heart, the outcome is
making a big deal out of little things, restlessness, irritability, intense dreams, and wet dreams. So, this is something of a chill pill for the heart.
Gan Cao 甘草 licorice root Radix Glycyrrhizae [ caution]
Gan cao (licorice root) is used to get all of the above ingredients to play together better.
