Herbs to help white blood cell count
There are herbs reputed to improve white blood cell count (leucopaenia) in the blood stream. Remarkably a popular mixture was formulated in the 13th century in China before the condition was even understood. I have adapted the Chinese formulation to include modern scientific research.
White Blood Cell Proliferation (Leucaemia) – Herbactive WBC-Less Tonic (to decrease the white blood cell count)
The proliferation of cancer cells in the blood is a hallmark of leukemia. Any substances that can restore apoptosis (cancer cell death) show promise for leukemia healing. A very recent study published in the May 2016 edition of the journal Free Radical Biology and Medicine discovered that Sanguinarine in bloodroot can stimulate abnormal cell death through the “activation of caspase cascade, DNA fragmentation and down-regulation of anti-apoptotic proteins” in laboratory leukemia cells.

The Original Tonic Mixture for Low White Blood Cell Count (WBC-More Tonic)
The tea or tonic is known as Shi-Quan-Da-Bu-Tang (translated as Ten Significant Tonic Decoction Tea). It was formulated at the Taiping Hui-Min Ju (Public Welfare Pharmacy Bureau) in Chinese Song Dynasty in AD 1200.
It is prepared by extracting a mixture of ten medical herbs (Rehmannia glutinosa, Paeonia lactiflora, Liqusticum wallichii, Angelica sinesis, Glycyrrhiza uralensis, Poria cocos, Atractylodes macrocephala, Panax ginseng. Astragalus membranaceus and Cinnamomum cassia) that tone the blood and vital energy, and strengthen health and immunity.
The Medicinal Action
This blending of herbs became very popular for anaemia, anorexia, extreme exhaustion, fatigue, kidney and spleen insufficiency and general weakness, particularly after illness. It was also used by Chinese medical herbalists to restore immunity to help prevent cancer in people, and also to potentiate the therapeutic effect and ameliorate adverse toxicity of anticancer agents.
The Use in Cancer and Side-Effects of Chemotherapy
It appears that the synergistic actions of the herbs have immunomodulatory and immunopotentiating effects (by stimulating haemopoietic factors and interleukins production in association with Natural Killer (NK) cells, etc.), improving the therapeutic activity in chemotherapy (mitomycin, cisplatin, cyclophosphamide and fluorouracil) and radiotherapy, inhibiting the recurrence of malignancies, prolonging survival, as well as helping to prevent adverse side effects such as gastric disturbances such as anorexia, nausea, vomiting, hematotoxicity, immunosuppression, leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, anemia and nephropathy, etc. of many forms of chemotherapy.
This significantly increases the value of the traditional Chinese therapeutic approach of “toning the blood and strengthening Qi (vital energy)”; in preventative against developing abnormal cells called immunotherapy.
WBC Tonic and HerbShield
Deficiency or low white blood cells (WBC) in the blood can seriously compromise the body’s defense system (immune system). HerbShield has been around many years and so has a mixture called Essiac or Caisse Formula. These health tonics have served as preventative against developing abnormal cells as support and attack in the fight against life-threatening illness. Herbactive has added specific herbs to the traditional Chinese formulation to help improve its action and to normalize the blood ratio of red and white blood cells.
