According to Chinese Medicine theory, the prolapse of organs is caused by a deficiency of the Qi in the middle of the body, and the failure of Qi to ascend.

It is usually classified as either Pelvic Organ prolapse, which affects the uterus, bowels, bladder or vagina and Rectal Prolapse affecting the rectum, which is more commonly referred to as piles.

This is a weakness often experienced by older people, and a well-known medicine to tonify the Spleen, called Buzhong Yiqi Tang, will be prescribed.

Huang Qi (Radix Astragali), Chai Hu (Radix Bupleuri) and Sheng Ma (Rhizoma Cimicifugae) are found in this prescription. The individual treatment will depend upon the actual organ involved. As such, the herbal prescription may be subject to modification.
