His treatise “Detailed analysis of Warm diseases” and “Wu-Ju Tong’s collection of Case Histories” brought a hugely influential to subsequent generations in treating Damp-heat diseases. Objectives: Study on Wu-Ju Tong’s Damp-heat theory based on his book, “Detailed Analysis of Warm Diseases” and study his clinical application of herbs in treating Damp-heat diseases based on “Wu-Ju Tong’s collection of Case Histories”. Through this, classifying the Damp-heat typed diseases described in this book, and identifying the syndrome differentiation used in diagnose Damp-heat diseases, as well as to investigate the treatment principle. Besides that, it aims to determinate the prohibition in treating Damp-heat. As for the study in clinical application, it proposed finding out the most commonly used herbs group and most commonly used herbs in treating Damp-heat diseases. Methods: This research is applied analyzing and calculating methods of the journals, reference books and etc. literature review that related to it, so that concluded out the Damp-heat typed disease, syndrome differentiation, treatment principle, prohibitions, and the most common used herbs group and herbs in treating Damp-heat diseases. Results and Conclusions: Triple burner syndrome differentiation is based on the characteristic of Damp pathogen, the development of the disease and the pathological changes of Organs and viscera, to divide the course of disease into Upper burner, Middle burner and lower burner. The main treatment principle is clearing Heat as well as resolving Dampness; the disease should be dispelled out via the efficient way. For resolving Dampness methods, there could be “dispersing upwardly”, “smoothing Middle burner” and “leaching out downwardly”, based on the location of the diseases. The result of the clinical application of herbs in treating Damp-heat diseases was presented as: Result 1- Water regulating and Dampness resolving herb group is the most frequently used herb group in treating Damp-heat diseases is Fu Ling which belongs to Water-regulating and Dampness resolving group, as for Result 3 that collected 62 Damp-heat cases without the following-up treatment cases, has the similar result with result 2, means Fu Ling is still the highest frequency in Result 3, From the result obtained, it can be concluded that Wu-Ju Tong tended to use Water-regulating and Dampness resolving herb group as a part of prescription in treating Damp-heat diseases, among those herbs, Fu Ling is the one that is used most often.
