Pinellia ternata has a clear nature, taste and channel, and is widely used in clinical practice. It is mainly used for various diseases caused by phlegm drinking. It is one of the commonly used Chinese herbal medicines by clinical doctors in ancient and modern times. Although ancient doctors have rich records on the compatibility application principles and related medicine of Pinellia ternata, today, when traditional Chinese medicine is modernized, there is a lack of effective sorting out of the pharmacological effects of Pinellia ternata compatibility on medicine.Through searching and sorting out the dictionary of traditional Chinese medicine prescriptions, this paper found that Pinellia ternata has obvious effects on anticoagulation, anti inflammation, anti-tumor, anti early pregnancy, sedation and hypnosis, and restricting toxicity It can be seen that it is of great significance to clarify the pharmacological action mechanism and detoxification mechanism of Chinese medicine compatibility for clinical prescriptions.
