What does it do? In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)
This formula is acrid, cool by nature, promotes sweating to expel exogenous pathogenic factor from the body surface, dispels heat and detoxifies. It is used to help febrile diseases in their initial stages when the patient feels hot but does not feel aversion towards cold or when a slight aversion is felt towards cold, with headache, thirst, cough, sore throat, redness of the tip of the tongue, thin white fur on the tongue or thin yellow coating on the tongue, or fast and floating pulse.
The Lonicera(Jin Yin Hua) and Forsythia(Lian Qiao) in this formula are acrid, cool by nature and promote sweating to expel exogenous pathogenic factor from the body surface. They have strong heat dispelling and detoxifying properties and the quantity of these two herbs which is used in this formula is rather large: they are the two principal herbs in this formula. When combined with Platycodon(Jie Geng) and Arctium(Niu Bang Zi), they eliminate blockages of vital energy in the lungs and clear the throat. Schizonepeta(Jing Jie), Mentha(Bo He) and Glycine(Dan Dou Chi) max disperse Wind-Heat pathogenic factor and assist Lonicera(Jin Yin Hua) and Forsythia(Lian Qiao) in expelling exogenous pathogenic factor from the body surface. In dispelling heat and detoxification, they reinforce the therapeutic effects of the two main herbs in this formula. Phragmites(Lu Gen), Lophatherum(Dan Zhu Ye) and Glycyrrhiza(Dan Dou Chi) dispel heat, promote the production of body fluids and relieve thirst. All of these herbs when used in combination cause the expulsion of exogenous pathogenic factors from the body surface and eliminate heat.
This formula is clinically used to help common cold, and other febrile disease in their initial stages. However, it must be noted that the above formula is suitable for use only in cases of superficial heat syndrome which are purely febrile in nature without dampness. (Wen Bing Tiao Bian)
