Summary

  • This formula is derived from a combination of Yin Qiao San (Lonicera and forsythia formula) and Sang Ju Yin (Mulberry and chrysanthemum formula)
  • These have been traditionally used in Chinese medicine to release the exterior and dispel wind-heat and wind-cold
  • The herb formulation is often used in order to provide comprehensive treatment for acute upper respiratory infections
  • This is particularly important in cases with wind-heat as these pathogens give rise to conditions that tend to progress rapidly
  • In this situation, the treatment aims to prevent the pathogens from moving further down the respiratory tract into the lung, in addition to resolving exterior syndrome
