Chinese herbal medicine Treatment varies according to the symptoms, the predominance of ‘heat’, ‘cold’, and other pathogens, and the strength of a patient’s qi. An individual’s prescription will vary according to the differentiated patterns of ‘wind-cold’.
Individual Chinese herbs that expel exterior ‘wind-heat’ or wind-cold’ are combined with specific herbs that treat symptomatic conditions and, if necessary, increase the body’s resistance so that the pathogens can be eliminated more rapidly. For example, detoxifying herbs such as Jin Yin Hua (Lonicera) and Lian Qiao (Forsythia) are used to treat ‘wind-heat’, and Gui Zhi (cinnamon Twig) and Sheng Jiang (fresh ginger) are used to treat ‘wind-cold’. These herbs may be found in traditional formulas combined with other herbs that are then individualized to specific conditions.
The Chinese herbal formula is consumed as a drink, three times a day. Chinese Master indicates that the ingredients are a “family heritage” which was inherited from his father and later refined by him.
