Quick Overview

Resolves the exterior and dispels wind, clears heat and resolves toxins, disinhibits the throat and abates fever at the same time as harmonizing the liver-spleen, transforming phlegm, and eliminating dampness




This formula is for the treatment of a wind heat external invasion exterior pattern in a person with a righteous qi vacuity and liver depression qi stagnation. There may also be phlegm nodulation and/or heat toxins. Although Xiao Chai Hu Tang is the classic Chinese formula for a shao yang division disease, one can use the above modification of this formula whether or not the patient has a shao yang pattern. In this case, the rationale for this formula is not based on Zhang Zhong-jing’s original indications but rather on an analysis of each ingredient. 
In terms of disease diagnosis, this formula is for common cold and epidemic influenza with possible bronchitis and especially in women as opposed to men, and even more especially perimenstrually. However, if the patient’s pattern conforms, this formula may be taken by men and women alike and regardless of phase in menstrual cycle. For instance, this formula is also often indicated for postpartum fevers and flus and for the recurrent fevers, sore throats, and swollen glands of people with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).

Cold Quell

This formula is a combination of two of the most famous formulas in Chinese herbal medicine. Xiao Chai Hu Tang comes from Zhang Zhong-jing's Shan Han Lun (Treatise on Damage [Due to] Cold). Si Wu Tang comes from the Tai Ping Hui Min He Ji Chu Fang (Tai Ping [Era] Imperial Grace Formulary), a famous formulary published in the Song dynasty. Our version is a 10:1 extract.


Pattern Discrimination

 

Wind heat external contraction and possible heat toxins with an underlying liverspleen disharmony resulting in a defensive qi vacuity, an inhibited qi mechanism, concomitant internal heat, and deeplying phlegm dampness
