What is it?:
Honeysuckle and Forsythia (Yin Qiao Tang) is a popular and useful remedy to have on hand in your medicine cabinet. Take it as soon as you feel the first signs of a cold or flu coming on. Symptoms this formula addresses may include relatively high acute-onset fever, headache, painful sore throat**, thirst/dry throat, and dry cough.
IMPORTANT: This formula has to be taken within 24-48 hours of the onset of the symptoms for it to be effective. After that, different formulas should be used depending on how the presentation of symptoms changes.
** my personal favorite formula for this is Andrograhis formula (Chuan Xin Lian Tang)
What is it good for:
- acute on-set fever
- sore throat
- common cold & flu
Traditional Chinese medicine benefits:
- release exterior
- clear heat
- remove toxins
What else you might like to know:
It is important to understand that Chinese herbs work by restoring balance to the body. This means that you usually have to take an herb or a formula for a longer period of time than you would with pharmaceuticals in order to get results-- usually at least a month, and often times longer than that... it all depends on the individual and the nature of the ailment being addressed.
