Western medicine views common cold virus infections to be mild, self-limiting upper respiratory infections which resolve in several days. This assumes a healthy adult physiology and rest during the time of convalescence. In contrast to this, the common cold virus infections can be dangerous and compromising to young children and elderly adults. Flu virus infections can be more virulent and compromising to a broader spectrum of people.
Traditional Chinese Medicine views cold and flu viral infections as a disease caused by exogenous Wind-Heat, an exterior pathogenic factor attacking human body surface. Signs and symptoms of cold/flu viral infections due to exogenous Wind-Heat included fever with or without sweating, chilly sensations, thirst, cough, drainage from sinuses and nose, headache, sore throat, achy joints.
This formula is not only for the first sign of Wind-Heat conditions when they are easier to treat. This formula is also effective during later stages. If the infection has proceeded to the lower respiratory tract with coughing and chest pain, please use Dr. Kang Formula #2 - LR-Cough. This formula also can be used to prevent Wind-Heat when other family members are sick. Dr. Kang recommends keeping the air in the room fresh. Use vinegar in a humidifier as increased acidity is antiseptic for airborne bacteria and viruses.
