|Description||The Upper Burner disorders of children are paradigmatic of Wind invasion. External Wind agitates Qi and Moisture, inducing spasms, congestion, and pain. Because of the natural reactivity of infants and small children, rebellion is often the motif of their afflictions: the damp, warm Qi of the Stomach, Intestines, and Gallbladder easily revolts upward, obstructing the descent of Heart and Lung Qi (Zong qi) from the head and chest. As a result, profuse, sticky yellow or green exudate (Heat and Phlegm) are generated quickly, with no easy means of egress other than through the openings of the nose, eyes, and ears - the ears being the least adequate and last resort.
Although the Defensive Qi (Wei) or youngsters is fragile, it is extremely vigorous, so that minor ailments like colds or teething are characterized by sudden onset, abundant secretions, acute distress, or rapid fluctuations. Windbreaker addresses the early stages of illness or conditions that tend toward any of the ubiquitous -itis\'s: otitis, sinusitis, rhinitis, pharyngitis, and bronchitis. Such ailments often arise when children become over-heated, overtired, or following sudden changes in temperature and humidity. A slight cough, a runny nose, a scratchy throat and increasing irritability or lethargy may be the early warning signs of an impending cold or flu.
This formula can also be used preventively, offering protection from exposure to allergens or the weather and a bulwark against lowered resistance following excessive mental or emotional stimulation. The goal is to quickly eliminate the primary pathogenic agents of Wind and Heat, unblock the upper orifices, and reduce the inflammatory symptoms of fever, ear ache, sore throat, rhinitis, conjunctivitis, and rash.
