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), which can be used concurrently with Yin Qiao if necessary.

    What is it good for:

    • acute on-set fever
    • headache
    • 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.
