玉屏风散 / Yu Ping Feng San

Treats the following symptoms:

Tonic Defensive Qi was created by Wei Yilin, a Chinese physician in the Yuan Dynasty, and is a classic formula for strengthening Qi and solidifying the resistance. Strengthening Qi refers to nourish Qi of the Lungs and Spleen. The Defensive Qi (resistance) is controlled by the Lungs. Lung Qi is produced by the Spleen, with a strong Qi of the Spleen, the Qi of Lungs are exuberant. The strong Qi of Lungs and Spleen make the body’s resistance strong and external Evils are inviolable.

Modern medicine believes that Tonic Defensive Qi has the effects of immune enhancement, anti-fatigue and anti-allergy, and it is suitable for diseases characterized by fatigue, spontaneous sweat and aversion to Wind. Moreover, it can prevent colds, and it is especially suitable for patients with frail physical weakness, low immunity and prone to sweat and catch colds easily.

Disease description:

The immune system serves to protect our bodies against viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites. The system in itself is highly complex and science has yet to fully understand it. Unfortunately, the body’s defence does not always work optimally and sometimes pathogens manage to overcome our natural defence, making the body susceptible to infections such as colds and flu and other diseases. In some cases, over-reactions of the immune system can lead to allergies or autoimmune diseases. Nutrition, fresh air and exercise have an important role in strengthening the immune system.

Explanation according to the Traditional Chinese Medicine:

The immune system is what Chinese medicine calls Zhengqi or Wei Qi and it is the body’s defence mechanism. If the organs and meridians Qi are insufficient, the Evil will invade the body and cause diseases. Therefore, boosting and balancing the immune system is improving the body’s ability to resist Evil or to recover from chronic diseases by supplementing Qi and Blood.
