Clear Lung Formula
Clear Lung is a modification of the Qing Qi Hua Tan Wan, an important classic formula, traditionally used in China to clear heat from the lung and dissolve phlegm, which results in a cough with thick, yellow phlegm that is difficult to spit out. In severe cases, patients with this pattern presentation may also experience shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. The addition of Fritillaria, Platycodon, Mulberry Root Bark and Hog Fennel Root strongly enhances the original formulas antitussive and phlegm heat clearing properties. Clear Lung should be combined with Resistance Acute for persistent viral or bacterial respiratory tract infection. Resistance should be considered for use after the acute stage illness has passed, to rebuild the Lung and Immune systems, thus preventing recurrence.
