Notes: This is the formula for Qin Bo-Wei's treatment method #5 for Phlegm (p. 21 in Qin Bo-Wei's 56's Treatment Methods, Writing Precise Prescriptions. The above formula has been slightly modified to suit modern clinical practice in the United States. Please send us an email if you have any questions about this.
Currently it is illegal to use bulk Xi Xin in the United States for internal use. Therefore we use a certified aristolic acid free granular version. It is a 5:1 extract and the dosage is adjusted accordingly. It should be dissolved into the strained decoction.
