English Name: Virgate Wormwood Decoction
Source: Discussion of Cold Damage (c. 220)
Ingredients for 1 bulk herb vacuum sealed bag:
|Yin Chen (Artemisiae scopariae Herba)||36g|
|Zhi Zi (Gardeniae Fructus)||18g|
|Da Huang (Rhei Radix et Rhizoma) *||12g|
Suggested dose: 1 bag over 2-4 days. The above dosage is doubled from the original source.
* Da Huang is included in a separate bag, so that the practitioner can choose to either cook it the full time with the other herbs, or have the patient add it the last 5-10 minutes.
Note: Yin Chen is traditionally pre-cooked before the other herbs.
