Dry Rhizoma Zingiberis (Gan Jiang) has been substituted for Herba Asari Cum Radice (Xi Xin) due to Xi Xin’s containign aristolochic acid, and Dr. Wei’s optional ingredients have been added for both clear, runny nose and stuffed nose.

The remedial treatment of acute episodes of allergic rhinitis characterized by clear, runny, itchy nose, itchy eyes, and sneezing due to wind evils taking advantage of defensive qi not securing in turn due spleen (and possibly kidney) vacuity with deep-lying phlegm rheum.

The signs and symptoms of wind cold allergic rhinitis include:

  • Episodic or seasonal sneezing due to airborne allergens

  • Clear, watery runny nose

  • Itchy nose

  • Itchy eyes

  • Nasal congestion

 The signs and symptoms of spleen vacuity include:

  • An enlarged tongue with teeth-marks on its edges and white fur

  • A possible soggy pulse in the right bar position

  • Fatigue

  • Lack of strength

  • Possible loose stools

  • A craving for sweets and/or “sugar blues”

To get even more symptomatic effect for stopping bleeding, this formula can be combined with San Qi Wan (Pseudoginseng Pills) or Shi Hui Wan (Ten Ashed [Ingredients] Pills). If there's phlegm noduation, then pills for that can be taken simultaneously, such as Hai Zao Wan (Sargassum Pills). For even stronger supplementation of the spleen and boosting of the qi, one can combine this formula with Shen Qi Da Bu Wan (Ginseng & Astragalus Greatly Supplementing Pills), etc.

Formula explanation
In Chinese medicine, people who contract airborne allergies, ipso facto, suffer from a defensive qi vacuity. Since the defensive qi issues from the middle burner, this defensive qi vacuity is mostly due to a chronically vacuous and weak spleen failing to engender the lungs and defensive qi. Because of the close recipirocal relationship between the spleen and kidneys, there may also be a kidney qi vacuity. In either case, external wind evils may take advantage of this vacuity to enter the body where they obstruct the lungs’ diffusion and downbearing. Because the patient’s spleen is habitually vacuous, there is a tendency to phlegm dampness. This phlegm may be hidden or deep-lying, meaning that, during ordinary times, it is not apparent. However, whenever the lungs’ diffusion and downbearing of fluids is inhibited, this phlegm backs up and spills over, thus becoming apparent as mucus.

Therefore, this formula is based on the saying, “The spleen is the root of phlegm engenderment; the lungs are the place where phlegm is stored.” Within it, Codonopsis, Astragalus, Coix, and Disocorea supplement the lungs, spleen, and kidneys, the three viscera which govern water metabolism in the body. Terminalia and Schisandra secure the lungs and specifically stop runny nose. Ledebouriella and Schizonepeta relatively gently dispel wind evils from the exterior while not damaging the defensive qi. Flos Magnoliae and Mentha open the orifices and free the flow of the nose, thus relieving nasal congestion. Periostracum Cicadae dispels wind and stops itching. Platycodon guides the other medicinals to the lungs and also transforms phlegm. Dry Ginger warms the lungs and transforms phlegm. The combination of Coix and Alisma seeps dampness via urination and, therefore, helps Atractylodes eliminate dampness. Licorice harmonizes all the other medicinals in the formula at the same time as helping fortify the spleen and supplement the qi.

Research outcomes:
Thirty-three patients with wind cold allergic rhinitis and an underlying lung-spleen vacuity were given a single course of treatment with this formula and then followed for six months. In six cases, their symptoms disappeared and did not recur for the full six months of the study. In 23 cases, their symptoms recurred after more than three months but less than six months. However, repeat treatment was able to eliminate their symptoms. Only four cases got no effect. Thus the total effectiveness of this formula was 87.8%.


Contraindications: This formula is not for the treatment of wind heat or liver-gallbladder damp heat sinusitis. For that, consider using our Perilla & Mentha formula.
