Formula Rationale

Coptis Purge Fire is intended to treat intense, localized, excess inflammations in individuals with strong constitutions. The formula is a combination of three traditional formulas: Coptis and Scute Combination, Rehmannia and Akebia Combination, and Gentiana Combination (Long Dan Xie Gan Tang). These, along with forsythia (lian qiao), lophatherum (dan zhu ye), phellodendron (huang bai), anemarrhena (zhi mu), gardenia (zhi zi) and sophora (ku shen) have strong anti-bacterial and in some cases, anti-viral effects. Bupleurum (chai hu) invigorates liver qi and is used for prolonged infections. Tang kuei (dang gui) invigorates the blood and alleviates pain. Plantago seed (che qian zi) and alisma (ze xie) facilitate the body’s removal of toxins. Inflammations of the excess type tend to produce relatively large amounts of fluids which may appear as discharge or pus. Coptis Purge Fire contains sophora (ku shen) and akebia (mu tong) which clear heat and dry dampness.

3. For sinus or ear infections combine Coptis Purge Fire with Nasal Tabs (2 tablets of each formula, 4 to 6 times per day)
