FORMULA EXPLANATION:

If, due to either external contraction or internal damage, the lungs lose their depuration and downbearing, the lung qi will not clear and the qi mechanism will become inhibited. If the lung qi becomes inhibited, phlegm fluids will typically be engendered, in which case there will be coughing with profuse phlegm. If phlegm fluids cause depression that transforms heat or becomes mixed with depressive heat floating upward from the liver and stomach, phlegm dampness will become phlegm heat. The tendency to engender phlegm is all the greater if there is an underlying spleen qi vacuity. In this case, the spleen qi is too vacuous and weak to move and transform water fluids. These collect and transform into dampness. If dampness lingers and endures, it will congeal into phlegm. Thus it is said, “The spleen is the root of phlegm engenderment; the lungs are the place where phlegm is stored.” Further, because the liver and lungs have a reciprocal relationship in terms of the flow of qi, if the lungs lose their depuration and downbearing, liver depression will be aggravated. Conversely, if there is liver depression, it makes it even harder for the lungs to recuperate. Therefore, this formula not only clears heat and transforms phlegm, stops cough and levels panting, but also harmonizes the liver and spleen.

Within this formula, Zi Wan, Bai Qian, Bai Bu, Ban Xia, Sheng Jiang, and Chen Pi rectify the qi, transform phlegm, and stop cough. Zi Wan, Ban Xia, and Bai Qian are an important combination for coughing and wheezing associated with profuse, difficult to expectorate phlegm. Jie Geng loosens the chest, diffuses the lungs, and transforms phlegm. It also acts to guide the other medicinals to the lungs and chest. Gan Cao and Jie Geng together are able to clear and disinhibit the throat. Zi Su Ye and Sang Bai Pi clear the lungs, stop coughing, and level panting. Fu Ling aids Ban Xia, Chen Pi, and Sheng Jiang eliminate dampness and transform phlegm. Huang Qin clears the lungs, while Dang Shen and Da Zao fortify the spleen and support the righteous. Chai Hu rectifies the qi and disinhibits the qi mechanism of all three burners.

In a study published on page 89 in issue #2, 2003 of the An Hui Zhong Yi Lin Chuang Za Zhi (Anhui Journal of Clinical Chinese Medicine), this formula achieved a 76.5% cure rate and a 94.9% total effectiveness rate in a group of 98 patients with chronic cough and asthma.
