Epidemics are exceptional patterns of chaotic qi and wind; Chinese medical theory was created to respond to the flow of qi and the earth provides the medicines that tonify the immune system and expel wind.

As many practitioners are relying more on herbal products during this time of less frequent, in-person treatments, Anastacia White, Chinese Medical Sciences, recommends the following Three Treasures® formulae for prevention and treatment of viral invasion and suggests having an “expel wind” formula for immediate use at the very first symptom experienced. “The expel wind formulas are far more effective if taken at the very onset, of viral infection. Take the formula every 2 hours for at least the first 24 hours”.

Below is Anastacia’s quick guide to the Su Wen Herbs – Three Treasures® formulae for the Different Stages of Viral Invasions.
