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 supplements 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 consultations, Anastacia White, Chinese Medical Sciences, recommends the following Three Treasures® formulae to address viral invasion and suggests having an “expel wind” formula for immediate use. “The expel wind formulas are far more effective if taken at the very onset, of viral invasions. 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.
