Explanation
Expel Wind-Heat™ is a variation of the classical prescription Yin Qiao San (Lonicera- Forsythia Powder). This variation expels Wind-Heat and releases the Exterior. The formula is used only for the exterior stage of an invasion of Wind-Heat.

If the disease progresses to the Qi Level, then the formula Ringing Metal™ or Clear Metal™ is applicable. The formula is obviously only for acute invasions of Wind-Cold at the initial stage when the Wind-Cold is on the Exterior. It is therefore contraindicated for any condition that is not exterior and not caused by Wind-Cold.

When to take
Take after meals.
