Xie Bai San drains Lung Heat, calms wheezing

Xie Bai San - Xiao Er Yao Zheng Zhi Jue

Drain the White powder

Chao Sang Bai Pi (dry fried cortex mori albae radicis)30g

Di Gu Pi (cortex lucii radicis)30g

Zhi Gan Cao (honey fried radix glycyrrhizae uralensis)3g

Geng Mi (non-glutinous rice)15-30g

Indications: moderate residual Heat in the Lungs with deficiency causing Qi to rebel- cough and wheezing, skin feels warm to the touch (Lungs govern skin), dry mouth and throat, scanty sputum that is difficult to cough up (Heat injures the Lung Yin), T- red with scanty or yellow coat, P- thin rapid. King Sang Bai Pi drains Heat from the Lungs and calm wheezing and cough. Di Gu Pi the secondary herb clears Heat from deficiency. This formula is good for children because the 2 main herbs are sweet and cold instead of the usual bitter and cold, although it may be too cold for some with Spleen deficiency (even after Sang Bai Pi and Gan Cao are fried, and Geng Mi is added to protect the Spleen), these aspects also make Xie Bai San useful when it is hard to determine whether a condition is excess or deficiency.

This can be used for such conditions as bronchitis, pneumonia, pertussis, late stage flu.
