    What does it do?
    In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), our body is vulnerable to attacks of pathogenic influences such as cold, wind, and dampness. The attacks first invade the body's surface. When it occurs at the respiratory tract, the body may react with symptoms like fever, cough, and headache. When it occurs at the digestive tract, the body may react with throwing up and diarrhea. Modern medicine categorizes these pathogenic influences as bacteria and viruses.

    In hot and humid weather, bacteria and viruses grow and spread easily. Foods get more easily contaminated and spoiled. Temperatures vary significantly between day and night. People like to stay in air conditioned rooms, sleep without covers, drink a lot of cold water. These factors may render people more susceptible to the attacks of cold, wind, and dampness. As a result, people develop a set of symptoms that may be variably called summer colds, stomach flu, or heat stroke.

    Summer colds share some symptoms of a common cold like chill, fever, headache, cough, and running nose. However, summer colds also display symptoms of gastrointestinal upset marked by nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, and bloating. When the gastrointestinal symptoms like diarrhea dominate, the disorder is more often called stomach flu, or formally gastroenteritis. When the symptoms are clearly caused by a prolonged exposure to a hot, humid environment, the disorder is often referred to heat stroke.

    Huo Xiang Zheng Qi Wan is a primary herbal formula in TCM that addresses the above disorders. It has properties that separately take care of the aspect of common colds and that of gastrointestinal discomfort. It acts to disperse cold and dampness to remove external symptoms and harmonize the stomach. For this reason, it is a household Chinese medicine in China for gastrointestinal discomfort and widely used in traveling and outdoor activities, especially during the summer time.

    Huo Xiang Zheng Qi Wan is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia1 to relieve sweating and Dampness, and regulate Qi flow to promote digestion. The herbal formula is used for both exterior invasion of wind cold and interior injury of stagnated dampness marked by aversion to cold, fever, headache, chest distress, abdominal flatulence, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, borborygmus, diarrhea, tastelessness in the mouth, and whitish and greasy lingual fur on the tongue.
