200 ml – Immune tonic.

Based on a Chinese herbal formula called Jade wind screen from 1213 – Huang qi Astragalus, Bai zhu Atractyloides, Fang feng Ledbourileaea, Da zao – Zizipus, Sheng jiang – Zingiber,
Our immune tonic blends this traditional formula with the best adaptogenic herbs proven by modern research to have immune enhancing effects (e.g Echinacea, Eleuthrococcus, Codonopsis, Schizandra, Glycyrrhiza) to provide you with the perfect balance of herbs to gently yet effectively strengthen your immune system to deliver maximum performance and protection.
This formula is taken 2 capfuls in a little water once a day to strengthen immunity when you are well.
If you are in contact with anyone that has symptoms of a respiratory infection, and you do not, then take 3 times a day. If you start to manifest symptoms, stop the immune tonic and start to take

Yin qiao wan pills – this is a Chinese Herbal medicine formula from the 17th century – Jin yin hua (Lonicera), Lian qiao (Forsythia), Niu bang zi (Arctium), Jie geng (Platycoydons). Jing jie (Schizonepeta), Bo he (Mentha), Lu gen (Phragmatis), Dan dou chi ( Soja), Dan zhu ye – (Lopatherum) Gan cao – (Glycyrrhiza) for what is called “invasion by wind heat”…..
While this might sound like an arcane term we are sure that we can all relate to symptoms such as
Feeling hot and cold
Runny nose
Sore throat
In fact, all of those symptoms that we all exhibit at the start of a sore throat / cough / cold.
For best results these pills need to be taken very frequently – Swallow 2 pills hourly for 3 doses (e.g. 7, 8, and 9 am), 2 hourly for three doses (e.g.10, 12, and 2), 3 hourly for 3 doses (e.g. 5, 8, and 11).
Once symptoms (especially if you are having fever and chills) stop then reduce the frequency down to 4 times a day and then stop the next day.

Herbal gargle – Sage, Myrrh, Tormentil, Mint. For sore throats use half a capful to half a glass of warm water, gargle and then spit out.

If the infection is strong and the measures you have taken have not stopped it and it has got onto your lungs then

200 ml Cough medicine is included to alleviate coughs and infections.
Echinacea – Cone flower, Baptisia – Wild Indigo, Althea – Marshmallow, Thymus – Thyme, Inula – Elecampane, Marrubium – White Horehound, Jie geng – Platycodon, Huang qin – Scutellaria, Gan cao – Liquorice, Xing ren – Apricot.
