Xiao Chai Hu Teapills [200ct]
Xiao Chai Hu Teapills by Plum Flower
The pattern of conditions Xiao Chai Hu Tang deals with is known in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as Shao Yang Syndrome or Lesser Yang Stage disorder. Traditionally, this means that an external pathogen has penetrated the body (such as a cold or flu) but was not released properly or completely. The pathogen then sinks deeper into the body, becoming stuck in the level described as in-between the interior and exterior energetic systems. According to TCM, this "half-interior, half-exterior" level corresponds primarily with the Gall Bladder and Liver organs/meridians. Typical presentations of this pattern include alternating fever and chills, chest and rib-sides fullness and discomfort, a bitter taste in the mouth and dry throat, reduced appetite, nausea, vomiting, and irritability.
Many of the above signs indeed reflect disharmony of the Liver and Gall Bladder systems. Today, Xiao Chai Hu Tang is often used for diverse biomedical conditions as hepatitis, jaundice, common cold, and cholecystitis as they fit into the TCM pattern.
