For acute, paroxysmal allergic rhinitis due to a wind cold exterior pattern complicated by lung-spleen vacuity and deep-lying phlegm rheum
Bi Qiu Tang Jia Jian
This formula is a modification of Bi Qiu Tang (Sniveling Nose Decoction) created by Dr. Wei Zi-zhang of the Guangxi College of Chinese Medicine First Affiliated Hospital. Dry Rhizoma Zingiberis (Gan Jiang) has been substituted for Herba Asari Cum Radice (Xi Xin) due to Xi Xin’s containign aristolochic acid, and Dr. Wei’s optional ingredients have been added for both clear, runny nose and stuffed nose.
Our version is a 9:1 extract. 500mg 180 capsules.
Chinese Disease Diagnosis
Bi liu ti (runny nose), pen ti (sneezing), bi se (nasal congestion), bi yang (itchy nose), mu yang (itchy eyes)
Wind evils invading because the defensive qi is not securing the exterior. This in turn is due to insufficient spleen (and possible kidney) vacuity with deeplying phlegm rheum.
Secures the exterior and the lungs while gently dispelling wind, supplements the spleen and kidneys, eliminates dampness and transforms phlegm, stops itching and opens the flow of the nasal orifices
The remedial treatment of acute episodes of allergic rhinitis characterized by clear, runny, itchy nose, itchy eyes, and sneezing due to wind evils taking advantage of defensive qi not securing in turn due spleen (and possibly kidney) vacuity with deeplying phlegm rheum.
Although this formula dries dampness and transforms phlegm, due to the inclusion of Wu Wei Zi, Shan Yao, and Gan Cao, it also protects yin fluids. So it is not so likely to cause excessive dryness of the mucus membranes as does prolonged use of Western medical anticongestants.
This formula is not for the treatment of wind heat or livergallbladder damp heat sinusitis. For that, consider using our Perilla & Mentha formula.

In Chinese medicine, people who contract airborne allergies, ipso facto, suffer from a defensive qi vacuity. Since the defensive qi issues from the middle burner, this defensive qi vacuity is mostly due to a chronically vacuous and weak spleen failing to engender the lungs and defensive qi. Because of the close recipirocal relationship between the spleen and kidneys, there may also be a kidney qi vacuity. In either case, external wind evils may take advantage of this vacuity to enter the body where they obstruct the lungs’ diffusion and downbearing. Because the patient’s spleen is habitually vacuous, there is a tendency to phlegm dampness. This phlegm may be hidden or deeplying, meaning that, during ordinary times, it is not apparent. However, whenever the lungs’ diffusion and downbearing of fluids is inhibited, this phlegm backs up and spills over, thus becoming apparent as mucus. Therefore, this formula is based on the saying, “The spleen is the root of phlegm engenderment; the lungs are the place where phlegm is stored.” Within it, Dang shen (Radix Codonopsitis), Huang qi (Radix Astragali), Yi Yi Ren (Semen Coicis), and Shan Yao (Radix Dioscoreae) supplement the lungs, spleen, and kidneys, the three viscera which govern water metabolism in the body. He Zi (Fructus Terminaliae Chebulae) and Wu Wei Zi (Fructus Schisandrae) secure the lungs and specifically stop runny nose. Fang Feng (Radix Saposhnikoviae) and Jing Jie (Herba Schizonepetae) relatively gently dispel wind evils from the exterior while not damaging the defensive qi. Xin Yi Hua (Flos Magnoliae) and Bo He (Herba Menthae) open the orifices and free the flow of the nose, thus relieving nasal congestion. Chan Tui (Periostracum Cicadae) dispels wind and stops itching. Jie Geng (Radix Platycodi) guides the other medicinals to the lungs and also transforms phlegm. Gan Jiang (dry Rhizoma Zingiberis) warms the lungs and transforms phlegm. The combination of Yi Yi Ren (Semen Coicis) and Ze Xie (Rhizoma Alismatis) seeps dampness via urination and, therefore, helps Bai Zhu (Rhizoma Atractylodis Macrocephalae) eliminate dampness. Gan Cao (Radix Glycyrrhizae) harmonizes all the other medicinals in the formula at the same time as helping fortify the spleen and supplement the qi.
Three capsules two times per day. This formula is made from a 9:1 extract. That means the above dosage is equivalent to not less than 27 grams of bulk herbs. However, because our extraction process is so much more efficient than stovetop decoction, we believe this amount it is actually more like the equivalent to 40-54 grams of bulkdispensed herbs.
Thirty three patients with wind cold allergic rhinitis and an underlying lungspleen vacuity were given a single course of treatment with this formula and then followed for six months. In six cases, their symptoms disappeared and did not recur for the full six months of the study. In 23 cases, their symptoms recurred after more than three months but less than six months. However, repeat treatment was able to eliminate their symptoms. Only four cases got no effect. Thus the total effectiveness of this formula was 87.8%.
