This formula is for the treatment of chronic cough and chronic panting and wheezing manifesting as phlegm heat with either an underlying liverspleen disharmony or a shao yang aspect pattern.*
If, due to either external contraction or internal damage, the lungs lose their depuration and downbearing, the lung qi will not clear and the qi mechanism will become inhibited. If the lung qi becomes inhibited, phlegm fluids will typically be engendered, in which case there will be coughing with profuse phlegm. If phlegm fluids cause depression that transforms heat or becomes mixed with depressive heat floating upward from the liver and stomach, phlegm dampness will become phlegm heat. The tendency to engender phlegm is all the greater if there is an underlying spleen qi vacuity. In this case, the spleen qi is too vacuous and weak to move and transform water fluids. These collect and transform into dampness. If dampness lingers and endures, it will congeal into phlegm. Thus it is said, The spleen is the root of phlegm engenderment; the lungs are the place where phlegm is stored. Further, because the liver and lungs have a reciprocal relationship in terms of the flow of qi, if the lungs lose their depuration and downbearing, liver depression will be aggravated. Conversely, if there is liver depression, it makes it even harder for the lungs to recuperate. Therefore, this formula not only clears heat and transforms phlegm, stops cough and levels panting, but also harmonizes the liver and spleen.*
Within this formula, Zi Wan (Radix Asteris), Bai Qian (Rhizoma Cynanchi), Bai Bu (Radix Stemonae), Ban Xia (Rhizoma Pinelliae), Sheng Jiang (uncooked Rhizoma Zingiberis), and Chen Pi (Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae) rectify the qi, transform phlegm, and stop cough. Zi Wan (Radix Asteris), Ban Xia (Rhizoma Pinelliae), and Bai Qian (Rhizoma Cynanchi) are an important combination for coughing and wheezing associated with profuse, difficult to expectorate phlegm. Jie Geng (Radix Platycodi) loosens the chest, diffuses the lungs, and transforms phlegm. It also acts to guide the other medicinals to the lungs and chest. Gan Cao (Radix Glycyrrhizae) and Jie Geng together are able to clear and disinhibit the throat. Zi Su Ye (Fructus Perillae) and Sang Bai Pi (Cortex Mori) clear the lungs, stop coughing, and level panting. Fu Ling (Poria) aids Ban Xia, Chen Pi, and Sheng Jiang eliminate dampness and transform phlegm. Huang Qin (Radix Scutellariae) clears the lungs, while Dang Shen (Radix Codonopsis) and Da Zao (Fructus Jujubae) fortify the spleen and support the righteous. Chai Hu (Radix Bupleuri)rectifies the qi and disinhibits the qi mechanism of all three burners.*
The spleen is the root of phlegm engenderment; the lungs are [merely] the place where phlegm is stored.â€ It is spleen vacuity and liver depression transforming heat which give rise to phlegm heat in the lungs. Further, it is a vacuous, weak spleen which results in a defensive qi vacuity allowing for easy external contraction of wind evils. Therefore, this formula treats the root and tips or branches at the same time.*
