You've Got a Cold. Now What?


This is one formula that I have stocked in the medicine cabinet at all times. Chinese medicine views the common cold (and the flu) as a struggle between the body's "defensive qi" and exogenous "pathogenic qi." If your defensive qi (similar to the immune system) is deficient, you are more susceptible to an attack by pathogenic qi. Virugo Max is used to reduce the virility of what acupuncturists call "pathogenic wind-heat." It has been used in Asia for over 30 years, and is distributed in the U.S. exclusively by Dragon Herbs.

Symptoms of wind-heat include fever and chills, with fever predominating, headache, a sore scratchy throat and yellow nasal discharge. Talk to your acupuncturist, or speak with a TCM practitioner at Dragon Herbs, about its proper use. Virugo Max is most effective when taken early after onset. Ron Teeguarden is a renowned herbalist based in Los Angeles. This is a man who is dedicated to researching and sourcing the very best in Chinese herbs.
