Asthma, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Therapy
By: Joe Hing Kwok Chu
In general, asthma has to be treated according the traditional diagnostics of zheng (syndromes).
(1) When the condition is acute, the symptoms have to be controlled using formulae to cut down histamines, expand the bronchia, and stop the coughing and wheezing so the patients can breathe better.
The following are commonly used formulae according to the diagnostics:
ding chuan tang
xiao qing long tang (can be toxic because of the ingredient xi xin.)
san zi yang qing tang
(2) After the acute period has been controlled, the therapy should be geared toward correcting the functions of the body.
The following formulae can be selected according to the diagnostics:
shi quan da bu tang
bu zhong yi qi tang
you gui wan
gui pi tang
jin gui shen qi wan
bu zhong yi qi tang, 補中益氣湯
