Recently, the epidemic situation has become severe, and many front liners have been infected. I am Alexander Ho, as a Chinese medicine doctor from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, I would like to contribute my knowledge in Chinese herbs for Covid-19 prevention. Refer to ” The Handbook of Integrated Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine Prevention and Control of Covid-19″, I designed an anti-epidemic herbal tea that reduce risk of infection when close contact with Covid-19 patients.
Homodesty anti-epidemic herbal tea is based on the theory of preventive treatment of diseases in Chinese medicine :
— Supplementing Qi and nourishing Yin.
— Clearing dampness and disperse phlegm.
— Clearing away heat and toxic materials from lung.
Homodesty anti-epidemic herbal tea :
Radix Astragali 黄芪 15g
Radix Ophiopogonis 麦冬 6g
Flos Lonicerae 金银花 6g
Fructus Forsythiae 连翘 6g
Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae 陈皮 3g
Boil the 5 herbs with water, drink once a day, can be taken continuously for 7 days.
Functions of Chinese herbs :
At present, Radix Astragali is the Chinese herbs with the most prescriptions for preventing and treating Covid-19 in China hospitals. As early as 2003, it used in the prescription for SARS prevention and treatment as well, it was fully affirmed that Radix Astragali had the effects of nourishing the Qi of lung, strengthening the spleen and stomach, and regulating the immune system. Modern studies have proved that Radix Astragali protects the cardiovascular system, anti-arrhythmia, protects the liver, improves the cytopathic effect caused by a variety of viruses, reduces the level of inflammation, improves blood circulation and lung function.
Nourishing Yin, moistening the lungs and clear the fire from heart. This herb is very suitable for front liners who work under hot weather with PPE, The excessive sweating can interrupts the Yin and Yang of heart, resulting in weak vitality, chest tightness, palpitations, cold sweats, cold limbs and dehydration.
Flos Lonicerae and Fructus Forsythiae
Both herbs are often used to treat common cold with wind-heat syndrome or epidemic febrile disease. The anti-influenza virus active ingredients in Flos Lonicerae and Fructus Forsythiae can inhibit the activity of the Covid-19, reduce the release of inflammatory factors, and regulate the body’s immunity.
Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae
This herb regulates Qi , strengthens Spleen, removes dampness to reduce phlegm. It is also an anti-oxidant, antibacterial and anti-asthmatic herb with other functions, such as making expectoration easy, promote secretion of digestive juice, eliminate intestinal gas, dilate coronary arteries and promote the function of gallbladder.
The combination of the above Chinese herbs can make our front liners have stronger immunity and better energy level to prevent being infected. This Anti-epidemic herbal tea is just a basic formulation. If you have other chronic diseases, you can ask a Chinese medicine doctor to customize a herbal supplement.
