Chinese Medicine – Covid 19


These days friends and colleagues have repeatedly asked me about the validity of the news from China, specifically from the city of Wuhan, on the integration Between Chinese medicine and Western medicine. I confirm this news and I would add that both of these therapies resulted in 90% recovery Of cases. An incredible achievement! After all, let us not forget that in the course of centuries in China there have been as many as 324 epidemics, from the Han Dynasty to the Qing dynasty, last in chronological order. Chinese doctors were able to Stemming the spread of epidemics with the use of phytotherapeutic products Of their ancient medicine.

The experience gained over these centuries has been essential for the corona – virus and I emphasize to you the phytotherapeutic formulas are different depending on the stage of disease: the preventive phase will be different from the flu phase and naturally from that of pneumonia, which represents the most difficult stage, overcome this phase, there is the detoxification phase, and finally the recovery phase. Therefore, each phase will have its own herbal formula. A this point I show you concretely some herbal formulas to give you a better idea:

Prevention phase formula:

Huang Qi 黄芪 (Radix Astragali) 15g, Bai Zhu 炒白术 (Rhizoma Atractylodis Macrocephalae), dry fried 10g Fang Feng 防风 (Radix Saposhnikoviae) 10g Mian Ma Guan Zhong 贯众 (Rhizoma Dryopteridis Crassirhizomatis) 10g Jin Yin Hua 金银花 (Flos Lonicerae Japonicae) 10g Chen Pi 陈皮 (Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae) 6g Pei Lan佩兰(Herba Eupatorii) 10g

Chinese Medicine and Covid -19

At this stage it is possible the intervention of acupuncture, which, as I said at the beginning, is only support. The purpose is to strengthen the immune system to help to alleviate early symptoms and to reduce the duration of the virus.

Bilateral points Zunsali, Qihai, Zhongwan

The next stage is That of the actual flu with a different set of symptoms and therefore you change the therapy phytotherapy:

By Zao大枣(Fructus Jujubae)

At this still early stage, acupuncture can still give its contribution, particularly for moderate situations.

The aim is to reduce symptom severity, duration, and ease the burden emotional.

Points: Bilateral Hegu, Taichong, Zusanli , Shenque.

In this other situation the herbal formula changes again, there is no provision for the acupuncture therapy, of course the symptomatology may be different from patient to patient and phytotherapy will be appropriately calibrated:

At this stage then, as mentioned earlier there is the intervention of acupuncture therapy, recommended points:

Dazhui, Gheshu, Feishu, Zusanli, Kongzui. Therapy is also provided here through the moxibustion.

Remedies that recur frequently In the formulas I presented are:

Astragalus root is a plant Of Chinese origin used as an immune system stimulant and tonic Of the organism. Astragalus root Is part of the formula for the Jade Fence powder an ancient recipe Chinese dating back about 5 centuries ago, associated with this root there is Atractylodis and Macrocephalae both with specific action on the lung. This formula is used as a prevention of respiratory diseases in particularly in children and the elderly. Another very interesting herb is Rhizoma Glycyrrhizzae, one of the 50 basic herbs used by medicine Traditional Chinese, employed particularly for infection of the tract upper respiratory, it is often associated with ephedra. Another combination of plants also extremely effective is the Suang Huang Lian represented by three plants: Lonicera, Scutellaria and Forsythia, of which antibiotic activity is known, Antiviral and anti-inflammatory.

This I have presented to you is an idea of therapy that was provided to me by Dr. Mary Cissy Majebé, president of the Traditional Daoist College of Chinese Medical Arts.
