How Cold Away Works

Traditional Chinese medicine approaches wind-heat disease and cold or flu with herbs that have been historically used. Angelica dahurica or bai zhu has been traditionally used since 400 BC for decreasing nasal congestion and tonifying the blood. Isatis root or ban len gen was used for fever and infections. Xanthium or cang er zi has been traditionally used to alleviate pressure in the sinuses. Citrus peel or chen pi was for cough, vomiting or constipation.

Cold Away formula incorporates these herbs into a modern herbal formula modified from a combination of the two formulas yin qiao and gan mao ling. It has been used for over 10 years in the practice of Acupuncturist, Misha Cohen OMD, L.Ac.

Ingredients in Cold Away
