" Minor Bupleurum Decoction" (xiao chai hu tang) is used in Chinese medicine to expel Pathogenic Qi from the Gallbladder/Triple Burner (shao yang) aspect, including the membrane source (mo yuan), where pathogenic Qi is said to hide. These disorders are considered to be " half internal, half external" in a " stalemate" situation where the body/mind is unable to expel the disorder, but it is not strong enough to overwhelm the immune system or progress to a deeper state. The hallmark symptomatology is alternating fever and chills. The prescription was designed originally for conditions like malaria, marked by alternating fever and chills along with periods of latency and activity. The alternation of Heat/Cold complex plus periods of latency and activity is also common with chronic immune disorders, such as chronic fatigue syndrome and other viral conditions for which Minor Bupleurum is extremely useful.
