Jie Geng - Platycodon Root

Excerpted from Bensky: Chinese Herbal Medicine Materia Medica

  • Open up and disseminates the Lung qi, dispels phlegm, and benefits the throat: for cough or wheezing with profuse sputum, throat pain, and loss of voice. Can be used for cough with profuse sputum from either cold or heat.
  • Pushes out pus: for expelling pus associated with Lung abscess or throat abscess. The traditional disease of Lung abscess is marked by fevers, chest pain, coughing of yellow sputum with a fishy smell, along with coughing up of blood and pus.
  • Opens up and raises the Lung qi, while also directing the actions of other herbs to the upper regions of the body: used not only to reinforce the actions of other herbs that clear and drain the upper burner, but also whenever the actions of a formula should be focused on the upper regions of the body.
