In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), our body is vulnerable to attacks of evils. The attacks first invade the body’s surface. If not halted they further invade the interior of the body. The evil Yin Qiao Jie Du Wan deals with is called Wind in TCM.
Yin Qiao Jie Du Wan works to halt the Wind invasion at the start. Yin Qiao Jie Du Pian is most suitable when comforts in the throat and head are being first affected.
In TCM terms Yin Qiao Jie Du Wan relieves the exterior, clears heat, and resolves toxicity. The TCM pattern it is applicable to is called “Wind-Heat”.
If you used Airborne®, you may be surprised to learn that it is adapted from Yin Qiao Jie Du Wan and contains several common herbal ingredients. However, the amount of these ingredients in Airborne® from its product information is only a fraction of that in Yin Qiao Jie Du Wan.
