Every October, my Chinese Medicine teachers would walk around the clinic carrying a mug full of hot tea with what looked like popsicle sticks protruding out.
“What are you drinking Dr. Wang?” or “What’s with the popsicle sticks Dr. Ding?” I asked.
They would all reply…”Ancient Chinese Secret!”
“Secret for what ?” I asked.
“You will find out soon” they would reply.
Sure enough I did find out. My Chinese Medicine professors never got sick during the cold and flu season! It turns out those popsicle sticks or their “Ancient Chinese Secret” was a powerful herb called astragalus.
Astragalus has been used in Chinese Medicine to support and enhance the immune system for thousands of years. The root is used in teas, soups and herbal formulas to help prevent colds and flu’s.
Our feature product this month is Jade Windscreen. Astragalus is the main ingredient of Jade Windscreen and is my herb of choice to protect me from colds and flus during the winter months. I begin taking Jade Windscreen in the beginning of October for prevention.
Jade Windscreen is a very safe herbal formula that is well tolerated by all my patients. It comes in a convenient tablet form and is very cost effective.
