[ANALYSIS OF FORMULA]: It is a common formula for treatment of cough and asthma due to cold phlegm. White mustard seeds in the formula warm the lung, promote the flow of qi, soothe the chest and resolve phlegm to stop cough and asthma. Radish seeds promote digestion to relieve food retention.

in clinical practice, analysis has to be made to define which symptom is pre­dominant, and then corresponding herb can be used as the principal one to ensure the good result. However, this formula is for lowering qi and resolving phlegm and aims at treating the “branch”of disease. When effective result is obtained after ad­ministration, the “root” of disease should be taken into consideration for treat­ment.

Today it is used for chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma, pulmonary emphysema and other diseases manifested as the syndrome of phlegm accumulation and qi stagnation.
