[ANALYSIS OF FORMULA]: This is a common formula for expelling cold to relieve the exterior and warming lung to resolve fluid-retention. As the main herb, ephedra is to induce perspiration for relieving the exterior, to disperse the lung for relieving asthma, and to excretes water for alleviating edema. Being pun­gent and sweet flavors and warm nature, cassia twig acts as the assistant herb to help ephedra relieve the exterior as well as warming yang to promote the transformative function of qi. According to the principle that “diseases pertaining to fluid-retention should be treated with warm-natured herbs”dry ginger warms the spleen and lung; pinellia tuber dries dampness, resolves phlegm and lowers the turbidness;both asarum berb and schizandra fruit strengthen the effect of war­ming the lung and resolving fluid-retention and can prevent consuming the lung-qi for relieving cough and asthma; white peony root cooperates cassia twig to harmo­nize the nutrient and defensive qi and cooperates schizandra fruit to prevent over­dispersing of ephedra and cassia twig. All the five herbs act as adjuvans. As the dispatcher herb, Roasted licorice harmonizes all the components.

In the present clinic, this formula is commonly applied to bronchial asthma, chronic bronchitis, senile emphysema, and acute attack of chronic bronchitis due to external cold with internal fluid-retention.
