Herbal Mistakes

Huan Qi (astragalus) or Ren Shen (ginseng) Qi boosting herbs can aid linger pathogens in the body and act as a steroid to them. They can also prevent healthy water metabolism in a constitutionally damp body.

Herbs that are too heat-clearing like Yin Qiao San (anti-inflammatory or antiviral) can cause dysbiosis and cold and damp in the gut forming a condition called “hidden ice” we want to aromatically transform dampness instead.

Herbs such as Ma Huang this can cause the condition to turn more hot and dry
