History is full of instances of endemic viral outbreaks and the usually inadequate response by whatever society was in power at the time. Lack of appropriate medical intervention typically resulted in high mortality rates of the victims and medical illiteracy, lack of hygiene; simple concepts of disease prevention, etc. contributed to ongoing and lingering symptoms on a national scale. Asia in general and China in particular were no exception in terms of historically virulent disease but their response has tended to be somewhat more reasoned and consistent over the millennia.
One of the reasons for the Asian success in the treatment of epidemic upper respiratory conditions in particular is the TCM take on pathogenic viral and bacterial disease causes.
Although generally viewed as ‘wind born damp heat toxins’ the primary concern to ancient physicians was the fact that theses wind toxins were highly mutable and inconsistent in their presentation. It was also understood that the use of very strong medicines to resolve toxins only worked for short periods before the ‘winds changed’ (toxin mutated) and a new set of presenting symptoms occurred. This is not unlike the well documented problem that modern biomedicine has with antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria.
One answer to this dilemma was to compound herbal ‘cocktails’ that contained multiple herbs that performed similar functions, i.e. ‘resolving toxins and clearing damp heat’ by attacking the pathogen with various herbs that perform comparable functions but have other different components. The strategy was and is to ‘confuse’ the virus so that while it is trying to adapt to herbal medicine ‘A’, medicines ‘B, C & D’ are still on the attack. This way the preponderance of the compounded medicine is still working full force and the pathogen cannot keep up with the attack.
This is the treatment strategy guiding my formula Immune Booster. This formula is compounded using a broad array of anti viral, anti biotic and anti microbial herbal medicines like Jin Yin Hua Lonicerae, Lian Qiao Forsythia, Chuan Xin Lian Andrographis and Yu Xing Cao Houttuyniae.
Because Immune Booster is a very aggressive formula and is meant for potentially long term consumption I have included harmonizing and immune strengthening medicines like Gan Cao Licorice, Huang Qi Astragalus, Bai Zhu Atractylodes and He Huan Pi Albizzia. These herbs balance the properties of the compound and to insure against unpleasant side effects that one typically experiences from long term use of pharmaceutical antibiotics and anti-virals.
Immune Booster is intended as a preventative supplemental and is not meant to replace the Covid-19 vaccine.
I strongly urge everyone to receive the Covid-19 vaccine; it works as advertised and is good medicine. However, if one is concerned about post vaccination break through, Immune Booster is my recommendation. This type of herbal compound and its individual components have been researched OO for effects on various strains of influenza and can be used to treat* such bio-medically defined conditions as Zika virus Norovirus, Herpes virus, swine flu H1N1 variant, Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19. During the infamous SARS outbreak 18 years ago, Dr. Deng Tie Tao demonstrated that traditional Chinese medicine treatment proved to be more effective than standard hospital procedures by saving the lives of all patients in his care at the Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou University of TCM.
Yours in good health,

Other research was done at the Committee for Pediatric Health and Herbal Research at the Chinese Academy for Chinese Medicine and Pharmacology. Initial recommendations for the treatment of Covid-19 virus were first published by Wang Yong Yan from the Chinese Academy of Sciences on January 29, 2020. This research has been supplemented by the findings of sixteen independent research institutions as well as field researchers and health care providers on the front lines of the Covid pandemic
