Acute respiratory conditions are commonly seen in the clinic, and Chinese herbal formulas offer particularly effective treatment. The common cold that progresses into cough occurs frequently, and in this recording, we will delineate seven distinct stages of cough. Available Chinese herbal formulas will be discussed for each stage, with a focus on the rationale of the component ingredients. Besides cold and cough, we will also discuss fever, infectious throat conditions and ear infections. The same formulas are used for infants, children, and adults, with different dosing considerations. The recording offers clinical tips for managing cases, which will be of interest for advanced herbal practitioners as well as those just beginning to explore herbal medicine.
