Yupingfeng San has the mystery to prevent and cure SARS
Yupingfeng is scattered from the Danxi Heart Method by Zhu Danxi of the Yuan Dynasty. It consists of Astragalus, Atractylodes and Fangfeng. Astragalus and Atractylodes have the effects of enhancing immunity and regulating immunity.
Infectious atypical pneumonia has the characteristics of strong contagion, rapid transmission, rapid onset, fierce onset, and critical illness, etc., which is roughly equivalent to the category of “blast” in Chinese medicine.
In the history of China, the Han, Tang, Yuan, Ming, and Qing dynasties all had excessively large infectious diseases.
Traditional Chinese medicine has accumulated a wealth of experience in the fight against infectious diseases, and has monographs on the world, such as Zhang Zhongjing’s Treatise on Febrile Diseases in the Han Dynasty, Sun Siyi’s The Thousand Gold Essentials in the Tang Dynasty, and Zhu Danxi’s Danxi Heart Method in the Yuan DynastyThe Plague Theory by Wu Youke of the Ming Dynasty and the Warm and Heat Theory by Ye Tianshi of the Qing Dynasty have positive guiding significance for the prevention of infectious diseases today.
For viral diseases, traditional Chinese medicine has its own advantages in history. Most of the epidemic diseases in previous generations were controlled by traditional Chinese medicine.
At present, there is no active and effective method for preventing and treating SARS in the world.
There were different views on whether Chinese medicine should be involved in the prevention and treatment of SARS. However, Guangdong Province, which is inferior to Hong Kong in terms of medical conditions, has adopted a combination of traditional Chinese and western medicine to prevent and treat SARS.People have increased confidence in the role of Chinese medicine in this regard.
A comprehensive survey of the SARS prevention and treatment methods provided by Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Sichuan and other places generally includes astragalus, atractylodes and wind prevention of Yupingfeng San, affirming the role of Yupingfeng in preventing SARS.
Fuzheng Guben “Yupingfeng San” Brief introduction Yuyufengfeng is from “Danxi Heart Method” of Zhu Danxi in the Yuan Dynasty. It is composed of Astragalus, Atractylodes, and Wind-proof. Astragalus and Atractylodes have the effects of immune enhancement and immune regulation.
For the reduction of white blood cells caused by chemotherapy and radiotherapy, Baizhu decoction has an increasing effect.
Both windproof water extract and decoction can significantly increase the phagocytic percentage and phagocytic index of mouse macrophages.
Its water extract can also counteract the inhibitory effect of hydrocortisone on the phagocytic function of mouse macrophages, allowing it to recover and exceed normal levels while increasing spleen weight.
However, there are some data that windbreak cannot enhance the phagocytosis of macrophages.
Immune regulation, righteousness and internal evils cannot be dried up The immune defense function proposed by modern immunology is similar to that of traditional Chinese medicine’s “righteousness” against external evils.
Improving the body’s immune function is of great significance for the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases.
The theory of traditional Chinese medicine holds that “the righteousness cannot be done in the presence of righteousness;
From the experience of combining traditional Chinese and western medicine in the prevention and treatment of SARS in the previous stage, it can be seen that with the improvement of human immunity after taking Chinese medicine, the human body can take a more active position in the fight against the evils of the disease.
Among the “SARS” death patients, the elderly are frail or accompanied by other chronic diseases. The majority of these patients have poor immune function and need “righting up”.
Modern pharmacological studies have found that Yupingfeng Powder has good immune regulation and synergistic effects.
On the reticuloendothelial system (RES), Yupingfeng San has a significant effect.
The experimental results show that Yupingfeng Powder can not only significantly enhance the phagocytic ability of peritoneal macrophages in normal mice, but also significantly activate the inhibition of phagocytosis of peritoneal macrophages caused by cyclophosphamide.
Clearance of RES is inhibited after acute wind chills.
Taking Yupingfengsan in advance can prevent the inhibition of RES function caused by wind chills.
Yupingfeng powder can also effectively prevent the suppression of lymphocyte immune function.
Subacute wind chills can cause thymus atrophy and spleen weight loss in mice. Taking Yupingfeng Powder in advance can prevent wind chill stimulus-induced mouse thymus atrophy and spleen weight loss, thereby effectively preventing the suppression of lymphocyte immune function.
The mice were randomly divided into a control group and a Yupingfeng oral liquid group, and the Yupingfeng oral liquid group was administered with a drug solution to each rat at 0.
5ml, 2 times a day for 3 consecutive days. Observation for 5-7 days after stopping gavage. The results showed that the average weight of thymus in the Yupingfeng oral liquid group was significantly higher than that in the control group, and the average weight of the spleen in the two groups was not significant.Sexual difference.
The immunomodulatory effect of Yupingfeng Powder has also been clinically confirmed.
From the intelligent Chinese medicine database of Shanghai Traditional Chinese Medicine Innovation Research Center, there were 662 reports of Yupingfengsan and its extended prescriptions (including prescriptions of the three traditional Chinese medicines of Astragalus, Atractylodes and Fangfeng) for the treatment of various clinical diseases, of which it was used to treat colds., Cough, rhinitis, bronchitis, asthma and other respiratory diseases were 158.
A total of 410 articles about the clinical application of Yupingfeng San were retrieved from the China Biomedical Disc, of which respiratory diseases and viral diseases accounted for a large proportion.
Anti-suppression virus, the pathogen of SARS is a variant of coronavirus.
Coronavirus is one of the main pathogens of the common cold in adults. It often causes upper respiratory tract infections and is epidemic in winter and spring.
The antiviral effect of Yupingfengsan has been experimentally confirmed.
Whether it is resistant to the SARS coronavirus needs further research.
Yupingfeng Powder is widely used in the prevention and treatment of viral diseases. From the search data of the intelligent Chinese medicine database, there are a considerable number of reports covering Yupingfeng Powder for the treatment of viral influenza, rhinitis, myocarditis, shingles and chicken pox.
