Dr. Melinda Lei has been using herb formulas to help patients with coronavirus ( COVID-19 ). Why Dr.Lei's herb formulas are effective for you? Because they will be prescripted for individuals.

Early intervention of traditional Chinese medicine has shown great advantages in preventing and treating COVID19 in China. Traditional Chinese medicine has played an active role in reducing patients' clinical symptoms with COVID19, shortening the treatment cycle, reducing the "gravity rate" and increasing the cure rate. In the different stages and clinical syndromes of COVID19, the herb formulas are also different, which fully reflects the core idea of ​​TCM syndrome differentiation and treatment. Based on the pathogenic mechanism of COVID19 "cold and damp disease poisoning and pathogenic qi that cause lung failure", and combined with the infectious pathogens of western medicine on the basis of the cold and damp syndrome of traditional Chinese medicine, the "human coronavirus pneumonia cold and wet The mouse model of the disease-symptom combination of the disease-invasion syndrome" became the first animal model of disease-symptom combination similar to the pathological changes of new coronary pneumonia. This animal model was used to verify the efficacy of the series of prescriptions recommended in the new coronary pneumonia diagnosis and treatment plan. It was found that these drugs can significantly reduce lung inflammatory damage in model mice, reduce the viral load and inflammatory factor content in lung tissue, and increase the proportion of immune cells in peripheral blood (According to the research of the Chinese Medical Sciences Institute)
