Prescription commentary

This herbal medicine is used when a cold is complicated, especially when accompanied by digestive symptoms such as loss of appetite and nausea.

It is suitable for those with moderate physical strength, discomfort in the area from the side of the stomach to the solar plexus, and a bitter taste in the mouth.

In Chinese medicine, it is believed that when the gastrointestinal tract is not functioning properly, the body does not produce "qi," the life energy, and the resistance to disease is reduced.

There are various causes of poor gastrointestinal function, but one of the main causes is the accumulation of excess heat in the stomach and intestines.

In Chinese medicine, there is a specific concept of "the five organs (Liver, Heart, Spleen, Lung, and Kidney).

Of these, the "Liver" is responsible for controlling "Qi" and "Blood.

Therefore, when the "Liver" is sluggish, "Qi" and "Blood" do not circulate properly in the body, and excess heat is stored in the stomach and intestines.

"Koshibako-tou" improves loss of appetite, stomachache, nausea, and gastritis when a cold is complicated by regulating the condition of the "liver" and normalizing the function of the stomach and intestines.
