Formula Rationale

Coptis Purge Fire is intended to treat intense, localized, excess inflammation in individuals with
strong constitutions. The formula is a combination of three traditional formulas: Coptis and Scute
Combination, Rehmannia and Akebia Combination, and Gentiana Combination (Long Dan Xie
Gan Tang). These, along with forsythia (lian qiao), lophatherum (dan zhu ye), phellodendron
(huang bai), anemarrhena (zhi mu), gardenia (zhi zi) and sophora (ku shen) have strong antibacterial
and in some cases, anti-viral effects. Bupleurum (chai hu) invigorates liver qi and is used for
prolonged infections. Tang kuei (dang gui) invigorates the blood and alleviates pain. Plantago
seed (che qian zi) and alisma (ze xie) facilitate the body’s removal of toxins. Inflammation of the
excess type tends to produce relatively large amounts of fluids, which may appear as discharge or
pus. Coptis Purge Fire contains sophora (ku shen) and akebia (mu tong), which clear heat and dry
