Wei qi is the protective energy that helps prevent illness caused by pernicious external influences. When the Wei Qi is deficient, people can get sick more easily, sweat too much or not enough, and develop sores that won’t come to ahead. Also, by strengthening the Wei Qi, this herb reduces excessive sweating, menopausal sweating, and night sweats and promotes suppuration of boils and carbuncles.

Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus) enhances immune system function. It helps prevent colds, influenza, bronchitis, mononucleosis, pneumonia, infection by the Coxsackie B virus (the primary cause of myocarditis), and other forms of external evil. It also helps prevent immunosuppression caused by chemotherapy and has tumor-inhibiting activity.
