Abstract

<p>We report the efficacy of a low dose administration of gyokuheifusan (GHS) (Yu Ping Feng San in Chinese) powder for the deficiency of protective qi.GHS powder was given to 30 patients complaining of some of symptoms such as recurrent colds, allergic rhinitis, and sweating disorders. Three herbs ; Astragali Radix, Atractylodis Macrocephalae Rhizoma, and Saposhnikoviae Radix were grinded and mixed to make GHS powder. Six months or 1 year after the oral administration of GHS, we evaluated the efficacy of GHS by the scoring of symptomatic improvement. Twenty-four out of 30 patients (80.0%) treated with GHS had symptomatic improvement (highly effective in 19 patients and effective in 5 patients). GHS was particularly highly effective against recurrent colds and allergic rhinitis. Sixteen out of 17 patients with recurrent colds treated with GHS had symptomatic improvement (highly effective in 12 patients and effective in 4 patients). Ten out of 13 patients with allergic rhinitis treated with GHS had symptomatic improvement (highly effective in 6 patients and effective in 4 patients). In 19 out of 24 patients (79.2%) successfully treated with GHS, GHS requirement per day was only 0.7-1.4 g. Taking into consideration that those three herbs have been available under the Japanese National Health Insurance System, the data suggest that low dose administration of GHS powder has potential as highly effective and cost-effective formula for providing health-promoting benefit to patients with lack of protective qi.</p>
