Coronavirus TCM formulas – order here

Order our special formulas to treat symptoms of COVID-19*

At Yin Yang Dermatology, we have a full raw herb pharmacy, as well as several cooking and packing machines to make vacuum-sealed pouches of teas.

Our clinic isn’t typically set up to prepare custom formulas for other practitioners. But because our pharmacy is fully stocked, and we have several cooking machines that extract teas into vacuum-sealed pouches, we are making a number of ready-to-ship formulas* available to Chinese medicine practitioners only.

Learn more about our commitment to vacuum-sealed pouches of tea.

*Our COVID-19 formulas are based on reporting by Dr. John Chen, Pharm.D., Ph.D., OMD., L.Ac., of published protocols developed by the Hubei Provincial Hospital of TCM & Wuhan Union Hospital.

All ingredients are listed in the descriptions. In some instances, we’ve needed to adapt the recommended formula because of herb availability (in the U.S and/or in our pharmacy). In these cases, we have noted the substitutions below the list of herbs.

These formulas should be used together with western medicine as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.
