Wines for Treating External Invasion & Damage by Wind

The wines in this chapter all treat the common cold, flu, and coughs in their initial stage accompanying the common cold. Because wine is upwardly and outwardly dispersing and resolves the exterior and because these conditions are located in the exterior according to tcm theory, these conditions can often be treated by medicinal wines no matter whether they are categorized as wind cold or wind heat. Also, because these conditions tend to come on rapidly, one can make such a wine beforehand and store it indefinitely until it is needed. Thus, one or more of these wines are useful to keep in one's home medicine closet.
