Why Dr. Shen's Yin Chiao Works Better than Any Other Yin Chiao


Considering the number of users in Asia, and the length of time it's been in use, Yin Chiao is possibly the WORLD'S best selling cold remedy of all time, yet in the Western world it's almost a secret.

Dr Shen's Yin Chiao, the best by any measure

Dr. Shen uses only premium-quality export-grade herbs and imports their herbs whole, rather than as powder, so the herbs can be identified as being the correct species and grade.  They are the only YC manufacturer that does this.

Each batch of raw materials is tested both in China and in the USA. Herbs are tested for heavy metals, mold, and harmful bacteria.  Tablets are further tested for dissolvability.  The pills are then coated with a thin vegetable glaze for easy swallowing.


When to Use Yin Chiao 

Yinchiao is used at the first sign of a cold or during the first two days of Wind-Cold or Wind-Heat condition.

Also used when exposed, or likely to be exposed to Wind pathogen.

Particularly effective for colds beginning in the throat.

TCM Functions of Yin Chiao

  • Clears Wind-Heat
  • Disperses Wind-Cold 
  • Cleans Toxins

Yin Chiao Safety

Generally regarded as safe for anyone.

Yin Chiao is made for acute conditions, and is not designed for long-term immune enhancement.  For a daily supplement appropriate for long term immune enhancements, try Jade Shield Pills

TCM is powerful and reliable, but it can be complex. Self-diagnosis and self-treatment aren't recommended for chronic, recurring, or serious illness. Best to Find a Local Practitioner or Start an E-mail Consultation now.


How Much Yin Chiao Do I Take? YC Dosage and Use

Take 5-6 tablets immediately at the first sign of Wind-Cold.

Then take 3-4 tablets every four hours for the rest of the day.

For Exposure: Take every four hours when exposed to a Wind Evil pathogen.


Yin Chiao Suggestions:

Keep a dozen tablets in your car, purse, or pocket during cold season. Take promptly.

Begin taking tablets a half hour before entering airports, schools, or crowded public facilities.

Course of Use:

The course of treatment is a minimum of one day and a maximum of one week per episode.

Bed rest during the hours of administration, if possible, is a plus.

Practitioner Notes:

This classic formula is widely popular because of its ability to treat upper burner disorders without injury to the middle burner.
