Xiao Chai Hu Pian (Wan) TCM Uses

Xiao Chai Hu Tang treats Shao Yang or Lesser Yang Stage Disorders, indicating that an external evil (pathogen) has penetrated deeper into the body, producing symptoms of both superficial and deeper conditions. An example of this is a common cold that has not been properly purged from the surface. The pathogen then sinks deeper into the body, becoming stuck between the interior and exterior. This "half-interior, half-exterior" condition often effects the Shao Yang Channels of the Liver/ Gall Bladder and Pericardium/ San Jiao Channels.
