Historical Use Of Chinese Herbs for Foreign Invaders

There's a very famous Chinese herbal classical book, called Shang Han Lun, which was published during the Chinese Han Dynasty (200-219 AD), in detail,  it describes symptoms that arise from infestations of roundworms (this literature is over over 2000 years old and it's the oldest documented source of an organized herbal system).

The Shang Han Lun  provides Chinese herbalists the knowledge in which to support one's innate ability to naturally expel roundworms. In  the case of humans, infestation  occurs in the gall bladder or intestines, and in canines the worms will nest in the heart and or the intestines. Chinese herbal theory has been using herbs to expel roundworms for thousands of years.

Once upon a time there lived a very famous practitioner whose name was  Dr. Ke Qi,  he did a really good job of  metaphorically describing how herbs work with respect to parasites;  

"When roundworms encounter sour tastes, they are calmed. When they encounter acridity they are spent;  when they encounter bitterness they are purged"  (he is referring to the flavor of the different herbs)

When a dog (or person) has an invasion of worms  Chinese theory for this term is  "Chong Ji". The treatment principle is as follows; "Expel worms and  disperse accumulations". Translation; This means that we use herbs to stimulate your dog's natural immune power so as to maintain an internal environment that is free of foreign invaders.

Heartworm Support Formula Instructions:


A) Dogs should take the formula for 120 days and, then test for the baby heartworms (called microfilaria). This is a blood smear test called the KNOTT test.

We would expect a negative test. If you don't received a negative test, please call us. 

Once tested negative for the baby heartworms, and only after16 more weeks you should then have your dog take an adult worm ANTIGEN test, either by the vet, or buy a Heartworm Home Rapid Response Test, you can find that on Amazon. You want to have a negative test after 32 weeks.  Please call us if this is not the case.

B) Dogs experiencing coughing and fatigue should also be taking the Heart & Lung Qi Support Formula to help move blood through the vessels to help subdue extreme coughing which helps them to be more comfortable.

#2) The Dosage on the bottle is the minimum use so for all dogs we suggest that until you get a negative baby heartworm test (microfillria test and it’s the called Knotts test)  you should be giving your dog the following until then:            

Weight             Daily Total Bottles/16 weeks 
 Bottles/24 weeks
0-10 lbs 1/2 teaspoon ( 2 x's a day) 3 3
11-30 lbs 3/4 teaspoon (2 x's a day) 6 6
31-60 lbs 1 teaspoons (2 x's a day) 8 9
61-90 lbs & up 1.5  teaspoons (2 x's a day) 10 12

#3) This is not a fast process so you must adhere to the program and understand that one month will not work so it’s important to stay consistent. The negative baby heartworm test (called microfilaria a.k.a. Knotts test) will tell you how the progress is going.  Once you receive a negative baby heartworm test you may reduce the herbs to the usage listed on the bottle for the rest of the time.

FOR Heartworm PREVENTION ONLY: Dosage would be given 7 days ON followed by 3 weeks OFF each month and repeat this protocol -- 7 days ON with 3 weeks OFF each month.
