Zhong Gan Ling: This traditional Chinese medicine is selected for more severe conditions such as quick onset of high fevers with sore throats and coughing, swollen lymph nodes, aching limbs and headaches. This formula is used during the flu, not as a preventive formula.  Formulas to use at the onset of the flu are Yin Chiao or Gan Mao Ling.  Huo Xiang Zheng Qi Wan: Primarily prescribed for stomach flus with digestive difficulties of diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, flatulence, nausea and for chills, fever and headaches.
Zhong gan ling is for the deeper level(s) with fever, like yang ming in TCM terms. 
Zhong Gan Ling is a Chinese herbal formula used for severe common cold or flu, with fever from wind heat.  Isatis and oldenlandia have been added to this formula to augment its ability to clear heat toxins.   When SARS, 
Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome was spreading in 2003, Zhong Gan Ling was one of the main formulas which was used.

4 The Teapills are combined synergist, to provide optimum effectiveness. In very general terms, most of the Teapills utilize 5 to 20 herbs in one formula.  The percentages of an herb in a Teapill vary from .5% to 95%.  Teapills are unique.
