Bai Hu Tang (White Tiger) is well known for the treatment of heat stroke, sunstroke or any other Excess Heat pattern. In the Chinese culture, “White Tiger” is regarded as the cooling God that is responsible for bringing cool and dry weather to the autumn. This herbal formula is named White Tiger because of its powerful actions of clearing Heat as the universe becomes nice and cool as soon as the fall arrives and the hot summer is left behind.

White Tiger originates from Shang Han Za Bing Lun (Treatise on Cold-Induced Disorders and Miscellaneous Disease), written by Zhang Zhongjing in 220 AD. It is composed of 4 ingredients: Shi Gao (Gypsum), Zhi Mu (Anemarrhena), Gan Cao (Glycyrrhiza) and Jing Mi (Oryza). Its actions include clearing Heat and producing Body Fluids. It is effective for the treatment of any Interior Excess Heat (high fever, excessive thirst, red and dry tongue, surging and rapid pulse). The dosage in horses and cattle is 15-60 g twice daily and 0.5 g per 10 lbs of body weight twice daily for dogs.
