- Gu Syndrome
- External Pathogens
Lurking or latent pathogens are typically viral infections that have not been properly resolved, or that were too strong for the body to expel, and have gone deeper into the body causing varied symptoms. The herbs and essential oils used in this bath help to push out pathogens that have lodged themselves in to the tissue and nerves of the body.
Chinese medicine has long recognized the disease pattern of latent pathogens. Generally the cause is stated as "External" pathogens that were not correctly treated initially and were allowed to travel from the exterior to the interior resulting in organ damage and pain. This is call "Gu Syndrome" in Chinese medical theory and must be addressed by expelling the pathogen before a patient can begin to improve.
Directions for use: To use as a hand and/or foot soak, add one tablespoon of herb mixture in a plastic water basin filled with warm water. A full tub bath can also be used by adding two tablespoons of herb mixture to warm full bath. For best results use 1 to 3 times daily for 15-30 minutes.
Note: Natural wax has been added to the formula to render it semisolid for better shipping. You must melt the mixture in a cup of hot water before adding to your warm water tub or bath. Full tub baths are messy, so hand and foot baths are preferred. Be careful getting out of the tub or basin as the herb mixture contains oils and will be slippery.
