Ilex 15 is an antitoxin wind-dispelling formula based on three popular patent remedies for treating acute ailments, such as common cold and influenza: Yin Qiao Jie du Pian (see Pine Mountain), Gan mao Ling, and Zhong Gan Ling (Effective Remedy for Common Cold). Ilex 15 has been used as a substitute for the Chinese patents for more than a decade, with excellent reports. Some individuals have utilized Ilex 15, at moderate dosage (about 6-9 tablets per day) during the winter season when colds and flu are most common, for the purpose of preventing illness. This application, using a detoxification approach, differs from use of another formula, Jade Screen Tablets, which emphasizes tonification of qi to protect against illness. For treating an infection, the most effective use of Ilex 15 is at the first sign of symptoms, such as scratchy throat or sniffles, in which case it may interrupt the development of the disease, with symptoms alleviated within a day or so by taking a large dosage (about 5-6 tablets each time) several times.
