XII. TCM Classification Therapy to Improve Curative Efficacy

Classification and Stage

COVID-19 can be divided into early, middle, critical and recovery stages. At the early

heat." The middle stage is characterized by "intermittent cold and heat." The critical
stage is characterized by "internal block of epidemic toxin." The recovery stage is
characterized by "qi deficiency in lung-spleen." The disease initially belongs to wet
lung syndrome. Due to fever, both intermittent cold and heat treatments are
recommended. In the middle stage, cold, dampness, and heat coexist, belonging to
"cold-heat mixture" in terms of TCM. Both cold and heat therapy should be
considered. According to the theory of TCM, heat should be treated with cold drugs. But
cold drugs impair Yang and lead to a cold spleen and stomach and cold-heat mixture in
the middle-Jiao. Therefore, in this stage both cold and heat therapies should be
considered. Because cold-heat symptoms are commonly seen in COVID-19 patients, the
cold-heat therapy is better than other approaches.
