Bi Yan Pian (NasoPass™, 鼻炎片),
is a Chinese herbal medicine particularly formulated for rhinitis. It is a commonly
recommended herbal remedy by Chinese doctors to help relieve rhinitis and
sinusitis symptoms such as nasal congestion, and stuffy nose with phlegm.
What does it do?
Rhinitis is an irritation and inflammation of the nose. Rhinitis is caused by airborne
irritants, virus, or bacteria which trigger the release of histamine.
Histamine opens the blood vessels, causes swollen membranes, and produce excessive fluids.
Rhinitis is often associated with the common cold, or flu.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), rhinitis is due to the insufficiency of Qi (Chi) energy of the lung and the
subsequently weakened protection of the respiratory track from the foreign
substances like bacteria and virus (toxins). Bi Yan Pian combines multiple Chinese herbs
that act at several aspects to help relieve rhinitis. It disperses wind and expels toxins
to relieve inflammation. Moreover, it dissolves phlegm (especially thick, yellow discharge),
clears discharge and thus opens the nasal passages. Bi Yan Pian can be used for rhinitis, allergy, chronic rhinitis, and sinusitis.
Bi Yan Pian works most effectively with acute rhinitis caused by the common cold or flu.
It usually clears the nasal passages in 5 days.1 It takes longer for chronic
rhinitis. In a study of 27 cases, 22 were found recovered and the other 5 improved.1
Bi Yan Pian also works more effectively with acute sinusitis than chronic sinusitis.
It usually clears the nasal passages in a week.1 It takes longer for chronic
sinusitis. In a study of 91 sinusitis cases, 61 out of 66 acute sinusitis were recovered
(the remaining 5 were improved) whereas 5 out of 25 chronic
sinusitis were recovered (the remaing 20 improved).1
