Po Chai Pills / / Stomach Pain Medicine
Traditionally, Po Chai pills treat what Traditional Chinese Medicine calls damp-heat in the intestines. They were primarily used for diarrhea in climates that were hot and humid, but were also used when over-indulgence in rich food and alcohol was the cause. In modern times, the pills can be used for travelers’ diarrhea, acute gastroenteritis, summer flu, and hangover. Some people also use it for food poisoning, although only for mild cases.
