I had a cough which did not go away and my friend, Tamy, who runs a chinese medicine shop recommended me to make this soup. It was supposed to nourish lungs, eliminate phlegm and relive coughs (dry cough or wind-heat cough or chronic cough), clear away heat, disperse stagnation, relieve swelling carbuncles and lung and breast tumors.
