Description according to traditional Chinese medicine: This is one of the most commonly used Chinese herbal mixtures today, also known under the name DAN ZHI XIAO YAO WAN. It has a very broad range of action and possibilities of use. It is used to level the energy between the liver and the spleen, literally to balance out their relationship. This imbalance is caused in two ways:
1. If liver qi stagnates GAN QI ZHI, it suppresses, as a secondary effect, spleen and stomach qi GAN YU PI XU, which cannot then produce sufficient qi energy and blood QI/XUE XU.

2. If kidney qi is weak PI QI XU and does not produce sufficient blood XUE, liver blood is also weak and stagnating (and after some time changes into internal heat RE); at the same time, liver qi gets in a state relative abundance and suppresses the spleen… Both cases create the feeling of a vicious circle which needs to be cut by harmonizing (adjusting and fine-tuning) both sides of the barricade. This herbal mixture is a variant of the herbal mixture Harmony of Magic Change (code 063), but in comparison provides more strength, feeds the middle burner (spleen and stomach) and provides for lower dispersion of the stagnating liver qi.

Most often this imbalance is manifested by diverse and unclear difficulties such as feeling of pressure and tightening on the chest, pain and pressure under the ribs, pain and tension in the abdomen, hiccups, frequent sighing, thinner stools and nausea. In terms of gynaecology, its symptoms include premenstrual syndrome (breast tension, irritability or depression before menstruation), painful menstruation, irregular menstruation, cysts and fibromas in the breasts, ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids, gynaecological discharge and inflammations, infertility in women, climacteric problems. Other non-specific symptoms also appear, such as fatigue, somnolence, blurred vision, headache, dizziness, etc. In case of internal heat RE (due to emotions, stress, excess of work…), other symptoms appear, including irritability, internal agitation, feeling of internal heat, night sweating, restless sleep, reddish cheeks, red eyes, dry mouth and throat, bitterness in the mouth, etc. Today these problems and diseases are often evaluated by Western doctors as “psychosomatic problems”. For hypertension, for example, it is combined with the herbal mixture Loosening of Strained Bowstring (code 112), for premenstrual syndrome with the herbal mixture Softness of Heavenly Fay (code 052), for problems in the menopause with the herbal mixture Fresh Evening Pagoda (code 185), for glaucoma, optic nerve atrophy, acute retrobulbar neuralgia (inflammation of the optic nerve) or inflammation of the cornea with the herbal mixture Shine of Jade Jewel (code 182), etc.

Each batch of herbs in our products is tested in the accredited laboratory for medicines Phytax in Schlieren, Switzerland, to identify herbs, but also heavy metals (mercury, cadmium, lead, arsenic, and copper), bacteria (E. coli, Salmonella, total number of bacteria), mould, yeasts and aflatoxins. Our company TCM Herbs is the only supplier in the Czech Republic to test each batch of herbs for all herbal tables, among others for 511 types of pesticides (4 groups) because pesticides today become a worldwide problem, especially in products from the so-called Third World. Customers, in the belief that they use herbal preparations, are often, by contrast, “contaminated” with other undesirable “chemicals”.

Each laboratory is different

A laboratory for dietary supplements is obliged to verify only the presence of heavy metals, mould and bacteria – but does not determine the content of pesticides. A certified laboratory for medicines, on the other hand, also identifies individual herbs and in particular tests the entire range of pesticides (at least 500 types and more). There are only a few laboratories like that in the EU and the price is adequately high. It is therefore very important today to know which laboratory tests the dietary supplement and what the tests focus on, if each batch and each herb or just a sample are tested, how many pesticides, how many additives and how many additional binding agents the product contains, etc. – otherwise consumers could be easily deceived and disappointed… (for details read Safety and quality of TCM Herbs products)

The above implies that herbal tablets and drinks of TCM Herbs are, in terms of quantity (concentration of herbs in the mixture is 5 times higher, i.e. that 1 g of a herbal tablet equals 5 g of raw herbs) and quality (absolutely unprecedented testing of each batch), among the best products we can imagine and enjoy in the area of today’s Chinese medicine and natural medicine at all!
