Description according to traditional Chinese medicine: This is a modification of the original traditional Chinese herbal mixture CELULITIS WAN, adjusted to meet today’s needs. Cellulite affects a growing number of women these days, especially at a young age, and is slowly becoming a civilization disease. From the point of view of Western medicine, it is not a disease as such but rather an aesthetic handicap; Chinese medicine, on the other hand, considers it a sign of imbalance in the organism. It is a manifestation of insufficient energy on the kidney and spleen pathway, along with stagnating qi energy QI ZHI and moisture SHI in the lower parts of the body (in the lower burner XIA JIAO). Romantically we could call this condition “little, weak fire with wet wood added into it…” According to TCM, the kidney pathway SHEN is the seat of the inborn fire of life MING MEN (YANG) which heats the body to its “operating temperature”. When this fire dwindles, there is naturally no evaporation of water which then stagnates in the organism. The kidney yang – SHEN YANG – heats up and supplies energy to the spleen PI QI, which transforms food and air into the beneficial qi energy QI and blood XUE. In case of a lack of qi energy QI XU and blood our body literally calls for and desires food which is rich in energy and calories (to replenish energy quickly) but is not particularly suitable and excessively burdens the spleen pathway PI. These are mostly fast pick-me-up products such as sweets, bakery products, chocolate, black coffee, tonic drinks, alcohol, etc.). However, these foodstuffs prospectively burden the spleen pathway PI even more and add more moisture. Since the spleen pathway PI feeds the muscles from the waist down, this moisture SHI from the weakened spleen PI QI XU (along with water stagnation SHUI due to insufficient kidney yang SHEN YANG XU) accumulates in these body parts. Therefore, the treatment of cellulite focuses on stirring up the stagnating qi energy QI ZHI and removal of moisture SHI from the lower parts of the body and the strengthening of kidneys SHEN and the spleen PI. It is particularly important to comply with proper nutrition, in particular to fully avoid black coffee, spirits and sweets, and on the contrary to include meals which strengthen the spleen and kidneys, such as cereal porridges, millet and buckwheat porridge, wholemeal rice, mushrooms and any cooked vegetables, in particular pumpkins and carrots.

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!
