Description according to traditional Chinese medicine: This is a modification of the original traditional Chinese herbal mixture XIAO CHAI HU WAN, adjusted to meet today’s needs. This formula is one of the most widely used herbal mixtures in traditional Chinese medicine, used even today in an incredible array of various problems and diseases! And no wonder – the attack of external coldness or external wind against the terrain of internal heat was one of the most common causes of diseases in old China and is the more so today, when each of us has an abundance of internal heat RE inside. According to TCM, this involves heat on the gall bladder pathway and three burners, penetrated by external coldness HAN or wind FENG which acts literally as an elephant in porcelain there. We can imagine this condition as a well heated cottage (internal heat) in the Siberia, where the frosts are really tough (external coldness). In our case the door or windows open up (allowing the coldness to enter), and the heated room literally sucks in the coldness in full and absorbs it (taking into account the physical laws of balancing temperature differences). The harmful essence is “half out, half in” and is not easy to treat because the condition is neither black nor white… As we say: “There’s something fighting in me” or “It’s inside me, I can feel it”. In a typical situation, unclear problems with fever return after the completion of antibiotic treatment (almost regularly 3 to 4 weeks later). The condition in which the harmful substance attacks the first external layers is treated by sweating, i.e. warming up and opening external skin pores. As regards sweat-inducing medicines, both chemical (e.g. Paralen) and Chinese (e.g. Pass of Wind Mountain (004) or Cold of Morning Mist (002)), we eliminate (at least partly) external coldness or wind but thereby increase internal heat. On the contrary, when the harmful substance is deposited in the deeper layers, it must be treated by cooling down the inside and eliminating the harmful substance at the bottom, i.e. through urination and stools. In case of cooling medicines, again both chemical (e.g. antibiotics, chemotherapeutics, corticoids, analgesics) and Chinese (e.g. Birth of the Phoenix (code 009) or Shade of Brocade Veil (code 012)) or Cooling of the Cooking Range (013)), we suppress internal heat but “push” the harmful coldness or wind deeper, into further, deeper layers, where they will bide their time, waiting for an opportunity, and it is certain to come. The more complicated and serious are then the consequences and progress of the disease, often resulting in chronic conditions – e.g. autoimmune diseases (rheumatic diseases, psoriasis, Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, lupus erythematosus, type I diabetes, scleroderma, Sjoegren’s syndrome, multiple sclerosis, Bekhterev’s disease, Addison’s disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, sarcoidosis, but also hypertension, various allergies, asthma, eczema, nail fungi, erysipelas, chronic and recurrent inflammations, etc.). But few people realize later that all these hard-to-treat conditions begin with an “ordinary” attack of external coldness, which comes across the terrain of internal heat and is not properly eliminated (in accordance with the rules of TCM), but is conversely “pushed inside”. That is why this mixture and the timely identification of the stage of the disease in accordance with TCM are so important. Attack by external coldness is divided, in accordance with TCM, into 6 stages through which “external coldness passes one by one and harms the layers”, causing diverse symptoms and diseases.

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!
