Description according to traditional Chinese medicine: This herbal mixture is one of the most commonly used mixtures in TCM against pain in the joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons, both acute and chronic. According to Chinese medicine these pains are among BI syndromes, where the word BI can be translated as a block – and “pain is where a block is, and a block is where pain is”, as old Chinese masters say. This imaginary energy block BI can be caused by blocked blood YU XUE, stagnating qi energy QI ZHI, harmful wind FENG, coldness HAN, moisture SHI or heat RE or by moist heat SHI/RE – all these factors result in an interruption of the smooth flow of qi energy QI and blood XUE on the pathways JING and connections LUO in the organism, ultimately creating the effect of a “clogged gutter”. According to TCM every pain is defined as the “tissue’s hunger for energy” and if the specific area is not provided sufficient qi energy QI and blood XUE, it is not properly fed and supplied and the consequences arrive soon – from diverse pains (acute, dull, rigid, weather-dependent), swelling, tingling, numbness, insensitivity, cramps, limited motion… Such diseases also include all rheumatic diseases, muscle and joint pains all over the body (fibromyalgia, sciatica, lumbago, disc prolapse…), pains in tendons and ligaments (entesopathy, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, sore Achilles tendons…).

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!
