Description according to traditional Chinese medicine: As usual in TCM, the menstrual cycle can be described and visualized as a process naturally occurring in the nature. Let us imagine a reservoir which is supplied with water by a river. The thickness of the wall corresponds to the size of the reservoir (womb). Once a month its capacity gradually fills up to the optimum level and then it is necessary to raise the sluice gates and release some water, otherwise the dam could rupture or water overflow, causing floods (stagnation of qi energy QI ZHI). The opposite condition is equally harmful, where the spring (essence of the kidneys SHEN JING) does not provide sufficient water (lack of blood XUE XU) and the reservoir dries up (lack of blood and subsequent block YU XUE XU). Likewise, it dries up in case of excessive heat (heat in the blood RE XUE). Water should be liquid in the reservoir, otherwise it will freeze up (coldness HAN in the womb). If there are impurities in the water, they may clog the discharge openings (blood blocks YU XUE). This all implies that complete interplay of all stakeholders is necessary – a good source of quality water, reasonable reservoir capacity, good climatic conditions, timely opening of sluice gates, sufficient strength of the walls… This all can be best set using the single herbal mixture Sleeping Beauty’s Awakening (code 050), which acts on all 4 stages of the menstrual cycle as it strengthens the essence of the kidneys SHEN JING, and feeds and stirs up blood XUE, and stirs up the stagnating qi energy of the liver GAN QI ZHI.

Ingredients (1 g is made from 5 g herbs):
- Shui hua mu jing (Vitext agnus castus)
- Dang gui (Chinese Angelica Root)

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!
