Description according to traditional Chinese medicine: This is a modification of the original traditional Chinese herbal mixture BAN XIA HOU PO WAN, adjusted to meet today’s needs. It is actually a natural antidepressant. Depression, sadness, grief, mood swings, hysteria, anxiety, frustration, worry, fear, feeling of tension and discomfort, irritability, irascibility, restraint, etc. – these are all typical signs of stagnating energy Qi along with phlegm TAN, which plague the modern person more than what would be healthy. According to TCM, the spirit resides in the liver and its proper function is manifested by ideas, creativity, projects, live and realized visions, inspiration, planning, determination and self-direction – simply put, the spirit provides for “thought movement”. When the mind, seated in the heart, lacks that “drive” (which using the present-day language could be expressed as determination in effort) due to stagnant Qi, then one feels frustrated, without a sense of life, and loses all the above positive qualities, including loss of sharp-witted look (literally because the spirit is shown among others in the eyes and in case of full health, the expression and sight are healthy). Such a person has “spiritless” thoughts,, talks “spiritless” and behaves as if there is no spirit in them. They slowly get at the intersection of complications they are unable to face. They do not know how to deal with relationships, work, how to organize life – simply they fall into depression. The Qi energy stagnation, which first affects the heart and the lungs first in this case (and liver afterwards), occurs due to excessive emotions. In case of the lungs this is sadness and sorrow, for heart gloominess, tearfulness, melancholia, musing or thoughtfulness. It should be noted, however, that all emotions as a result always cause a stagnation of energy QI ZHI!!! This stagnation is manifested not only by psychological symptoms (mentioned above) but also physical symptoms (below), thus fulfilling the words about the interconnection of the body and the soul, i.e. the so-called psychosomatic medicine (see Mental problems from the point of view of TCM).
The herbal mixture Falling Heart Stone (081) is ideal for all cases (and there are so many of them!) occurring due to emotional imbalance caused by stagnation Qi, changing into internal heat RE, and together with phlegm TAN they block upper and middle burners. Unlike the original classical mixture that did not cool, the herb Dan zhu ye which strongly reduces the internal heat RE, eliminates irritability and anxiety is added to the mixture.

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!
