NOTICE: We are temporarily out of stock of Cinnamon Pearls. We expect to once again have them available for purchase around December 13th.

The design of Cinnamon Pearls is based on the classical remedies Guizhi Tang (Cinnamon Decoction) and Ling Gui Zhu Gan Tang (Poria, Cinnamon Twig, Atractylodis Macrocephalae and Licorice Decoction), the first of which is the “leader of all formulas” in Zhang Zhongjing’s 2nd century herb primer, Shanghan lun (Treatise on Disorders Caused by Cold). Together, they reflect the versatile “Guizhi Fa” (cinnamon method) approach of the Fire Spirit School of Chinese herbalism, and represent a base treatment for all types of chronic disorders involving congestion in the surface layers of the body, as well as decreased movement function in the Spleen, Lung, Heart, Liver, Small Intestine and Bladder networks.

Cinnamon Pearls can therefore be considered a standard way to improve immunity by benefiting microcirculation in vital tissues and preventing fluid congestion and phlegm build-up. At the same time, this remedy is designed to control autoimmune reactions. The added herbs specifically underscore the strong anti-allergenic affect of cinnamon, and furthermore seek to enhance cognitive function by improving gut chemistry. Snake gourd and shepherd’s purse have long been forgotten by Chinese herbalists, but were once common food items associated with the power of the 4th lunar month and balanced Spleen function. They exhibit the unique benefit of cooling an acutely overheated Spleen in autoimmune conditions while not damaging the patient’s overall yang deficient constitution. Cinnamon Pearls is thus a prime remedy for a broad variety of chronic disorders which require both immune system support and mitigation of allergens. It is especially suitable for the treatment of food sensitivities and related cognitive dysfunction.

  • Benefit the taiyin (Spleen/Lung) and taiyang (Small Intestine/Bladder) organ networks by gently stimulating post-natal and pre-natal qi transformation: invigorate the “transformation and transportation” function of the middle burner (Spleen), heal mucous membranes and resolve lymphatic congestion (Lung), increase skin-level surface circulation (Bladder), and boost overall integrity of the intestinal wall (small intestine)
  • Harmonize ying and wei in taiyin (“tuberculinic”) constitutional types (who tend to require improvement of respiratory function and/or digestive function)
  • Warm the center, move Spleen qi and transform cold damp with cinnamon (embodying the “Guizhi Fa” treatment principle of the Fire Spirit School of Chinese herbalism, especially suitable for individuals with damp/phlegm constitutions who do not respond well to ginseng and other tonic/stagnating herbs)
  • Dispel chronic wind and guard against wind invasion
  • Restore the up/down dynamics of the middle burner, eliminate food stagnation and promote digestive comfort
  • Transform chronic or residual damp, phlegm, and/or stagnating water in overall yang deficient constitutions
  • Cool and calm potential over-reactions by a deficient and over-challenged Spleen, especially when auto-immune processes are involved
  • Symptoms of taiyin (Spleen and Lung) yang deficiency: fatigue, weak extremities, poor appetite, shortness of breath, low voice, pale face color, susceptibility to external wind-cold invasions
  • Symptoms of qi counterflow: sensations of uprushing qi
  • Symptoms indicating a disharmony of ying and wei in the taiyang layer: general sensitivity to cold and wind (especially in neck, shoulder, and upper back), decreased spinal integrity, increased permeability of body surface and intestinal boundaries (to pathogens and allergens), decreased immunity, overall tendency to respiratory and food allergies
  • Symptoms of imbalanced digestion initiating brain chemistry imbalances and/or auto-immune processes: chronic digestive issues that are accompanied by fogginess, difficulty focusing, depression, restlessness, head/neck congestion; numbness in Small Intestine channel (i.e. arms falling asleep easily at night)
  • Symptoms of cold phlegm and/or fluid retention: stuffy chest, poor digestion, chronic (productive) cough, bladder pressure/discomfort, edema, dizziness
  • Symptoms of wind cold: late stage of acute cold/flu external wind-cold invasion, especially in elderly and deficient patients; chronic aversion to drafts; allergic constitution
  • Symptoms of Spleen qi inability to keep the blood in the vessels in primarily yang deficient constitutions: phlegm with traces of blood, bleeding gums, frequent bruising, abnormal increase or decrease of blood values due to auto-immune processes
  • Symptoms of Liver yang deficiency: low energy, poor micro-circulation, degenerative changes in liver tissue
  • Pale tongue with tooth marks and white coating; potential for damp tongue coating with bald patches (“mapped coating”)
