The unique design of Earth Pearls reflects the 12th century formula Wuji San (Five Accumulation Powder) from the official Song dynasty pharmacopoeia, Taiping Huimin hejiju fang. It seeks to provide a comprehensive approach to all Earth organ dysfunction, especially the typical situation of Spleen qi deficiency intertwined with dampness, which results in the common symptoms of poor digestion, poor immunity, over-growth by yeast and other pathogenic organisms, and consequential blood deficiency issues. All Chinese herbal traditions tend to pivot around an Earth centered approach to healing, attempting to restore the Spleen’s ability to ascend, move, and transform on one side, and to invigorate the Stomach’s ability to descend, contain, and excrete on the other. The lifting components of Earth Pearls (especially the minister ingredient, Platycodon) make it a prototypical taiyin remedy, strengthening the connection between the Spleen and Lung systems. Its drying components (primarily its imperial ingredient, Red Atractylodes) make it a prototypical remedy that transforms damp, prevents phlegm development, and expels wind. Due to its anti-wind properties, Wuji San was once regarded as the Song dynasty’s main remedy for symptoms that are strikingly similar to what modern society refers to as the flu. It can also be considered for chronic wind disturbances in the skin layer and nervous systems accompanied by chronic digestion issues. Its blood tonic ingredients, furthermore, can treat potential blood deficiency sequelae that tend to follow long-standing qi problems, such as menstrual issues in Spleen deficient women.

  • Warm the center, build Spleen qi and transform cold damp with food-grade herbs (especially suitable for individuals with damp/phlegm constitutions who do not respond well to ginseng and other overly tonic herbs)
  • Remove “Five Accumulations” (wuji) that easily build up in the Earth layer of the body: qi, blood, damp, phlegm, and food
  • Dispel wind and guard against wind invasion, especially in elderly patients or individuals with cold/ deficient constitutions (during the Song and Ming dynasties, Wuji San used to be the primary remedy for flu)
  • Restore the up/down dynamics of the middle burner, eliminate food stagnation, relieve digestive discomfort and abdominal gas/bloating (ancient precursor of popular digestive patents such as Huoxiang Zhengqi San or Curing Pill)
  • Dry chronic dampness and transform cold phlegm; expel excess water weight in overweight individuals
  • Normalize hormonal system in qi-deficient women; regulate menses and prevent formation of pelvic stagnation
  • Expel all types of chronic wind damp afflicting the taiyin networks (Spleen and Lung), including bi syndrome in the arms, shoulders, and lower back
  • All symptoms of qi deficiency: fatigue, weak extremities, tendency to loose stools, poor appetite, shortness of breath, low voice, pale face color, susceptibility to external wind invasion
  • All symptoms of cold damp: abnormal weight gain (especially after childbirth); general sense of heaviness/sluggishness, brain fog; chronic discharge
  • All symptoms of cold phlegm: stuffy chest, poor digestion, chronic cough, dizziness
  • All symptoms of wind cold: external wind invasions with subjective coldness and achiness, especially in elderly and deficient patients; chronic aversion to drafts
  • All symptoms of wind damp: pain, weakness and/or numbness in neck, shoulders, arms, legs, and lower back
  • Pale tongue with tooth marks and white coating
  • All sensations of trapped qi and other signs of chronic digestive weakness, such as bloating, gas, abdominal discomfort, nausea and vomiting, undigested food in stool; tendency to diarrhea, but also constipation in people with low thyroid levels; bladder pressure/ discomfort
  • Menstrual pain, irregular menses, bleeding/spotting, and other signs of pelvic stagnation
