The design of Lightning Pearls reflects a unique approach to the difficult and recalcitrant problem of chronic inflammatory disease. It is based on the Qing dynasty remedy Jiajian Su He Tang (Perilla and Mint Decoction Modified), and represents a time-honored solution for the important clinical phenomenon of “Brain Gu Syndrome" - a desigantion which includes many of modern societies treatment-resistant conditions which center around an overall inflammatory process in the nervous system. Lightning Pearls aims to not only counteract pathogens, but also to treat terrain issues associated with various deficiencies in the patient’s qi, yin, and blood. Lightning Pearls can be considered to be a more constitutional and long-term version of the Fever School’s flagship remedy Yin Qiao San (Honeysuckle and Forsythia Powder), and is thus also suitable to treat swollen glands in individuals afflicted by external wind invasions, or for preventive use during air travel.

  • Nourish terrain and soothe nervous system in patients with “Brain Gu Syndrome” using anti-microbial tonic herbs
  • Anti-pathogenic action, especially in the nervous system and brain
  • Reduce inflammation in the nervous system; increase micro- circulation in the brain
  • Reduce pain
  • Chronic debilitating joint and muscle pain (cyclical); permanent state of exhaustion
  • Chronic low-grade symptoms that mimic the flu; chronic headaches (cyclical), brain fog
  • Restlessness, nervousness, inability to relax; sensation of “possession” (“I want my life back”)
  • Grimy and stubborn tongue coating; weak (yet occasionally aggravated or tight) pulse
