Our Approach

A Simple Approach

EACH OF OUR PATENT HERBAL FORMULAS IS DESIGNED WITH THESE SIMPLE, CLASSICAL PRINCIPLES OF CHINESE HERBALISM

  • Emphasis on the alchemical integrity of classical formulas
  • Focus on the synergistic “fusion” effect of herb combining
  • Integrating the deepest classical level of understanding organ network physiology
  • Attention to inherent yin-yang balance in formula design
  • Flexible, experience based modification approach that addresses the clinical problems of our day
  • Preservation of effective herbal approaches that are in danger of getting lost
  • Highest standards of ingredient purity
  • Promotion of traditional alchemical growing techniques
  • Utilization of modern production techniques for the specific purpose of holistic full-spectrum ingredient extraction

Integrity in Sourcing & Preparation


WE ARE AN INGREDIENTS DRIVEN COMPANY

We have invested years of research in the procurement and manufacturing of the herbs in our formulas: appropriate locale (terroir), traditional growing and harvesting techniques, and precise processing according to the medical classics.

Purity, Quality & Potency


OUR FORMULAS AND SINGLE HERBS ARE FREE OF
PHARMACEUTICALS, DYES, YEASTS, AND ADDED SUGARS

All ingredients are independently tested in a US laboratory. These rigorous testing procedures ensure the safety of all products, both at the source in China and during manufacturing in the United States.

Building Relationships


WE CHAMPION DIRECTLY TRADED INGREDIENTS

Knowing the source of the raw herbs that comprise our formulas and maintaining relationships with the providers of our herbs is of great importance to Classical Pearls. We support small farmers, wild crafters, and herb distributors in China and elsewhere in Asia who understand our mission of providing the highest quality medicinal ingredients, while promoting environmental stewardship.

Classical Formula Architecture


OUR FORMULAS HAVE EVOLVED FROM THE CLASSICAL MEDICAL TEXTS

Classical Pearls formulas are consistent with the principles elucidated in the classical texts of Chinese medicine, and based on three decades of research and clinical experience. All formulas in the Legacy Series are designed by Heiner Fruehauf, PhD, LAc, according to ancient principles of herb combining as codified in classical medical texts and relevant clinical lineages that have emerged from them.

Our Commitment


WE ARE COMMITTED TO THE CLINICAL ROOTS OF CHINESE MEDICINE

Classical Pearls is a part of an international movement that seeks to honor and restore the classical origins of Chinese medicine. Chinese medicine is a highly sophisticated science and deeply spiritual art form. Herbal formulation is based on simple foundational principles that are often ignored or misunderstood in the construct of modern TCM education. With Classical Pearls’ formulas and the core educational concepts behind them, the goal is to preserve the true clinical power and efficacy of Chinese herbal medicine.

To relieve the suffering of one’s time,
there is no greater path than medicine.
Within it, nothing is more effective than the prescription of herbs.
