Release Pearls is based on the design of Chai Ge Jieji Tang (Bupleurum and Kudzu Decoction to Release the Muscle Layer), which first appeared in the 15th century medical source book Six Texts on Disorders Caused by Cold (Shanghan liushu). The unorthodox design of the original formula features a clinically highly effective combination of wind dispersing herbs that simultaneously enter all three yang channels—shaoyang, yangming and taiyang. For the last five centuries, the remedy has been used to treat aggressive epidemic infections, especially when symptoms of headaches and/or neck stiffness are present. Since climate change has precipitated an expansion of bizarre tropical diseases, signs of heat, stagnation and toxicity of the brain have become more common in the US and Europe. Release Pearls intends to provide options for these types of acute disorders when Western epidemiology has little to offer. By combining the original remedy with herbs used in the treatment of Gu syndrome, moreover, Release Pearls can also be used in the treatment of individuals who frequently develop severe discomfort in the head/neck; i.e., pain in the head/neck in a Gu syndrome patient suffering from an acute wind-cold invasion or similar external pathogenic influences.

  • Alleviate acute head and neck pain by relieving muscle tension, dispersing wind and cooling heat; reverse pathological qi flow; moisten Heart and Kidney yin to control autoimmune reactions.
  • General signs of wind cold affliction with rapid proliferation of heat signs (decreasing aversion to cold, gradually increasing fever, no sweat, dry nose and throat, restlessness and sleep issues); external pathogenic influence afflicting all three yang channel systems (taiyang, shaoyang, yangming)
  • Body pain, especially in head and neck region (headaches generally accompanied by pain behind and around the eyes) 
  • Acute flare-up of chronic “brain Gu” syndrome (especially if accompanied by pain in head and neck region, nausea/poor appetite and emotional distress)
  • Sudden loss of vision, aversion to light
  • Sudden loss of hearing, ringing in the ears
  • Tongue with thin yellow coating
  • Pulse floating and tight, potentially surging
