The comprehensive design of Ease Pearls is an attempt to combine the qi moving, detoxifying and emotional harmonizing benefits of the two most famous and effective Bupleurum formulas in Chinese medicine. It unites the 3rd century remedy Xiao Chaihu Tang (Minor Bupleurum Decoction) and the 12th century remedy Xiaoyao San (Ease Powder), and is further enhanced by the drying and descending effect of Banxia Houpo Tang (Pinellia and Magnolia Bark Decoction) and the moistening effect of Shengmai San (Generate the Pulse Powder). Both base remedies address congestion of the shaoyang system (Gallbladder and Triple Warmer), with a particular focus on treating and preventing all problems that can be classified as “wood over-controlling earth.” In general, Ease Pearls can be used as a crucial base or add-on remedy whenever the use of bupleurum is required. It is particularly suitable for all pathologies that can be classified with the terms qi stagnation or shaoyang disorder.
