About Tiger Pearls

Tiger Pearls are designed to offer a constitutional approach to chronic bowel stagnation in middle-aged and elderly patients. Generally, TCM doctrine regards bowel stagnation issues as a combination of yangming heat and metal dryness, requiring purgative action with cooling and moistening ingredients, i.e. Maziren Wan (Hemp Seed Pill). However, most patients suffering from chronic bowel stagnation tend to be elderly, thyroid deficient, and exhibit poor bowel motility. Tiger Pearls employ Sun Simiao’s 7th century remedy Wenpi Tang (Warm the Spleen Decoction) to “restart” the system, by embedding the purgative power of rhubarb in an environment of herbs that gently warm the Spleen and the Kidney. The 2nd century remedy Taohe Chengqi Tang (Peach Pit Decoction to Order the Qi) increases blood circulation in the intestinal walls, ensures elimination of cellular waste, and prevents degenerative processes.
