We have created modern versions of Classic Chinese Herbal Formulas used effectively to treat disease for hundreds of years. Through scientific research and clinical experience, these herbal formulas have been found to be effective yet gentle with few to no side effects unlike western pharmaceuticals. We welcome questions and are available for herbal consults, or see your local acupuncturist.

What It Is:
“Eliminate -Nourish”: This formula works to resolve root issues of constipation which are usually Yin & Blood deficiency, lack of fluids and qi deficiency.

How It Works:
This is a two stage process that should be followed to achieve regular bowel movements by first treating the branch, or the symptom of constipation using a strong purgative formula. Then the root cause of constipation is addressed using a second, strong nourishing formula. The root cause is usually due to deficiency heat in the large intestine, blood deficiency and a lack of proper peristalsis.

The specific nature of this process creates an experience that is unique to each individual. It is used to teach the body to do it’s natural bowel movement job.  This process will make sense by following the directions and will help the user not to become dependant on an outside source to have bowel movements.

*It’s not enough to stimulate a great bowel movement. For long term health without dependence on medicine or supplements, you must build the blood, yin and qi of the body so that natural healthy bowel movements occur.
End the need for supplements by helping your body restore what it needs at a root level. That is the goal!

Choose “NOURISH” or “RELAXATIVE”:  Choose the root formula best for you based on symptoms:

“Nourish” Symptoms:
chronic dry skin, brittle nails, thirst, dry stools, split ends.
“Relaxative” Symptoms:
irritability, depression, bloating, tightness in ribs, frustration, bursts of anger, sighing, rabbit pellet stools.

Important Directions from Clinical Experience:
Part 1: -Take “Poo!” formula
-Divide “Poo” laxative formula into daily dose: Start with a dose after lunch and a dose after dinner. (See body weight chart for dose size).
-It is a powerful formula so best to have some food in your stomach.
-If the next morning you do not have a complete bowel movement, repeat the process this evening increasing dose by 2 capsules. Increase by 2 caps per day until desired results are achieved.

Part 2-
-Once you have a complete bowel movement 3 days in a row, you can start slowly decreasing dose of “Poo!”.
*Use in conjunction with “Nourish” formula or “Relaxative” formula for long term better health.
**See bullets above or go to our website for help choosing which formula is best for you.

Part 3-
Take “Nourish” formula 3x daily for 3-6 weeks as soon as you start “Poo!” formula, to address the underlying cause of constipation which is deficiency of moisture, blood, and heat in the bowels. If bowel movements stop during the 3-6 weeks, simply add “Poo” back in for one or two nights as needed.

The Goal: Healthy bowel movements without supplements!
-For long term independence from medicine and supplements, build the blood, yin and qi of the body so that natural healthy bowel movements occur. 

Theory of Treatment:
Treating Constipation is a two part process.
First- treat the branch, or the symptoms using a strong purgative, laxative formula -“Poo!”.
Second- treat the root cause by using a second, root cause, symptom specific formula like “Relaxative” or “Nourish”.

Follow instructions above.  The reason for the detailed instructions is so that the root issue is addressed which will prevent dependency on herbs for future bowel movements.

Ingredients:  All Natural Herbs: Sheng He Shou Wu (Fleeceflower Polygoni Multiflori), Xuan Shen (Black Figwort Root Scrophularia), Mai Men Dong (Lily Turf Root Ophiopogonis), Sheng Di Huang (Foxglove Root Rehmanniae), Da Huang (Rhubarb Root)

Sheng He Shou Wu increases peristalsis, moistens the intestines and promotes bowel movements. It nourishes yin and blood especially in patients recovering from chronic illness, elderly or post-partum women. Xuan Shen clears heat and nourishes yin. With Sheng Di Huang it clears heat in the ying (nutritive) level and supports the flourishing of yin. When Mai Men Dong is added with Xuan Shen and Sheng Di Huang, the yin is further supported. The body fluids become more moistened allowing yin and blood to flourish. 

Xuan shen (Radix Scrophulariae / Black Figwort Root) clears heat in the ying (nutritive) level and nourishes yin. It is used for conditions of excess heat accompanied by drying up of body fluids.

The gentle nature of herbs necessitates larger doses; think of them as healing foods.
