Li Zhong Wan - 李中丸

This traditional recipe is now obtainable in its original form in contemporary clinics around the globe. It is a tried and true herbal remedy with centuries of successful results in essential health and well-being.

Originally known as a "Honey Pill", at Empirical Health prefer the term "Honey Pearl". This name reflects the dedication of time and effort invested in crafting a distinctive and valuable pearl, in keeping with the traditions of classical texts.

    Warm the centre and dispel cold, strengthen digestive function.

    Acute gastroenteritis with diarrhoea and/or vomiting
    Frequent nosebleeds or bleeding gums
    Abdominal pain

    Diarrhoea or vomiting due to an external pathogen with underlying Spleen Yang deficiency.
    Gastrointestinal ulcers due to Spleen Yang deficiency.
    Chronic bleeding due to Spleen Yang deficiency.
    General weakness and fatigue due to Spleen Yang deficiency.

    Li Zhong Wan is traditionally prepared as a honey pill. It is a warming, drying and nourishing formula that strengthens Spleen Yang. It suitable for digestive weakness in those with a cold constitution, watery diarrhoea and abdominal pain that is alleviated by heat or pressure.
    Spleen Yang is responsible for maintaining body temperature, digestive function, muscle tone, keeping blood and other fluids within the vessels, and strengthening our immune response.

    Studies suggest that Li Zhong Wan increases the levels of antioxidant enzymes in gastric tissue, suppresses inflammation and may also play a role in ameliorating the gut wall. It can both prevent injury to the gastrointestinal wall and promote healing.
    Li Zhong Wan is gentle on the stomach, as it allows the weakened Spleen Yang to slowly recover. It is well tolerated by patients who may otherwise react poorly to herbal medicines.

    In cases involving bleeding, Li Zhong Wan is appropriate when the blood is pale in colour.
    Other associated signs and symptoms include weak muscle tone, pale complexion, fatigue, poor appetite, and importantly for this formula, an absence of thirst.

    Highest Grade Herbs

    After each individual ingredient has passed our rigourous three tier testing policy, it is then carefully prepared according to the classical texts before forming into our wonderful and unique honey pearls. We are fanatic when it comes to correct species identification, correct dose and administration of these ancient formulas we are reviving for the modern world.

    Traditional Understanding

    Our honey pearls are raw, unique, and based on a 2000 year old preparation method that optimises the absorption of herbal medicine. By making our formulas into Honey Pearls, the active constituents of the ingredients are absorbed slowly and gradually over time, making them highly bioavailable and slow to release. The strength of our formulas is therefore in the delivery. We call this real deal herbalism!
