Shen Qi Wan - 腎氣丸

Kidney Qi Pill - Shen Qi Wan

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.

Chronic renal disease or urinary dysfunction

Lower back weakness or pain due to Kidney Yang deficiency.
Male reproductive disorders due to Kidney Yang and Kidney Qi deficiency.
Urinary disorders or other signs of dysfunctional water metabolism due to Kidney Qi and Yang deficiency.

Kidney Qi and Yang are the root source of Yang (warmth and functional energy) for the entire body and are responsible for the distribution and metabolism of water throughout the body. Deficiency can manifest as either urinary retention or excessive flow, unquenchable thirst, and weak or cold sensation in the lower body. Due to the Kidney’s relationship with other organs such as the Lung and Liver, shortness of breath and tinnitus can also result, as well as weak bones.

Shen Qi Wan has been shown to improve urinary function and quality of life in patients with benign prostate hypertrophy, potentially through favourably regulating hormone levels. It may assist with adrenal insufficiency through its influence on pituitary adrenocorticotropic hormone and be useful in conjunction with or during withdrawal from corticosteroid medication.
Shen Qi Wan was also found to reduce the level of HbA1c, enhancing glycaemic control in type 2 diabetics.

Hypertonicity of the rectus abdominus in the lower abdomen is a common finding when Shen Qi Wan is indicated.
Shen Qi Wan is suitable for a wide variety of geriatric conditions
Shen Qi Wan may be useful in conjunction with Prednisolone to reduce side effects, or to assist with withdrawal from this medication.

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!
