Caution and contraindications: All the herbs in this remedy are cold in nature and they may therefore injure the Spleen with prolonged use. However, this will not happen as the remedy is given only for a short time by definition. As the remedy is specific for the Wei Level of an invasion of exterior Wind-Heat, the remedy is given only for a few days: after that, either the child has expelled the Wind and recovered or the pathogenic factor has penetrated into the Interior in which case the child will need a different remedy.
LIQUID CONCENTRATES 8:1
Complete extraction liquid concentrates accentuate the nourishing herbal essence of the formula while preserving the five flavors and essential oils. Our liquid concentrates feature high herbal activity and increased extractable solids without compromising herbal function. This 8:1 concentration strength yields a very potent herbal liquid with a more viscous consistency. Products are manufactured using a 'low heat' multi-phase process consisting of:
Our herbal staff concluded that the traditional five flavors and the formula function, which includes the qi dynamic, are often compromised during most extraction processes;especially when herbs are processed to produce a product which yields high "solids in solution." In other words, it is not the amount of solids by themselves that is important, but the activity of those solids.
This research has led to the development of an extraction process which produces our highly refined herbal products. Our proprietary methodology preserves the essential oils that awaken the senses and retain the delicate balance of the traditional five flavors which influence the qi dynamic necessary to produce the specific energetic activity of each formula. When increased nourishing essence for supplementation is required, our phase processing and temperature controls allow for maximizing the extractable solids without compromising any herbal activity.
