Herbal Formuals for Health and Longevity
By: Lin Zhou, L.Ac., MD (China)

Herbal medicines, proven safe and effective through thousands of years of use, target different areas of disharmony and renew original beauty by enhancing adequate blood flow, moisture, energy and circulation.

Ren Shen Yang Rong Pian is an excellent beauty tonic herbal formula, which works internally to create Chi and restore blood, stimulate circulation, moisturize your skin, tone your muscles, and lift your face.

If you feel emotional stress, anxiety, anger, nervousness, and experience PMS, you may disrupt or block the flow of Chi, and/or blood circulation. We suggest Jia Wei Xiao Yao Pian to cultivate an inner calm that leads to inner and outer beauty.

Smokers, and women experiencing menopause often have dry, dull, thick skin. In Chinese Medicine, anything which irritates the lungs also dries the skin; and women in menopause also have Yin (body fluid) deficiency. Da Bu Yin Pian works wonderfully to provide moisture to body tissue, clean toxins, and improve skin quality.

Sleep is vital for the body to regenerate and rejuvenate. Without proper sleep, your body will deteriorate and age much faster and no miracle food or cosmetic solution can bring the beauty back. Gan Mai Da Zao Pian is an excellent remedy for those who experience not only restless sleep and/or insomnia but also depression, crying spells, night sweats, and mood swings.

If you have hair loss due to stress, hormone irregularities, or chemotherapy, Shou Wu Pian is a famous Chinese herbal formula for hair growth and prevention of premature graying. It nourishes the source of the hair, blood, bone marrow, liver and kidney. In time, your hair and skin can gain new luster.

Start today – move towards a healthier, more beautiful, energized, and younger - looking you!
