Why XIAO YAO WAN (Free and Easy Pills) Works
In the eyes of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), loss, memory of loss, fear of loss, and other stresses can cause us to tighten in the chest. All constraint causes QI stagnation. Emotional constraint is known as Liver QI Stagnation, because the organ-system known as the Liver is most sensitive to our emotions and to the emotional environment that we are exposed to.
Liver QI Stagnation is often experienced as feeling numb or feeling dead. Liver QI Stagnation is almost always diagnosed, in the West, as depression, and is considered to be a mental or brain problem. Those of us who practice Eastern medicine know that depression or Liver QI Stagnation is, first and foremost, a chest problem, and relief can be readily obtained by 'Opening And Freeing The Qi Of The Chest'. Upper-body exercise, forceful crying or wailing, chest massage, breathing exercise, acupuncture, and herbal medicine can all help free the QI of the chest. There are several herbal formulas known to do this; the best known is XIAO YAO SAN, named variously as HSIAO YAO WAN, Free and Easy Pills, Relaxed Wanderer, and Rambling powder. For the last thousand years, Free and Easy Pills have been the go-to formula for Liver QI Stagnation. It utilizes the combination of CHAI HU and BO HE to free the Liver QI in the chest.
We believe that Dr. Shen's Free & Easy Pills (Xiao Yao Wan) are more effective than similar products imported from China, because Dr. Shen uses premium quality export grade herbs, rather than the B Grade herbs that are normally used to make pills in China. Dr. Shen also imports their herbs whole, rather than as powder, so the herbs can be identified as being the correct species and grade. The Dr. Shen brand laboratory tests each batch of raw materials in the USA before tableting. Herbs are tested for heavy metals, mold, and harmful bacteria. Tablets are further tested for dissolvability. Dr. Shen's Free & Easy Pills (Xiao Yao Wan) are then coated with a thin vegetable glaze for easy swallowing.
