Kan Alembic Herbals are stand-alone formulas based on the observations of venerable Chinese physicians, such as Li Dong-yuen, Zhang Zhong-jing, Hua-to, Sun Si-miao and Zhang Xi-chun. These great healers realized that the power of a great formula is more than the sum total of its ingredients. The proper combination and interaction of herbs, based on the timeless principles of Chinese herbology, has a much greater effect than herbs taken individually or combined only on the basis of their symptomatic effects. Each herb has complex character composed of flavor, thermal influence, channel organ affinities and floating or sinking vector movement. Alembic Herbals captures these elegant ideas and the principles of classic Chinese medical authors, applying their wisdom to address chronic disorders prevalent in our post-industrial society, particularly disorders of immune dysregulation or deficiency.
