Amber Pearls is a Ming dynasty prescription designed to stabilize Spleen function with bland food grade herbs. It is especially suitable for children with weak digestive function manifesting in poor appetite, picky eating habits, poor immune function and other signs of Spleen qi deficiency. For adults, it should be added to Earth Pearls or Vitality Pearls for conditions where the Spleen’s ability to lift qi and contain fluids has become compromised. In addition, this remedy can serve as a base remedy for the entire taiyin system, addressing chronic respiratory (Hand Taiyin Lung) weakness by gently tonifying the Foot Taiyin Spleen system and preventing the development of dampness and phlegm. Most importantly, Amber Pearls can be considered for brain chemistry problems and a wide variety of cognitive issues in children, because (1) earth can contain fire, (2) the Spleen channel feeds into the Heart, and (3) several ingredients can stabilize and calm the Heart directly.
