They didn’t have computers way back when but the Chinese knew all about tired eyes, reading scrolls by candlelight and all. This is a pretty special set of herbs that “benefit the eyes”. This formula is for over use of the eyes causing dryness. It won’t necessarily make your eyesight better in terms of 20/20 vision or for particular eye diseases. The lead herb in this formula is the famous Gou Qi Zi (Gou Ji berries).

This formula treats the accumulation of water.
This formula is attributed to the famous Sun Si Miao and is recorded in the Secret Text of Extraordinarily Effective Beneficial Formulas From Across the Seas. Nice title for a book, don’t you think?!
Sun Si Miao is one the “great, great etc… grandads of Chinese Medicine and died around 680 AD. There is a quote attributed to him that goes somewhat like this “A Great doctor shouldn’t pay attention to status, wealth or age of the patient. He shouldn’t care whether the particular person is attractive or unattractive, an enemy or friend, a Chinese or a foreigner, or finally, if he is uneducated or educated. He should meet everyone on an equal basis. He should always act as if the patient were one of his close relatives.”

Hi Doug,Thank you so much for your assistance with this. I am so excited and thrilled with your company and its products. Your understanding, prompt response and resolving of this matter make Eagle Herbs a place I look forward to continuing doing business with.I became aware of Chinese herbs this summer through our acupuncturist and mostly used Ba Zheng San through another manufacturer. I started researching Chinese medicine on my own and found your website. I was immediately drawn to it. It is a plethora of information. When I ran out of the BZS, I decided to try your herbs and am so happy I did. The formula was better and worked with my system better. I expanded to two other formulas with you and again the results are amazing. I shared the information with my acupuncturist so she try your products and refer her clients as well.Doug, you program is bar none. The service is quick and professional with great customer service. I just spent time this morning with a friend of mine from China going through your website and helping her and her husband get started with you. There is so much information to help educate anyone looking to better their health.Thank you again!
Eagleherbs.com thinks of itself as Chinese Medicinal Herbs. Yet much of the inspiration for our business and treating models is Kampo, what the Japanese call their herbal medicine.
Japanese and Chinese physicians (like all good doctors) will pay particular attention to the chief complaints, affect of the patient and other signs and symptoms. For all Asian medicines, the tongue and pulses are usually examined. With these and other diagnostic tools, a determination of the disease will be made.
In Kampo, the signs and symptoms, along with the disease determine the formula. The disease usually follows the complaint, which the patient will tell you by their symptoms. After the disease is determined then we can refine them according to a further look at the symptoms. These follow some principles of Chinese medicine like hot or cold, interior or exterior, in other words: yin or yang. That’s why we have the hot or not page.
However, in the Chinese modern method particular importance is given to the Zhengduan (診斷 zhěnduàn- pronounced more or less like jun dwan) or a diagnostic pattern. This is unique to Chinese Medicine and must be determined by a highly trained clinical doctor. Because this diagnosis is so particular it would make little sense for us to sell herbs directly to consumers based on “Spleen Qi deficiency” or “wood over-acting on earth” (to name a few common patterns).
For that reason, we have devised an on-line model that seems to work well for many people who have ordered from us.
The Japanese first incorporated Chinese Medicine way way back when.
From Wiki: Kampō medicine (漢方医学 Kanpō igaku?), alternatively shortened as just Kanpō (漢方?), is the study and further development of Chinese Herbal Medicine in Japan. The fundamental principles of Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) came to Japan between the 7th and 9th centuries. Since then, the Japanese have created their own unique system of diagnosis and therapy. Japanese traditional medicine uses most of the Chinese therapies including acupuncture and moxibustion, but Kampō in its present-day sense is primarily concerned with the study of herbs.
Recently, the Japanese realized that they could integrate Kampo medicine into their health system and they did. However, only MD’s can now prescribe herbs and traditional herbalists have been left out. A shame, I believe.
This is from the Journal of International Medical Research written by F Yu, T Takahashi, J Moriya, K Kawaura, J Yamakawa, K Kusaka, et al
After World War II Kampo medicine, ushered in a new age in Japan. In 1967, the health insurance authorities began reimbursement for four Kampo drug formulae prescribed by doctors. Reimbursement was available for 147 formulae in 1987 and about 400 formulae in 2000. Thereafter, Kampo spread steadily and rapidly.
Here is rather long article concerning the complexities of evaluating Kampo (and all Chinese medicine in the modern age).Evidence-based Reconstruction of Kampo Medicine: Part-III—How Should Kampo be Evaluated?
Katsutoshi TerasawaKampo agents, being herbal preparations, cannot only be regarded as ‘drugs’, but can also be seen as special ‘foods’, as exemplified by the famous Kampo slogan, ‘Foods and drugs, from the same origin’.
