Herbal Formula Spotlight 
Autumn Rain Teapills 
(Sha Shen Mai Men Dong Wan)  


Fall brings cooler temperatures to the valley, however, there is still a dryness in the air.  This dryness can cause thirst, dry or sore throat, dry cough with blood, hoarse voice, dry nasal passages and nosebleeds, cracked lips, rough skin, dry stools, and even irritability.  Autumn Rain Teapills nourishes lung and stomach yin and moistens bodily fluids preventing any of the above indications from presenting.  So, don't be dry, resolve that fall dryness with a natural moistening formula.            


To see if Autumn Rain Teapills would be beneficial to you, call PIHMA's clinic today at (602) 274-1885 for an herbal consultation. Because everyone is different, herbal products are sold only after consultation with an herbal intern. 


Chinese Medicine May Lead to New Cancer Treatment 
A team of experts from Peking University in China and Cardiff University's School of Medicine examined cancer patient outcomes when combining traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine.  Traditional Chinese herbal formula Yangzheng Xiaoji used either alone or with conventional therapies such as Chemotherapy, has been shown to be beneficial to the patient as it stops the spread of cancer cells in the body.  Could this be the key to developing new treatments for cancer patients?  Learn more
