We have recently returned from Rothenburg where we attended the TCM Kongress. Although this time we were not exhibiting but supporting our new team members - China Purmed!
.
.
It is our pleasure to announce that China Purmed is now part of the Phoenix family! China Purmed has been a longstanding business partner and friend to the company and we’re really excited to work with them. They are a well-respected supplier of acupuncture needles and TCM supplies situated in Germany.
.
.
As Peter Waltz (top left) built his career as a TCM practitioners, he saw an opportunity to provide better quality TCM products to the German market and so he sought his sister Brigitte Antoniou’s (top centre) help and started China Purmed over 20 years ago.
.
.
This year marks a new chapter with China Purmed as a parent company. Through our resources in supply chain, marketing and education, we’ll be modernising and refining China Purmed for continued success. Together with Peter, Brigitte and the team, we hope to improve the standards and availability of Chinese medicine!

Are you aware of the differences between concentrated granules and raw herb powders? There are pros and cons for both, including solubility, digestibility and concentration. 🌿🍵💊
.
.
Concentrated granules are simply consumed like instant coffee – just add hot water and stir! The herbs are decocted traditionally and then the concentrated extracts are drawn out to be made into granules. What’s more, concentrated granules are relatively easy to be made into tablets or encapsulated for an even more convenient way to take herbal medicine. As granules are concentrated, less product is needed to create a herbal tea.
.
.
Raw herb powders are simply raw herbs ground up into a fine powder. These powders were traditionally rolled into tea pills which were popular alternatives to raw herbs. Ready-made tea pills are now prohibited for use in the UK and across many countries in Europe due to wide criticism for contamination with heavy metals such as lead, mercury and arsenic. One major concern for the use of raw herb powders is that they are not traditionally decocted to kill off bacteria and microbial contamination poses a risk to your patients.
.
.
So which is best? We have compared both granules and powders on our blog. If you would like to know which is best for you and your patients, visit news.phoenixmd.co.uk to find out more.

Last month, our Managing Director George took us for a (very!) late Chinese New Year dinner. 🍜 As we welcomed the Year of the Dog,🐕 we reflected on the past, present and future. Whether it’s the team in sales, marketing, accounting or warehouse, we are the cogs that keep Phoenix going and although we may be a small team, we are also a great team! 👍 We spend our days ensuring our customers receive uncompromisable quality, service and value and once in a while, it’s nice to unwind with lovely food – and drink! 🥂Our aim is to continue to grow as a team and a company and we hope you all share this journey with us 🤗👏🙌 #dreamteam #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #colleagues #tcm #acupuncture #goodfoodgoodcompany #yearofthedog #chinesemedicine #chinesenewyear
Question Time: which Dang Gui is the best quality, A or B?
_______________
Answer: A! On the left we have raw Dang Gui straight from the ground. As you can see it's medium/dark brown, long and has thin tails. How could this possibly produce the Dang Gui in picture B 🤔? Well, by using sulphur treatment of course! Many people perceive the creamy white Dang Gui as being more pure and therefore better quality, but really it's quite the opposite. 
________________
💀 Sulphur treatment of Dang Gui 💀: .
1. Manufacturers will initially soak the Dang Gui in water for two days. Sadly, the active ingredient Ferulic Acid will actually leach out into the water.
.
2. Next, the herb is steamed in sulphur for 4 days to soften the herb and also to increase the size by 70%! Think of all the extra profits they can earn 😯! This process also makes the Dang Gui a bright, white colour! During this process, a large majority of the essential oils are removed too, reducing the efficacy of the final product drastically.
.
3. Lastly, the herb is compressed and sliced to achieve a large surface area. In 1kg of Dang Gui there will be a will be 17.29g of sulphur!!! 🤢 Watch out for adverse reactions and unwanted side effects!
______________
Our Dang Gui in picture A is simply harvested, washed, sliced and thoroughly dried. ☺️ No nasties.

Today is #WorldSleepDay😴. We all know that getting those 8 hours of sleep is vital for a healthy lifestyle. Not getting the recommended amount of sleep can affect fertility, reaction time and cardiovascular health. If you suffer from one of the 100 diagnosed sleep disorders, have you ever thought about trying #acupuncture? Around 30% of the UK adult population will have a degree of insomnia, whether it is difficulty actually falling asleep or staying that way but acupuncture may be the answer to the nightmare.
.
.
Acupuncture has proven to reduce anxiety in patients, resulting in increased nighttime melatonin production and total sleep time. Patients who have acupuncture treatments for insomnia fall asleep faster, were less aroused at night, and were less stressed. Acupuncture can also relieve patients suffering from chronic pain, which is also a common contributor to sleeplessness.
.
.
Acupuncture helps insomnia by making your blood more oxygenated, which helps your body heal so your body can work with your mind – helping you drop off easier! Patients may find that having acupuncture for insomnia may also benefit other aliments too. If you suffer from #insomnia, we recommended consulting your local acupuncturist. Or if you are an acupuncturist looking for effective, safe and quality needles to treat patients with sleeplessness, please visit phoenixmd.co.uk

Unfortunately some TCM suppliers within the UK are supplying practitioners with substitute or ‘fake’ herbs. These herbs usually have extremely different results and effects but have come into circulation as they are easier to source and usually much cheaper – like Chai Hu.
.
.
As Chai Hu is so commonly used, the supply of the herb is decreasing, however, the demand isn’t. It is widely favoured for treating discomfort in the chest, dispelling cold, vomiting and low moods. Authentic Chai Hu is grown in North China and is light brown in colour. Sourcing the genuine herb has become more difficult, resulting in increased prices.
.
.
However, Chai Hu from the South is much more readily available and for many years, it has been a much cheaper alternative. As well as price, the appearance of the herb can be a clear indicator as to whether or not the herb is authentic. South Chai Hu is much darker in colour and can be bent easily as it is much softer. It is used to treat stomach discomfort and diarrhea. Due to ever increasing demand, an even cheaper alternative has come into circulation. Tibetan Chai Hu is thicker than the original and almost black in colour. It is also toxic and very much prohibited and caused a fatality in 1973.
.
.
At Phoenix, our aim is to pioneer the development of Chinese medicine and to accomplish this; we ensure our quality is unprecedented. We can assure all customers, practitioners and patients that our herbs are 100% genuine and of the highest quality. If you would like to know more about substitute herbs or our quality assurance, please visit news.phoenixmd.co.uk or call 01245 350822
