Helps Support Balance After A Sense of Spinning

Pressure builds up in your ear. Even though you’re firmly rooted on the ground, to your ears, it feels like you’re scuba diving on the ocean floor.

As if that’s not enough, you begin to hear an agonizing ringing or buzzing sound. Nobody else notices the sound except for you. It’s a disturbing, alienating feeling. Mercifully, the mysterious horrible sounds fade away. Your sense of balance makes you feel like you’ve been drinking alcohol heavily.

If you’re seeking an herbal remedy, BalanceEZ is used for the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) syndrome that includes lightheadedness.

Containing 14 botanicals, BalanceEZ is based on a formula that’s been used successfully since the 13th century in China.

Classic formula resolves internal Wind and Phlegm

The TCM syndrome BalanceEZ takes care of is called Wind-Phlegm invading upward (风痰上扰证), presenting with a sensation of loss of balance, an urge to throw up, along with a whitish and greasy tongue coating and a slippery pulse.

In TCM theory, spinning is indicative of Wind. Wind is generated from the Liver. As a physical wind can shake a tree, Wind in the body can cause spinning and imbalance.

Similarly, an urge to throw up is indicative of phlegm and dampness. When dampness accumulates, it produces phlegm, which prevents "clear Yang" (the essences: Qi, Blood, Yin, Yang, etc.) or nutrients from ascending and nourishing the head. As a result, a disturbance in balance may occur.

BalanceEZ is uniquely formulated to both extinguish Internal Wind and clear Phlegm. It remains one of the most widely dispensed Chinese herbal medicines for these symptoms to this date.

How does BalanceEZ work?

BalanceEZ contains the same ingredients as the classic formula invented in 1249, Ban Xia Bai Zhu Tian Ma Tang, albeit with slight differences in formula composition, thereby improving upon the original formula.

Many of the herbs in BalanceEZ clear phlegm and dampness. The herbs with these actions are Zhi Ban Xia (Pinellia Rhizome); Cang Zhu (Rhizoma Atractylodis), Ze Xie (Alisma Rhizome), Fu Ling (Poria), and Gan Jiang (Dried Ginger).

Zhi Ban Xia (aka ‘Ban Xia’) is the primary namesake herb that dissolves phlegm. As such, it harmonizes the stomach, which may resolve stomach discomforts.

Tian Ma (Gastrodia Rhizome), another namesake herb in the formula, primarily calms the Liver extinguishes wind. Zhi Ban Xia and Tian Ma together serves the main purpose of removing Wind-Phlegm.

Bai Zhu (Atractylodes Rhizome), also a namesake herb, and Fu Ling act together to strengthen the Spleen and dry dampness. This is to address the root cause of phlegm generation in the Spleen.

Huang Qi (Astragalus Root) and Ren Shen (Ginseng Root) are two well known herbs that tonify Qi.

Mai Ya (Barley Sprouts), Shen Qu (Medicated Leaven), and Chen Pi (Dried Tangerine Peel) also strengthen the Spleen, assist digestion and promote Qi movement.

Huang Bo, aka Huang Bai (Amur Cork Tree Bark) clears heat and dries dampness, purging fire and removing vaporized heat. It also balances the drying property of Cang Zhu.

Finally, the last herb in the formula, Gan Cao (Licorice Root) both tonifies the Spleen and harmonizes the action of other herbs in the formula.
