Spring Wind Herbs, Inc. was founded by Andrew Ellis in 1992 as a local herb shop for the benefit of nearby practitioners in El Cerrito, California. We began to sell bulk herbs to practitioners in 1993 and at about the same time started our line of ointments, cremes, salves, and liniments.

We noticed the room for improvement in the quality and purity of herbs that were being offered to practitioners in the US. Over the following years, we searched out the highest grade bulk herbs and made them available to the practitioner community. Spring Wind long ago brought the issue of the use of incorrect species of herbs to the forefront and was the first company to introduce a lot-based testing system for a comprehensive list of pesticide residues. In 2005, Spring Wind began to locate sources of organic herbs and now carries a large and growing selection of USDA NOP Certified Organic herbs.

In 2019 Spring Wind began to sell Spring Wind brand concentrated granules. These granules are made with the quality of herbs practitioners have come to expect of Spring Wind and are tested for 278 pesticides. Only a non-detected reading on pesticide residues is allowed for our granules. The granules are also tested for e coli, salmonella, mold, heavy metals and, where appropriate, aflatoxins. Thorough and transparent Certificates of Analysis are posted on our web site for each item.

As practitioners, our principles have been unchanging. We procure herbs and produce products we would use for our families and provide the kind of friendly and helpful service we would expect from our friends.

 Atractylodis macrocephalae Rhizoma
白朮

Premium

While Bai Zhu is known for its ability to supplement the spleen, fortify the stomach, dry damp and transform phlegm it is not often thought of for treating constipation. 魏龙骧 (Wei Long-Xiang) writes that he has had great success using large doses of Bai Zhu for this purpose. In light cases he uses 30-60 grams and in severe cases up to 150 grams per day. Of course, one must treat according to the pattern presenting. Bai Zhu can support the spleen yang’s functions of transporting and transforming but root causes such as yin, blood or yang vacuity must also be addressed. For example, for dry-stool constipation Sheng Di Huang (Untreated Rehmannia) can be included and for blood vacuity, one can include Dang Gui. Often a small dose of Sheng Ma is included in these formulas to promote upward transport of the clear and thus encourage downward flow of turbid material. This application of Bai Zhu is not appropriate for cases of binding depression of liver qi.
