honey is the only binding agent
no artificial fillers or ingredients
herbs harvested at the height of potency

100% Natural

Our herbal supplements are made with natural honey as the binder. Honey can support the lungs, intestine, spleen, and stomach; It works as a natural preservative with antibacterial and healing properties. Unlike other herbal supplement companies that use starch, magnesium, and other chemical substances as binders for their supplements, we only use 100% honey. We also avoid using vegetable capsules because they require chemical components to form the capsule shape.

Peak Harvest Herbs

The herbs in our herbal pill blends are harvested at the height of their potency and they are substantially more expensive than less potent herbs that were harvested in the pre-or post-season, but in our view, there is no substitute for premium quality.

Ann's Story

Here's my story.

If you feel skeptical or unsure of Chinese herbal remedies, I could hardly blame you. I wasn't a believer either until my daughter grew very sick and my father (the 4th generation herbalist) helped her get better with herbs.

I was born into a family of herbalists. My father, my grandfather, my great-grandfather, great-great grandfather were all herbalists. I represent the 5th generation in this long lineage dating back to Imperial China.

When I was three or four years old, I started to learn herbal songs and how to identify herbs. As I got older, I was taught how to process the herbs while working in my dad’s clinic in Vietnam. After we immigrated to the United States, my dad asked me if I wanted to pursue a career in TCM as an herbalist or acupuncturist. I said, “No, just leave me alone, Dad. I will find something I enjoy doing for work.” So, he left me alone to find my own way.

I wanted nothing to do with herbal medicine until I gave birth to my second daughter, Catherine, who was born with severe gastric reflux. When Catherine was 10 days old, I had to take her to the ER for IV injections into her little hand because she couldn’t keep milk down. Besides vomiting, she also was having diarrhea. Catherine was losing nutrition from both ends, so her tiny body was shrinking. At that time my dad warned me, “She needs to be treated with herbal medicine, otherwise she will have seizures later on.” I didn’t fully understand what my dad was talking about, so I ignored him.

My daughter got so ill that she could only take half an ounce of milk per hour. Before feeding her, I would use a syringe and shoot Zantac into her mouth to lessen the vomiting. As time passed, she needed milk more often, and consequently more Zantac. By the time Catherine was 8 months old, she needed to be fed and medicated 11 times a day.

I could hardly sleep, eat, shower or rest. Even at night, I had to drape my daughter over my shoulder for her to sleep. If I put Catherine down, she would vomit. I barely had time to squeeze in a 5-minute shower once or twice a week for myself. I was exhausted, but what could I do? I had to care for my daughter and do my best to survive each day with the hope that she would get better or at the very least her condition would not worsen.

Catherine had to wear a turtleneck with two sweaters along with a baby cap and scarf to be outside during the heat of summer, even when temperatures were 100 plus degrees. If I didn’t cover her up, she would have a runny nose, cough, and non stop vomiting. How will she be able to go to school or anywhere with air conditioning?

One day we went to a Vietnamese pho restaurant. After I set Catherine down into the high-chair, I turned around and adjusted my chair. Then I heard a woman’s shout, “Look at her!” I looked in the direction she pointed. It was Catherine…her eyes rolled up and her entire body stiff and shaking with fluid coming out of her mouth. Someone said, “Squeeze some lemon into her mouth.” I did it without hesitating and Catherine’s body relaxed.

We rushed her to the ER. For 3 days she was in the NICU where they monitored her brain. The doctors told me I was lucky because my daughter’s seizure didn’t last for more than 3 minutes which would have damaged her brain. After that I always carried a piece of lemon because I had no idea when my baby girl might have another seizure.

The seizures started to come weekly, so the doctor prescribed anti-seizure medication. Catherine wasn’t even 1 year of age, and already she was taking Zantac 11 times plus anti-seizure medicine 3 times a day. It was nearly impossible to administer the anti-seizure medicine because whenever I took out the syringe, she would cry and start vomiting.

I took Catherine to see a specialist at CHOC. I asked, “Doctor, have you ever seen any infant with this condition get well?” The doctor replied, “It depends. Some will grow out of it, but some don’t. If they don’t, then they will have to take medication for the rest of their life.”

“What do you mean by grow out of it?” The doctor explained that Catherine might get better by herself as she got older.

My mind was racing. “All this time the prescribed medication has not been treating her stomach?” The doctor said, “No, it only helps to guide the food down, so she won’t vomit it back up. That’s why you have to give it to her before the feeding.”

“Well, what if she doesn’t grow out of it?” In that case, Catherine will be dependent upon medication for the rest of her life. The doctor further informed me that she too was born with gastro reflux and is still taking medicine for the condition.

Her statement was like lightning in my brain. If the doctor can’t even treat herself for gastro reflux, how can she help my daughter? Seeing the futility of my path, I turned to my dad for help.

My dad advised me to stop all western drugs and to give her an herbal prescription 3 times a day. Administering medicine 3 times instead of 14 times a day to Catherine was a godsend to me. Even though it sounded too good to be true, I figured that I could still give Zantac to Catherine if she didn’t get better or continued to vomit.

After one month of herbs 3 times a day, Catherine vomited less and less. To test Catherine, I let her cry to see if she would vomit. She didn’t, so I knew she was getting better. After another month of herbal medicine, Catherine was able to wear less clothing without getting a runny nose, coughing, or vomiting. After 3 months of herbal formulas, she stopped having episodes of gastro reflux and seizure. Catherine will enjoy a normal, healthy life.

Because of Catherine’s dramatic recovery, I was sold on Chinese medicine and asked my dad to treat me. I fainted very easily, especially during the winter. After a few months of herbal formulas, I have never fainted again.

I started to have time to think and tried to understand why a piece of lemon helps to relax the muscles and stop a seizure. Lemon is a common citrus, yet it has magical powers that we don’t understand and underestimate. I wanted to learn more and find answers, so I decided to go to China which has a long history of herbal medicine. I went to TCM schools in China and Hong Kong and worked in the TCM hospitals to learn from the best herbal doctors in the world.

When I was there, I knew one day I would want to become an herbalist, but how can I get a steady supply of high-quality herbs. My dad and I backpacked across China and visited many farmlands. We interviewed farmers to grow herbs for us. Our products are used with the highest quality herbs that have been harvested at the height of their potency. They are substantially more expensive than less potent herbs that were harvested in the pre- or post-season.

After I came back to the United State, I worked with my dad and learned from his experiences and studied the formulas that our ancestors passed down. What I have been through helped me to understand the importance of health. Without health, don’t even talk about career, beauty, education, freedom, etc. I now have worked with many families who have suffered as I have. Their endearing appreciation drives me to work harder.

Our namesake "Silkie" is a Chinese breed of chicken that is well known for its calm and friendly temperament. They are gentle and caring and make wonderful mothers. A Silkie loves nothing more than brooding a cluster of eggs, whether they are hers or not, even if they are "duck eggs". We share the same outlook and care for our clients the same way we care for our own family.

Understanding Malformations of the Female Reproductive System: A Comprehensive Guide


The female reproductive system is complex and vital for fertility and overall health. However, it is susceptible to various irregularities and malformations that can affect its function and cause symptoms. This comprehensive guide aims to provide an overview of some common abnormalities, including endometriosis, cervical abnormalities, fallopian tube abnormalities, cysts, masses, fibroids, nodules, and polyps.

Types of Malformations of the Female Reproductive System


Fibroids (Uterine Leiomyomas):

  • Fibroids are non-cancerous growths that develop in the muscular wall of the uterus.
  • They are among the most common benign tumors affecting women.
  • Fibroids vary in size, number, and location, and may cause symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, or pressure.

Types of Malformations of the Female Reproductive System


Cervical Abnormalities:

  • Abnormalities affecting the cervix, such as cervical dysplasia (abnormal cell changes) or cervical stenosis (narrowing of the cervical opening).
  • These abnormalities may increase the risk of cervical cancer or cause difficulties with menstruation or fertility.

Types of Malformations of the Female Reproductive System


Polyps:

  • Polyps are growths that can develop on the inner lining of the uterus (endometrium) or the cervix.

Types of Malformations of the Female Reproductive System


Masses: 

  • Masses refer to abnormal growths or lumps that can develop in different reproductive organs such as the ovaries, uterus, cervix, or vagina.
  • These growths can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous).

Types of Malformations of the Female Reproductive System


Nodules:

  • Nodules in the reproductive system typically refer to small, localized areas of thickening or abnormal tissue.
  • They may be found in the uterus, ovaries, or other reproductive organs.

Types of Malformations of the Female Reproductive System


Cysts:

  • Cysts are fluid-filled sacs that can form within the ovaries.
  • Most ovarian cysts are benign and resolve on their own without causing symptoms.

Types of Malformations of the Female Reproductive System


Fallopian Tube Abnormalities:

  • Anomalies affecting the structure or function of the fallopian tubes, such as blockages or abnormalities in shape.
  • These abnormalities can interfere with fertility by preventing the passage of eggs from the ovaries to the uterus or impairing the fertilization process.

Types of Malformations of the Female Reproductive System


Endometriosis:

  • A condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus, typically on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, or other pelvic organs.
  • Endometriosis can cause pelvic pain, painful periods, and infertility.

Western Medicine Perspective on Ovarian Cysts, Mass, and Nodules


In Western medicine, ovarian cysts, masses, and nodules are abnormal growths that can develop on or within the ovaries. Here's an overview of their causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment:

Causes


  1. Follicular Cysts: These are the most common type of ovarian cysts and form when a follicle fails to release an egg during the menstrual cycle, causing it to swell with fluid.
  2. Corpus Luteum Cysts: These cysts develop after an egg has been released from a follicle but the follicle fails to shrink. Instead, it fills with fluid, forming a cyst.
  3. Endometriomas: These cysts form when endometrial tissue (the tissue that lines the uterus) grows on the ovaries, causing the formation of cysts filled with old blood.
  4. Cystadenomas: These cysts develop from ovarian tissue and are filled with a watery or mucous-like fluid.
  5. Dermoid Cysts: Also known as teratomas, these cysts contain tissue such as hair, skin, or teeth because they develop from cells that produce human eggs.
  6. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): PCOS is a hormonal disorder characterized by enlarged ovaries containing multiple small cysts. It is associated with irregular menstrual cycles and hormonal imbalances.

Symptoms


  • Pain: Pelvic pain, often on one side of the lower abdomen, may be present, especially during menstruation or intercourse.
  • Changes in Menstrual Cycle: Irregular periods or changes in menstrual flow may occur.
  • Abdominal Bloating: The abdomen may feel swollen or bloated.
  • Urinary Symptoms: Increased frequency or urgency of urination.
  • Digestive Symptoms: Nausea, vomiting, or changes in bowel habits may occur if the cyst or mass puts pressure on nearby organs.
  • Pain during Intercourse: Some women may experience pain or discomfort during sexual intercourse.

Diagnosis


  • Physical Examination: A pelvic exam may detect abnormalities such as enlarged ovaries or masses.
  • Imaging Tests: Transvaginal ultrasound is often used to visualize ovarian cysts, masses, or nodules. Other imaging tests such as MRI or CT scans may be performed for further evaluation.
  • Blood Tests: Blood tests may be done to measure levels of certain hormones or tumor markers, which can provide additional information about the nature of the growth.
  • Biopsy: If a mass is suspicious for cancer, a biopsy may be performed to obtain a tissue sample for examination under a microscope.

Treatment


  • Watchful Waiting: Small, asymptomatic ovarian cysts may resolve on their own without treatment, especially if they are functional cysts.
  • Medications: Hormonal contraceptives or other medications may be prescribed to regulate the menstrual cycle and prevent the formation of new cysts.
  • Surgery: Larger cysts, persistent cysts, or ovarian masses that are suspected to be cancerous may require surgical removal. In some cases, only the cyst or mass is removed (cystectomy), while in others, the entire ovary may need to be removed (oophorectomy).
  • Monitoring: For women with a history of ovarian cysts or masses, regular monitoring with imaging tests and blood tests may be recommended to detect any changes over time.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Perspective on Ovarian Cysts, Mass, and Nodules


In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), ovarian cysts, masses, and nodules are often viewed as manifestations of underlying imbalances in the body's Qi (vital energy) and Blood. Here's an overview of their causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment from a TCM perspective:

Causes


  • Qi and Blood Stagnation: In TCM, the smooth flow of Qi (vital energy) and Blood throughout the body is essential for maintaining health and balance. When there are blockages or disruptions in this flow, stagnation can occur, leading to the formation of ovarian cysts, masses, or nodules. Factors such as emotional stress, unresolved tension, or stagnant Liver Qi can contribute to Qi and Blood stagnation in the pelvic area. Additionally, a sedentary lifestyle, poor diet lacking in nourishing foods, and inadequate exercise can further exacerbate stagnation, creating an environment conducive to the development of ovarian issues.

Causes


  • Kidney and Spleen Deficiency: In TCM, the Kidneys and Spleen are regarded as foundational organs responsible for reproductive health and overall vitality. Deficiencies or weaknesses in these organs can predispose individuals to the development of ovarian cysts or masses. The Kidneys, in particular, are associated with the storage of essence and are vital for reproductive function. Weakness or deficiency in Kidney essence can manifest as various gynecological disorders, including ovarian cysts. Similarly, the Spleen plays a crucial role in transforming food into Qi and Blood, and deficiencies in Spleen Qi or Spleen Yang may contribute to the accumulation of dampness and phlegm, further exacerbating ovarian issues.

Causes


  • Dampness and Phlegm Accumulation: Dampness and Phlegm are considered pathological factors in TCM that can accumulate in the body due to various dietary and lifestyle factors. Excessive consumption of greasy or fatty foods, along with a sedentary lifestyle and exposure to damp environments, can lead to the accumulation of Dampness and Phlegm. When these pathogenic factors accumulate in the pelvic area, they can obstruct the flow of Qi and Blood, leading to the formation of cysts or nodules in the ovaries. Additionally, Dampness and Phlegm can impair the function of the Spleen, further exacerbating the accumulation of pathogenic substances and contributing to gynecological issues.

Symptoms


  • Lower Abdominal Pain: Dull, achy pain or discomfort in the lower abdomen, which may be intermittent or persistent.
  • Irregular Menstrual Cycle: Changes in menstrual flow, including irregular periods, heavy bleeding, or spotting between periods.
  • Abdominal Bloating: Sensation of fullness or bloating in the lower abdomen, often accompanied by distention.
  • Fatigue: Generalized weakness or fatigue, which may worsen with physical exertion.
  • Emotional Disturbances: Mood swings, irritability, or emotional instability, which may be exacerbated by hormonal fluctuations.
  • Excessive Vaginal Discharge: Abnormal vaginal discharge, which may be thick, sticky, or have an unpleasant odor.

Diagnosis


  • Pattern Differentiation: TCM practitioners diagnose ovarian cysts, masses, or nodules based on the individual's pattern of disharmony, which involves analyzing symptoms, pulse, tongue appearance, and other diagnostic signs.
  • Palpation: Physical examination techniques such as abdominal palpation may be used to detect tenderness, swelling, or masses in the lower abdomen.
  • Tongue and Pulse Diagnosis: Examination of the tongue's color, coating, and shape, as well as assessment of pulse quality, can provide further insights into the underlying imbalances.

Treatment


  • Herbal Medicine: TCM herbal medicines contain Chinese herbs for Ovarian Cysts, Mass, and Nodules are prescribed based on the specific pattern of disharmony identified during diagnosis. These formulas typically aim to resolve Qi and Blood stagnation, tonify deficient organs (such as the Kidneys and Spleen), and eliminate Dampness and Phlegm.
  • Acupuncture: Acupuncture therapy may be used to stimulate acupuncture points along meridians related to the ovaries and reproductive system, promoting the smooth flow of Qi and Blood and alleviating pain and discomfort.
  • Dietary Therapy: Dietary modifications, such as reducing the intake of dampening and phlegm-producing foods and incorporating nourishing, blood-building foods, can support TCM treatment goals.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: Recommendations may include stress reduction techniques (such as meditation or qigong), regular exercise, adequate rest, and avoiding overwork or excessive sexual activity to restore balance to the body's energies.

Let's use the analogy of a river flow to illustrate the concept of Qi and Blood Stagnation, Kidney and Spleen Deficiency and Dampness and Phlegm Accumulation associated with ovarian cysts, mass, nodules in TCM

Let's use the analogy of a river flow to illustrate the concept of Qi and Blood Stagnation, Kidney and Spleen Deficiency and Dampness and Phlegm Accumulation associated with ovarian cysts, mass, nodules in TCM

Imagine a river flowing steadily through a lush valley, representing the harmonious flow of Qi and Blood in the body, essential for overall health. Now, let's explore how imbalances in this river flow relate to the development of ovarian cysts, masses, and nodules from the perspective of TCM.

Qi and Blood Stagnation:

  • In our analogy, imagine a section of the river where debris and fallen trees obstruct the flow, causing turbulence and stagnation. This obstruction represents Qi and Blood stagnation in the pelvic area, disrupting the normal flow of energy and circulation.
  • Similarly, emotional stress, unresolved tension, or stagnant Liver Qi in the body can create blockages, leading to Qi and Blood stagnation in the pelvic region.
  • Just as the stagnant river water can become a breeding ground for algae and bacteria, stagnation in the pelvic area can predispose individuals to the formation of ovarian cysts or nodules.

Kidney and Spleen Deficiency:

  • Now, picture the river's source high in the mountains, symbolizing the Kidneys, which store essence and vital energy. A weak or deficient Kidney source can be likened to a trickle instead of a steady stream, leading to deficiencies in reproductive health.
  • The Spleen, depicted as the soil and nutrients nourishing the riverbanks, is responsible for transforming food into Qi and Blood. Deficiencies in Spleen Qi or Spleen Yang can result in inadequate nourishment, weakening the body's foundation and predisposing it to gynecological disorders.
  • Just as a river without a strong source and fertile soil cannot sustain vibrant life along its banks, deficiencies in the Kidneys and Spleen can compromise reproductive health, contributing to the development of ovarian cysts or masses.

Dampness and Phlegm Accumulation:

  • Lastly, envision the river winding through a marshy lowland, where stagnant water collects and forms muddy pools. This stagnant, damp environment represents the accumulation of Dampness and Phlegm in the body, obstructing the free flow of Qi and Blood.
  • Excessive consumption of greasy or fatty foods, sedentary lifestyle habits, and exposure to damp environments contribute to the accumulation of Dampness and Phlegm, further impeding the body's natural processes.
  • Just as stagnant water in a marshy area breeds mosquitoes and other pests, Dampness and Phlegm accumulation in the pelvic region can create a fertile ground for the formation of ovarian cysts, masses, or nodules.

In summary, by using the analogy of a river flow, we can better understand how imbalances such as Qi and Blood stagnation, Kidney and Spleen deficiency, and Dampness and Phlegm accumulation in the body can contribute to the development of ovarian issues in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Addressing these imbalances through TCM modalities aims to restore the smooth flow of Qi and Blood, strengthen the body's foundation, and promote overall reproductive health and well-being.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Formulas vs Current Herbalism


Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) boasts an extensive history of herbal treatment, developed over thousands of years, offering valuable insights. In contrast to Western herbalism's reliance on single herbs at high doses, TCM utilizes combinations of 4 to 10 herbs, working synergistically to address various body imbalances. This approach enhances positive effects and minimizes negative side effects. TCM formulas not only alleviate symptoms but also target the root cause of the imbalance, allowing for reduced or discontinued herbal intake as health improves.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Formulas vs Current Herbalism


While the medical industry and research groups focus on isolating and extracting specific compounds from herbs or herbal extracts offer concentrated compounds for new treatments, this approach may limit the benefits. The process of extracting herbs often involves the use of solvents or high heat, which can degrade the quality of the active compounds and may also introduce harmful residues. TCM emphasizes the use of whole herbs, where naturally occurring compounds complement each other, maximizing therapeutic effects.

Silkie’s Herbal Formulas


Silkie is the result of five generations of experience and wisdom in Chinese Medicine. We start with the highest quality herbs that have been harvested at the height of their potency. They are substantially more expensive than less potent herbs that were harvested in the pre-or post-season, but in our view, there is no substitute for premium quality. Our supplements are made with natural honey as the binder. We don't use any fillers or artificial ingredients because this is how our great-grandfathers did it and we carry on that tradition.

Silkie’s Herbal Formulas


Herbal formulations take years and years to master and the most potent formulas are often kept as family or lineage secrets. This rich tradition is a very valuable gift from previous generations. With five generations of crafting formulas to help the local community, we have refined the herbal blends for modern life. 

Silkie utilizes herbal formulations tailored to individual patterns of imbalance. These formulas typically consist of a combination of herbs chosen for their synergistic effects in addressing both the symptoms and root causes.
