Jiě/ Relief 解 Spring I Ching

April 21, 2022

Skye Sturgeon, DAOM, Quality Assurance Manager, Mayway

May Trigram

The hexagram associated with the fourth month of the Chinese lunar calendar or May on the solar/Gregorian calendar is Jiě 解/ Deliverance or Relief (#40). In the sequence of the gua, Jiě 解 follows Jiān 艱/ Difficulty or Hardship because things cannot remain in hardship without end. Many of us have been ill, many have lost friends or family, and nearly all of us have been frightened. Certainly, the isolation has engendered anxiety, depression, or feelings of loneliness. The I Ching promises Deliverance or Relief from these conditions.

Coronavirus Effects on Our Herb Supply

March 3, 2020

Eva Lau, Mayway Vice President

Many of you have inquired as to if/how the coronavirus situation in China will affect our supply of herbs. We have been in regular contact with our suppliers and manufacturers since news of the outbreak surfaced. Fortunately, our primary pill/tablet manufacturer has been in production since early February following the Chinese New Year holiday and was not affected by mandatory factory closures. Also, due to our experiences with long growing seasons, extensive testing, production and shipping times, we usually stock over a year of inventory on all of our formulas. We don't foresee a shortage based on normal order patterns, but have increased orders for our more popular formulas anyway. Read More
