Do you have aches, strains, sprains, or bruises from injuries old and new? Chinese Herbs can help.
If you're older than a 6 year old child, then it's likely that you have your fair share of aches and pains from injuries. A centuries-old Chinese Herb formula called Zheng Gu Shui might be just what you need.
Zheng Gu Shui translates as "bone mending water." According to Wikipedia Zheng Gu Shui, "created by a Chinese master herbalist over 500 years ago, was used to treat fractures, broken bones and injuries suffered in combat. It is used today by Chinese medical practitioners to treat all kind of injuries, including sports, automobile and accidental injuries."
In Chinese Medicine terms injuries cause Blood Stasis and Qi Stagnation at and around the injury location. Zheng Gu Shui helps to vitalize Blood and Qi thereby relaxing tendons and muscles and stopping pain.
Here's a review of Zheng Gu Shui from ActiveHerb.com:
"Incredible results! My husband has worked construction for 40 plus years & it has taken its toll. When he uses this product on sore muscles & joints it brings immediate relief like no other product. I use it too & love it!"
Here are a few reviews of Zheng Gu Shui from Ebay.com:
"I use this for sciatica when the acupuncture treatments wind down. Close to immediate relief."
"It used to come in brown glass bottles and had directions for setting broken bones in the box back in the mid 80's. Those are long gone, but this is still the same product."
"Great Pain Killer. I have been using this product for 5 years or more. It is great for sore muscles and light arthritic pain. It provides heat to the sore spot and relaxes tensed muscles. For me it's a must have for a stiff neck."
"Great topical pain relief. This product is a staple in my clinic for muscle pain and joint aches."
"Surprisingly Effective Muscle Strain Relief. I am getting excellent pain relief in my arthritic elbows and wrists. I have been using Yulin Zheng Gu Shui for about 6 months and will continue to use it, replacing the pain tablets I used to take."
"Excellent medication for pain and bones that need rehabilitative care. I highly recommend it for any needs regarding skeletomuscular rebuilding because it really works. You have to try it to believe it!"
"For relief of aches and pains and to prevent bruising. One of the best multi-purpose remedies to have on hand at home."
"I tried it and it worked for me. I am amazed as I was getting somewhat desperate for obtaining pain relief. Had a couple others try it also with the same results."
And here are a few reviews Zheng Gu Shui from Amazon.com:
"I first tried this at the suggestion of my acupuncturist. She recommended you put it on, let it dry, then do a second and a third application for best results. I've tried it with the 3 applications versus just 1 and I agree it seems to "sink in" better if you add the multiple coats. This works great on muscles strains from working out, stiff muscles and minor muscle irritations. I've used it quite a bit on my legs and lower back and shoulders and have been very satisfied."
"The Best!! Several years ago, i was told by my rheumatologist that eventually I would be in a wheel chair. I had broken bones and severe aches and pain all day, every day. I found a shiatsuist and have since stopped my prescribed meds AND have added using this lotion to my daily care. I can walk, skip a little and I have no pain. I apply this very evening and by morning, I am ready to face my day. I would recommend this to anyone who has a sore muscle or even expects one. It is fabulous stuff."
"Best kept secret: This product is great for bruising, fractures and areas where the body needs quick healing. An Acupuncture person who treated my son for a broken collar bone had us use this on his injured area and it decreased the recovery time in half. Been a believer ever since."
"I honestly thought it would be just another topical that did nothing but I was so wrong!! I applied it as suggested, three times on the same location rubbing it in between applications and this stuff WORKS!! I put some in a small roller ball bottle and it travels everywhere with me. My even more skeptical husband uses it now too with the same results. I've also used this for when my sinuses flare up at the base of my neck. Love this stuff!!"
"A Godsend! I have been using this stuff for nearly forty years! I would not waste my money on any of these new fangdangle, purported, hot relieving products. Folks, this stuff just flat out works on pain, and the subsequent maladies that accompanies old age!"
"Best analgesic for any aches and pain! I've been using Zheng Gu Shui for years now and whenever I have pain in my back, arm, neck or anywhere else on my body, I just put this on and within minutes the pain starts fading away. The first time I used this product was when I hurt my foot really bad on one side and could barely put any pressure on it. I put Zheng Gu Shui on the area that was hurting twice a day and within a couple of days my foot was feeling better and it barely hurt to stand on it. Everyone in my family also loves it and uses it for whenever they have any aching pains. It will definitely help relieve any pain you have!"
"This product was recommended by my MMA instructor. Works great! Use it on my bad shoulder and I have way better range of motion."
"Good for headaches: I have used this on my neck and shoulder for pain. Last night I had a terrible headache and carefully applied some on my neck, back of head and forehead, being careful to keep it away from my eyes. The headache subsided in about 5 minutes and I could sleep."
"Works Awesomely!! I had a bottle of this years ago that my dad's Chinese traditional medicine doctor said to use, and knew it worked great. So when I had bad back and hip pain recently, and otc pills weren't working, I decided to go for what I knew. And this product didn't disappoint. My back pain began to subside almost immediately, and was completely gone in about three days. Definitely recommend."
"This is by far the best product I have ever used. I had to have neck surgery a little over a year ago my pain was debilitating and I could barely function. I don't know how I would have made it without this. Truly wonderful stuff and lasts longer than any analgesic I have ever used and believe me I have tried them all!"
"When I had a lot of body aches it worked like a charm. By the next day I couldn't remember I'd ever had sore muscles."
"This product promotes healing of bones and joints and tendon pain. Also for quicker recovery of bruising."
"The best there is! I've had 3 spinal fusions. I always have a lot of tight muscles in my neck and back. This product was first given to me by a Chinese acupuncturist in Rhode Island. It works better than Bio Freeze, Ben Gay, Icy Hot, or any other product I have tried."
"This is a great product. It helps arthritis, joint stiffness, & arthritic pain. Also bruising and much more. Everyone suffering with arthritis/pain should try this. It is great!!!!"
"Great healer of wounds! This was recommended to me by my friend who is a licensed homeopath and acupuncturist. Even healed a hot spot on our dog. My friend was bitten by a Black Widow spider which left a huge blistered circle on her leg. Zheng Gu Shui helped with the sting, itch and healing."
"Instant relief. I have been using Zheng Gu Shui nearly 20 years. We used to call it 'medicine' back in the days of practicing Kung Fu. Some of our conditioning exercises were extreme and the pain of our arms would make training harder, but this amazing liquid was the cure. I have purchased over 50 bottles in my time, mostly for friends or clients who need temporary pain relief. The analgesic effect gets right to the muscle or joint almost immediately and is a must for sports people or anyone who has sore or aching muscles. Highly recommended."
"The best topical pain reliever I have ever used; works best in a spray bottle. Forget Bengay, Icy Hot, or Biofreeze: try this!"
"The most amazing remedy for my quad when i tore it. Blows icy hot and Bengay out of the water would buy over and over plus it smells amazing!"
"I have used this multiple times on tendonitis in my feet and ankles due to over training and racing. First used at my chiropractor/ART it seemed to heal a very very bad case of tendonitis over night! I had been in severe pain for 3 days (couldn't put any weight on my left foot) and went to see my chiro. He put this on before an acupuncture session and the next day I felt NOTHING. I had had the same injury the winter before from a long run that left me in severe pain for over a month. I am a believer. I now use this as soon as inflammation is down (usually 24 hours after onset of pain) and it saves me from a long road to recovery. As an endurance athlete time is precious and anything that helps is worth its weight in gold."
"Can't believe how this worked! I have been taking up running, and my shins and feet were killing me. I heard about this tincture from a massage therapist, who swore it was the best. After several days in pain, I tried this tincture. I put a bit on a cotton ball, rubbed it into my shin, and a bit into my toes. When I woke up the next day, the pain was GONE! Like, 95% better than the day before. I can't believe how fast it worked! I took a shower to make sure it hadn't just made my nerves numb or something, and no. The pain was gone, and has been gone ever since."
"ZHENG GU SHUI...A POWERFUL HEALING LINIMENT!! This liniment is a miraculous concoction of Chinese herbs, and it penetrates deeply and heals whatever is causing pain and stiffness. I have used it for arthritic joint pain, carpel tunnel pain, strained muscles, overworked joints and ligaments, and even on my forehead for migraine nerve pain. The Chinese REALLY know what herbs to use for HEALINGS...not just symptom easing, like conventional medicine practitioners in the US love to prescribe!"
Other kinds of pain can also be properly treated using other Chinese Herbs with the help of a Chinese Herbalist.
