Do You Know Anyone In Pain? Chinese Herbs can help.
According to WebMD "more than 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain at a cost of around $600 billion a year." Furthermore "an Institute of Medicine committee commissioned by Congress concluded that pain is not optimally managed in the U.S."
Humans have always had to deal with pain and Chinese Medicine has had methods for effectively dealing with pain for at least a few thousand years. In Chinese Medicine, pain is commonly caused by something called Blood Stasis or Qi Stagnation. The solution to Blood Stasis and Qi Stagnation is to get the Blood and Qi circulating.
My Chinese Herbalism teachers say that "Chinese Herbs are VERY effective for pain." As you'll read below, others agree.
Here are a few Amazon.com reviews of a Chinese Herb formula called Xue Fu Zhu Yu Wan (Drive Out Blood Stasis in the Mansion of Blood):
"Excellent product. Cedars Sinai Hospital Chinese Acupuncturist has me take this for endometriosis issues and issues like painful and heavy menstruation. Promotes better circulation in the body."
"Great product for upper body pain and circulation - there is not a conventional medicine that would have helped - only pain pills, do not want that. Surprised our system is not using Chinese Herbs - yet."
Here's an Amazon.com review of a Chinese Herb formula called Stasis In The Lower Palace Teapills (Shao Fu Zhu Yu Wan):
"This product is great for pain - but also blood flow - regular medicines can not compare at all - our acupuncturist has brought us a whole new world."
And here are a few ActiveHerb.com reviews for the Chinese Herb formula called Shen Tong Zhu Yu Wan (StasisClear™):
"This is a life saver! This used in conjunction with other herbs to promote better blood flow. I use this to help with pain caused by rheumatoid arthritis. Desiccated and ruptured disk. It has helped beyond expectations. To this date no over the counter medication, nor prescription meds, such as hydrocodone or other synthetic pain reliever has worked as well as these herbal medications. I was introduced to herbal mixes by my acupuncturist in 2015. To whom I was going to as a last resort before going in for a nerve oblation because of pain. Now a year later I am doing better than I could ever expect."
"Amazing results for me! I bought this product as a last ditch effort to help with my body pain. I've been in severe nerve or physical pain for about 6 years now and I've tried everything from chiropractic work to regular massage, to yoga and even diet change and regular juicing and nothing really seemed to work. Then someone recommended I try some Chinese Herbs and am very glad I did. I started to notice a result right away and would say that my daily body pain has gone from a 8 to a 4 in less than 2 weeks of taking this herbal remedy! I'm very pleased with the results and would recommend this to anyone who is living with chronic pain!"
"Really helped. 75 year old male. Using it for ~6 weeks. No low back pain the last month. Purple knuckles now pink. 75% Fewer PVCs. Increased energy."
In Chinese Medicine chronic pain can point to an underlying imbalance that can be properly treated using other Chinese Herbs with the help of a Chinese Herbalist.
