What does it do?
Speeds up recovery time from injury†
There's no getting around it when you break a bone or have a trauma of another nature, it's going to take a long time to heal. But wouldn't it be great to get back on the tennis court or golf links sooner than the average person (or whatever else it is you enjoy doing)?
Many people aren't aware that herbal medicine may speed up recovery time from injury. But Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), specifically for trauma and injuries, dates back several centuries. And unlike the western approach of icing an injury, thereby decreasing blood flow, the TCM approach is to speed healing by invigorating Blood. This allows both Qi and blood to flow unobstructed, which may help alleviate discomfort.
One of the most famous TCM herbal remedies for injury recovery is Jin Gu Die Da, or translated into English, "Tendon and Bone Healing." Our unique formulation of this classic TCM remedy is BruiseMender™, which may help quicken your recovery time.
Complex formula breaks blood stasis and mends bones and tendons†
It may come as no surprise that Chinese medicine for traumatic injuries has its roots in martial arts. In fact, the curriculum for what can be described as "trauma medicine" was created in martial arts schools. The discipline of treating fractures, sprains, and mending the bones and tendons evolved from injuries sustained both in martial arts training and from those on the battlefield.
Unlike other health concerns that have a more esoteric TCM pathology for the uninitiated, it's easy for any lay person to understand why bruising and swelling occur after an injury. However, it's worth mentioning how BruiseMender works from a TCM perspective.
BruiseMender is one of the most complex formulas in Chinese medicine. Some TCM formulas for trauma contain as little as a handful of herbs. In comparison, BruiseMender has 23 ingredients.
Several of the herbs in BruiseMender break up blood stasis, which is essentially blood trapped in the vessels. Other herbs move and strengthen the blood. In addition, some of the herbs by nature mend or strengthen bones and connective tissue. And some of the herbs are mild Yang tonics. Yang is warming energy, which is necessary for speeding up healing time. When traumatic injury occurs, blood has a tendency to stagnate. BruiseMender works by breaking up this blood stasis. This action is critical, especially if you are following the usual western protocol of immobilizing a joint after a traumatic injury, which causes blood stasis.
How does BruiseMender work?
Because of the large amount of ingredients in the formula, the actions of the herbs will be abbreviated and grouped together.
The chief blood-stasis breaking herb in BruiseMender is San Qi (Notoginseng). The other herbs that assist in resolving blood stasis and/or invigorate the blood include Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica Root); Bai Shao (White Peony Root); Chi Shao (Red Peony Root); Tao Ren (Peach Kernel); Hong Hua (Safflower), which also unblocks the Channels; Liu Ji Nu (Artemesia Herb), which also reduces swelling; Su Mu (Sappan Wood), which also may assist in reducing swelling; Mu Dan Pi (Tree Peony Bark); Mo Yao (Myrrh Resin), which also reduces swelling; Ru Xiang (Boswellia Resin), Jiang Huang (Turmeric), and San Leng (Bur Reed Tuber), all three of which also promote Qi movement; and Tian Gua Zi (Muskmelon Seed), which also is used in TCM applications for wound healing.
Ingredients in the formula that may reduce swelling and/or promote the mending or strengthening of sinews and bones include Gu Sui Bu (Drynaria Rhizome); Xu Duan (Teasel Root); Zi Ran Tong (Pyritum); and Tu Bie Chong (Ground Beetle), which also dissolves stasis.
