Herbalist Note: This is the primary traditional formula in Chinese medicine for orthopedic repair of the low back, hips, and lower limbs. Commercial versions of this same formula have been a staple of my clinical practice in Telluride. This variation on the traditional formula is supercharged with bone and connective tissue knitting herbs and has shown tremendous clinical efficacy for over a decade of serving Orthopedic injury cases in the athletic and often injured population of Telluride, Colorado.
The formula has a component of four herbs which are known as “Women’s Precious” in Chinese Medicine. The same herbs which repair bone and connective tissue are supportive of healthy menses, breast milk, uterine health, fertility, beautiful hair, skin and nails. It is a fine feminine health formula.
Emotionally, this formula can assist in re-gaining sense of self worth and being able to “stand” in the world. It has been used for PTSD, for rehabilitation of sex workers and for nourishing a “sanguine,” grounded, solid and sane presence in our body and soul.
Dosage: Take 1 to 4 full droppers 3 to 6 times daily or as needed for pain, swelling and repair of orthopedic injuries.
