Du Huo Ji Sheng Wan
Uses: Osteo and Rheumatoid Arthritis, Joint Pain, Sciatica, Back Pain. Du Huo Ji Sheng Wan (Pian), also seen as the “Solitary Hermit Teapills” is a traditional Chinese Medicine formula to alleviate joint pains and muscles aches, particularly those that are worse in cold and damp environments. In Chinese Medicine, arthritis is termed bi-syndromes and there are multiple kinds (heat, damp, fixed, etc.). This formula is a very old classic used to treat joints problems and stiffness from cold and damp symptoms. While cold and damp syndromes may arise with other symptoms such as fatigue, sensation of cold/heaviness, digestive issues, etc. if your conditions are generally worse in cold/damp weather and/or made better by rest and heat then this should be an appropriate formula for you.*
Recommended Dosage: Take 5 to 8 pills 3 times per day after a meal. At full dose, one bottle renders an 8 to 10 day supply. For relatively acute/minor issues you should see results within 1-5 weeks, for more chronic issues 2-5 months may be appropriate.
Caution: Avoid during pregnancy and use only after consultation with a Chinese Medicine practitioner or physician if you have hypertension, diabetes or any liver or kidney issues. Do not use when you have a cold and/or fever.(200 tablets)
