Description according to traditional Chinese medicine: This is a modification of the original traditional Chinese herbal mixture JIN GU DIE SHANG WAN, adjusted to meet today’s needs. This herbal mixture is used against any pain of the musculoskeletal system (muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones) due to diverse causes. According to traditional Chinese medicine, every pain is an expression of the tissue’s hunger for qi energy QI and blood XUE. Each injury and wound results in blocking of the flow of qi energy QI ZHI and blood block YU XUE; we can imagine this condition as a clogged gutter that prevents the flow of the desired energy QI and blood XUE.  Unlike Western medicine, which only suppresses pain and reduces swelling in case of injuries and wounds (for example using ice packs), the philosophy of Chinese medicine in such cases is different – according to TCM, ice causes the biggest stagnation of qi energy QI ZHI and blood YU XUE, thereby prolonging the time of curing because it does not drain the accumulated blood from the affected place and does not make it possible to bring new, regenerative blood. Ice also suppresses the inflammation for a while (heat RE), but prospectively causes a greater block, i.e. more intensive progress of the inflammation… According to TCM, therefore, effective and quick curing of wounds and injuries is achieved using herbs which stir up the blood block YU XUE and the stagnating qi energy QI ZHI, eliminate swelling from the affected place by draining the accumulated metabolites, suppress the inflammation by stirring up stagnation in the affected place, reducing the pain and bleeding and significantly assisting and accelerating regeneration of the affected tissue. It can be used very suitably along with Shaolin Oil (code 700) or with acupuncture.

Each batch of herbs in our products is tested in the accredited laboratory for medicines Phytax in Schlieren, Switzerland, to identify herbs, but also heavy metals (mercury, cadmium, lead, arsenic, and copper), bacteria (E. coli, Salmonella, total number of bacteria), mould, yeasts and aflatoxins. Our company TCM Herbs is the only supplier in the Czech Republic to test each batch of herbs for all herbal tables, among others for 511 types of pesticides (4 groups) because pesticides today become a worldwide problem, especially in products from the so-called Third World. Customers, in the belief that they use herbal preparations, are often, by contrast, “contaminated” with other undesirable “chemicals”.

Each laboratory is different

A laboratory for dietary supplements is obliged to verify only the presence of heavy metals, mould and bacteria – but does not determine the content of pesticides. A certified laboratory for medicines, on the other hand, also identifies individual herbs and in particular tests the entire range of pesticides (at least 500 types and more). There are only a few laboratories like that in the EU and the price is adequately high. It is therefore very important today to know which laboratory tests the dietary supplement and what the tests focus on, if each batch and each herb or just a sample are tested, how many pesticides, how many additives and how many additional binding agents the product contains, etc. – otherwise consumers could be easily deceived and disappointed… (for details read Safety and quality of TCM Herbs products)

The above implies that herbal tablets and drinks of TCM Herbs are, in terms of quantity (concentration of herbs in the mixture is 5 times higher, i.e. that 1 g of a herbal tablet equals 5 g of raw herbs) and quality (absolutely unprecedented testing of each batch), among the best products we can imagine and enjoy in the area of today’s Chinese medicine and natural medicine at all!
