This classical Chinese herbal formula was first created in 1830 by Wang Qing-Ren. It was created to help move blood stasis from the upper jiao, which in Western anatomy is the chest. Clinical manifestations of blood stasis in the chest include pain in the chest or in the rest of the body, which may lead to restlessness and irritability. The design of this formula uses two formulas contained in it to nourish the blood, activate blood circulation, and clear heat. Overall this formula has unique properties of activating blood circulation without injuring the blood, while also soothing the Liver and relieving qi stagnation without consuming qi. This formula has many applications for veterinary patients, and by adding other herbs to this one can create a more specific use for this formula.
By adding E Zhu, which is from the turmeric plant and contains curcumin, and San Leng, which is the Chinese herb made from Sparganium or Common Burr-reed rhizome in relatively large quantities to this formula, its major emphasis then is on breaking up stagnation, or stasis, and works very similarly to the popular herbal compound, Stasis Breaker from Jin Tang herbs. In Traditional Chinese Veterinary and Human Medicine, blood stagnation is considered one of the hallmarks of cancer, and herbs that can relieve this stagnation have been found to be useful in patients who have been diagnosed with neoplastic disease, also known as cancer.
This formula is provided in a concentrated form in "Extract Granules". This is the same concentrated form that is in the capsules of Stasis Breaker and Wei Qi Booster. Most pets will accept the herby spicy taste readily, but for those who are reluctant to eat this powder with their regular diet, using a bribe food such as raw meat or someting else very tasty to disguise the taste can help. Also, if you have a treat ready when you give this herb mixed with a small amount of food to hide it, you will encourage your dog to swallow it quickly so they can get to the second treat. (Sneaky little manuever here) The powder can be placed into capsules, although that is not available on this website, and it should be administered to your pet according to the following administration guide:
