Yunnan Baiyao (云南白药) also known as Yunnan Paiyao [
Jiaonang = Capsules], has been extensively used and considered a sort of miracle drug for wounds, pain, and hemorrhage. Unlike Western pain drugs, it does not turn off pain centers in the brain, but instead facilitates circulation, bringing oxygen to the injury.
Stops bleeding, dispels blood stasis, disperses swelling, clears heat, resolves toxins, relives pain.
Use internally for swelling, bruising or bleeding in acute trauma. Also useful in other bleeding disorders including postpartum hemorrhage, nosebleed, blood in urine or stool, bleeding ulcer, and menorrhagia. Can be used internally for infected wounds or for postpartum blood stasis. Also used for wind-damp bi syndromes (arthritis and rheumatism), and promoting circulation in the muscles.
Yunnan Baiyao is useful for any type of open wound and any kind of surgery. It reduces recovery time for surgery by half because it mends injured blood vessels. It does not interfere with Western sedative drugs, so can be used the same day as surgery. By immediately activating blood circulation, it helps resolve bleeding, pain, and swelling. It heals oozing wounds and damaged blood vessels, while expelling pus and counteracting toxins. It is also used for traumatic swelling or bruising; for other blood disorders including thrombocytopenic purpura and leukemia; chronic stomachache, gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer bleeding; sore and swelling throat, hemoptysis caused by bronchitis, pneumonia, bronchiectasia, and tuberculosis; all gynecological blood stasis, including amenorrhea, irregular menstruation, excessive menses, uterine bleeding and leucorrhoea,and postpartum blood stasis; hemangiosarcoma and other bleeding tumors in dogs and cats; useful for EIPH in horses.
