Dit Da Jow Natural Bruise Liniment Eagle Claw Hand Strengthening Liniment Herbs

The second training formula is used to prevent injuries to the hands from gripping. I notice a lot of grapplers have to tape up their hands and fingers, and many have permanently swollen finger joints with decreased range of motion. Aside from this being inconvenient for other life activities, damage to the soft tissue of the fingers through overuse can create a host of problems. According to traditional Chinese medicine, damage to the fingers can cause blockages in the meridians, that in turn can lead to damage to the internal organs. Traditionally it is thought that damage to the very tips of the fingers – the place where the yin and yang polarity of the meridians of the arms changes – can cause blindness which results from clots in the small blood vessels of the fingers. This kind of damage can lead to limited range of motion in the finger joints, as well as trigger finger, tendonitis, arthritis, and nerve damage to the hands. So why not use a training formula like Eagle Claw Hand Strengthening Liniment that both strengthens the fingers, and helps to prevent the accumulation of these minor injuries from impacting on the health of the hand, as well as the rest of the body?

This unique formulation warms the meridians, dispels stasis and promotes the free flow of Qi and blood in the forearms, hands and fingers. This liniment also contains ingredients that are said to strengthen the sinews (tendons and ligaments) and bones of the hands, such as Xie Ke (crab shell), Long Gu (fossilized bone) and Xu Duan (Whose name literally means: “reconnect what is broken “).

More Information

A traditional jow shouldn't provide any particular sensation when being applied (except for a slight cooling sensation as the alcohol evaporates). What you should notice is that your pain just seems to disappear. It's not masked by local stimulus, instead the obstruction of qi and blood is moved by the medicinal nature of the substances in the liniment and your pain is gone. There is a saying in Chinese- Tong Ze Bu Tong, Ze Tong Bu Tong - Where there is pain there is no flow, where there is flow there is no pain.

Iron palm training jows (and soaks) take hit medicine to a higher level. The medicine itself is an integral part of the training and conditioning of the body. It is never undertaken lightly and should always include the supervision of a trained instructor. Iron Palm medicines are formulated to open the energy channels of the body leading the Qi from Dan Tien to the hands. Proper training takes many years. Used over the short term and without proper training, you simply have another useful Dit Da Jow.

Whether you are a martial artist, a warrior, or an athlete, repeated bruising in one area can create accumulations of stagnant qi and blood that can cause serious health problems as you age. Dit Da Jows were developed to disperse these accumulations and promote a healthy body and long career.
