  • How it works

    Bursitis Relief is based on a Chinese herbal formula called Wang Bu Liu Xing San. The formula has been originally applied after injuries or wounds, in particular those caused by a knife or blade, and early surgeries. In more recent times, this formula has been primarily applied post-surgically.

    It is also effective for the swelling and pain of bursitis.

    The individual herbs in this formula combine to elicit anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, diuretic, vasodilatation and anti-hypertensive effects.

    Traditional understanding

    Vaccarie Semen promotes the movement of blood and reduces swellings. Artemisiae scopariae Herba and Mori Cortex combine to clear heat and dampness, and promote urination to facilitate the resolution of sores, rashes and other skin conditions, swelling and oedema. Mori Cortex also helps to resolve cough and wheezing. Glycyrrhizae Radix clears heat, toxins and aids in the digestion of other herbs. It also strengthens the digestive function, reduces lassitude, calms spasms and reduces pain. Zanthoxyli Pericarpium and Zingiberis Rhizoma disperse cold to warm the body, alleviate pain and strengthen digestive function. Magnoliae officinalis Cortex reduces distension and fullness by invigorating qi (oxygen) flow. It also directs the qi downward to reduce nausea and/or wheezing. Scutellariae Radix (HQ) clears heat, dampness and toxins to reduce fever, thirst, irritability, help combat infections and prevent bleeding. Paeoniae Radix alba (BS) nourishes the blood and augments the body fluids to prevent dryness, cramping, spasming and abdominal pain.
