Yunnan Baiyao Jiaonang
Yunnan Baiyao was invented in 1902 by Dr. Qu Huanzhang in Yunnan, China. Over the past 100 years, Yunnan Baiyao made its name in the battle grounds of Chinese fighting against Japanese invasion in World War II and of the Vietcong fighting against USA during the Vietnam War by saving soldiers' lives from severe wounds.
In China, Yunnan Baiyao may be used as first-aid for any kind of traumatic injury or internal bleeding, whether one has a small cut, bruise, swelling, an internal injury from car accidents or fighting, or bleeding from surgery and stomach ulcers etc. One may simply pour the Yunnan Baiyao power on to the cut and/or swallow the power.
In the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) terms, Yunnan Baiyao stops bleeding, disperses blood stasis, activates blood circulation, alleviates pain, clears away toxins, and reduce swelling. In studies, Yunnan Baiyao is shown to shorten the bleeding time and clotting time and reduce inflammatory response.
The formula for Yunnan Baiyao is considered as a national treasure by the Chinese government and guarded as a top medical secret.
