Invigorate the Blood - General Formula Concepts

Issues with blood circulation may lead to generalized pain and fatigue to fixed masses. The blood may also be effected by traumatic injuries for which many of the formulas in this section are useful. Many formulas within this section are contraindicated during pregnancy due to their invigorating functions and others should be used sparingly if at all with underlying deficiencies. They should be avoided entirely in any patient with bleeding/clotting disorders as well as those with heavy menstrual cycles.
