How Is Yunnan Baiyao Used Clinically?

Yunnan Baiyao Usages and Indications

  • A very important formula to stop bleeding (generally from any cause) in Chinese Medicine.  Can be used topically and orally and comes in two primary formats (capsules and powder vials).  It is used in households around the world for general traumas, but also in the Chinese military for gun shut wounds and other significant traumas to the body.  May be used in the right situations for gynecological issues such as menorrhagia, retention of the placenta, etc.
  • Used in humans and animals for bleeding from cancer and other internal tumors.
  • Generally speeds healing of trauma, can be supportive for those undergoing surgery.
  • Note that the powder vials often contain a red pill at the very top of the bottle - this is generally only used if you are going into shock or someone is in shock - the contents are an undisclosed Chinese military secret as yunnan baiyao is only made from one manufacturer in the world and is a state-sponsored formula.
