Invigorate the Collaterals was selected by Kan after investigating several prescriptions for pain, Blockage patterns (bi zheng) and Blood stasis. These painful conditions obstruct the collaterals or vessels. The collaterals are the passageways for the circulation of blood. They are smaller than the channels and long-term disorders can reside there. This prescription was found to be versatile, broad-based yet powerful enough for both chronic and acute pain disorders, gynecological and menstrual problems, traumatic injury, and pain anywhere in the body. Simple and effective, it easily combines with other prescriptions that supplement Qi, Blood, or treat specific organ systems afftected by pain or trauma. This prescription is ideal in traumatic (die da) medicine, martial arts and/or sports medicine, to maintain Qi and Blood flow in situations of strains, sprains, bruises and contusions from repetitive injury.*
