    What does it do?
    Xiao Huo Luo Pian invigorates the blood, unblocks the channels, dispels wind and dampness and transforms phlegm to relieve numbness and/or chronic pain, including following a stroke (Zhong Feng or "wind stroke" in TCM). Xiao Huo Luo Pian is also particularly useful in relieving joint pain due to wind-cold-damp painful obstruction ("bi syndrome" in TCM). In both cases, symptoms are aggravated by cold and there is reduced range of motion. Frequently, these symptoms are most severe in the lower body.

    The tongue is typically moist and white, reflecting interior cold. Since cold is the predominating pathogenic factor in such patterns, pain is usually the most prominent symptom although numbness is quite common as well. Xiao Huo Luo Pian is a warming formula and dispersing formula, therefore it is contraindicated in cases of Yin deficiency, weak constitution and pregnancy.

    Today, Xiao Huo Luo Pian may be used for certain biomedically defined disorders such as hemiplegia (one-sided paralysis), rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis with the appropriate TCM pattern presentation.

    Xiao Huo Luo Pian is an important classical formula for releasing wind, cold and dampness from the body and restoring proper physiological function to the channels.

    Xiao Huo Luo Pian is composed of six herbal medicinals which powerfully warm the channels, dispel wind-cold-dampness and alleviate pain. The chief herbs are Zhi Chuan Wu (prepared mother root of common monkshood) and Zhi Cao Wu (prepared wild monkshood root). Chuan Wu and Cao Wu are among the most effective herbs in the Chinese materia medica for warming the channels and dispersing cold and dampness. Studies involving Chuan Wu have shown marked anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects which may be even stronger than aspirin.1

    Dan Nan Xing (Arisaema pulvis) is a deputy herb in this formula whose primary functions are in dispelling wind and dissolving phlegm. Dan Nan Xing is cool in nature and somewhat mitigates the hot nature of the other herbs in the formula.

    The two assistant herbs Mo Yao (Myrrh) and Ru Xiang (Boswellia resin) invigorate the blood, relieve pain and increase flow in the meridians. Both herbs have scientifically demonstrated analgesic effects.2 Finally, Di Long (earthworm) opens the channels and extinguishes wind. Di Long is frequently found in formulas which address Bi / painful-obstruction syndrome as it is extremely effective at unblocking the meridians.

    Together, these six medicinal herbs form Xiao Huo Luo Pian and are profoundly effective at relieving pain and numbness in cases with the appropriate clinical presentation. This is a warming and dispersing formula and is therefore contraindicated in cases of Yin deficiency, conditions aggravated by heat and/or constitutional weakness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've used the Shou Wu Wan Guang Ci Tang Brand for about two plus years I've used the Shou Wu Wan Guang Ci Tang Brand for about two plus years and recently switched over to the Hairvive brand for its higher potency. I've not seen either effect my sparsely graying hairs, thus the main reason why I bought it, but it’s worked well in other ways. The two most noticeable changes; it strengthened my nails, regulates bowel movements and it may help with keeping my youthful looks.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for my husband My husband have taken one bottle of Hairvive so far. His hair becomes darker. It seems works very well on his type who needs nurture Yin. I took two bottles of Hairvive, but it works slow on me. I think I need traditional type of QI BAO MEI RAN Wan, which can nurture both Yin and Yang at the same time. I suggest all of your medicine can be classified according to 《中医体质分类判定标准及中医体质分类与判定自测表》. Thank you.

I was skeptical of products that claim to grow hair. As I know and trust the people at ActiveHerb, I started to take HairVive. Now after 3 months my hair is growing back on my top. I am very happy about it and proud of ActiveHerb

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I started taking this for my hair which after 3 weeks stopped falling out. I dont know if this is what made it stop BUT my years of back aches which my Acu doc told me are due to yin deficiency are also almost gone after 3 weeks. This formula is amazing.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from not happy As the product says, promotes hair growth, well it is not doing that. I'm still losing hair and only used this product because my acupuncturist said to and it is not working. I was so hoping it would.
