    Reduces Intensity and Frequency of Headaches

    It's back with a vengeance. Another horrible attack is about to strike. The throbbing, pulsating pain makes you want to curl up in bed for the rest of the day with the blinds drawn like a vampire. But with your busy life, that's not possible.

    If only confining yourself in a coffin could cure you. Moreover, you've tried just about everything to get rid of your headache. But relief from cold compresses, chiropractic treatment, and over-the-counter remedies are short lived, if effective at all….

    Looking for a safe, all-natural remedy to reduce the intensity and frequency of migraines you experience once and for all?

    Migranoff™ just might be the answer you've been looking for.

    Migranoff™ may not work immediately. But if you supplement consistently with it, over time, you may experience relief from migraines caused by certain external factors (see below for explanation).

    We ask that you try Migranoff™ for a minimum of 2-3 weeks before noticing any positive outcomes.

    Signature Chinese Herbal Formula Clears Wind

    The root cause of migraine headaches is unknown, according to conventional Western medicine.

    Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theory, without specifically referring to migraines, explains three differentiations of headaches. These include headaches caused by invasion of external pathogenic wind into the meridians and collaterals, uprising of Liver Yang, or deficiency of Qi and blood. It's the first type of headache that Migranoff™ may offer relief.

    So how does pathogenic wind cause headaches in the first place? The yang meridians of the hand and feet meet in the head. Furthermore, the Qi and blood that flows throughout your organs all flow towards the head. And when an external pathogenic factor such as wind attacks, it strikes the upper body first. When this happens, it causes an alteration or inhibition of Qi and blood circulation in the head (and the meridians that travel into the head), causing headaches.1

    Although headaches are very common, they are far from normal. Migranoff™ doesn't merely treat a symptom (your migraine); the herbs in the formula address the root cause of disharmony that cause migraine headaches. (For headaches caused by internal Liver Yang uprising try our formula Liver Windclear™.)

    How does Migranoff™ work?

    The first herb in the formula, Chuan Xiong (Szechuan Lovage Root) expels wind and moves Qi upwards in the meridians leading to the head. The next herb, Du Huo (Angelica Root) also dispels wind invasions that cause headaches, as does the third herb in the formula Fang Feng (Siler, aka Laserwort), which also resolves Liver disharmony.

    Qiang Huo (Notopterygium Root) disperses wind, cold and dampness, and unblocks obstructions in the channels (meridians). Gao Ben (Chinese Lovage Root) expels wind and cold, while Man Jing Zi (Vitex Fruit) disperses wind and heat in the Liver Channel, which leads to the eyes and head.

    Next, Bo He (Mint) removes wind and fire, especially from the head region. Bai Zhi (Angelica Root) resolves external wind and cold patterns as well as dampness, while the last herb in the formula, Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica Root) is a blood tonic.

    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.

    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.
