Sciaticlear™ is a proprietary blend of eleven Chinese herbs that have a powerful ability to relieve pain by dispelling stasis and clearing obstructions from the channels. The herbs can be divided into 3 groups according to their functions.
The first group of herbs invigorates Qi and Blood to remove stasis. This group includes the chief herbs of this formula which are Ru Xiang (Boswellia) and Mo Yao (Myrrh). Modern studies have shown that this combination has a strong analgesic (pain relieving) effect.2 Together, Ru Xiang and Mo Yao strongly activate blood circulation and relieve pain. Yan Hu Suo (Corydalis root) and Chuan Xiong (Szechuan Lovage rhizome) also activate Qi and Blood circulation in the body to relieve pain. Jiang Huang (Turmeric) similarly relieves pain due to blood stasis and opens the channel pathways but is particularly important for its strong and well researched anti-inflammatory properties.3 Also included is Ba Ji Tian (Morinda) which is used to strengthen the sinews and bones and supplement the Liver and Kidney.
The second group of herbs address wind-dampness, open the meridians and relax the muscles and sinews. Xi Xian Cao (Siegesbeckia) and Wei Ling Xian (Clematis root) are used together for this purpose and are especially helpful in relieving muscle pain, spasms and cramps. Shen Jin Cao (Lycopodium) also dispels damp, relaxes the tendons and sinews and opens the channels.
The final group of herbs tonify blood and also relieve pain. Ji Xue Teng (Spatholobis stem) not only activates and tonifies the blood but also relaxes the tendons and opens the channels. Shu Di Huang (processed Rehmannia root) tonifies the Kidneys which play an important role in maintaining bone and joint health, especially in the lower back and legs. Shu Di Huang is an important tonifying herb used to nourish blood and Yin.
