    What does it do?

    In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Jin Kui Shen Qi Pian can replenish Yang due to the Yang insufficiency of the kidney. The kidney is the innate foundation of all organs with respect to the Yin-Yang principles, Qi essence etc. When the kidney is diminished functionally, other organs suffer as a result. Thus it is vitally important to maintain the Kidney in a good state. This explains why many symptoms seemingly unrelated to the Kidney may be relieved by restoring the Kidney Yin-Yang.

    In TCM, a diminished Yang manifests as weakness in the lower back, a cold feeling of the body, poor male performance etc. YanVive is composed of Yin-promoting YinVive and additional herbs that promote Yang. YanVive is designated in China Pharmacopoeia for Yang insufficiency of Kidney, weakness and soreness of the loins and the knees, cold feeling in the limbs, and frequent urination. Published and unpublished human clinical studies have supported the use of YanVive in numerous applications. In many cases, YanVive can be applied to the same symptoms as YinVive. Whether YanVive or YinVive is used depends on whether the signs of Yin or Yang deficiency is present. Highlighted below are some instances in which YanVive may be used.

    • Lower back weakness due to the Kidney Yang deficiency, which may manifest as weakness and soreness of the waist and legs, cold in the limbs or even the whole body, a pale complexion and tiredness. These are often complaints for people, especially professionals who spend hours in front of a computer each day and who are middle-aged.

    • Sexual wellness. In the case of Kidney Yang deficiency, one may experience poor male performance. The low back feels weak the next day and it takes longer to achieve a follow-up erection.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Resolved My Thyroid Issues! A couple of years ago my blood tests for thyroid function were not in the target ranges, and my doctor declared that I had Hashimoto's thyroiditis. After trying Western prescription treatments and experiencing severe side effects, I tried taking YanVive. Every test since then has been completely normal. My Western doctor shakes her head and says, "just keep doing whatever it is that you're doing." I no longer get cold as easily and don't get as tired as often. I take 3 pills, three times a day (I am hypersensitive) and have done so for over two years now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Connection!! I'm a TCM student & Native American healer, so fortunate to have found this website! I purchased this medication to assist with a 14yr old boy with bed wetting along with moxi a few points. It was successful while he was consistent taking it & treatments, I do believe we could beat this issues with consistency, however it's on him to want the cure to work, lazy... Great herbs!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps with Low Energy My wife's doctor suspects she has hypothyroidism. Her symptoms included low energy level, brain fog, and switching between feeling cold and occasional hot flashes. Anytime she sat still for more than three minutes she fell asleep regardless of how much sleep she had the night before. Her doctor wanted to put her on hormone therapy. But my wife wants to avoid pharmaceuticals if possible. So a friend recommended this product about a year ago and it has been helping with her low energy level and brain fog. Within a week of taking YanVive my wife started to see the results. The hot flashes are still persistent, which another product that we don't know about yet might help. But for the fatigue, YanVive has been very helpful.

    Hello, can you take these if you are also on the Birth Control Pill? Does it have any interactions with the BCP? or lower the strength of the pill, or any of your formulas. Many thanks and look forward to your response. Cheers
