This is a formula I initially searched to help my husband mild inguinal hernia symptoms. Chinese medicine view this condition as deficiency in the production of blood that nourish connective tissues, including its tensile strength. This formula is the closest one to the non-invasive hernia repair prevention. It has significantly decreased the inguinal pain and the need to stop any physical activities due to it. Before he could not finish a hiking circuit without stopping for the pain. Now he doesn't even remember he had it. Although he doesn't want to admit it because he can't understand how a pill can stop a hernia, I see the change. I also use it to treat my blood aspect of a Taoist herbal treatment. Together with Profound essence, easy qi and this formula i found my combination for the herbal program. Note: I'm a M.D. with chinese medicine background.

Dragon Herbs is an excellent company so I'm sure this is a good product, but it is a little too warming for me at the moment so I will wait until cooler weather to take the rest.

I got some heart palps and weakness from it because I later learned that it is contraindicated for someone with kidney yin/yan deficiencies. So I would not recommend to someone with extreme fatigue and general heart weakness as you need to build your kidneys first before you can take this product. Or of you do take it then make sure to take it with another Yin tonic to balance out the warming nature of this formula. DH products are very high quality and you can tell how potent they are but they are not all so "Extremely safe and effective" as the bottle states because the formula may need additional herbs to support your particular pattern. In other words, it is best to take it with supervision and based on professional advice. Since I got a bot of a reaction from it, I give it four stars but the formula itself and quality deserves five.
