This famous formula helps to resolve ''stasis (stagnation) in the network of vessels''--this can mean reaching energy channels in the body that are deep and difficult to reach, such as the fallopian tubes. The Chinese feel that special herbs like frankincense and myrrh are key to reaching what is called blood stasis in these deep channels--both are included Free Flow. The goal is to soften the tissue and warm and move the blood.
If Free Flow is being taken to help move the blood stasis in the pelvic area, it is best to take 2-3 capsules twice a day and also to use a heating pad (low heat) or hot water bottle on the belly for at least half an hour every evening between day 1 and day 15 of the cycle. Wearing a Harimake can also help (ask for us to email you instructions for making one yourself).
If there is blood stasis in the uterine area, it is because in this area of the body that holds a lot of blood, there is impaired circulation. Usually, this is because of what the Chinese call a ''cold uterus''. The goal is not just to eliminate the current obstruction, but to change the energy pattern which creates repeating patterns. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact us. It is good to take this formula in combination with Cinnamon & Poria and, if appropriate, do the Fallopian Tube Massage or Lymphatic Skin Brushing.
Free Flow has multiple benefits.
In Oriental Medicine, it is believed that all pain comes from ''stagnation''--the interruption of the free flow of energy and blood in the body. The herbs in Free Flow are designed to increase the flow of energy and blood to the area of injury, or other stagnation.
Our Free Flow is a gentle, yet powerful combination of herbs that have traditionally been used to relieve pain, swelling and decreased range of motion caused by many types of traumatic injuries to the muscles and connective tissue. Free Flow does not mask symptoms, but moves quickly to release the energy blockage. Blockage can cause pain, because the energy flow is blocked. The blood stasis which results (blood not moving freely) can contribute to physical impediments that may not always cause pain, such as endometriosis or blocked fallopian tubes. If the root cause of these imbalances is not corrected the blockage may reoccur again and again after being surgically removed.
Free Flow is safe and non-addictive. It can be used once for occasional pain, or with frequent doses (up to 15 per day), to help unblock the energy stagnation that is causing more serious pain and loss of motion.
