What does it do

Improves Circulation To Relax Muscles And Nerves

What is the single biggest thing that can rob your quality of life? It’s when the activities you used to enjoy are impossible to undertake. Even putting on your jacket can be an excruciating reminder that life isn’t as enjoyable as it used to be.

So what’s the root cause? According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the culprits are blood stasis and Qi obstruction in the channels.

Think of blood stasis as a still swamp. Nothing’s moving. Nutrients can’t get carried to the cells. Metabolic waste can’t be transported through the bloodstream and onwards to the elimination organs.

And when blood stasis occurs, the theoretic energy channels, also known as meridians, become obstructed. Think of a clogged freeway in a major city during rush hour. This is what Qi obstruction looks like. Qi is your body’s life force. If it can’t move freely throughout the body, discomfort in various areas of the body may manifest, including the arms, legs, shoulders, and lower back.

Given enough time, our all-natural herbal formula, StasisClear™, may help. StasisClear removes Qi obstruction and blood stasis. StasisClear does not work immediately, therefore, we suggest allowing up to four weeks for potential positive outcomes to be noticed.

Well-Regarded Formula Activates Blood and Qi Circulation

StasisClear is a relatively new formula, by way of traditional Chinese medicine, originally appearing in about 1830 (a.c.e.). Today, many people use StasisClear or its Chinese namesake, Shen Tong Zhu Yu Pian, to support the body’s sense of physical well-being, wherever obstruction occurs, be it your head, back, legs, arms or neck, etc.

With Qi obstruction, the blood congeals and comes to a standstill, i.e. stagnates. The meridians (super highways) and vessels (freeway arteries) become obstructed.

StasisClear invigorates blood and removes blood stasis; dispels wind and removes dampness; and unblocks the channels.

StasisClear is most suitable for use if discomfort occurs at a fixed body location. Moreover, if your tongue is purple or has bruise spots, this is an indication of blood stasis. StasisClear may help if your tongue shows these signs.

How Does StasisClear Work?

There are 13 herbs in the formula, most of which invigorate the blood, thereby potentially relax muscles and nerves. Tao Ren (Peach Seed) invigorates the blood and dispels blood stasis. It also moistens the intestines and moves the bowels. Hong Hua (Safflower Flower), too, invigorates the blood while also unblocking the Channels, thereby dispersing stasis.  Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica Root) nourishes and invigorates the blood, and like Tao Ren, it also moistens the intestines and moves the bowels. Chuan Xiong (Szechuan Lovage Root) invigorates the blood and moves Qi and expels wind. Mo Yao (Myrrh Resin) invigorates blood circulation.

Qin Jiao (Largeleaf Gentian Root) disperses wind-damp and clears damp-heat. Qiang Huo (Notopterygium Root) disperses cold and dispels wind, while expelling dampness.

Xiang Fu (Cyperus Rhizome) promotes Qi movement and resolves Qi stagnation.

Meanwhile, Niu Xi (Achyranthes Root) tonifies the Liver and Kidneys, strengthens sinews and bones, dispels stasis and unblocks the Channels while also inducing the blood moving downward. Di Long (Earthworm) unblocks the collaterals and promotes urination.

Pian Jiang Huang (Turmeric) breaks up blood stasis and moves Qi and unblocks the Channels.

Yan Hu Suo (Corydalis) is a representative of many of the other herbs in the formula, as it possesses the actions of invigorating the blood, promoting movement of Qi, and relieving discomfort.

Finally, Gan Cao (Licorice Root) Tonifies the Spleen and mediates the action of other herbs in a concerted way.
