Yunnan Baiyo should be an essential part of any first aid kit

Yunnan Baiyo should be an essential part of any first aid kit.

On a boat far from any medial help, boaters rely on what's in there First Aid Kit. It has helped many soldiers on the battle field, so it can help boaters in the same way.

Yunnan Baiyao effects are very powerful. It is the fastest treatment of different traumatic injuries, sports injuries, wounds made by knife, even bullet, or if you cut yourself shaving, no matter how severe they have been, just sprinkle it directly into a open wound, followed by pressure on the injured place.It is commonly used to treating bruises, contusions, chilblain, rheumatism and numbness, pains in bones muscles and joints. It can be used to arrest hemorrhage, stanch bleeding, activate blood circulation, eliminate inflammation and swelling, disperse blood clots, discharge pus and counteract toxin.

Everyone should keep Yunnan Baiyao at home, car or boat in their first aid kit in case of emergency. If an accident were to occur, this powder could be very, very important. It can be used for pets (dogs, cats) wounds as well. In addition, yunnan baiyao diminishes itch and swelling due to mosquito and insect bites, it has become a medicine commonly used in Chinese families everyday.

Re: Yunnan Baiyo should be an essential part of any first aid kit

It is not advisable to go beyond the dosage of 2 grams per day for adults. Also, do not take a single dose of 2 grams. It is always best to read the instructions for administration or consult with a medical practitioner especially if the drug is intended for children and infants. https://yunnanbaiyao.co

Re: Yunnan Baiyo should be an essential part of any first aid kit

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, willoliver.

Thanks to both of you, for the information. I was totally unaware of it.

According to Sloan-Kettering, DO NOT TAKE IF:
You are taking anticoagulant or antiplatelet drugs: Notoginseng may increase the risk of bleeding when used along with these drugs..
You are taking drugs that are substrates of CYP3A: Notoginseng may increase the risk of side effects of these drugs.
You are taking drugs that are substrates of CYP1A2, 2E1 substrates: Notoginseng saponins may decrease the effectiveness of these drugs.
You are taking drugs that are substrates of Glutathione-S-transferase (GST): Notoginseng may increase the risk of side effects of these drugs.
You have a bleeding disorder: YNBY can increase the risk of bleeding.
You are pregnant

Re: Yunnan Baiyo should be an essential part of any first aid kit

I would not accept this on face. The few studies that pass scientific muster found negliable efficacy. The FDA has kept it in the dietary supplements category. The primary use, coagulation, is better handled in a first aid kit by readily available products like Quick Clot, and paramedics don't even find those to have much utility.

Re: Yunnan Baiyo should be an essential part of any first aid kit

OK, let me amplify that to a general question of flash in the pan miracle drugs. Remember DMSO, an industrial solvent which in about the year 2000 would cure arthritis and running injuries? Somehow it doesn't do it any more. Of late we've got CBD oil, a byproduct (What are we going to do with this stuff?) of hemp/marijuana. It's supposed to perform miracles as well. Now Yunnan Baiyo, a Chinese traditional medicine. It's supposed to both be a coagulant (so are spider webs and dry clay) and dissolve blood clots, a combination which doesn't pass the logic test.

If one of these actually worked, there would be controlled (do you know what that means?) in vivo (live organism, not petri dish) trials, with very significant (another science term) results. They are not there.

Back in the 1950s, the automobile racing industry coined the term "Mouse Milk" to refer to pour into your gas/oli additives that were supposed to overhaul your engine for you, STP being the all-time survivor of that genre. On the medical side it was Carter's Little Liver Pills.

In other words, this has been going on a long time, probably since the dawn of advertising. If an extraordinary claim is made, wait for extraordinary evidence before you accept it.

Well said.

Reminds me of the "DHMO" situation.
Dihydrogen Monoxide Research Division - dihydrogen monoxide info

Ban Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) !!!

Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is a colourless and odourless chemical compound, also referred to by some as Dihydrogen Oxide, Hydrogen Hydroxide, Hydronium Hydroxide, or simply Hydric acid. Its basis is the highly reactive hydroxyl radical, a species shown to mutate DNA, denature proteins, disrupt cell membranes, and chemically alter critical neurotransmitters. The atomic components of DHMO are found in a number of caustic, explosive and poisonous compounds such as Sulfuric Acid, Nitroglycerine and Ethyl Alcohol.

Although the U.S. Government and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) do not classify Dihydrogen Monoxide as a toxic or carcinogenic substance (as it does with better known chemicals such as hydrochloric acid and benzene), DHMO is a constituent of many known toxic substances, diseases and disease-causing agents, environmental hazards and can even be lethal to humans in quantities as small as a thimbleful.

Each year, Dihydrogen Monoxide is a known causative component in many thousands of deaths and is a major contributor to millions upon millions of dollars in damage to property and the environment. Some of the known perils of Dihydrogen Monoxide include:
(* Very dangerouse to boaters)

* Death due to accidental inhalation of DHMO, even in small quantities.
* Prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage.
* Excessive ingestion produces a number of unpleasant though not typically life-threatening side-effects.
* DHMO is a major component of acid rain.
* Gaseous DHMO can cause severe burns.
* Contributes to soil erosion.
* Leads to corrosion and oxidation of many metals*.
* Contamination of electrical systems often causes short-circuits*.
* Exposure decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes.
* Found in biopsies of pre-cancerous tumors and lesions.
* Given to vicious dogs involved in recent deadly attacks.
* Often associated with killer cyclones in the U.S. Midwest and elsewhere, and in hurricanes including deadly storms in Florida, New Orleans and other areas of the southeastern U.S.*
* Thermal variations in DHMO are a suspected contributor to the El Nino weather effect*.

A recent stunning revelation is that in every single instance of violence in our country's schools, including infamous shootings in high schools in Denver and Arkansas, Dihydrogen Monoxide was involved. In fact, DHMO is often very available to students of all ages within the assumed safe confines of school buildings.

Act NOW to prevent further contamination. Find out more about this dangerous chemical. What you don't know can hurt you and others throughout the world.

We must Ban Dihydrogen Monoxide!

I agree Gord. We must ban dihydrogen monoxide. Further the government needs to provide a subsidized replacement. Such as, perhaps, Irish whisky 🥃

Re: Yunnan Baiyo should be an essential part of any first aid kit

tkeithlu is ignoring the important secret component of Yunnan Baiyo: dried tiger spleen. It is the trace elements of this ingredient that allow the miraculous results the OP mentions. Who knows what other effects other secret ingredients in this concoction might provide!!!
