Dang Gui Plus Tincture

$17.50

This tincture is designed to clear clotting during periods. 

According to Chinese medicine, clotting in menstruation is not normal, even though it is very common, so this tincture will be prescribed for all patients with clotting in periods, EXCEPT when clotting is the cause of excessively heavy periods or dysfunctional uterine bleeding due to blood stasis. In that case, Steve would initially use Tienchi tablets (3 tablets AM & PM) with any uterine bleeding, as these tablets both stop abnormal bleeding and also break up blood stasis. Once the clotting has been reduced and menstrual bleeding is closer to normal, Steve would then prescribe the Dang Gui Plus Tincture from then on, to ensure clotting does not return.

Dang Gui Plus Drops should not be taken during pregnancy. Most of the time this will happen automatically, since usually people do not have periods when pregnant. In the few cases where the patient does have some bleeding while in the early stage of the pregnancy, if they have already taken the Dang Gui Plus Tincture during that bleeding, in Steve’s experience that will not cause any problem, and the patient can (if they are worried) be reassured. Patients who are not falling pregnant due to blood stasis will often only fall pregnant when herbs to remove blood stasis are being employed. Use your clinical judgement as to whether a few gentle blood harmonisers (i.e. herbs that both tonify and move blood, such as small doses of dry-fried Dang Gui and Chuan Xiong) should be continued when these patients are being treated with herbal decoctions during their pregnancy.
