A TCM First Aid Kit

These items may be found at your local pharmacy or Chinese herb store, or online at various websites selling Traditional Chinese patent remedies.
These 5 products comprise the foundation:

  • Herbal healing salve with typical organic herbs that provide natural antibiotic action to quickly soothe and speed the healing cuts, scrapes, abrasions, rashes, and burns.
  • Ching Wan Hung Burn Ointment - invaluable in the kitchen - this ointment stops burn pain almost immediately and is excellent on all types and degrees of burns
  • Dit Da Jow Bruise Liniment - provides pain relief and reduces swelling on all manner of bumps, bruises and swelling caused by impact injuries
  • Po Chai Pills - the fastest relief for indigestion and hangover - these pills also reduce nausea from radiation therapy and motion sickness
  • San Huang San Herbal Ice - magically reduces swelling from the trauma of sprains and strains - far more effective than the traditional ice pack
This complete list is taken from the book A Tooth From the Tiger's Mouth: How to Treat Your Injuries with Powerful Healing Secrets of the Great Chinese Warriors by Tom Bisio. The book itself is an outstanding reference for TCM sports medicine and first aid, and is a valuable resource to be included in your medicine chest.
