5 Easy Dit Da Jow Recipes To Heal Pain and Injuries

Dit Da Jow is an ancient Chinese healing liniment used both externally (rubbed onto the skin) and internally (ingested in small amounts). It is traditionally used and preferred by martial artists. Often a martial arts master creates a Dit Da Jow recipe using a unique mixture of many aromatic herbs such as myrrh and ginseng. When combined they stimulate circulation, reduce pain and swelling, and improve healing of injuries and wounds (1).

This Dit Da Jow recipe incorporates the knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM is the oldest, continually practiced, and professionally administered health care system in the world. Its foundation is based on the principles of balance; the interdependent relationship between Yin and Yang. Through this balance, health is achieved and maintained (2).

One of the strongest areas in Traditional Chinese Medicine is that of trauma remedies (3). Back pain, cuts, bruises, lacerations, sprained joints, and pain are just some of the daily problems, which can pop up unexpectedly. This remedy is known to relieve qi and blood stagnation, promote healing, and soothe the pain.

Dit Da Jow recipe provides you with an effective liniment. A liniment is a medicated topical preparation for application to the skin. Sometimes called a heat rub. They are usually rubbed into the skin to allow for penetration of the active ingredients.
