Yunnan Baiyao Capsules
WHAT IS YUNNAN BAIYAO?
Yunnan Baiyao is a prized Chinese Herbal Medicine used to stop bleeding (both internally & externally). It can be used externally on open cuts, wounds and tumors; or, Yunnan Baiyao can be used internally for severe bruising, bleeding ulcers, blood or urine in stools, nosebleeds, tumors and post surgery. Yunnan Baiyao is also used to reduce inflammation, provide pain relief, to tonify the blood (i.e. snake bites) and promote healing.
Yunnan Baiyao is commonly used to extend the life of dogs (and cats) with bleeding cancers such as hemangiosarcoma or nasal cancer (nosebleeds). Some treatments for cancer, such as Chemotherapy, tend to promote bleeding; it makes sense that giving a supplement to promote blood clotting would be a benefit. It is believed that Yunnan Baiyao works by activating the platelets, which are the small blood components that help make the blood clot. Blood clots are the first step in a scab. They are like little plugs or corkes in the way they stop hemorrhage.
