001 – Broken Shackles – Chinese herbal tincture | YaoMedica

Contents: 50 ml = 1,100 drops

The Broken Shackles tincture is based on the traditional Xiao Yao San formula, probably one of the most frequently used traditional Chinese medicine formulas.

It addresses the imbalance of Gan (liver) and Pi (spleen), loosely translated as the issue of stress somatisation. The Chinese name Xiao Yao San is most often translated as ”Free Wanderer”, suggesting that this formula allows users to move on, free from their previous stress and tension.

Alternative names and translation: Freedom Powder, Free Wanderer Powder, Xiao Yao San.

Ideal composition, maximum power, and effectiveness

The BROKEN SHACKLES tincture is based on Chinese herbs or yao.

Chinese herbs and mushrooms are the basis of our alcoholic YaoMedica tinctures. We use only the highest-quality ingredients in order to achieve maximum effectiveness. First, the herbs or mushrooms are ground into a very fine powder, using a special machine. Then, they’re macerated in 50% alcohol for up to one month. The macerated extract is dynamised every day. Tinctures are not diluted further once finished. That’s very important.

Compared to herbal brews or hot-water extracts, the mechanism of releasing active substances by means of maceration in 50% alcohol is much more intense. When tinctures are used, active substances are released as early as in the oral cavity, increasing effectiveness.

Individual YaoMedica tincture formulas are based on the experience and time-tested traditional Chinese medicine methods which have existed for more than 4,000 years. Its view of humans is holistic, i.e. it has a comprehensive perception of the human body, as a whole, and at the same time as a part of the environment. Balance and harmony – that’s the way to deal with many issues brought about by our current lifestyle, both on the physical and psychological level.

  • shake the tincture before use. Slight turbidity is normal.
  • daily dose equals 1 drop per 1 kg of body weight. Split the daily dose in two parts – morning and evening, i.e. if you weigh, e.g., 70 kg, you’ll be taking 35 drops in the morning and 35 drops in the evening. This way, the tincture will last 15 days.
  • dose can be tripled if recommended by a professional.
  • use tinctures on an empty stomach, with a minimum interval of 30 minutes before a meal, or an hour after a meal.
  • you can pour a little hot water over tinctures to make the alcohol they contain evaporate. This procedure is recommended for children and drivers.
  • if you suffer from an acute condition, we recommend you use the tinctures for several days, usually until the problem passes.
  • if you suffer from a chronic condition, you need to use the tinctures for several months, though improvement should occur within 2-3 months.
  • a month-long treatment usually requires 2-3 packages (depending on the daily dose – see above)
