Repost from @dmacupuncture using @RepostRegramApp - In TCM, we have a phrase that says "Ice is for dead people." So the mere mention of using ice in the context of injuries is near blasphemy.
However, I think there is some rational arguments for it's limited use, and that's mainly to reduce pain in acute situations. Other than that, I say put it in your lemonade. None the less, here is a well written and objective review of the usage of ice and it's relationship to inflammation.
In TCM, there are topical herbs that can be applied which reduce swelling while not constricting capillaries as ice does.

On Wednesday, I posted a photo of my sprained ankle with San Huang San on it. Two days later, the swelling is down to almost normal. I trained on it yesterday and was able to fully train on it this morning. An injury that normally takes weeks to get back to training is almost normal after one day off! The San Huang San I used was made by @picture.healer. He has some very effective products He sells on etsy!

Using #traditionalchinesemedicine to help heal a sprained ankle I got while training last night. This particular herbal concoction is called San Huang San and is sometimes called "herbal ice." It is used during the initial stages of the injury instead of ice. It helps bring down swelling and increase circulation for faster healing. #lakeparkkungfu #kungfuusa #chinesemedicine #tcm #abimoxi #sanhuangsan #sprainedankle

I recently suffered a neck injury that was a combination of old trauma (two major neck injuries during puberty that almost paralyzed me) and over stretching caused by an ultra-sound e-stim machine at my Chiropractors office. ✨ Tuesday; my neck had been stiff and tight for a few days and since it's a sensitive area for me I decided to take extra good care of myself and see my Chiro for an adjustment, which went really well and felt perfect. He used an e-stim machine before I left to help relax any residual spasmed muscles. ✨All was fine until I woke up on Wednesday in excruciating 10/10 pain, could not move my neck and my entire left side locked up in a vice grip from hell. Yikes. My first picture shows the way I treated myself for those first 2.5 days. I did EVERYTHING humanly possible to shift this on my own including visiting a nearby Acupuncturist. I used #resinallk and other herbal trauma formulas (ones that helped me to work with a broken foot a few months back with little to no residual pain). These formulas are STRONG folks and have never let me down, until this week. My stress level was astronomical. I couldn't sleep or rest comfortably because the pain was too intense. I was scared because even with all the holistic intervention my neck was getting worse each day, not better. ✨On the third day I finally went to my GP. He prescribed lots of drugs....and I took them all! Taking the medication reduced my pain from a 10/10 to a 7/10 in just a few hours, then to a 4-3/10 with 8-6/10 flare-ups over the next 2 days. They helped my body turn a corner and actually start to heal. The medication helped me to sleep which is vital to my recovery and put my mind in a safer space, so even when I could still feel the pain my nervous system wasn't in such a state of shock anymore. I continued my holistic treatments which finally started working and speeding recovery. Looking back I should have gone to the hospital right away. I should have been able to notice the difference between a situation which could be treated with holistic intervention vs. one that needed Western medicine. Integrative medicine is the key here.

San Huang San (Three Yellow Powder).
.

Rarely does an acupuncturist recommend using ice after an injury. Extensive icing can actually be damaging to the fascia, cause contraction of the muscles, and the cold can penetrate into the bone in worst cases. However there are cooling herbs that can be used which will neither impede the flow of qi nor cause the blood to congeal, which ice has tendency to do.

Three Yellow Powder is composed of 3 herbs that are actually yellow in color; Rhubarb, skullcap root, and phellodendrom bark.

When your partner comes home from work having smashed his hand between a t-post and very large heavy thing! Luckily no broken bones but tons of swelling. And, he totally knew how excited I was going to be to help it heal up!! That's 💚 right there.
The first picture is of his hand tonight, chilling with a poultice of San Huang San and Trauma Liniment to clear heat, alleviate pain and move fluids and blood. This is my favorite first stage trauma formulation, and while I usually just use San Huang San (3 Yellow Powder) as a salve in a base of sesame oil + beeswax I decided to try something new as I had a lot of chunkier herb powder. Notice you can actually see his knuckles in the first photo.
2nd and 3rd photos are of his hand 2 days ago after the accidental smashing. It was so swollen, tender and really painful. I did acupuncture around the injured area (not in it, everrrrr) and bled his fingertips to help move blood stagnation and clear heat. We let his hand sit with the poultice for 20 minutes and afterwards the swelling was down at least 50% and he could move his fingers. Flash forward two days and it's looking pretty dang good! I 💛 first stage injuries!! (When they're not serious and everyone's fine!) #acupuncture #sanhuangsan #firststagetrauma #softtissuedamage #smashandmash #constructionworker #chineseherbs #plantmedicine #acupuncturist #thisislife

Turned a corner already, feeling like meself again! So grateful! Herbal ice is crazy magic. Shiatsu too no doubt. Able to do Dao Yin practice which was delightful as well. Slept almost comfortably the past two nights wrapped in herbal ice, dressed in gauzey pads. #sanhuangsan #chineseherbal #lineaments #savedme #shiatsuismagic #chinesemedicine #worththeeffort #gratitude #healingartist #peaceandlove

Finished san huang san powder ready to have egg whites, shea butter or green tea added for a final poultice. The three huangs referred to in the name are huang qin , da huang and huang bai. These three also give it the rich mustard color with saffron and zhi zi adding a deeper red hue to the mix. Da huang gives it a mustard like scent too. #nwfapdx #sanhuangsan #sportsmedicine #chinesemedicine #acupuncture #herbalmedicine #botanicalmedicine #poultices #sportsinjuries

Bucket full of herbs waiting to be ground into herbal "ice" powder. I had a sweet little helper too! Grateful for generous friends who shared their industrial grinder with me! #acupuncture #chinesemedicine #sanhuangsan #sportsmedicine #nwfapdx

So much fun this evening grinding these beautiful herbs into an "ice" powder for acute sprains and strains! These "cold" herbs are applied to inflamed injuries to help reduce swelling and move fluids. They are used in lieu of actual ice which is thought to create stagnation in the area. #acupuncture #chinesemedicine #herbalmedicine #sportsmedicine #botanicalmedicine #nwfapdx #sanhuangsan #sportsinjuries #chinesemedicineworks #feelbetter

I'm so pleased with our new San Huang San labels! We even included a QR code that links to a video demonstrating its application. We'll have 2 and 4 oz bags of the powder available to mix with egg white, water or whatever you prefer. Only at @chinaherbco #sanhuangsan #injury #sports #pain #chineseherbs

H E R B A L • I C E • also known as San Huang San ❄️ Finally back in stock, this is an important formulation for injuries to soft tissue. The herbs in this formulation strongly clear heat, move Qi, blood and fluids 💦

This is one of my desert island salves!!! 🏝 seriously!! Sprains, strains, pulled + torn muscles, pimples......I've used it successfully for all of these things and it's amazing. I pack it on all of our hiking and camping trips because shit happens.
I like to apply it in a thick gooey layer with a wrap for a couple days until most of the swelling is gone and follow with our Trauma Liniment. Both of these formulations encourage the body's natural healing processes and while they are considered cold by herbalism standards, they don't slow the healing process like ice does.
Curious??? Google San Huang San, there are some really great articles floating around (of course, there's one on our blog too!!!) and grab a jar for your summer adventures!! #herbalism #chineseherbs #sportsmedicine #firststagetrauma #sprains #strains #muscletearssuck #naturalhealing #yourbodysgotthis #smallbatch #plantmedicine #madeiniowa #handcrafted #decorah #sanhuangsan
