A good Dit Da Jow must have herbs to achieve these effects: control bleeding of a contusion
(bruise), dispel blood stasis, invigorate blood circulation, act as an analgesic (reduce pain), move
chi in the channels, reduce swelling and heal bone fractures.

Here is a formula that does the above:

Sanguis draconis (xue jie) 15 grams


Carthamus tinctorii (flos) (Hong Hua)10 gms
Gummi olibanum (ru xiang)15 gms
Myrrha (mo yao) 15 gms
Borneol (bing pian) 3 gms
Pyritum (zi ran tong) 15 gms
Acacua seu Uncaria (er cha) 5 gms
Radix Pseudoginseng(San Qi) 8gms

You can get all of these herbs in any Chinatown herb store.
I use a special formula which has additional herbs that are only grown by myself and not found in
the stores, and is better than the above formula. But the above formula will work well for most
injuries.

Put the herbs in a ceramic pot with enough water to cover the herbs. Bring to a hard boil
(covered) for 5 minutes and then let stand for 24 hours. Put hte herbs and liquid into a wide
mouth glass jar and pour in strong alcohol (ratio of alcohol to the boiled water/herb decoction
should be 90% alcohol 10% decoction). Let stand in a dark warm place for several weeks before
using. Do not store in sunlight and keep tightly capped.

Use of any Dit Da Jow must be accompanied by proper massage and reduction technique to the
injured area for it to work well. For severe swelling from an injury, apply the jow with very light
massage and then ice in the first 24 hours. After that use massage and jow, no ice. When the
swelling has subsided, use jow, massage, a hot compress to the area and then more jow and
massage.

This formula can also be used for any of the iron gongs training such as iron palm.

Do not take the jow internally and keep it out of your eyes and away from sensitive skin areas (if
you know what I mean!)
