The Chinese Herb E Zhu is the dried rhizome of curcuma zedoaria (aka zedoary—Curcuma zedoaria Rosc.; and 2 others depending on the region in China). The zedoary plant itself is a relative of turmeric and ginger—originally native to India, it is now naturalized to most of Asia/Southeast Asia (and beyond).

Vinegar-frying this herb enhances its potency in breaking stasis and relieving pain.

Minimizes the bleeding
I’m using Dissolve Mass with Yunnan Baiyao and bleeding is intermittent. My dog has bladder cancer and not a “bleeding” cancer but the tumor does produce blood. Once I added Disolve Mass the blood discharge stopped and is now infrequent. I’ve been using it for several months and will continue to do so.
I’m taking this extract
daily.The mass is the same but I am continuing to use this and I will be ordering more.Thank you so much.
Was hopeful, but did not appear to work for my dog
My dog had a rapidly growing mass so I tried this product. She is only 3 lbs I gave her .25 ml 3 times a day, every single day for around a month. The mass was maybe the size of a golf ball when we started the product however it continued to grow rapidly with no signs of shrinking. Ultimately it got so big surgery became the safest and fastest way to relieve my baby of that mass. I really really wanted this to work…. but unfortunately I cannot say that it did. For additional reference my dogs mass was just under the skin not attached to anything under her skin and located on her abdomen. It grow to about the size of a tennis ball (a little bigger actually) which was bigger than her head. After getting it aspirated they were only able to tell me it showed signs of being a cyst that was made of tissue and only pockets of fluid but was non cancerous. We Ultimately got it surgically removed. She is currently being a good girl and recovering very well . Once removed they weighted the mass and it was 1 lb that’s almost half the weight of my dog.
The product gets 3 stars because it shipped fast and I’m grateful that this formula is avaliable because I’m sure it will help someone. Maybe it tried to help but couldn’t beat the rapidly growing cells… Idk
