101 Ways to Use Evil Bone Water

Evil Bone Water (EBW) is one of our best sellers in the clinic for many very good reasons!

According to the classical name, Zheng Gu Shui, (Zhèng Gǔ Shuǐ; 正骨水) the formula is called “Mend the Bones Water”, highlighting its use for soothing pain and speeding the healing of fractured and bruised bones. But wait…

There’s more:

  • Random bruise? Watch it fade faster and with less pain with a daily spritz or two of EBW; even those frustrating bruises on the hands and arms that plague our elderly patients. 
  • Nausea in early pregnancy? Many of our mothers-to-be swear by a spritz of EBW on the wrists (ala perfume) to soothe a queasy belly—even in severe cases. (This has also helped patients with post-chemo nausea)
  • Speaking of pregnancy—post-partum aches, episiotomy sites, and post-epidural pain have all responded well to EBW—and it’s safe in all stages of pregnancy.
  • Chest congestion? Move over store-bought “vapor rubs”! A liberal application of EBW to the chest helps open airways (we love to spritz some on our palms and inhale to clear stubborn nasal passages).
  • Speaking of noses—Several patients credit a gentle application of EBW with a cotton swab below each nostril with helping to return their post-COVID sense of smell to normal.
  • Ouch! Got a cut? If you don’t mind a brief sting, EBW disinfects and speeds the healing of minor cuts—and actually somewhat numbs the cut after application. This stuff makes paper cuts no big deal!
  • Burned yourself on that hot stove? Take the sting out and help it heal with some EBW if you don’t have some of our Shiunko burn cream on hand. Note: If it’s a serious burn see your provider first!
  • Arthritis? Apply liberally for best results.
  • Muscle aches? EBW isn’t just for the bones; it soothes sore muscles as well.
  • Sprain an ankle? Yup, you guessed it—lots of EBW.
  • Headaches? Tension headaches fade faster with a spritz of EBW to the back of the neck, and temporal headaches can be soothed with a little rubbed into the temples in many cases.
  • Neuropathy? Yes, that too—any kind of body pain is alleviated by EBW.

I have all of these!!! Can I bathe in it?  

  • Yes, actually—several of our patients and staff who have taken a tumble added 2 TBSP EBW to a warm tub along with Epsom salts and soaked away the soreness. Please note—test EBW on your skin first before jumping into this remedy. For focused pain, it does work best to apply it directly where the pain is.

Is it just for humans?

  • It is safe for dogs, horses, and even chickens (but not recommended for our feline friends). I have used it on multiple horse wounds, a tendon strain, a partially detached chick beak (which reattached and healed quickly), as well as to quickly dry up the sebaceous cysts my dog is prone to—so they don’t fester and result in another vet trip to remove them. He much prefers this over soaking in the medicated shampoo the vet prescribed, and it works better and is easier for me!  Once again, the highly aromatic herbs in EBW are not suitable for use on cats but you can use it around cats safely. 

It sounds great! What’s the downside?

  • Do not use it near your favorite white or light-colored fabric—it will most likely stain!
  • Do not rub your eyes after applying to (or with) your hands—you will not go blind or damage your eyes, but you will probably cry a bit.
  • If using in sensitive areas—use a cotton swab and always test a small area first. If the sensation is too intense, flush with lukewarm water. You can dilute it in water in a separate bottle to reach an acceptable level of sensation when using for episiotomy sites or similar injuries.
  • If you have sensitive skin, patch test a small amount with a cotton swab on the arm and wait 24 hours to see how you react.

Ok, so it’s not quite 101 ways, but Evil Bone Water is a wonderfully useful topical to have in your first aid kit. I keep a bottle in every car, at the barn, in my husband's shop (he’s a mechanic) and the patient feedback has been overwhelmingly positive! Several buy it by the case to share with their friends and family! So on the “List of things I wouldn’t want to be on a deserted island without”, this one is definitely in the top 5!

Evil Bone Water is available for purchase in our clinic, and online here!

Have an Evil Bone Water success story? We’d love to hear about it!

CBD is a pretty hot herbal product these days—well-known for its properties of improving sleep, relieving pain, and easing anxiety. I find that in these cases its effectiveness can vary widely between people. Some need a tincture over a capsule, some need a very low dose, while others a much higher dose (and in some cases where the hemp for the CBD was grown makes a huge difference!) For this reason, finding the product that works best for you can sometimes be a bit frustrating (not to mention expensive!) when those early tries fail. And for a few people, it just doesn’t seem to work well for them in any form. However, there is one area where I feel CBD deserves recognition as a go-to supplement to be included in the treatment plan-bone fractures and osteoporosis/osteopenia!

It turns out that CBD dramatically increased activity in healing bone and resulted in healed fracture sites that were harder than the original bone and shorter healing times. In other studies, it was shown to increase activity in the bone and resulted in increased bone volume. The CB1 & 2 receptors seem to be most involved in the process and most encouraging is the bone remodeling effect is not linked in any way to THC so hemp is a safe and effective way to help boost bone activity.

CBD, along with other measures—can help keep our bones healthy!

It’s also important to make sure the body has the building blocks to keep those bones healthy. Our bones are not static like a dried-out skeleton—they are living tissue that replaces itself about every 10 years. In addition to providing the nutrients for healthy bones, exercise is crucial to maintaining healthy bones. As outlined by the Surgeon’s General Office, these are some key components of bone health

  • Calcium has been singled out as a major public health concern today because it is critically important to bone health. The average American consumes levels of calcium that are far below the recommended amount for optimal bone health. The right form of calcium makes a difference along with providing related trace minerals for bone health. In addition to foods high in calcium like dairy products, leafy greens, broccoli, and sardines, other cruciferous veggies like cauliflower help the calcium get better absorbed by the bones. For those who won’t or don’t eat their veggies, supplements like Standard Process Cruciferous Complete are an essential part of any bone support program.
  • Vitamin D is important for good bone health because it aids in the absorption and utilization of calcium. Besides natural sunlight and foods high in D like sardines, salmon, cod liver oil, and egg yolks, good supplemental D3 may be needed.
  • Physical activity is essential for bone health throughout life. It helps to increase or preserve bone mass and to reduce the risk of falling. All types of physical activity can contribute to bone health, albeit in different ways. Weight-bearing exercises seem to be measurably beneficial, along with yoga and tai chi.
  • Maintaining healthy body weight is important for bone health throughout life. Being underweight raises the risk of fracture and bone loss. Weight loss is associated with bone loss as well, although adequate diet and physical activity may reduce this loss.
  • Smoking and heavy alcohol use can reduce bone mass and increase fracture risk and should be avoided for a variety of health reasons. 

So how much CBD is needed to help improve bone health? This is where the research gets a little unclear, but 25mg per day orally is a safe dosage range to start with and then increase from there. As long as there are no digestive problems it’s safe to go as high as 50mg per day for long-term use. 

**Disclaimer: While CBD products are less than .3% THC some people do not metabolize THC well and it can accumulate in the body with regular use of CBD products—and can result in a positive drug test! If you are subject to drug testing, I do not recommend using CBD products without written approval from whoever is requiring the testing. 

We carry a variety of CBD products for patients to try and I have a protocol for bone healing on Fullscript with some of my favorite non-CBD bone support products for ease of ordering!

A frequent question we get in the clinic is “Can you get me off my diabetes medicine?" The simple answer is “no”.  Acupuncture and herbs alone are potent allies in healing, but especially with diabetes, the choices you make each day have far more impact than anything anyone can give you. The more complete answer is “it depends”: 

  • on how long you have been taking medication for diabetes 
  • if that medication includes insulin or not AND most importantly,
  • how willing you are to make changes in your diet and lifestyle 

It is also important to know that we cannot make changes to prescription medications, so it’s important to work with your doctor as well as your acupuncturist when you decide that you are ready to make the changes you need for better health.  

So why try acupuncture and TCM for diabetes?  

  • Acupuncture helps regulate metabolism, pancreatic function, and  blood sugar levels1. There is a growing body of research into the mechanism of action behind the stimulation of points classically indicated for diabetes showing measurable changes in hormone levels, gastric function, and peripheral circulation2. Many of our patients report using less insulin while undergoing acupuncture for other reasons, even when the treatment of diabetes isn’t the primary focus.
  • Neuropathy is one of the most felt and debilitating aspects of uncontrolled diabetes—and acupuncture is one of the best treatments for neuropathy—not only providing pain relief but helping the nerves and surrounding tissues to repair themselves in many cases3.

Acupuncture and herbal medicine are not a “one-size fits all” treatment approach—each patient is unique and we chose our specific formulas and acupuncture points for each patient based on the presentation of the entire patient; not just a set cookie-cutter treatment. As a result, not only do we see the diabetes symptoms improve, the patient experiences better health overall. By choosing the right approach for each patient we avoid the spiral of “take this medication for this, and this medication for that, and this medication for the side effects of the first medication and yet another medication for the side effects of the second medication….” that so many patients experience.

Managing Diabetes IS possible—with the right lifestyle changes and supportive treatments!

Now as to the pesky diet and exercise thing:

If you continue to overload your body with too much of the wrong foods and not enough of the right exercise—even the best treatments and formulas, plus the medications your doctor prescribes—won’t be enough to keep the disease from progressing!

I highly recommend anyone who has diabetes or even a risk factor for diabetes (which is pretty much everyone) read “Why We Get Sick” by B. Bikman.  It’s a great book based on solid research that helps you understand what happens with diabetes and more importantly, what you can do to change it. If you need help getting off the sugar, we have amazing and compassionate coaching and nutrition partners who can help you!

It’s that time of year again! That’s right, at 2:00 am on Sunday, November 6th it will be time to dial our clocks back an hour as daylight savings time ends. Some of us can’t wait to fit in that extra hour of coveted sleep, while the rest of us are wondering what kind of cruel joke the universe is playing by completely throwing off our internal clocks. 

Whether we’re “springing back” or “falling forward”, the seasonal time changes can cause quite the disconnect between your body’s internal clock and your typical daily schedule. Sunlight helps to govern the physiological cues (or circadian rhythm) that tell your body when to sleep and when to wake up. Our sleep cycles and circadian rhythm can easily become disrupted by the change in daylight hours. These disruptions can affect much more than sleep—think mood, metabolism and weight loss, cardiovascular health, and alertness. With a few time-change survival tips for keeping your sleep schedule intact, you can escape the season unscathed: 

  1. Make an extra effort to be well rested in the week approaching the time change.  As with most things in life, a little extra rest can help you feel more prepared. Try going to bed 15-20 minutes earlier than usual the week before the time changes. This should help you feel less of a crash when it begins getting darker earlier. Melatonin can help ease this change as well; usually just for a couple of weeks after the time change is enough.
  2. Make a few small adjustments to your diet. Anything related to adjusting your diet can seem daunting, but don’t worry! We’re not asking you to make a major change here, but just enough to make it easier to fall asleep. Heavy digestive processes can disrupt your sleep quality, so try having your last meal of the day 3-4 hours before bedtime. Choose a light, healthy snack if you find it hard to fall asleep without eating something before bed. It is also important to consider caffeine and alcohol intake. These are both rather detrimental to quality sleep, so if you are going to consume either of the two, try to cut it off 4-6 hours before bed. Extra magnesium in your diet will help with sleep quality—if you can’t get enough from food, a good quality supplement can help.
  3. Put a curfew on your electronics! Electronic devices such as computers, smartphones, TVs, and tablets can wreak havoc on your internal clock. The blue light emitted from these devices mimics sunlight, which can further throw off our circadian rhythm by making us feel more alert and suppressing melatonin production. You’ll sleep more soundly by turning your devices off or placing them in another room while you sleep. If you MUST have devices on or nearby, try to not use them an hour before bed, or at the very least consider blue light-blocking glasses or a blue light-blocking app. 
  4. Stick to your schedule. Consistency in your work, eating, social, and sleep schedule is important in general, but it can also help you adjust more easily to the time change. It may take a few days to adjust, but overall you’ll feel less burdened by the shift in daylight hours.
  5. Don’t forget to squeeze in a little “me time”. Self-care should be a priority at all times of the year, but with the holidays approaching along with the shifts we experience during the time change, it’s doubly important. Self-care can be whatever feels the best to you: a hot bath, time with friends, exercise, or even a massage or acupuncture appointment. Taking good care of yourself can help you to take these changes in stride. 

It’s easy and rather normal to feel “a little off” as our bodies and internal clocks adjust to fewer daylight hours, but it’s easy to get back into the swing of things! Luckily, most folks find it easier to adjust to the shorter days of fall and winter than to the longer days of spring and summer. Remember these easy tips for keeping your sleep cycle in check and on the mend! And don’t forget: acupuncture is an excellent way to bring the body back to homeostasis, improve your quality of sleep, and boost your mood. If you need further help sleeping soundly and adjusting to the upcoming hustle and bustle, we’re here to help!

If you’ve spent any time around the Raja offices, you’ve probably met “Lowkey”—the sweet German Shepherd who helps me in so many ways; it won’t come as a surprise that pets are family around our house. But did you know that the animals who share our space provide more than just companionship? Animals have innate abilities to sense and communicate when we don’t feel well (there are loads of stories with dogs, cats, and other animals alerting their owners to impending seizures, heart attacks, and more!) Many times people think I can read minds—because I come to check on them when they are having a difficult time during treatment at just the right time—but the truth is quite often that adorable dog of mine has woken from a dead sleep to alert me to the issue. I don’t know how he knows and I’m ok with him keeping the secret, as long as he keeps helping me help others! 

In addition, having pets is linked to reduced rates of depression and anxiety—so much so that emotional support animals are now widely accepted. Even the CDC says “Regular walking or playing with pets can decrease blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and triglyceride levels.”1 Other studies have shown how having pets reduces cortisol levels. Furthermore, those pets of ours keep us more active and give us a reason to go outside and more even when the weather isn’t perfect.

I am blessed to work with a variety of animals who share their healing gifts with others—from our herd of horses and mini donkey to our dogs, and even the barn cats work their magic to help bring smiles to those who visit. Horses in particular can regulate the coherence of our heart rhythm and stress response just by being near us. The Heart Math Institute has some fascinating research on this. Cats have a unique “superpower” in their purr. “A cat purrs within a range of 20-140 Hz which is known to be medically therapeutic for illnesses in humans. A cat's purr can not only lower stress it can also help labored breathing, lower blood pressure, help heal infections, and even heal bones.”2

Animals of all kinds can bring joy into our lives, even the slithery and skittering kinds like snakes & lizards. They may not be for everyone (let’s face it—not everyone is a cat or dog lover), but if they brighten your day then that’s all that matters

Jenny-Marie Greenough

As responsible human stewards of our animal friends, it’s important to remember that their health comes with unique concerns based on nutritional, environmental, and mental needs. Luckily for our horses, dogs & cats, there are a variety of supplements and herbal medicines to help keep them feeling their best! Some of my favorite products are:

  • 100X Equine Joint Supplements (the dogs, horses, and myself all feel better with this one!) (available for purchase in our office)
  • Standard Process Products
  • Dynamite Products for nutritional support and select conditions, homeopathic, and even East Asian Medicines. 
  • We also offer consultations to help select the best possible products for your animal friends!

For those of you with dogs—we’ve got a photo contest running to win a goodie basket for your best bud! So bring out the photos and let’s see those smiling furry faces!

One question we hear from patients quite often is, “If I’m getting acupuncture, is it ok to see the chiropractor?” or vice versa. Chiropractic care and acupuncture are actually rather complementary to one another! In fact, we have some exciting news: Beginning October 2022, we will have chiropractic care available at our Magnolia location with Dr. Nowelle Altman-Sigman!

Chiropractic care is a manual, hands-on treatment that focuses on correcting misalignments of the joints, especially those of the spinal column. This is a viable treatment for those experiencing neck, back, or joint pain and for those suffering from headaches and neuromusculoskeletal problems. Chiropractic treatments are an effective, non-invasive and holistic approach to many ailments, providing pain relief and in many cases, relief from further issues stemming from blockages in the body caused by misalignment. Often, patients of chiropractic care also note improvements in quality of sleep, digestion, energy levels, and even mood. 

Acupuncture is an entirely different modality—using fine, sterile needles inserted at specific anatomical points on the body. While acupuncture treats a wide range of ailments by promoting the body’s natural healing abilities, releasing feel-good endorphins and restoring the body to homeostasis, it does have commonalities with chiropractic care. Both are holistic, drug-free options for care with a patient-centered approach that promotes natural healing and optimal health. Acupuncture and chiropractic care both share the objective of balancing the body’s structure and its support systems. 

When both acupuncture and chiropractic treatments are combined, you can expect to see more improvement over less time. While a chiropractic adjustment corrects the body’s structure and eliminates blockages in the body caused by misalignment, acupuncture further relaxes the muscles, reduces pain and inflammation, and assists the flow of energy through the body where these blockages once existed; more importantly, it helps the body adapt to and maintain its corrected structure.  

These two treatments working together offer an unmatched, supportive and holistic approach to pain relief. If you’d like to incorporate chiropractic care into your acupuncture routine we will begin offering treatments with Nowelle Altman-Sigman, DC starting October 2022! 

She will be available on Wednesdays at our Magnolia location and we couldn’t be more excited! Along with chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Nowelle Altman-Sigman will also offer craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, and functional medicine. For further information or to be added to her waitlist, call our office at 270-506-3853, and stay tuned to our website for more updates!

One of the things people don’t tend to think of when they think of acupuncture is eye issues. After all, most of the time, except for treating perhaps pinkeye, even your general practitioner is going to send you to a specialist for eye issues. Less well known is how acupuncture can be beneficial for your eye health.

So what is acupuncture good for? As with many other chronic diseases, acupuncture can slow the progression of glaucoma1, macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa2 and cataracts3. We have several case studies of patients needing fewer injections to manage their glaucoma after starting acupuncture—and more importantly a brief acupuncture session after the injections completely eliminated the post injection pain shortening the recovery from 1-2 days of downtime due to pain to just a couple of hours. 

Acupuncture also enhances muscle function—even the small muscles of the eyes—so even things like slower responses to changing light levels that happen with age can be reduced with acupuncture. It also increases circulation to the eyes, speeding recovery after procedures like retinal repairs and cataract removal. Acupuncture can even help reduce chronically dry eyes!

Nutrients from healthy foods are essential!

As with anything we treat, results are best when the body gets the nutrients it needs for optimal performance and the eyes have special needs. Vitamin A supports the light receptors in the eye and protects moisture levels4. Vitamin A is found in dairy, fish and meat, especially liver. Good non-animal food sources of vitamin A include carrots, sweet potatoes, carrots, melons, peppers, apricots, nectarines, tomatoes, mangoes and corn. It is also present in spinach, peas, parsley, pistachios, kale, broccoli, and Swiss chard, where green chlorophyll masks the carotenoid pigment. Antioxidants like lutein, zeaxanthin, and lycopene are also important for eye health and are found in many of the same foods. 

While vitamin A is essential, too much is also dangerous. If you eat these foods regularly it is unlikely you need to supplement vitamin A. Still, there may be some benefits to supplementing lutein, zeaxanthin, and lycopene if you are having issues with eye health. Some of my most commonly recommended supplements for eye health can be found on Fullscript—but as always, we recommend speaking to your health care provider before starting any new supplements.

We take great pride in the products we use and offer for sale in our clinic. We make sure to select high-quality products that we test and use ourselves, and we love sharing our favorites with you! It’s safe to say that Evil Bone Water ranks in the top 5 products we love and use the most. We keep a bottle in each treatment room, and more than likely if you’ve been to our clinic for anything pain related, we’ve probably recommended that you take home a bottle or likely even applied it to the affected area during your treatment. Here’s what a few of our patients and practitioners have to say about why they love Evil Bone Water: 

“Evil Bone Water is my go-to pain reliever. Great for muscle strains, joint pain, bruises, and even cuts—I always keep a bottle handy and recommend this to my clients who struggle with chronic or acute pain.”

- K.K

“I love using Evil Bone Water! It works great for muscle pain and strain. A few sprays on my neck, shoulders, and back every morning, and before bed provides so much relief. It’s great to use before and after exercise and on long trips. I always have it on hand.”

L.M.

“My daughter purchased a bottle of this for me, and I’m so glad she did. I’ve been dealing with back and shoulder pain and multiple surgeries over the past twenty-plus years. This is the best topical product for pain I’ve ever tried, and I’m pretty sure I’ve tried everything—even prescription strength. It really helps my range of motion, too.”

F.S.

“It eases pain quickly on sore muscles and joints!”

T.M.

“Honestly, this is better than anything else I’ve ever used. Things like Icy Hot and stuff you get at the drug store usually burn a lot more and don't work nearly as well. Instant relief for my knee pain! I’ll be keeping this in my gym bag."

T.O.

“ Evil Bone Water is a staple,  a must-have for the household. I love using it for aches, muscle tiredness, and any bump or bruise me or my kids may get! Love it!".

N.P.

“When my chest feels congested, I apply a couple sprays of this and it works wonders! Dries quickly, smells great, and it helps me feel like I can breathe again. I even put a little in the diffuser sometimes.”

J.H

“I have a bottle in my medicine cabinet for pain, and in the hot and humid weather, I keep a bottle by my back door too. It’s excellent for arthritis pain so I use it on inflamed or painful joints before bed or if I’ll be in the car for a while to prevent stiffness, but with camphor and menthol as ingredients it also makes a fantastic bug repellent.”

M.S.
Evil Bone Water was crafted to address pains, aches, and skin conditions quickly and without the side effects of traditional pain killers.

These are just a few examples of why we love Evil Bone Water so much!  The 500-year-old formula is made in small batches with imperial-grade ingredients (and lots of love!) by Saint Apothecary. It increases circulation, reduces pain and inflammation, and as these folks pointed out is even great for easing chest congestion and keeping bugs away! There’s a reason we all keep this in our first aid kits! Remember, between now and August 20th, 2022, we are offering a free Hand Sanitizer (another excellent formula by Saint Apothecary) if you mix and match any three items from our first aid kit promo!

  • Microgard - Imperial grade herbs with no additives or preservatives that help to reduce symptoms of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, heartburn, abdominal pain or cramping, abdominal discomfort, bloating, food sensitivities, indigestion, and hangover. This is excellent to have on hand for road trips when eating properly isn’t always convenient. 
  • Spring Wind Burn Cream - A favorite of JennyMarie—this is great for minor burns and sunburn. It’s surprisingly fast-acting and effective. We find it especially handy to keep a jar next to the stove! 
  • Yunnan Baiyao Plasters - Excellent for cuts and scrapes, these plasters can be applied directly to stop bleeding. Also helpful for bruises, stasis pain, and rheumatic pain. 
  • Honey Loquat Candies - We always keep a tin of these in each of our treatment rooms and at each of our desks. Scratchy throats are never convenient, and they always sneak up when you’re least expecting it. These candies have a hard minty shell, with a soft syrup center of blended herbs that make a fantastic throat soother
  • Migraine Roller - This essential oil blend is made by our very own Certified Aromatherapist, Kelly Kohler, LMT. It’s a favorite among patients, and ourselves, as it provides quick relief and takes seconds to apply. Great for those days when you can’t let an unexpected migraine slow you down.
