Why Avoid broad bean, fish, sour cold food taking Yunnan Baiyao


Today, we talking about why Avoid broad bean, fish, and sour, cold food after taking Yunnan Baiyao


Yunnan Baiyao (powder, capsules, tincture and other oral products) instructions note a column clearly pointed out: Avoid broad bean, fish, and sour, cold food within one day after administration 


Fish food is often rich in histamine, which can lead to increased vascular permeability, blood vessel dilatation and congestion, and easily lead to allergic reactions. From the point of view of traditional Chinese medicine, Acid cold food is easy to stomach damage, and is not conducive to the role of drugs and the prognosis of diseases. Yunnan Baiyao has the functions of removing blood stasis, stopping bleeding, activating blood circulation, relieving pain, detoxifying and detumescence. The composition is the herbs of warming the meridian and dispersing the cold, activating blood and removing blood stasis, so Yunnan Baiyao asks for taking with liquor or warm water usually. But acid convergence, cold stagnation.so acid, cold food will affect the efficacy of Yunnan Baiyao, delay the disease.


So why should Yunnan Baiyao specially label "avoid eating broad bean"?


TCM believes that broad bean is sweet, gentle, dispel spleen dampness, astringent essence, tonifying kidney and improving eyesight, strengthening muscles and bones, purge blood and cooling blood, there is no obvious unsuitable use.


Moreover, if broad beans really contribute to the development of diseases, why are most Chinese herb not clearly labeled "bogey broad bean"? 

However, it is worth mentioning that not everyone is suitable for eating broad beans. Clinically, there is a disease called hereditary glucose -6- phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency, commonly known as "broad bean disease". Once these people eat broad beans, it is easy to cause a large number of red blood cells to be destroyed and acute hemolytic anemia. The disease is highly hereditary and has a high incidence. 


The reason why Yunnan Baiyao is not allowed to take broad Bean is not clear. There is another possibility. It is possible to avoid the source of broad Bean in clinical practice.

Therefore, we usually think that fish and broad bean may accelerate the allergic reaction of Yunnan Baiyao, while acid cold food will affect the absorption of Yunnan Baiyao.


The pure personal view above, We suggest that Avoid broad bean, fish, and sour, cold food during the use of Yunnan Baiyao.
