Resinall K is a blood-vitalizing formula for the treatment of traumatic injuries. Many of the ingredients depend on resinous compounds for their analgesic and healing effects. Dragon's blood (xue jie) treats hemorrhage and pain. Catechu (er cha) is cool and astringent. It assists Dragon's blood in stopping bleeding and generating new tissue. Frankincense (ru xiang) and myrrh (mo yao) are especially useful for damaged tissues. Carthamus (hong hua) invigorates blood. Tinctures containing carthamus are clinically used in China to treat musculoskeletal trauma. Corydalis (yan hu suo) relieves stagnant Qi and is indicated for pain due to blood stasis and traumatic injury. This is important as trauma can cause the Qi to become stagnant. It is considered a strong herbal analgesic. Borneol (bing pian) opens up the channels. The alcohol serves a traditional function in an injury formula to bring the effects of the herbs strongly to the exterior. The liquid form of Resinall K provides rapid administration and easy absorption. Because the resins have strong antiseptic action against bacteria and fungi, topical application of the formula is useful in a broad spectrum of skin disorders. The original formula Qi Li San contains cinnabar (zhu sha), a toxic mercury compound, and musk (she xiang), which is a prohibited substance in the US: therefore Health Concerns has made necessary modifications.

For more than a decade, Health Concerns has been in the forefront of research in herbal medicine, and was the first company to manufacture herbal products in the United States for practitioners. Its founder, Andrew Gaeddert, is an herbalist, lecturer, author of numerous books on herbal medicine, and committed to improving community health. He assisted in the development of clinical trials with HIV patients in 1992, and has been on the protocol team of a study to investigate the effects of Chinese herbs on chronic diarrhea, and an anemia study sponsored by the NIH Office of Alternative Medicine.
Health Concerns formulas are created on the basis of Traditional Chinese Medicine and modern biochemistry and developed by experienced practitioners such as Mr. Gaeddert, Dr. Fong, and Misha Cohen. They are targeted to treat specific disorders, and manufactured under strict quality control. All are continually tested to ensure optimum effectiveness, potency, and maximum bioavailability.
