I've been using homeopathic arnica, rhus and ruta. I am a total believer. I dropped a 35# weight on my finger on Friday, thought I broke it, and it is barely even bruised right now. No ice, no jow, nothing but these sugar pills that supposedly don't work. I'm okay with it being placebo, because it's such an inexpensive and effective placebo, if that's what it is.

There is also a cheaper version of dit da called Zheng Gu Shui. Pretty much the same thing only less potent but much cheaper.

I've used it but I don't think it works as well. The best jow I ever found is only sold through the Chicago College of Healing Arts. It is called Dr. Wu's liniment oil. The jow I use locally is Five Photo Brand First Aid Antiseptic. It's not bad. I was also prescribed some pills by an acupuncturist that are considered internal jow. They made me very sick and did not help much.
