Wan Ton will help you relax so that you are open to stimulation. It can untangle the knots that keep things from flowing in a pleasurable way.
Basic Way: Take two capsules three times a day.
Another Way: Throw out the notion that a printed set of directions will provide the exact answer. Consider size, constitution, timing, and other factors affecting each unique person. The suggested maximum amount per day is 12 capsules. More is not better; slow, gradual use (2 capsules 3x a day) of Wan Ton can bring the desired result.
When the process is complete you will feel more passion and enthusiasm.

Reservoir of Relaxation
It’s a tangled web we weave. As with any web, the silk, gossamer or thread is often of our own making. We’re both the prey and the trap at the same time. Wan Ton is an original combination of twenty-one Chinese herbs that will help you relax so that you are freed up to allow things to flow in a pleasurable way.
Women don’t have a monopoly on care-taking but often find themselves supporting others while ignoring their most basic needs. Menopausal and post-menopausal women face new challenges in their sex lives that make it difficult to express passion when they are caught in (another) new web of altered roles, changing chemistry and the stresses of life.
Of course, it’s not only menopausal women who struggle with issues of passion. As one male user of the formula said, “Wan Ton has helped me reach new heights in pursuing my hobbies, as well as providing the additional stimulation my girlfriend and I were seeking.” Both sexes can benefit from lightening up around sexual activity. Normal stresses can interrupt the dance of romance, no matter our age.
How do you go about untangling this mass of knots? If you pull on a string that is part of a knotted ball, it may loosen somewhat while concurrently tightening in another place. One way the Chinese doctor talks about this is as “coursing the Liver chi.” The goal is to allow a free and smooth flow of energy.
Sex is a bit more complicated than just straight stimulation. Wan Ton is involved in unraveling the perceived stresses that surround pleasurable sexual activity. The formula is based on the idea that if we relax about the day-to-day stress, we will relax into our passion. Wan Ton disentangles what the Chinese call the knotted aspects of our lives. The formula deals with the relaxation that must come before passion. It is the Yin before the fullest expression of the Yang or the blank sheet of paper before a painting takes form.
Western medicine has tried to address this consistent with its philosophy. Replacement is their key to unlocking sexuality in older women and increasing blood flow and encouraging smooth muscle relaxation is used to stimulate older men. Pink pill? Blue pill? As long-time users of the OHCO formulas know, there is another way.
The Chinese medical approach allows us to reach way down into our Root, to find the deepest levels of ease and access to our reservoir of relaxation. Tightness and attachment to issues are then released by the Liver. Once this is done, passion and love will follow. The Wan Ton formula does this naturally by settling our energy and causing us to embrace peace which in turn serves us to be more productive and energetic.

There is a cornstarch excipient that is used to bind the formula together. It is a very, very small amount. The gelatin capsules are bovine from the hide of grass-fed cows raised in Brazil. The powder version of this formula is vegetarian.
The formulas are gluten free (NO wheat [including kamut and spelt], barley, rye, and triticale, as well as the use of gluten as a food additive in the form of a flavoring, stabilizing or thickening agent).
Licorice is used primarily as a servant ingredient in Cold Snap, Stomach Chi, and OHCO-Motion . As described in Bensky and Gamble's Materia Medica, licorice "moderates and harmonizes the characteristics of other herbs: by virtue of its sweet, neutral and moderating characteristics. This herb moderates hot and cold herbs and makes violent herbs more gentle. Because it is said to enter all twelve Primary Channels, it can lead and conduct other herbs into the Channels."
The licorice root is long and cylindrical (one to two and one-half centimeters in diameter) and usually without branches. Its appearance is reddish or earth brown with pronounced wrinkles or furrows and transverse small pores on the surface. The pieces used in preparing the teas are transverse slices about two millimeters thick. The best quality roots are sweet and rich in starch. People find it a pleasing addition to the odor and taste of the powders. It is non toxic.
Beyond its role as a servant herb in Cold Snap, it is used for either Heat or Cold conditions in the Lungs and is effective for helping to control coughing and wheezing. It has a role in boosting righteous chi. In Stomach Chi, licorice will smooth digestive tract ulcers and aid in fighting food poisoning by fortifying the Stomach and Spleen channels. In OHCO-Motion it acts to relieve pain and reduce contraction.
The ingredients of these formulas have been carefully combined into well-designed harmonious mixes. The herbs are thought of as a family of relationships which together bring about the desired results. Individual herbs are very rarely used on their own. Licorice in extremely high dosages for long periods of time may have a detrimental effect on various hormone secretions in women. This effect is virtually impossible in OHCO's products based on its small amount relative to the other herbs in the formulas and its inherent relationship with the rest of the herbal family. However, if one was to chew on a licorice root for weeks on end, negative effects could occur.
Dong quai (sometimes called Tang kuei or Chinese angelica sinensis) is one of the individual ingredients in both the Cold Snap and OHCO-Motion formulas. It is an herb that has been severely misunderstood in this country.
Its reputation is for influencing hormonal shifts in women and is generally available on health food store shelves. Used by itself, dong quai is generally too harsh, especially for women of certain constitutions. For example, large doses of the individual herb during the first trimester of pregnancy can cause the loss of the fetus. For this reason and others, dong quai is very seldom given by itself. However, if mixed properly with other "sister" ingredients, it very effectively prevents the fetal loss and is often prescribed for women who habitually abort.
The effect of dong quai in Cold Snap is largely to help transform the tightening and contracting process of a cold into a "softer" reaction. It also works to counteract any negatives some of the herbs might have if they were used by themselves. For example, bupleurum, another ingredient in Cold Snap, can be drying as a single ingredient. It is balanced by several herbs, among them dong quai. In OHCO-Motion, it supplements and harmonizes the Blood, nourishing it and moving it.
Dong quai is a non-toxic root. Its outer surface is middle brown with irregular wrinkles. The flesh is yellow or pale brown. The taste is somewhat acrid and its strong smell a sign of superior quality.
Dong quai is in Cold Snap and OHCO-Motion in appropriate amounts. The outcome to the various systems is strengthening and harmonizing. This effect cannot be attributed to the individual parts but rather to the whole of the synthesis that makes a complete formula. It is balance that makes Cold Snap and OHCO-Motion so extraordinary. The best way to judge them is to try them. Since dong quai does not act as a stimulant, the results are cumulative. You will be able to experience it as an ideal part of a combination of ingredients in balanced proportions for Westerners.
