Lightbulb Viral Bronchitis Emedicine
Viral Bronchitis Emedicine - Cold Flu Treatment, Antibiotics, and Herbs
Antibiotic overuse (especially for the common cold) has led to antibiotic resistance. Natural antibiotics and anti viral herbs that may boost immune system are discussed, plus the types of cold and flu, and cough and cold in a weak immune system.

15 Anti-Viral Chinese Herbs Proven Effective in Human Studies
Andrographis (Chuan xin lian): Viral hepatitis, encephalitis B, herpes zoster, viral influenza Astragalus (Huang qi): Restores immune function in immune suppression from chemotherapy, increases IgA, IgG, and interferon production Deer antler (Lu rong): Promotes lymphocyte transformation and treats leukopenia due to chronic benzene poisoning, promotes bone marrow function Ganoderma (Ling zhi): Treats hepatitis, chronic bronchitis, cardiovascular disease, altitude sickness, cancer (especially leukemia) Ginseng Ren shen: Increases resistance by stimulating adrenal gland via pituitary Isatis (Da qing ye, Ban lan gen): Encephalitis B, measles, mumps, infectious hepatitis, URTI Licorice (Gan cao): In pulmonary TB, it increased ESR - arthritis and hepatomegaly from hepatitis - acute and chronic hepatitis Lonicera (Jin yin hua): Severe acute pneumonia, bacillary dysntery Oldenlandia (Bai hua she she cao): Peritonitis, UTI, hepatitis, chronic bronchitis Phellodendron (Huang bai): Meningitis, dysentery, GI infection, conjunctivitis, UTI, candidal/trichomonal vaginitis Polygonum (He shou wu): Malaria Polygonum cuspidatum (Hu zhang): Lung infections, tonsillitis, hepatitis, RA, osteoarthritis Salvia (Dan shen): Hepatitis, SLE Siberian ginseng (Wu jia pi): Xue and qi xu - improves leukocyte count in 70% of leukopenic patients - caution when there is heat Sophora (Shan dou gen): Alkaloids effective in countering leukopenia due to radiation Viola (Zi hua di ding): TB.

  • Fever is thought to be the 'heat of battle' between pathogenic and righteous qi.
  • In OM, you have a fever if you feel hot, even if your thermometer shows a normal body temperature.
  • Chills are a sign that the pathogen is winning, while fever is a sign that your body is winning.

Types of Colds and Flu in Oriental Medicine Wind-Cold * Symptoms: Feeling of cold, chills more than fever, cough, congestion, fatigue * Herb Formulas: if no sweating - Ephedra Formula; if more body aches - Kudzu Tincture * Kitchen Medicine: Fresh ginger or garlic tea (warming) There has been a gradual introduction to the world of Chronic Bronchitis projected in this article. We had done this so that the actual meaning of the article will sink within you.

Oriental Medicine Concepts of Immunity
Wei (pronounced 'way') qi ('chee') is the protective qi. This qi is thought to circulate in the more superficial levels (skin and muscles). In biomedical terms, it is probably not the entire immune system, but the part of it that deals with external invasions. Protective qi is controlled by Lung organ-system, and can be compromised by overwork, grief, smoking, not eating, and talking too much. We were a bit tentative when embarking on this project on Chronic Bronchitis. However, using the grit and determination we have, we have produced some fine reading material on Chronic Bronchitis.
  • Tiredness, Qi deficiency, & Weakness The fight may take so much of your energy that you can do nothing but lay in bed.
  • You may also lose your appetite, which is a sign of qi deficiency in OM.
  • Some people are more constitutionally weaker from birth, especially those with childhood asthma and allergies.
  • These are often metal or water type people.
  • They need to be especially vigilant in prevention.
  • Using the intuition I had on Bronchitis, I thought that writing this article would indeed be worth the trouble.
  • Most of the relevant information on Bronchitis has been included here. Big Grin

Sweating (or 'Exterior-Releasing') is a Major Therapy in OM
The type of invasion may be identified by whether or not the patient is sweating, and whether or not that sweating is leading to improvement in your health An idle brain, is a devil's workshop they say. Using this ideology in mind, we ventured to write on Chronic Bronchitis, so that something productive would be achieved of our minds.

Wind-Heat * Symptoms: Feeling of heat, fever more than chills, sore throat or cough, body aches, red eyes, irritability * Herb Formulas: More sore throat - Honeysuckle & Forsythia Formula; More cough - Mulberry & Chrysanthemum Formula * Kitchen Medicine: Mint or chysanthemum tea (cooling) Writing something about Bronchitis seemed to be something illogical in the beginning. However, with the progress of matter, it seemed logical. Matter just started pouring in, to give you this finished product.

Most people don't realize that western biomedical understanding didn't include the immune system until very recently. The first vaccine was developed in the late 1800's, and most of the immune system was not understood until the 1960's. Oriental Medicine has been diagnosing and treating immune system diseases with herbs since as early as 150 A.D. when the first systematic book on externally contracted illnesses, the "Cold Damage Classic" was written. We had at first written a rough assignment on Chronic Bronchitis. Then after a few improvisions and enhancements here and there, we have ended up with this end product. Smile

These OM disease theories are not without controversy; some biomedical research has concluded that cold temperatures, for example, do not contribute to getting sick. However, since biomedicine only became aware of the immune system in the 1960's, and OM has been treating colds and flu's for thousands of years, I would slightly favor the application of OM. It is true that OM's theories may be inexact at the same time that the treatments is applies according to those theories are effective. In another thousand years, once biomedical researchers and OM practitioners have tested and sifted through OM theories and treatments, we will have a stronger, more accurate, and integrated medical system. Opportunity knocks once. So when we got the opportunity to write on Chronic Bronchitis, we did not let the opportunity slip from our hands, and got down to writing on Chronic Bronchitis. Smile

Vulnerability occurs particularly when you are tired, or from excessive environmental influences like cold, heat, dryness, and dampness- each of these is associated with a season when that pathogen is more prevalent Coordinating matter regarding to Chronic Bronchitis took a lot of time. However, with the progress of time, we not only gathered more matter, we also learnt more about Chronic Bronchitis.

Chinese Herbs Have Successfully Treated and Caused Remission of Viral Hepatitis and AIDS
In clinical research studies on human beings, at least 15 herbs have been shown to stimulate the immune system and destroy viruses and bacteria (see next table). Chinese herbs appear to have an effect against bacteria and viruses directly, and they stimulate and strengthen the immune system (wei qi) in doing its job of ridding the body of pathogens.

Entrance of the Pathogen
The Lung (a system of correspondences including the lung, throat, nose, and skin) is the most exterior and most vulnerable organ. Sweating opens the pores, and 'wind' enters through pores. Wind can be thought of as the pathogen itself, since another quality (cold, damp, or heat, for example) is usually attached to describe the pathogen. Wind-heat, then, is the invasion of the body by a heat pathogen. Our objective of this article on Chronic Bronchitis was to arouse your interest in it. Bring back the acquired knowledge of Chronic Bronchitis, and compare it with what we have printed here.
