Throughout history, and across cultures, we observe an intimate link between human vitality and the body's immunity - the ability to conserve and heal itself in face of injury, disease, stress, other traumatic conditions - and time. This link leads to common signs of loss of immunity and aging, including greying hair, loose skin, fragile bones, muscle shrinkage, blood stasis, muscle pain and unsightly veins. Modern western health care has defined vitality and immunity in terms of the condition and reaction of various systems and organs within a body in face of outside stimulus. This underlies a medical philosophy where the whole body is seen as a sum of individual sustaining systems and organs. As a result, western healthcare treats immunity by curing symptoms only after they surface. Western health has relied on synthetic cures and cosmetic procedures that target and re-vitalize ailing body parts and organs instead of treating the human body as a whole.
Traditional Chinese herbalists, on the other hand, have considered vitality and immunity as intertwined aspects of the human body. The underlying philosophy is the belief that symptoms are a result of disharmony in the flow of Qi. Only by naturally reviving harmony can the body regain its immunity and vitality. As a result, traditional Chinese herbal herbalism (over 5000 years) has remained committed to deciphering natural formulas for revitalizing the flow of Qi i.e. re-establishing the natural balance between each bodily organ and associated system of organs (e.g. Kidney is part of the bigger Urinary System). Chinese herbal formulas discovered over the centuries focus on enhancing the body's ability to repair itself (overcoming organ degeneration), administering and increasing intake of fundamental substances for boosting internal bodily activity, and actively removing metabolic wastes. If you are looking for immunity-enhancing herbs that can revitalize your body and improve well being, then incorporating the use of Chinese immunity-boosting herbs alongside healthy nutrition is your sure shot way of getting your body back on track.
