Chinese herbs can protect the immune system to increase disease resistance.
Researchers have discovered that a class of Chinese herbs known as 'Immune Restoratives' strengthen and maintain the health of the immune system. A Chinese herbal medicine containing the scientifically proven herb Astragalus, blended with seven other potent immune restorative herbs (Atractylodes, Schizandra, Reishi, Codonopsis, Eleuthro, Ligustrum and Liquorice), represents a medical breakthrough in the treatment of immune system depletion and depression.
Evidence demonstrates that these rivers are powerful biological response modifiers (BRM), which increase the immune system's capacity to recover from infection, overcome disease and restore health. They achieve this by enhancing production of defensive white blood cells including phagocytes, leukocytes and lymphocytes, providing antibacterial and anti-viral action, increasing red blood cells and haemoglobin, stimulating hormones such as interferon, promoting release of protective proteins called immunoglobulins, reducing inflammation, improving detoxification and increasing the adaptive function of adrenal cortex to resist stress.
Research proves this Astragalus herb formula can restore a healthy immune system and speed up recovery from colds and flu, tonsillitis, bronchitis, glandular fever, Ross River virus and post-viral fatigue syndrome. This formula can help strengthen the immune system during surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and for chronic hepatitis and HIV / AIDS sufferers. It also assists with recovery from childhood illnesses, post-operatively and following physical trauma. For sports people and during times of physical stress it helps maintain peak effort, while increasing resistance to infection and enhancing general well-being at all ages.
The substantial immune restorative effects from the above Astragalus eight Chinese herb combination are exemplified by the following quote: –
"Physically debilitated from recurrent respiratory infections, I could not maintain my triathlon training program. I am a past Australian Junior Triathlon champion and a member of the current under 23 Australian Triathlete team. Blood tests indicated very low immunization. For 12 months before I started taking the Chinese Immune Tonic I experienced cold and flu-like infections every few weeks, constant swollen glands, extreme exhaustion and incomplete recovery after even the mildest exercise. normal and I was again in good physical condition. "
In summary an Immune Restorative formula provides broad immunological support to:
o Restore a weakened immune system at all ages
o Alleviate chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) eg after glandular fever
o Increase resistance to infection eg cold, flu, middle ear and tonsillitis
o Break the cycle of recurrent infections, eg cold, flu, middle ear and tonsillitis
o Enhance recovery from illness and surgery ie during convalescence
o Treat chronic viral and bacterial diseases, eg chronic hepatitis
o Provide immune support during chemotherapy and radiotherapy
