According to the concept of immunology, no matter if the immune reaction belongs to physiological or pathological factors, all the developing factors are crucial to disease formation. The basic rule for treating illness is to shift the pathological immune reaction to a normal physiological immune reaction.
In TCM, it is expressed by regulating the yin and yang balance, by applying holistic approaches to enhance the system’s harmony
The immune modulation effect of Chinese medicine is extremely complex, and incorporates the constitution of the individual, the pathogens, and the nature of plants, far beyond what western science has even begun to consider. The beautiful end result is that it simply works.
On a daily basis, we are constantly exposed to potentially harmful microbes of all sorts. Our immune system, a network of intricate stages and pathways in the body, protects us against these harmful microbes as well as certain diseases
Your immune system is your strongest defense against illness. Everyone is born with an innate immunity that has the purpose of limiting or preventing infection by acting as a barrier to keep harmful materials from entering your body.
“Yu-Ping-Feng-San (YPFS) is a classical traditional Chinese medicine that is widely used for treatment of the diseases in respiratory systems, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) recognized as chronic inflammatory disease. However, the molecular mechanism remains unclear. Here we detected the factors involved in transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF-β1)/Smad2 signaling pathway and inflammatory cytokines, to clarify whether YPFS could attenuate inflammatory response dependent on TGF-β1/Smad2 signaling in COPD rats or cigarette smoke extract (CSE)-treated human bronchial epithelial (Beas-2B) cells.”
Post Viral Syndromes and Post Viral Chronic Disease
Some viral infections are harder for the body to clear, and may cause long lasting or chronic disease.
Many chronic conditions are caused by chronic or latent viral infection, and the body needs more support to restore health and wellness.
The microbiome consists of complex interactions of bacteria, parasites and viruses, and we are the host.
On a small scale, most organisms, such as bacteria, have viruses that infect them, and on a larger scale the same thing is true for the planet, in that case we are part of the microbiome, we are the bacteria, virus or parasite.
The infecting virus either causes death (cell death), or it can cause a symbiotic relationship. In some cases the infecting virus leads to increased health for both the host and the virus.
Prebiotics are essential for the got microbiome, it i the food for healthy bacteria Prebiotic suppress harmful bacteria
