TCM contribution to HIV/AIDs (A1 Capsule)

HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus which with time generates to Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome. Without treatment, the average survival time after been infected with HIV is estimated to be 9 to 11 years. Infections occur by blood, pre-ejaculation, semen, vaginal fluid, or breast milk. HIV affect vital cells in the immune system such as helper T-cell (Specifically CD4 + T cell), microphage and dendritic cell. The disease kills the CD4 cells and when the CD4 cell number reduces below critical level, cell-mediating immunity is lost, and the body becomes susceptible to Opportunistic infection.

What A1 capsule does is that it increases the number of CD4+lymphocyte which helps to prevent and relieve the complications of the virus.  A1 capsule is focused in improving the immunity of patients with this virus. It could be used along side with the administered retro-viral drugs.
Cordyceps could also be used along side with the A1 capsule because it helps regulate the immune system an…

One of the Most Used TCM Products (Ganoderma lucidum)

Immunity is the ability of the body to resist harmful micro-organism from entering the body through multi-cellular organisms (Blood cells).  The system contains two component which are the innate component and the adaptive component. The innate component are designed to recognise foreign substance and react which is called inflammation (set on fire) while the adaptive component are design to identify body substance and don’t react this is called immunity. So our health can now be seen as a state where the body is spared through the adaptive component and the disease or foreign body is eliminated through the innate component. if the reverse is the case, we fall sick. The adaptive component can be divided into two parts which is the natural and artificial component. The common example of the artificial component is the immunization or vaccination we give to our children when they are yo…

How Can I help my workaholic Organ

We as humans have organs which constitute part of our biological systems that guarantees or survival on earth. Just like our vehicles, we periodically we check some part of the vehicle systems which we general call car maintenance. We spend a lot on this vehicle parts because we place much value on it because they are expensive. Life is also quiet expensive but we don’t know the value until we start getting sick and we are told we need to do some internal organ transplant like the kidney and all that. Just as it is with vehicle maintenance, when you maintain your vehicle part, it serves you longer.   We really want to discuss a very important body organ which is the LIVER. If the liver is an employee in your firm I’m sure you would agree with me that he is under paid, considering how your life-style makes the liver work unnecessarily. The liver is in charge of detoxification. When we consume anything the body sees as toxic, say alcohol, the liver goes to work to see that the your body …
