Q-O-Fire---Nature's Proven Relief for Inflammation Symptoms
Inflammation is a basic way in which the body reacts to infection, irritation or other injury. Inflammation is a type of immune response, it is not a disease, but it is associated with many diseases. In fact any disease with suffix “itis” means inflammation. Inflammations are usually treated with antibiotics/drugs according to the particular disease. However, there are inflammations for which no cure are available (e.g., AIDS), or after the infections were killed by antibiotics/drugs, some symptoms of inflammation persist, which may have been caused by the scars, cellular debris, or toxins of the infection/drug interactions, or auto-immune problems. Western medications may not be effective to relieve all symptoms, examples include aging inflammation, Sjogren’s syndrome (dry eyes & mouth), herpes, lupus, shingles, hay fever, bad smell of mouth, etc.
Inflammation are identified by five characteristics: pain, swelling, redness, heat, and organ dysfunction in the affected area. The symptoms of chronic inflammation are similar, but could exist for a prolonged period without being relieved.
In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) theory, pain &/or swelling with redness &/or heat is considered as over-excited (hyper) Qi, or bodily Fire, in the body systems. Usually regarded as due to low in Yin-fluid, called bodily Water, and high in bodily Fire, which indicated the lack of body fluids and/or immune function deficiencies. The TCM way to tackle these problems is to balance the bodily Fire and Water by improving body fluids production (i.e., anti-aging) and enhancing the immune functions, therefore the body itself can repair the scars, flush out the debris or toxins, quell the heat and thus relieve the symptoms. In China, the basic formulas consisting Q-O-Fire were proven over the years to relieve most symptoms except in organ dysfunction or some allergic conditions. Q-O-Fire has no known side effects.
