Still constrained by the current trend Clematis resources and funds, reflected in the market, is price. Clematis triumph this year, up 10 yuan from the system loading to 15 yuan, or 50%. Can be said that the new products this year, before the goods market and the less common origin, while the price rose too fast early, part of the business success of profit, choose to produce a new proactive shipping profits. 4 per month into the new, Yaonong stimulated by high prices, new goods become available, some businesses in producing positive purchases, up and down the market in short supply, drive prices down, On unification commodity price drop to 11 yuan. Although the short-term market decline, it should be noted down in the early production of new excavation will lead to producing a chain reaction down the enthusiasm.

Over the years, the domestic market mainly depend on the supply of Clematis Northeast and North Korea, with the consumption of resources, although the decline every year, but not depleted, prices rose by early clematis Northern reduce the impact of fresh produce to market the last two years by the Northern fresh produce all kinds of factors, reduced access to markets, directly driving the price higher Clematis, once these factors ruled out, the Northern fresh produce available, would constitute a domestic supply shock.

In addition, high prices by clematis, a large number of counterfeit goods of inferior quality flooding the market, constitute a trend for some of its adverse effects. But we should see that these factors can not change to reduce long-term resource Clematis facts and trends of wild species become home to change their fate inevitable depletion of ways.

There are literally millions of people who suffer from asthma. The condition can range from something very small that a person can basically go on with his life to severe, which can lead to death.

Fortunately, science and medicine have improved greatly. There are already several ways on how to cope and treat asthmatic conditions. The medications can be in the form of nebulizers or inhalers, as well as capsules and vitamins. What you may not be aware, though, is you can also use meditation to cope with the illness.

What Is Asthma?

Asthma is described as an inflammatory disease that affects the airways. A person with asthma will experience gasping of air, difficulty in breathing, coughing, and wheezing. This is also a chronic condition, which means it has the ability to reoccur a lot of times during the sufferers lifespan.

There are several reasons why a person can suffer from asthma. For one, it can be genetic. So if your mom has asthma, expect that you may develop one if not as a child then as an adult. It can also be caused by the environment. If you live in the area where there is a lot of smoke and pollution, theres a high possibility, you will experience an asthma attack. Certain allergens can also trigger asthma, including pollens and dust.

How to Deal with Asthma through Meditation

A more serious asthma can be very annoying and life threatening. It will compel you to remain awake for most times of the night. You cannot perform your daily activities. Otherwise, it will be more difficult for you to breathe. You have to take certain drugs that may have side effects such as drowsiness.

Thats why any kind of coping mechanism that is a lot safer and healthier will be more than welcome. The good thing about meditation is its definitely very safe and can be performed in conjunction with your existing treatment. A lot have also discovered that their symptoms slowly disappear or become more manageable as they perform meditation.

During meditation, you are asked to breathe deeply and slowly. When youre asthmatic, it may take some time before you can breathe properly. However, you can already exercise your lungs to take in more air. Meditation has also been proven to be effective in improving your immune system. If you have a strong body defenses, you will greatly reduce the possibility of suffering from asthma as an allergic reaction.

Using Subliminal Messages

You can further enhance the effectiveness of meditation by adding subliminal messages. These are usually described as hidden messages in the form of images, sounds, and words. In this case, we are talking about affirmations. While youre meditating, you can listen to some of the subliminal messages such as the following:

I can beat asthma.
I can feel the air filling out my lungs.
I believe my body cells are fighting the allergens and getting rid of the obstructions.

Just a note: since asthma can be dangerous, you need to coordinate with your doctor at all times.

Everybody is concerned about the possibility of catching the swine flu (H1N1), a form of influenza that has recently emerged. I have been asked what can be done to prevent infection by the swine flu using herbal supplements.

Volumes have been written on the subject of immune-boosting supplements. Since the question seems to be of vital concern, especially if you've been listening to the news lately, I will cover what I consider, only the best ways to boost your immune system with Traditional Chinese Medicine.

I must diverge for a moment, if you are serious about building a strong immune system as a few lifestyle issues must also be implemented. Otherwise, no matter what supplements you take, long term benefits will elude you. I will only list the absolute essential practices you need in your daily life to keep your immune system in balance or homeostasis.

Getting enough sleep is essential. Drink water and exercise everyday. (At the very least fit some walking into your day.) Exercise is also a great way to reduce stress, which is next on this list. Eat a healthy diet, think variety and consume as little sugar as possible. If you are not incorporating these practices into your everyday life, you are weakening your immune system and any variety of infections will find you a welcome host.

That being said, boosting your immune system with Chinese herbs can and will help you prevent infections, but herbal supplements are not an overnight quick fix. Chinese herbal formulas should be taken for at least one month for a powerful, long lasting effect. Adaptogenic herbs such as ginseng, shiitake mushrooms, ganoderma, (also known as reishi mushrooms), astragalus, cordyceps and eleuthero are all herbs at the top of the "boost the immune system" list. Adaptogenic herbs do exactly what their name implies, they assist the body in "adapting" to its environment. Keep in mind Chinese herbs are best taken within a formula, rather than individually, to enhance synergistic actions between herbs.

Scientific studies have shown these herbs all support and enhance the body's immune functions. These adaptogenic herbs have compounds such as polysaccharides which increase the body's natural killer cells, also known as lymphocytes. Extensive studies also support the claims that these herbs promote the activity of antibodies, improve the body's resistance to stress and infections, help balances stress, reduces allergies, improve energy and promote healthy liver functions, just to name a few. A side note, if you are taking immuno-suppresant drugs these herbs are not recommended as they have potent immune enhancing effects which can increase the risk of rejection of the
drugs and thus may severely compromise a person's health.

Most importantly, if you are looking to purchase any medicinal herbs please buy from a reliable source that you can trust. There are many companies who do not start with high quality crude herbs. Quality herbs, testing for contaminants, proper storage and preparation are all vital to ensuring a herbal products potency. I can't stress enough, the importance of knowing your buying from a reputable source.

I wish you good health and a strong and healthy immune system.

Herbal Medicine is an alternative form of medicine grounded on the use of plants in the form of herbal supplements, herbal extracts, raw herbs, herbal tinctures and otherherbal remedies such as herbal pills, ointments and various other herbal products. Herbal medicine function is on the rise. Many health enthusiasts are now turning to this plant-based and natural form of medicine as opposed to the chemical and pharmaceutical choice. A natural form, herbal medicine is the most ancient form of medicine use. Many modern day prescriptions and other conventional medicines are based in some way to herbal medicine.

Herbal Medicine can be explained as follows:

Herbal medicine is the use of plants to treat various diseases. Often also called verbalism or horology and also botanical medicine, herbal medicine is thought as alternative in the modern day although it has a very extensive and esteemed history. Many herbalists will use the entire plant, from the stems, flowers, leaves and even the roots, in the form of teas or tablets or any other methods. Such plants will contain natural, chemical substances that will treat the body for various different ailments.

And if you want to know some history of Herbal Medicine

Herbal Medicine dates back to the prehistoric times. Even the primitive man used plants for shelter, food, clothing and also medicine. Herbal medicine has evolved over time, with observations and experimentation. Each tribe & village throughout the world has experimented with the natural plant around them and developed a knowledge base of their regional herbs and herbal medicines. Many of these herbal experimentations hold true today also, with many conventional medicines stemming from such herbal origins. Just for instance, morphine had originated from the use of the opium poppy plant, while Echinacea was the common treatment to fight off infection before antibiotics came into existence.

Some Modern Day Herbal Medicine in use

While some people will feel that herbal remedies are simply an alternative form of medicine, they are more, they are actually the bases of at least one-fourth of all modern conventional medicines. Today, many herbs are synthesized for various pharmaceutical usages, stemming from ancient, healing traditions of such medicine practice. And if you are seeking to find a more natural form of medicine, you should visit a local health food store, or best try to find a local herbalist.

How to Prepare For Seasonal Affective Disorder

When the seasons change you have to be ready for a change in mood, especially as we move from fall into winter. Although it may not seem as drastic of a shift as you think, it matters more to our mental and physical states than you may know. Seasonal affective disorder is estimated to affect around 10 million Americans a year, and this isn’t even the full number of reported cases.

 

As we begin to lose the summer sun and transition into the darker months of the year, depression and fatigue seem to make that transition with us. But, there are ways to shake off the impending gloom and brighten your day, if you follow some of these steps you can combat seasonal affective disorder and find yourself being just as happy as you are in the warm summer months.

 

Try light therapy. Doctors have called this idea phase shifting. Because we lose sunlight so quickly as we head into the winter, you should start setting out bright lights when beginning your day. By eating breakfast and starting your daily routine under bright indoor lights, you get used to not having sunlight and can better acclimate to your new surroundings.

 

Exercise. Exercise. Exercise. Regular exercise works wonder for depression in general, so why would it not work for SAD-induced depression? By maintaining regular exercise habits you can work to get rid of the fatigue, depression and tiredness by adding at least 60 minutes a day of activity into your life.

 

These next two ideas go hand in hand, as both work together to not only combat SAD, but promote a healthy lifestyle. Maintain a heart-healthy diet and get plenty of sleep. No brainers? Maybe. But, you would be surprised at the amount of people who do not follow both or one of these guidelines, I’m sure you know someone who fits into those categories. Make sure to maintain a regular sleep schedule while keeping up with a heart-healthy diet in order to fight seasonal affective disorder.

 

Last, but not least, try acupuncture! Acupuncture is a great solution to combating SAD. There are various points on the body that have been known to alleviate symptoms of SAD. A primary point that should be addressed when treating SAD is Yintang, and when being treated for SAD by an acupuncturist you should be seen between one to two times a week.

 

Try some of these techniques and you should have no problem battling and conquering the seasonal affective disorder that may be bothering you this winter.

 

 

It starts with a tickle in the nose or throat, and then a runny nose. Then it progresses to frequent sneezing and a sore throat. Add in a cough, body aches, hoarseness, feverishness, chills, and a general malaise. Yes, it looks like you've caught the Common Cold.

According to Western Medical theory, the Common Cold is caused by the rhinovirus, a very adaptable virus that infects the nose, sinuses, ears, and bronchial tubes. An average duration for the Common Cold is one week. If the infection is severe, it could last for a couple of weeks.

There are many cold remedies out there. Although very few people in our culture know about it, Traditional Chinese Medicine is an effective treatment for the Common Cold.

From a Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, the primary cause of the Common Cold is a "Pathogenic Wind" that invades the body and interferes with regular functions of the respiratory and immune systems. It does sound a little odd to modern ears, but the ancient Chinese physicians knew that colds were caused by something unseen. Wind is something that cannot be seen, but its effects on the environment are quite apparent. Five thousand years ago the Chinese physicians did not have the luxury of a microscope to detect bacteria or viruses. However, they were very observant of weather patterns and the natural rhythms of their surrounding environment. So it was actually quite logical for the ancient Chinese to attribute an unseen pathogen to Wind.

When Pathogenic Wind invades from outside and attacks the body, it enters through nose and skin. It then interferes with the functions of the Wei Qi, the body's defensive energy that fights off foreign invaders. When the Wei Qi has been impeded, this gives rise to the symptoms associated with the Common Cold.

In ancient China the best doctors were not the ones who cured the sick. Instead, the greatest doctors were the ones who educated their patients and showed them how to prevent illness in the first place.

What does Traditional Chinese Medicine teach about how to prevent a Pathogenic Wind Invasion? The majority of the teachings fall under the category of common sense. Eat well. Have a healthy diet. Get plenty of sleep. Engage yourself in regular health exercises, such as yoga, qi gong, or meditation, to reduce your level of stress. Each of these things helps promote the strength of the Wei Qi and ensures your immune function will be working at an optimal level.

It is also a good idea minimize your exposure to wind. This includes not only outdoor breezes but also indoor winds, such as the cold blast of air coming from an air-conditioner. Wear clothing that is appropriate to protect you from a breezy environment. The back of the neck is an area that is quite vulnerable to Wind Invasion, so wearing a scarf is a wonderful way to ward yourself from a Pathogenic Wind.

However, if you do succumb to a Pathogenic Wind Invasion, both acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulas can help lessen the severity and shorten the duration of the invasion. This is because appropriate acupuncture treatments and certain herbal formulas are tailored to specifically drive the Pathogenic Wind out of the body, regulate the functions of the Wei Qi and alleviate the prevalent symptoms that arisen. When the Pathogenic Wind is driven out, the Wei Qi function is no longer impeded and will allow the body to recover in a much quicker fashion. A cold that could have lasted eight days might now only last three.

As a Licensed Acupuncturist, it always pleases me to see the reaction that my patients have after a treatment. "Hey! I can actually breath through my nose again." "Wow! I don't feel the strong urge to cough anymore." "My chest just doesn't feel as tight as it did when I came in." These are some of the typical responses that I have heard after I've treated someone for a Pathogenic Wind Invasion. Many of these patients were a little skeptical when they came in, but they were all seeking a treatment that would help rid them of their Common Cold symptoms. They were surprised at their realization - Traditional Chinese Medicine is effective for treating the Common Cold.

Acupuncture plays an important role in traditional Chinese medicine, and it is a widely recognized part of Western medicine as well. It has been shown to help reduce the symptoms of depression, ease the pain of arthritis, reduce the incidence of migraine, and now it is becoming more common in the treatment of infertility.

For decades, couples have turned to high tech medical treatments such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) and drugs like Clomid, but acupuncture is surging in popularity due to not only its more holistic treatment of infertility, but also its high success rate.

Acupuncture can help women with a wide variety of fertility troubles. It works primarily by stimulating pelvic blood flow, restoring the proper flow of Qi, and balancing the body. Women with irregular menstrual cycles or amenorrhea (no menstrual cycles), endometriosis, luteal phase defect, irregular ovulation, thin endometrium, or even recurrent miscarriage can benefit from acupuncture.

Acupuncture can stimulate ovulation as much as some fertility drugs, making it an excellent option for women who are suffering from irregular ovulation or anovulatory cycles. Women with poor egg quality may also benefit from acupuncture, as pelvic blood flow is restored and egg quality can be improved by better nourishment. Women with unexplained infertility may especially benefit from acupuncture.

Women are not the only ones who can benefit from acupuncture. Studies show that men with low sperm counts or low sperm motility can have both improved with acupuncture. A higher sperm count and more active sperm can make it easier for couples to get pregnant naturally or via IVF.

Acupuncture can be used alone in the treatment of infertility or in conjunction with more high-tech infertility treatments. In fact, beginning acupuncture prior to IVF treatments can lead to a higher success rate, according to a study published in Fertility and Sterility.

Some people may not be good candidates for this treatment alone: women with structural abnormalities, scarring of the fallopian tubes, or who have aging eggs may need to use acupuncture in conjunction with other infertility treatments (such as surgery or IVF) for the best possible results.

Acupuncture is not simply an alternative medical treatment for infertility; it is a holistic natural treatment that can be used on its own to assist couples in attaining pregnancy, to address infertility issues, or to be used in conjunction with high tech infertility treatments. Acupuncture treatment for infertility seeks to treat the root cause of the problem, not merely the symptom.
