首乌片 / Shou Wu Pian

Treats the following symptoms:

Chinese medicine verifies the prosperity and decay of Qi and Blood based on the glory and dryness of hair, which is a pioneering thought of the ancients in the history of medicine. Chinese medicine believes that hair is related to Kidney, Liver, Spleen and Stomach. Hair is especially close to the Kidney; a sufficient working Kidney is the foundation of healthy hair. The Liver stores the Blood, if the Liver Blood is sufficient, the hair is nourished so that it is not easy to lose hair. The Spleen controls the digestive process and transports Mizutani Essence to nourish the hair. The principles of nourishing hair are nourishing Kidney and Essence, Qi and Blood, and reconciling Spleen and Stomach.

Replenish Essence can help to improve the signs of ageing in the elderly, such as white hair, tooth decay, age spots, can promote the improvement of immunity, inhibit the deposition of “lipofuscin” that can make people’s body organs age.

Disease description:

The immune system serves to protect our bodies against viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites. The system in itself is highly complex and science has yet to fully understand it. Unfortunately, the body’s defence does not always work optimally and sometimes pathogens manage to overcome our natural defence, making the body susceptible to infections such as colds and flu and other diseases. In some cases, over-reactions of the immune system can lead to allergies or autoimmune diseases. Nutrition, fresh air and exercise have an important role in strengthening the immune system.

Explanation according to the Traditional Chinese Medicine:

The immune system is what Chinese medicine calls Zhengqi or Wei Qi and it is the body’s defence mechanism. If the organs and meridians Qi are insufficient, the Evil will invade the body and cause diseases. Therefore, boosting and balancing the immune system is improving the body’s ability to resist Evil or to recover from chronic diseases by supplementing Qi and Blood.
