The following Video was created for my students to learn about Chinese Herbal Medicine treatments for suppurative inflammation and infection while I was attending a conference overseas in 2015.
A total of 6 herbs in the “Clear Heat and Resolve Toxicity” Category were introduced in this video. They are mainly used to treat stagnation of fire-toxin as manifested in hot, red, painful and swollen lesions as the result of suppurative inflammation and infection of the skin and other tissues.
A minority of these herbs can also treat various forms of tumors and cancers.
Many of these herbs are indicated for carbuncle, furuncle, pulmonary and breast abscesses, mastitis, erysipelas, pestilent maculae, mumps, sore throat, tonsillitis, appendicitis, pharyngitis, laryngitis, encephalitis and dysentery of the heat type.
Some of these herbs are also commonly prescribed to treat various forms of tumors and cancers, as well as snake and insect bites.
I hope you enjoyed watching this video and have gained a different perspective on Chinese Herbal Medicinal treatments as a result.
For over 5000 years, our ancestors of the ancient times used the Chinese Herbal Medicines mentioned in this video to treat suppurative inflammation and infection with great success.
Our Chinese Medicine is a unique and complete medical system which was developed well over 2000+ years ago and which has been continuously developed and expanded on over the centuries. It is used today in the Eastern Medicine Wing’s that exist in all major hospitals in China. Today, Chinese Medicine continues to be a highly popular and widely used alternative medicine in all Asian countries and increasingly in European and Western countries.
